Zod

Jordan says Charlotte Hornets "sounds good"

155 posts in this topic

Where is the thread that was started about somebody saying that the name change was certain not to happen? I want to go back and read through that.

It was the thread started by Zod saying that his inside sources basically confirmed that it was not going to happen.

I chalk that statement up there with Zod's other famous one.....that Terell McClain would be an all-Pro DT.

The same could be said for the Panthers, they are several winning seasons below .500. Theyve had players whove been murdered, and have murdered. The steroid scandal, half empty stadiums, lifeless tailgates. The owner wont even guarantee the team stays in NC unless you give him more money. LMAO. The mere fact the state dont want to raise taxes for its pro football team shows everyone just how much the Panthers mean to the state as a whole. When JR passes and the new owner relocates the Panthers, Bobcats are all you're gonna have left Zod. LOL

As for bringing together the community, bologna. Itll hype some casual NBA fans up for half a season, but itll do nothing to enhance the franchise, hence NO shedding itself of the moniker and colors.

All this is moot because we will remain the Bobcats in 2014 and celebrate 10 years in the Queen City as well as continue to highlight local blacks and minorities contributions to our community. George Shinn wouldve never sold his team to MJ. Thank you Bob.

This was the ONLY reason that I gave two shits about the name change......just to watch KT implode.

Of course winning cures all. But if you could change a name to what the fans want AND win, why wouldn't you? Strictly business speaking, Hornets gear will sell more than Bobcats, especially with nostalgia factored in. Changing the name has been a direct request from the fans, so moving forward with that "should" draw the community in more, and maybe it'll feel more like their team. Will this work completely? Who knows. But they have to do SOMETHING. The current path of the Bobcats just isn't working out. I think Cho will have us competing at least for playoffs spots soon, but how long will fans wait? Hornets will add a bit of excitement while we work on getting the team up to par. I have heard from a lot of people that they just don't feel like he Bobcats are active in the community. I know this isn't completely true, but that is what they THINK. Who can deny a name change isn't a direct connection with the community? Also, like usual, KT is the only one bringing race into a discussion.

Its more than the name. Its the team identity.

Downplay or belittle it as much as you like, but team identity does play a role in winning and losing mentally for the players.

The Bobcats have been a total and complete failure, top to bottom. You don't think the players realize that?

Wiping the slate clean and replacing with an identity this community took pride in may indeed contribute to a turn around.

Ditto.

The bobcats buisness model should be taught to prospective buisness students on what not to do

There's literally nothing standing in the war of a REBRAND except MJ, and it certainly appears which side of the fence he is on.

GO HORNETS!

I wonder how many bobcats games he's been to this year?

He's a moron if he paid face for any of his seats.

Derp.

I was told by someone fairly high up in the Bobcats he did not feel the name change would happen. I just pass along the info.

But keep nipping at my heels, it tickles.

That's all well and good, but if you went back and deleted the thread because it contained an inaccurate prediction, that's just egotistical. There were lots of posts in that thread that would have been useful to read back over again. Whether it's true or not, when you make a claim it's never a good idea to go back and erase history to avoid being proven wrong. I was curious to remember even what I said regarding the issue, because I don't remember.

Anyways, water under the bridge. But if you are afraid to be wrong, or don't have confidence in the source, it's probably better to not share it definitively. It unsettles the natives less.
