      I am a life time Hornets fan. After we won the lottery pick i observed the Fleur de Bee styling with a unibrow. It was awsome. Hugo is a great mascot. Great for the fans and the young Hornets. GEAUX HORNETS!!!!!

      its such a great metaphor.. for comparison 'The Lakers' there aint even a lake near.

      and who wouldn' t be afraid coming to "The Hive" (at least once its a fierce team).

      The logo and all its the best.

      personally? HORNETS-fan since '94 Rice, Johnson, Zo and Bogues - for the win!

      Firstly, I have been a fan of the franchise since the Charlotte days. Second, I believe that changing the name and forcing a 'New Orleans-style' brand upon the franchise is an inappropriate means of instilling city pride in the team. New Orleans has adopted the team and the spirit of the city is within the fans and the team, not the logo.
