Major Bobcats Announcement Coming Soon?

272 posts in this topic

Attendance dropped drastically for the Hornets the last few years, but minus what Shin did himself personally. The Hornets would've had to have gotten a new arena to stay in Charlotte, unless it was ok for them to continue to loose money.

Also 610 the Fan mentioned a Bobcat's announcement, Boris Diaw has been bought out. LoL

Meh... Apples and oranges. Half of the haters in Charlotte were too hillbilly to look past the color of Cam's skin like you preached for months and the other half were too dumb to do more than be spoon fed the garbage that the media was spewing.

Bob Johnson on the other hand did things like put the team name to a public vote, then spit on the response and did what he liked. All while not giving a poo about the city or creating a bridge between the organization and the city. That's evident in him scrapping the whole PR group for the cats.

More racist ignorance from you....why are we not surprised.

Still trying to spew that whole "People did not want Cam because he is black" thing. It was crap then...and it is crap now.

People questioned Cam because of the offense he ran at Auburn and the fact that he did NOT display the skills at Auburn necessary to be an NFL QB....but is has been shown that he did not do those things at Auburn BECAUSE of the offense they ran...not becuase of a lack of skill.

He has proven to be an incredible talent....and the city has fully embraced him.

If everyone was against him because of color....they would still be against him.

I think most anyone who regularly follows the Bobcats would wholeheartedly disagree with you about Bob Johnson doing more than MJ. Ok, so he bought the expansion team that helped get the uptown arena built. Outside of that he did nothing but alienate the city. When did you ever hear announcements about donating money to middle school sports programs to keep them going? Or the Cats Care initiative where the owner MJ was helping others hand out food to the needy? While MJ's track record of building a winning team is certainly not very good at the moment, his track record off the court in the community is far better. Jordan did more in 6 months than Bob Johnson did in 6 years.

Exactly.

All Johnson did was pay for the team. Then....he did absolutely nothing. He was a terrible owner.

Shinn was a piece of human garbage. He was a crook and had low morals. That is why Charlotte turned their back on him. It was to force him to sell the team. He was just too damn arrogant to do it.

The citizens of Charlotte said that we would rather not have an NBA team....than have an NBA team run by the likes of George Shinn.

The city has not embraced the Bobcats for one reason.......THEY SUCK.....and they have always sucked.

There were people that did not want Cam because he's black. Hell look at the Marriage Proposition if you need any proof that there's still hate and bigotry right in your own backyard.

But unfortunately for you Bob was born, and he did put up the money to pay the expansion fee for us to get our Bobcats franchise. He did come up with the Bobcats logo and scheme, organization, etc, thus he is the FOUNDER of our NBA team. He did oversee the team its first 5 years of existence. He did bring Jordan into the fold and ultimately sold him the team. You guys can allow your bitterness to hold you and keep romanticizing the Hornets, the rest of us are living in 2012 supporting our Cats.

And then he bailed on the bobcats because he hated them.

No. It's not happening.

Good, although the Bobcat have been a terrible fail for most of their existence, i'm still holding out hope that we can somewhat become at least a midtier team that occasionally sees some success. Being this bad now is just ....insufferable.

In Biyombo I trust :cam:

anyone speculating that we could be contracted?

No way the NBA allows a team to be contracted (at least while David Stern is running things). Hell, New Orleans hasnt had an owner for like 6 months or something and yet the NBA wont even allow it to be sold cheaply because it would hurt the league's image. Contracting a team makes the NBA look weak as a whole even if you could argue that it could help
