Rebrand updates



TP article on the rebrand with several frequently asked questions answered.
quote:

"We're going to take this whole off season on things like the dance team, mascot, all those things and really provide the fans an opportunity to participate in what that future is going to be.

...You look at all the things that have a 'bee' in it or a 'buzz' or anything else, those things have to be changed. And not that they have to be changed to a 'Pelicans' reference. It could be a regional or a New Orleans local reference as well. That opens up the possibilities. But that will be a full off-season project and likely late in the summer we'll do a uniform unveiling. That's kind of on the NBA's timeline, and we'll have a court design that will be different an unveiled over the course of the offseason as well

I hate to say it but this kind of reeks. It sounds like they had no freaking idea about anything other than the name of the team and the logo/color scheme.

They probably didn't. The normal rebrand process is done in 2-3 years for a reason.

. Certainly our mascot Hugo is still going to be around. He's still going to be doing appearances throughout the offseason,as will the Honeybees. It's part of our legacy,so having them continue to make appearances during this transition period makes sense for us."


They didn't squash Hugo yet

Damn. I really expected uniforms by draft time. It seems weird that they wouldn't have that for Draft Picks or Free Agents to hold up and all that.

Definitely can't wait to see the court design, but I keep thinking we are going to go with some kind of two tone thing like the Cavs court. Would love to see a darker wood, really hardwood-old school look.

re: Rebrand updates


If they turn the dance team into another version of the Saintsations I'm gonna be pissed.

The uniforms will be completed by the time FA opens and the NBA Draft.

AGREE! I bought my Pelican shirt, hat and coffee mug months ago when they first came out. After my initial shock with the name, I've been loving the "Pelicans" mainly because I thought the org. really did their homework and had every detail researched, build and tuned to perfections.
Now it sounds like they settled for a re-brand that was far from their first choice (for whatever reason).

Yeah that's exactly why you bought the gear and that's exactly what they're doing. They dont know what they're doing just decided to name it that with no other thoughts on the matter. Come on man.

JJ2, you make an excellent point. Thank you. I retract my previous statement and apologize to readers posting such a shallow, illogical comment.

You can shorten that and call them the Peli Dancers.

But I will always stand behind my name of Pel's Belles.

It rhymes, conjures up images of our Southern roots and relates to a song that has absolutely nothing to do with an NBA dance team in a small market city.

re: Rebrand updates


Not so concerned with what they call the dancers. Just don't want them in those 1960's style modest costumes, wearing support hose doing flag team routines like the poor Saintsations. Pathetic. Keep the fly girl in the Pelican chicks.
