I knew you'd defend the horrible reporting.
You don't remember the article y'all posted saying it was narrowed down to the angels and spirits?
When y'all jumped to conclusions like true amateurs would.
Of course you'd defend that. what a joke
Where's the defense? I outlined the timeframe, pointing out the work of two different writers, the first of which was in May, just a few weeks after Benson's agreement to purchase the team. Even in the Yahoo piece, it is clear that names were considered and discarded over time.
And, here's the link and quotes, none of which say it was done or narrowed to two and only two: LINK
Angels and Spirit Are the Two Leading Names for a Hornets’ Rebrand
Hornets 247 has acquired information that points to the Angels and Spirit as the two leading names in the event of a rebrand.
Recent filings to the Louisiana Secretary of State list both “The New Orleans Louisiana Angels, LLC” and “The New Orleans Louisiana Spirit, LLC” as reserved names. There are also additional filings reserving logo’s for both names. Additionally, the city for all four filings is listed as Metairie, where the New Orleans Saints are headquartered and registered.
There had been talk about both of these names since Tom Benson bought the team and the filings seem to confirm that.
There are no filings for names like “Brass” or “Krewe” as far as we’re aware.
In his introductory press conference, new owner Tom Benson stated that he would like to change the name of the team saying, “You’ve got to know we’re working on it. We’d like to change it tomorrow. We have not gotten that approved, but we’re not letting up on it, either.”
The rebranding process does not happen overnight, and cannot officially occur until Benson is approved as the new owner by the NBA’s Board of Governors, however Benson is getting a head start. Once he is approved as the new owner, expect the decisions on a rebrand to come quickly.
