#1737580 Bobcats Rebrand Update Thread (Real Charlotte Fans-Censorship Free Edition)

Translation: "we should be able to trash Bobcats fans and the Bobcats with no recourse"
"If you dont think a sorry Hornets franchise is God's gift to earth you're a hater!"


This could not be further from the truth. I respect (and appreciate) the current fans of the Bobcats. I don't trash things that I don't truly believe need to be reevaluated. I truly believe the Bobcats are a product of mismanagement and overall laziness. Bob Johnson brought an NBA team back to Charlotte, yes. But he did so in a way where he seemed to think the pre-established NBA fandom in Charlotte would just do all the work for him. He refused to listen to people's opinions for names (I'm not even talking about the Hornets name), and he overall did not make many (if any) decisions that benefited Charlotte or our Franchise.

For the second part of your statement, you again could not be further from the truth. Yes we want the Hornets name, because it has an already established brand recognition.... But don't believe for 1 second that I, and probably most of these people, wouldn't settle for a re branding to anything really.

What we're dealing with now is a Brand that's reputation is so tarnished with negative feelings and stuck in the gutter, that it really seems logical to start anew. I love Charlotte. I Love the Carolinas. But this Bobcats brand was a failure.

This is all my opinion. If you disagree with everything I've said, or just part of it, please feel free to offer your opinion and your stance on the current state of OUR franchise.

But please don't just turn to blind insults and conversation killing assumptions of another person's thoughts. THat just makes you, and more importantly our fanbase and community look bad.

I haven't been to this thread in a few days and...Wow.

Why not just let people who are interested in this--or for that matter people who understand proper discourse--use this thread to talk about something they are interested in?

You all (PSC and KT) keep bringing up that a bunch of "20 something entitled brats" are the only people who care about the Hornets name, yet to a casual onlooker, who does not know who you all personally, you two just come off as a couple of adolescents who like watching things that they don't agree with burn.

You two represent a huge part of what's wrong with the world today--Ignorance.

If you don't agree with something, then have enough self pride to articulate why you disagree. You two result to baseless insults and, in the end, just make yourselves (and the group you are supposedly representing) look immature and people devoid of any eloquence.

If you don't have something nice to say, or anything to add to the conversation, please do yourselves and us a favor and keep away.

King Taharqa,

I could not disagree with you more, man. But, I also could not be more intrigued by wanting to know who you are and what made you get to these views you currently believe about the Bobcats...

I was born in Charlotte in '87 and have lived here my whole life except for college, and I can honestly say that of all the Charlotteans I have ever come across, I have never heard anyone who even remotely believes that the current Bobcats are a viable product. You come off as a guy who just follows with blind loyalty, someone who believes things are out of his control, and therefor it's easier to be a sheep than to fight. And if someone has a different view than you?...Well you call them a hater and someone who is not loyal to their city...

Dude! America was formed on freedom of speech and the ability for everyone to have an opinion. Options and opinions in life are meant to be weighed with pros and cons, and are meant to be done so in a communal atmosphere where people are open to ideas other than their own if it means achieving a greater good for something they love.

Hypothetically, if the Hornets name and colors came back and could restore some cultural pride and NBA history to our city in, say, 10 years...would you take that? Or are you just completely sold on the Bobcats and refuse to ever "consider" what COULD be better for your city, better for the franchise, better for the NBA etc...
