Major Bobcats Announcement Coming Soon?

274 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

At work tonight at the arena a person in the arena told me that there was a major Bobcats announcement coming soon. They said it had to do with the entire organization. Possibly big announcement coming soon. Maybe I received false information or misenterpretted something. Try not to blow this out of proportion. I am not announcing anything. If there is something to be said, I will leave that up to the organization to release the news. It's probably nothing major or exciting anyways.

All she said was soon. She wasn't allowed to really say anything about it, because of people like me will get the news out before it is supposed to be.

Sounds like a name change is coming. Would be awesome to get the Hornets name back and changing colors.

I'll bet if they change it, it will be to the Cougars. I'm kind of nervous about this though, so I hope they hurry up and announce whatever it is.

yeah, when I saw this last night, I wondered if they were going purple and teal. the hornets introduced that stupid yellow when they moved so the color schemes would technically be different.

Hey guys! Very interesting development here. Long time reader/first time poster...I just had to chime in.

I'm the guy that made the petition ( http://www.change.org/petitions/we-beelieve-charlottetake-back-your-hornets-rename-charlottes-nba-franchise-the-hornets ) and Facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/We-Beelieve-Charlottetake-back-your-Hornets/110429122320741?sk=wall ) in support of reclaiming our Hornets' name/colors. If you're interested in this whole thing, and you haven't already, do yourself a favor and check us out! Exciting stuff, I gotta tell ya ;)

[font="Helvetica"]My (sunny, chronically optimistic) perspective: Mike and the gang recognize the IMMEDIATE impact a rebrand could have on this franchise/city. Even though they can't say so publicly (because of the further damage it would do to the already tepid B**Cats brand), they would JUMP at the opportunity to reclaim the Hornets' brand. The last 2 years of NOLA league ownership have provided that opportunity. [/font]

[font="Helvetica"]The lease agreement proposed by the Louisiana State legislature is contingent on the New Orleans franchise announcing new ownership by June 1st. NOLA fans have been clamoring for a NOLA-centric, Shinn-free, rebrand ever since the Hornets came to town. Speculation, nay, ASSUMPTION of a rebrand has been rampant among their fan base for years. The lease extension was announced Friday. We hear BigFurryKittyMan's tidbit on a Monday... [/font]

[font="Helvetica"]I've never been accused of being too terribly rational and sound-minded, but considering the fact that we're talking about 2 teams that share NOTHING other than this issue, that seems like it would be one heck of a coincidence to me.[/font]

[font="Helvetica"]Listen...the last thing we want to do is stir negativity. I'm a huge B**Cats fan...go to/watch every game since the first season. But I'm a CHARLOTTE fan first and foremost. My main concern is that if something isn't done quickly, there won't be team to cheer for in 5-10 years. [/font]

[font="Helvetica"]So yeah...y'all should check the page if you haven't already. We're planning to 'Swarm Time Warner' for the March 30th game against the Nuggets. We're gonna be there early, scream like maniacs for our B**Cats, all while sporting our vintage teal and purple. Free pregame keg at Fitzgerald's, and a postgame barcrawl organized by Carolina Nightlife afterwards. It's gonna be a blast, and we'd love to have anybody who's interested! All the details are on the Facebook page.[/font]

Whew. Sorry for the novel. Not trying to stir the pot, I just feel like the time for a change is now. The new blood we have...a top-notch draft pick...then that BEE-UTIFUL teal and purple bug...it's almost too much to take :D

Hornets name would bring back more excitement than the Cougars but I would be happy with either one.

So instead of being a shitty team named the Bobcats....we will be a shitty team named the Hornets.

How about actually bringing in some talent and having a competetive team.

All of this "buzz" about a name change is just a poor attempt by the Bobcats to DO ANYTHING to increase interest in one of the worst teams in the history of the NBA.

Basically. Name change is and always has been a overblown LOCAL issue. Nationally and globally Hornets mean jack and we wont get respect til we start winning. 6 years ago it was "screw the NBA, screw the Hornets, screw the Cats..we never wanted the arena and evil militant carpetbagger Bob built it anyway!" Now in 2012 its "thanks for the arena and all the growth and money that comes with it. Thanks for all your time and hard work the last 8 years, thanks for the hot sexy cheerleaders, but, but I want the Hornets back! Hornets deserve this not those Cats! Purple and teal will make it 1993 again!"

Let's just hope it turns out better than when the Panthers tease a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT!

Should be very interesting to watch this unfold.
