STH Survey Regarding Name Change

6 posts in this topic

The Observer obtained a copy of the survey Harris emailed to various Bobcats season-ticket holders Wednesday. The electronic survey takes about 30 minutes to fill out, and asks all sorts of questions about the Bobcats, the Hornets and the general perception of what would sell more game tickets and team gear. One question, about halfway through Harris’ survey, is the crux of the issue: “If the Bobcats were to change their nickname to the ‘Hornets,’ would you attend more games than you currently do, attend fewer games, or attend about the same amount?” Charlotte Observer

I don't think it's gonna happen if they're only polling STH. I think at best, it will split down the middle as far as "would you buy more tickets if we changed to the Hornets," which will most likely mean no change. If they polled fans who aren't STH, that may be a different story.

How about "Would you be a STH if they were called the Hornets?".

They aren't just polling season ticket holders. They are polling season tickets holders first, then they will poll everybody else at a later date.

you know- i live in Northern VA and have never seen a Bobcats hat or jersey or anything up here. but you go to Hatworld or Lids- and Charlotte Hornet stuff flies off the shelves.

Probably because it is considered "vintage" but who cares. People loves the name- MAKE IT HAPPEN

This makes me feel very confident that they are working on getting the Hornets name back
