Bobcats Rebrand Update Thread (Real Charlotte Fans-Censorship Free Edition)

504 posts in this topic

Benson is not gonna sell the Hornets name, history, etc to the Bobcats. All the Hornets rights will remain with the NO franchise. As they should.

Stern has already said "NO" to New Orleans getting "their Jazz name back", and he will do the same if MJ asked the same of the Bobcats. Which MJ wont. The league would move the Bobcats to another market before they'd rebrand them. The lack of fan support and interest is a reason why Stern and the NBA wont do us any favors. They helped us get another team back here quickly and we havent held up our end of the bargain. There not gonna piss off sponsors and waste millions for lackluster fan support.

If you do get your wish and Benson does change from the Hornets (which IMO he wont now that his fans are bitching, the new choices suck, and he cant get Jazz) all it means is that the Hornets will no longer exist in the NBA. Imagine Stern having to convince sponsors in NO that the Hornets brand sucks and they should embrace a new one. Then have to turn around tell sponsors in NC how great the Hornets brand is and the Bobs should be dropped. Wont happen.

Like I said, this is a fad, Bobcats will be in Charlotte for years to come, Hornets will be in NO for years to come.

I believe the mod of this board would be better suited to run a Malcolm X board or a Black Panther (see what I did there?) board than this. Next week we'll be discussing how Willy T. Ribbs is the greatest racing driver of all time. Or maybe Lewis Hamilton, or Wendell Scott, or Bill Lester...

Any delusional racist fan tying themselves to a black supremacist former owner of the worst pro team in the nation has more issues than I have time to point out. Not that they'd be solved that way, anyway. I was glad to see that apparently KT and PSC made up 3% of the nickmane vote though, since that's how much support the ***cats got.

King T - I think your wrong on many points.

#1. Tom Benson will change the name, he said as much in his introductory press conference, the same Press conference where Stern says the Jazz will stay in Utah and "There are many things indigenous to the area, I'm sure there will be some wonderful nickname .

#2. The league would move the team before they allowed them to rebrand..... U can't be serious..... Did u not think about what just happened in New Orleans??? in case you missed it. The NBA bought the team themselves 2 years ago to avoid the team being sold and relocated to another city. If that wasn't enough, the team was recently sold to a local businesman who in the introductory press conference while sitting beside David Stern announced he was going to rebrand.... Rebranding is obviously favored over relocation.

#3. Tom Benson will not sale the name? Why not, he doesn't need it or want it. If you had something and didn't want it or need it and it was worth money, what would u do with it? If your smart, you would sell it to the guy that values it before he no longer values it and it becomes worthless.

#4. Stern wouldn't need to convince anyone to embrace the Hornets name... They already want it... plus all the "True" Bobcats fans will support them, no matter what the name is. The sponsors don't care about the name, they care about advertising their product. Whichever name generates the most ROI on their advertising $'s will be the name they favor and according to the polls, websites, and radio shows the brand Hornets wins by a landslide.

Wake me when the Hornets leave NO. You guys are dreaming. This has been a tough season on us all so I understand the need to escape. Bobcats aren't going anywhere though guys. This is Bobcat Country. Just ride downtown. You guys are fans of a team that no longer exists. I wouldnt trade places with you.

Bobcats are a horrible sports franchise no matter what you call them.

All the opinions, tirades, personal attacks, racial garbage and general ignorance won't make the team win games or be relevant to the sports world. If the mismanagement of the team by ownership continues not only will they not be called the bobcats OR the hornets, the team won't exist in this city anymore.

Feel free to pretend their a contender and pay to watch them throw poo at the wall hoping anything will stick.

Bobcats are what Charlotte Hornet fans wish they were. They want to be us. This thread proves it. You guys follow us. 2 years ago all of you has Bobcat avatars and sigs. Now you're hopping on this fad. Truth is, you failed your Hornets ancestors. We run Charlotte now and there's nothing you can do about it. Go Bobcats!

Without any question whatsoever, the Panthers run Charlotte. The Bobcats run Charlotte as much as the homeless do. They're also equally as economically sound.

Bet it wouldn't take the Panthers 66+ games to win 8.

Just watched a nice segment on joe Maddon during real sports on hbo. Rays baseball is a nice example of how rebranding could energize/excite a dead franchise.
