So I'm wondering if any of y'all think it would effect any players decision on wanting to come here or play here?
How come people even consider this for a split second?
I know something as little as that would be dumb but who knows..
Who knows? Everyone knows this sentence should have stopped at dumb.
Players care about Money first. Role on the team second, and the Prestige of the team 3rd (which is tied to wins and losses and how well it is run not what the logo is).
Maybe they don't wanna be laughed at from others around the league
The team name didn't get changed to the Gay Unicorns, it got changed to Pelicans. You also have to look at the logo, they clearly plan to emphasize New Orleans as much or more than Pelicans. After the initial reaction this week no one will give it a second thought.
