I still don't quite understand why someone would support the Hornets, but refuse to support the Bobcats. It's still our local team. I mean, I definitely do want the Hornets back, and would probably buy more Hornets merchandise (only have a few Bobcat things), but that's only because I like the color scheme a lot more. I'll always support my local teams.
I think it's because when they left, we all lost interest. And this new team was just a cheap really bad knock off of what we used to have. Bad name, bad colors, bad team. It never filled the hole left inside when the Hornets left.
