When you have to explain why your team name is appealing....it isn't.
And who the hell is going to buy their crappy Pelican gear????
That's going to be far less popular than that sad @ss Miami Marlins Miami Vice inspired garbage that is 30 years late

Being a Louisiana native I initially hated the name when it was being rumored months ago. It slightly grew one me. After seeing how polarizing the choice has become I've grown to love it. I like the idea of having one of the more unconventional names in pro sports, even though after a full season no one will care, again.

No... The new owner agreed to a 15 or 20 years contract in New Orlans if I'm not wrong

Convincing arguments. I'm sure the name will grow after a year or so.

You know what? It's kind of growing on me too. It's a little old school. I like team nicknames named after animals.

If they tried to name the team "Baltimore Orioles" today, everyone would hate that too.........
