The HORNETS buisness model should be taught to prospective buisness students on what not to do
Putting a used car salesman in charge of your pro sports teams because they're from the home state is a recipe for failure. In the end, they always stick it to the ones who are most loyal to them. You need REAL business minds that understand business beyond the home market. Hornets fans only want the team to be "successful" in Charlotte, much like the Panthers who dont get a lot of respect statewide. The Steelers have more fans and sell more merchandise in Carolina than the Panthers. The Hornets brand and moniker has failed in 2 markets (Charlotte, NO). I give the Bobcats credit for atttempting to create something new, rather than stick with old ideas that have already proven to be failures.
