re: The Best Way to Make a Bad Name Good

It all depends on the logo. If the logo and colors are awesome, the Pelicans name will be awesome. If the logo sucks, the name is going to suck too.

It's not a bad name though. Just a little different.

Actually, no, but I don't think you'll be satisfied with any response here.

Actually yes, an absurd example by definition is absurd.

Damn this board is thick these days.

I agree. There are certain people that don't normally post here posting quite often.

No. It's not. Twist the words how you want, but use of the absurd in making a point does make mean that point absurd. Often times, it shows the other side to be absurd, or at least that is the intent.

Perhaps he failed, but I don't think so.

ditto. Extending an analogy to it's utmost almost always lends to an improper comparison because in the end they all have a fallacy at a certain point. There's a theory or some such in debate about that but I can never remember the name of it.

Let me know when you know what you are talking about.

Cheers.

ETA: You may be talking about the "Causal Slippery Slope." That does not apply. And I don't think he's saying X is Y. He's saying X is like Y in some respects and is going from there.

It's like "extending an analogy to it's failure point" or something. psychology was a long time ago.

You are way over thinking this one. The point is people were laughing at a name we can't change, so we have to change the perception, and we won't change the outside perception if we're busy running down the name ourselves. I apologize if using extreme examples in an attempt to be obvious actually obfuscated things because it triggered some pet peeve of yours about absurd examples.

This isn't that. That is saying, "This team is like a horse because it pulls alot of weight with it." Then saying that because you must detach the weight from the horse to keep the horse from working itself to death, we must detach weight from the team to keep it from failing, therefore we must trade so and so.

This is saying, if something with more than 10X worth negativity can be `owned', then so can something with X negativity can. It's a direct, logical comparison, using the 10X+ bit of information to prove the point in one fell swoop.
