Major Bobcats Announcement Coming Soon?

274 posts in this topic

You are missing the point.

Not at all. What are you basing "attendance will double" on? And if thats the case why dont you guys raise some $$$? The Panthers and Bobcats both were able to raise money for their organizations. If you guys want the Hornets back, you need $$$ to be heard and respected. Or you can keep doing what you been doing which is begging Bob Johnson and Michael Jordan for handouts. You see how good its working so far right? You guys are so naive thinking the Bobs, the NO Hornets, and the NBA are just gonna do what you say because you live in this area. David Stern owns the Hornets NOW, and if you think he's gonna sabotagetwo of his franchises because a vocal minority of fans are ashamed they needed Bob Johnson's money to keep bball alive in Charlotte, you're mistaken.

Why are we still arguing about this?

No one cares what the name of the team is....all that fans care about is putting a winning product on the floor.

I agree with ya on the idea that winning is the most important thing, Hatter, but I have to disagree on the 'nobody cares' bit...this is the most viewed topic on the page right now, and the only thing close was started 3 years ago. Seems like a whole bunch of people care ;)

Anyone else think King Taharqa is nothing more than a contrarian jack***? I mean it's one thing to not support bring the name back but it's an entirely different thing to go out of your way to talk trash just for the sake of being annoying. Do everyone a favor and get a life that involves something other than spending all your time on a message board trying to get under peoples skin. Furthermore the NBA was coming back regardless of that egomaniac Bob Johnson, there were actually different ownership groups bidding on the rights to this franchise. Also to your argument that the Hornets name wouldn't help attendance numbers because it hasn't helped NO is the weakest argument I have ever heard. The reason it doesn't help NO is because it has nothing to do with the city, where as in Charlotte it's roots go back to the revolutionary war.

Screw your revolutionary war history. Only whine and cheesers care about that. Basketball fans of today arent caught up in BS that happened 250 years ago. As a native Charlottean im telling you, open an exhibit at mint museum if you wanna fawn over revolutionary battles. And leave the bball to REAL fans who are living in 2012 and not 1988. Nobody cares or is afraid of feminine honeybees.

MJ will be gone from Charlotte before the Bobs will.

I'd be happy with either leaving ASAP. Charlotte feels the same way.

"The most interesting decision of the new owner may be whether to rebrand the franchise. Will the "Hornets" nickname be relinquished and enabled to return to Charlotte, where owner Michael Jordan could rebrand his own underperforming franchise?"

Underperforming ins't quite the word I'd use to describe the pathetic bobcats.

I'm surprised you're even aware of the Mint Museum. Didn't think you'd left West Blvd your entire life.

...says the guy who tells people he's from Charlotte, when he's really from Huntersville! Don't be ashamed of where you're from little man. If you grew up in a rural area, that's nothing to hide.
