I thought they already decided upon Pelicans?

Out of those names Swamp Dogs is probably the least awful choice.

Rougarou is pretty good. The others sound like minor league baseball teams.

Pelicans was the best of the bunch and they have a pretty solid logo.

Those are generic and/or stupid sounding.

New Orleans Krewes ftw
 
2012-12-20 11:50:15 AM
I really like Krewe.
 
2012-12-20 11:52:46 AM
I am not a fan of Krewes. The uniforms would be 90's level ridiculous.
 
2012-12-20 11:52:57 AM
Mosquitoes? The New Orleans Malaria would sound better.

Aren't Rougarou French werewolves? I remember them being featured in a Supernatural episode, back when Supernatural was good.

Dear NBA, please remember to trademark names that will also fit when the team moves to another city.
 
2012-12-20 12:23:33 PM
Palmer, I think the French werewolf is loup-garou.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

You're the guy with the Vancouver Grizzlies gear I saw the other day.

How about The Jazz?

How about the New Orleans Holy Shiatt It's Another Hurricane Why Do We Live Here.

What no "coon ass" option?

Raccoon assholes everywhere

FTFA: Perhaps what makes the most sense is for New Orleans to execute a name trade with the Jazz, the team in Utah, which is known as the beehive state.

Shut your whore mouth. Charlotte already has dibs on the Hornets name.

It's Rougarou in Cajun

That was the guy that was normal, but then started craving raw meat, and almost ate his wife. Had to be burned.

There aren't any Wizards in Washington either, which is why Bullets was a better name.

First thing: I think that was a rumor, though its obviously still on the table.
 
Second thing: no way, there are way to many ______ Dogs teams out there.  Especially in minor league baseball.  Its a trend that's been around for awhile, and is no longer unique.  I guess if you don't follow baseball, "swamp dogs" would seem unique... but as someone that does, I can't stand the idea any more.

Is "The Looters" on the list?
 
2012-12-20 02:59:54 PM
I think "Louisiana Pelicans" poetically is far superior to "New Orleans Pelicans." I like all the vowells and the double Ls and ANs.
 
2012-12-20 03:02:23 PM
Hurricanes
 
2012-12-20 03:17:34 PM
Rougarou is basically the cajun version of the french term loup-garou or were wolf in English.
 
2012-12-20 03:47:30 PM
The Levybreakers?  They could come out to Led Zepplin.

"New Orleans Pelicans" sounds really ABA. Short-shorts & afros style ABA.

If they enforce that as a dress code then I will happily accept the name change.

Honestly I felt it sounded like it belonged in the movie Semi-Pro. And yeah, instead of going with the lame modern-type logo (it's good for what it is, but it just seems like it's a thing everyone's doing, just like everyone in the NFL had to make the same exact logo in the '90s and early '00s, with a random animal facing left to right and slightly downward to pretend to make it more intimidating) they've created, they should rock something that looks 70s-ish and bright colors.

No, Tom Benson is pushing for Pelicans. Considering one of his other bright ideas involved moving the Saints to Mississippi, I don't think the board is taking any of his decisions seriously.
