New Harris Poll survey lists team name options

It appears that a team name change to the Hornets is inevitable.

While I have not really supported a name change, I understand that it might be necessary to the longevity of the franchise. I have not supported a return to the Hornets, either, but I am not unaware of the increase in merchandise it will bring to our franchise, so in that regard, if a name change is inevitable, I support the Hornets: I'm just not a fan of living in the past.

The name choices were: Hornets, Flight, Cougars, Dragons; all with the Charlotte moniker attached to them.

Personally, I think Carolina Flight is the best name possible, since Charlotte Flight doesn't roll off the tongue as well.

Questions basically asked how we felt the name fit the city, fit the team, was connected to other sports teams in the area, would we buy merchandise, does the name have a negative stigma, would we attend more games, things like that

I hate the name "Dragons", so I voted negatively in all regards, otherwise I was pretty honest, admitting I would buy more merchandise if they were re-branded as the Hornets.

It also asked what you think of first when you hear their names. My responses were:

Bobcats - ineptitude

Dragons - worse than Bobcats

Cougars - older hot women

Flight - His Airness

Hornets - Granmama
