re: Mike and Mike rip on Pelicans

At first I was did not really like the Pelicans but I did like it better than the choices they were choosing from...

Now I love the Pelicans...I think it is the us against them feeling from people making fun of the name...

Best way to shut everybody up is to WIN..

VooDoo, Krewe, etc, were just too corny and even more locally specific and subject to possible ridicule than the Pelicans.


I have to disagree. Krewe is a fantastic name that is locally UNIQUE. People hated my Devil's advocate routine, but it was quite indicative of the reaction thus far. Those two MAY have been ridiculed, but we know for certain that Pelicans WAS/IS ridiculed. We're just going to have to get used to hearing shite about it.

Krewe was a much, much better option, in my opinion, but that ship has sailed. Now I just have to fight against the oral farts that are Pels and Pellies.

It's a mediocre name and all of this 'state connection' and 'ecological' rhetoric is just a sloppy paint job to cover that Benson didn't want to spend another million or so acquiring the Voodoo brand from the AFL.


From what I was told, Benson did want Voodoo. The rest of this isnt really true.

Gayle at one point was big on Spirit

spurs


one of the better names in the league

1) it's alliterative

2) it's relevant

3) it's unique

Tom Benson is a senile old man. His best thoughts these days die of loneliness.

Naming a professional team Pelicans, no matter what the shite they play, is a stupid idea. End of story.

Anybody who rips on us for having a moronic name has a solid footing to fight from.

Pelicans is nowhere near the worst NBA name.

Nets?.....Wow. Scintillatingly exciting.
Wizards?.....Lame
Hawks?...WTF do Hawks have to do with Atlanta?
Lakers?....Minnesota land of 1000 lakes, not LA
Cavaliers?.....That's almost as silly as 'Jazz'.
Kings?....Must have thought awhile on that one.

And of course, the piece de resistance.....

Utah Jazz ???????

At least our name has SOMETHING TO DO WITH OUR STATE - state flag, state seal, state bird...And it is a mean, feisty bird also.

The logo is awesome too...

...I REALLY wanted Jazz. That is the best and most perfect name for us. Would have been best name in NBA. "New Orleans Jazz."

New Orleans Pelicans are in the top half of NBA names that make sense.

Red Sox. White sox. frickING SOCKS.

Orioles. Blue Jays. Cardinals. I mean...how gay are those birds?

There is a big, bad, rough and tumble Football team named the damn Cardinals.

And the BROWNS! Come on.

You're just touching the tip of the iceberg on terrible names or names that have nothing associated with the city or state they are in.
