I had a similar experience over the holidays. I went to my soon to be in-laws home which is in bumfuq east TX. Anyhow, it was sort of opposite because some people in the small town would intentionally try to get disability benefits so they wouldnt have to do poo for the rest of their lives. However, if you even mention Obama, they get pissed and start yelling stuff like "he's a communist muslim democrat...take our guns etc". They vote republican even though it makes more sense for them to vote democrat.
i do agree with the point that its kinda sad to see a bunch of 20+ year olds who cant handle growing up and get all nostalgic over a basketball team name and want to take it away from the kids who do love the Bobcats now. get over it. if you dont support Charlotte basketball now because of a NAME, who cares what you think anyway?
Atleast this is a reasonable argument. I got over it years ago. But, I still think that bringing the name back would be the best thing for the franchise. Well maybe winning some games would help too.
For me personally, I dont support the Bobcats because they never interested me. I moved from Charlotte about 8 years ago. I still love the Panthers and I would still love the Hornets because the memories of going to Panther and Hornets games are what ties me to my hometown. Just my $.02
The people who want the Hornets arent Bobcats fans, some arent even NBA fans. These folks and the Hornets have done nothing for Charlotte this millenium. NOTHING! But revise history, canonize and deify a rapist owner and his wack ass franchise that moved away. And in a spoiled brat kind of way try marginalize the Bobs contributions to our community. Purple and teal is about,as fruity and feminine a color scheme you gone get, no ones scared of gay purple bees. Dudes see a couple snapbacks at Foot Locker and think the Hornets brand is strong. LMAO. I feel sorry for the people who've pitched in to support Charlottes team the Bobcats only to be told they mean nothing and should be erased from memory to please a few entitled grandiose non-fans. MrTD even said he dont supprt the cats so why should his opinion matter? People in Charlotte who dickride a franchise in New Orleans really and truly dont love Charlotte.
The Charlotte Hornets gave me more pride for my home town than anything else. To see them leave was devastating. The Bobcats can never replace the feeling of pride and nostalgia. After they left Charlotte I lost interest in the NBA. I love basketball but there is no other team I enjoy pulling for (including the Bobcats). Support to bring the name back to Charlotte does not mean I want to "canonize and deify a rapist owner". I mean seriously KT? Thats the stupidest thing Ive seen written on this board. Dumber than TRD's posts.
"Purple and teal is about,as fruity and feminine a color scheme you gone get, no ones scared of gay purple bees". You were obviously never a Hornets fan.
"People in Charlotte who dickride a franchise in New Orleans really and truly dont love Charlotte." Dickride a franchise??
No better feeling then sitting at the "Hive" with my father watching the computer animated hornets fly from Cape Hatteras across NC and land in the coliseum. If the Hornets were back in Charlotte they would have my support.
