I have done an Excel database for all franchises (NFL, CFL, NHL, MLB, NBA) so I want to be sure which franchise is in what city and when and all I have done is put in win/loss/tie with overtime and shootout for the records and what division they were in and did they win any divisions along with league championships and more.. so I would rather be safe than sorry to make sure all my data is continuing with each franchise move and other things.

My point is it is not necessary for teams to swap histories as that would be confusing so fast no one will be able to figure out where the specific franchise is originally from.. simple enough leave the team histories alone as is, that's all..

Does it really matter? Who cares? Okay, I guess the handful of hardcore statistical nuts might care, but if they get confused by a name change then they better turn in their calculators...

There is that. :P

If they can handle the Steagles or Card-Pitts, then they can handle this.

Yesterday evening during the drive-time local sports radio show, they had callers giving their suggestions for rebranded Hornets. During the 10 minutes or so that I could stand to listen, the various suggestions I heard are why I'm so afraid of a re-brand:

New Orleans Shuckers (with oysters as clappers behind basket to distract free-throw shooters).

New Orleans Po-Boys

New Orleans Soul

New Orleans Pincers or Claws

New Orleans Marsh....

and of course, the ubiquitous "let's get the Jazz name back" contingent.

I would love that. I think it would go over very well with the fans...but you've got the Milwuakee Bucks already in the NBA. Plus I can't see a Saints owner calling his basketball team the Buccaneers.

My top 3 realistic choices would be:

[1] Pilots

[2] Brass

[3] Rogues

Which is sad because of a history with the name. I also would love Privateers but the University of New Orleans uses that. So that's another out of the question name.

So tell me why Pilots would be a good name for NOLA it just doe not seem to fit the mold but that's me.

If they want to go the pirate route, Corsairs is the best choice.
