Hornets won't happen

Largest grain of salt in the world for this one. The one man that controls this decision will do what he wants, and he has never answered to anybody about his finances.

winning will up ticket sales, but the name change will create temporary excitement from fans, and it will up merchandise sales.

this tells me the team doesn't think that they will make money on the name change so they won't do it. too bad.

Doesn't surprise me and I'm fine with it.

A bunch of the research was gathered from current season ticket holders, not fringe fans that would only start going regularly once the team changed names. Really, what did any one expect? They asked current die hard Bobcat fans about the name change, not the group of people that want it to happen.

I am a family member of someone high up in the front office of the Bobcats and that is the exact opposite of what I have been told. I also work for the Bobcats. But it only comes down to what MJ wants to do. And if he wants to create excitement in the city and around this team for once, he may just do it.

Fixed.

DU...not trying to get you to reveal your sources/compromise your employment situation, but can you give us a general overview of what you've heard? All these grains of salt are taking a serious toll on my blood pressure ;)

I really can't. That's about the most I can say. They have been VERY VERY strict about not saying a WORD. I wish I could say more, but everyone will find everything out soon enough. Don't stress out about it.
