The Best Way to Make a Bad Name Good


Is to own it.

Lots of hate on Pelicans last night both locally and nationally, but just like the Nword and Gay/Queer, you can make a bad label good if you embrace it hard enough. Once you people have had your reaction, hop on the bandwagon.

I'm really going to miss Hornets. I grew up a fan of the Charlotte Hornets and was stoked when they moved here.

Pelicans is fine, it's just not as good as hornets IMO

If people can own Saints, then Pelicans will be fine. Just give it time.

When you have to compare your franchise's name to being called the Nword, you know its fricking awful.

That doesn't sound very embracey

I was actually surprised at the reaction, it wasn't negative as much as taken as a joke. That's not good.

Did he have to? I think he chose to in order to make a point using an absurd example.

If the University of Oregon / Nike can make Donald Duck's bastard child cool, then we can make a Pelican not suck, right? It just takes a good uniform, apparently.
