New Orleans ditching Hornets name?

Recommended Posts

Crawdads is still better than Bobcats.

It wouldn't be a horrible thing to see something along the lines of New Orleans Riverpilots or something like that - makes sense.

I don't know if this has been suggested, but would it be a horrible thing to see the old days of same-city nicknames return? New York Giants did it, as did a few others, I think.

New Orleans Saints for the NBA team too, maybe with some different colors?

I'd love that too, Saints. I'd even use the same identity, etc. I'm sure it wouldn't be allowed but with the same owner, why not?

Or, what about at least the same black/gold color scheme? I love how the Seahawks and Sounders (same owners) have very similar colors. Make black/gold the unofficial colors of New Orleans.

Wouldn't the NFL be able to sue the NBA? I know the owner wouldn't sue himself, but that would be directly copying something that is a part of the NFL's brand as an entirety. Maybe not, I'm just asking. The real problem would arise when he decides to sell one of the teams.

Not sure but pro sports are probably too complicated now for it to ever happen. I believe they do this in Europe with soccer and basketball teams that are owned by the same groups having the same names. Here is Real Madrid basketball. Same crest as soccer.

That's because they're both fielded by the same sporting organization. Not even quite the same as having the same owner, who could sell off one of the teams at any time.

In this age of merchandising, no two teams would be allowed to have the same name.

That's Europe. This is America. We don't have Eurotrash sporting culture and traditions, we have American sporting culture and traditions.

I'm guessing it's a concept but it's pretty sweet. I don't think Arcangels makes for a good name, but the logo could probably translate into another name.

We should be open to incorporating things, if they make sense, from all cultures (not that this does or doesn't make sense for NOLA). Just because it's not American doesn't make it bad. Believe me there are plenty of things in American leagues that are in need of fixing.

Fan-created logo by a prevalent poster on the Hornetsreport website. He's also come up with a whole set-up for "Krewe of New Orleans" and a set basically updating the old USFL Breakers logo.... :rolleyes:

So we should have teams go the European route? Is that what I'm reading? Hard to decipher.

I took the spelling as being a play on the three-point arc.

Not necessarily. Just be open to other ideas. If good, incorporate. If not, disregard. The whole Eurotrash vs. American comment seemed off putting and unnecessary. Just because Real Madrid does it, doesn't mean it's bad. They are a top notch organization.

Such as a general lack of diving to fake injury amirite?

An organization that is killing the rest of La Liga. Literally. Let's not imitate that.

Also says concept logo at the bottom.

I think it's a cool logo, but not a very good name. It just seems to minor-league to me. Really can't think of anything cool off the top of my head, but think that the colors should be black/gold. Since the Saints are the only other big-four team in the city, and owned by the same group. Preferably I'd like it to be a similar shade of vegas gold, but athletic could work too. It is after all a color combination unused in the NBA.

Whatever the New Orleans' NBA franchise does, I hope they change the colors to purple, gold and green. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't most fans who live in New Orleans love their team to have Mardi Gras themed colors?

The majority of fans on the Hornets boards I visit want a black & gold colour scheme (which would look great with the Hornets name, but I guess that ship has sailed)...

PLEASE no black and gold color-scheme. I love the Saints and Hornets as much as anyone, but I think both franchises need unique identities.
