That's just it. Nobody is that worked up and its disingenuous to imply that they are. Voicing displeasure does not equate to suicidal tendencies. It's very easy to make fun of the name and that's how I'm going to voice my disapproval as a fan and supporter of the team.

I feel like you and I are playing the parts of opposing Devil's advocates here.

I may fall out of my chair if Gordon calls it a "pretty good name."

That's the thing though, 90% of the reaction has been "I wish it was brass or Krewe" from everyone outside those 10 hornetards that like to "be different" as they admitted multiple times in the thread

I agree. There's seems to be 2 or 3 names that would have universally accepted as at least "fine." Instead, they took the choice that 3% of the population seems to love, while the rest either absolutely hate it and/or are trying to convince themselves that its not as bad as it sounds.

That's great news. I hope its Pelicans then.

The rest of the country, judging from National sites, thinks Cajuns and Crawfish are great names.

Think about that.

brass or Krewe

Both are absolutely fricking awful. Out of the two I guess Brass would be the least shitty, but Krewe? GTFO.

Or not giving a frick what National people think. Not one single frick given.

New Orleanians are "contrarions" [sic] by nature.

They think they know us. They think we are Cajun in New Orleans. They don't know jack shite about us.

What was the poll on the Thunder by the way? I bet it was brutal.

Again, no one will care in about a year.

Okay: then let us look at the state of Louisiana

Hate it: 34%
Don't like it: 21%
No strong opinion: 14%
Love it: 9%
Like it: 8%

55% of Louisiana either "hate it" or "don't like it" to 17% who "like it" or "love it"

What don't you get about "No matter what we named them, outside of horrible cliches like Cajun, this would have been the reaction.'

We live in a cynical internet age, where everyone is trying to outdo themselves over how big of a dick they can be. Twitter reaction is the most irrelevant thing I can think of.

I'm sure its a very scientific poll, broken up by demographics.
