1. RCF Will Be In Flux For a few. I'm going as fast as I can correcting issues. We should be good to go by Monday. Sorry you have to deal with this bland board until then.

    God what a terrible name. But hey, if it means I can go to Hornets games instead of Bobcats games, I'm down. Bobcats sounds like a fucking WNBA team name.

    Apparently an old baseball team was called the Pelicans.

    - Didn't know owning rights to possible team names is a thing.
    - MJ should definitely get the Charlotte Hornets back.
    - New Orleans Krewe is meh and New Orleans Brass sounds pun-y.

    At least there is some history behind the Pelicans name. Names like the Wizards or Bobcats and even Thunder are pretty awful.

    Charlotte just changed their uniforms. They will have to wait a few years to change back to the Hornets.....as they should so people don't get confused.

    I saw the name of this thread and thought it was a joke. So Anthony Davis will be available once he's a free agent.
