Total Votes: 9786

I'd love to know how many votes actually came from fans of the NBA. Also, does anyone remember in 2009 when "Panther fans" were polled and a supposed majority were in favor of the Panthers signing Michael Vick?

I remember that Vick poll X-Clown. LOL. I cant take anything from the Charlotte Observer seriously when it comes to the Bobcats. Their allegiance and bias towards George Shinn and the New Orleans Hornets franchise is common knowledge. To justify their Bobcat hate they appeal to the lowest common denominator and non-fans as a way to keep an ongoing grudge. Their message "every full blooded Charlottean should hate Bob Johnson and the Bobcats! They should be treated as outsiders!" Looks like MrTD and Diddy have been soaking it up. Some of their longer tenured writers at the Observer built their local reps covering and writing fluff pieces for the Hornets. What else are they gonna say? They're very much on that Good Ole Boy shh and suck at covering the current NBA.

Bob Johnson >>>> DA Tompkins

Watching KT defend Bob Johnson is like watching Baghdad Bob defiantly standing at the gates of the city while tanks rolled past him.

watching you guys portray Hugo the Hornet as your "paradise lost" is like listening to Michael Jackson's "Listen To My Childhood" on repeat!

What does that have to do with anything?

If you think an anonymous online poll is a way to make decisions for a sports franchise then I don't know how to help you

A much better way to determine it would be the filled seats at Bobcat ga-I can't even finish the sentence without laughing.

If you think naming team after yourself and expecting an entire region to embrace it is a way to make decisions for a sports franchise....

I've been reading more and more about the origins of the name as I had forgotten some of it, like the fact that the NBA preferred the name Spiders, and that the marketing firm that Johnson hired was pushing the Flight. The Cougars were in the running as well.

There was over 1200 suggestions

The finalist were of course

Dragons

Flight

Bobcats

There was no public poll to gauge interest.

Bobcats was chosen because Bob liked the name and the logo better than the other 2 choices.

The Hornets of course were originally going to be called "Spirit" , the public hated it, a poll was offered and the Hornets won in a landslide and the team name was changed.......Sound familiar?
