Yes lets change the name to something gay like Flight.

I like the Charlotte Queens better.

I'm sure that's what Magic fans were thinking in 1988.

Look at these photos, just imagine the possibilities!

I love how people act like sooooo much has changed over 2 months when all Jordan has done is written two letters to the public.

It's more about the buzz that's being created.

Not actually changes to the franchise.

He can do that though by changing the name.

Jordan wants this to be his team...not BOB Johnson's.

...and still very much in Michael's ear. Seeing our joke of a newspaper and the haters try to stick it to Bob Johnson while he is still in ownership and has alot of influence over our current owner and front office just might just be FAIL of the decade. :lol:

I think, for this franchise, the fail of the decade was naming the team the BOBcats ...after his ego, which took precedence over what the fans wanted. Doomed from the start.

MJ can change everything. It is truly in his hands.

Why don't you quit being selfish and think about the core fanbase that has supported this team since day 1 and has bought a ton of merchandise?

So willing to spend other people's money and turn their fan apparel into a dishrag.

I think if they change the name at this point, its gonna leave the same bad taste in my mouth that Shinn did with his mishandling of the Hornets.

They change the name, and I will probably no longer continue to support them.

Is that a threat?

Who could I possibly be threatening with that?

No. Its a statement. I would probably drop them like I did the Hornets the last 3 years they were here.

A name like Flight would be even more embarrassing than the Hornets.

Its become painfully obvious that the name change crowd really doesn't give a damn about the team or the fans.

As are The Supersonics...

But seriously, am I the only one who thinks New Orleans should change there name so we can go back to being the Charlotte Hornets?

not going to happen, unless they can get Jazz from Utah. Even then, it starts something the NBA Marketing people don't won't.

Think the Lakers would give up their name because Minnesota should have it and it fits them? the L.A. Lakers is a brand name that carries the NBA internationally, no way they lose it.

The Charlotte Air, I could live with it. better image than seeing Bob Johnsons face everytime Bobcats is mentioned.

lol @ the irrational hatred for Bob Johnson, who is still a minority owner of the team, and probably has first rights to buy the team if Jordan decides to sell.

How many letters did Jerry Richardson have to send out?

Hell, he won't even talk to the press.

Jerry Richardson hasn't called out people and bad mouthed the city. I don't think anyone expects him to be openly public. He does enough behind closed doors and has a very respectable and valued organization. The Bobcats are now on the rise and a change of ownership helped the cuase. The letters didn't mean the organization changed alot, but it showed he understands where the fans are coming from. Changing the name would be unfortunate now, (flight is kinda..idk WNBAish). But, ill support them no matter what, name change or not.

It was a marketing move. And apparently a pretty good one at that. He didn't even have to give anyone a prize or pay a dime.

Jerry Richardson got tremendous support from corporate Charlotte, to the point that it hurts the fanbase with BOA owning half the seats in the stadium and either sitting on the tickets or handing them out to employees that are transplants and other teams fans. This cushion given by local corporations also artificially inflates the price of tickets and drives the scalping market in Charlotte.

Bob Johnson...well he didn't do a little dance for everyone, so he's an uppity asshole douchebag.

Hornets and Bobcats are both gay. Flight sounds like a soccer team.

The Charlotte Knights. Rename Bobcat Arena Jamelot. Or just call the court Jamelot Court. Keep the current colors. Put Sir (first name) on every player's jersey, instead of the usual last name. Knight merchandise would sell like crazy nationwide.

If they change the name, it needs to be changed to something like the Charlotte Mooseknuckles.
