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.
That is pretty weak dude...
Anyway, this is the same ole theme in a different thread....There are a handful of people who are still sniffing BJ's jock. They cant appreciate what MJ, the new owner, is trying to do without reminding us of how "lucky" we were to have had BJ. I dont think that any of these people will ever change their narrow minds.
Point is, yes it would suck for anyone who bought Bobcats apparel, and I sympathize with that (but people have made worse fan apparel purchases, see below), but MJ has been trying to change the image of the bobcats, and have the entire CITY (or states, NC/SC) embrace an NBA franchise. This means if the majority of the public wants a name change, he should do it, period.
