    Matt Shwery - def. prefer this one to most – it doesn't require a local knowledge to glean meaning, but it still works on a local level.

    • Curtis Bush
      Curtis Bush 15 Apr 02:03 - Like it, connotes 'Brass Balls', much tougher sounding than the rest. Agree that Krewe sounds like a WNBA or MLS name...in fact it is an MLS name
    • David LeBoeuf
      David LeBoeuf 14 Apr 16:51 - It's ok for a fallback name. MUCH better than the KREWE. yuck.

    readinyalips - It would be revolutionary to get something that is ours back. It would let them squares in Utah and the whole world in fact know that we down here in the "DIRTY SOUTH" are tired of being robbed and exploited. Imagine 'the new york gumbo', 'boston crawfish', 'wyoming hurricanes', pittsburgh mardi gras'. JUST DONT FIT RIGHT? LETS GET WHATS OUR, PROSPERITY FOR ALL RACES, A CLEAN GULF OF MEXICO, FORTIFIED WETLANDS, AND OUR MUTHA TWERKIN JAZZ BACK.

    timbigeasy - Krewe is ok. Jazz, and Voodoo are pointless, because they are already taken.

      noladwight 02 May 16:27 - only if its the Krewe of New Orleans. EVERY american proffessional sports team follows the generic CITY/STATE NICKNAME formula (minus a few MLS teams) - this could be a great way to be unique..just like our city
    • Matt Wisdom  - TS CEO
      Matt Wisdom - TS CEO 17 Apr 01:47 - There's a lot of uses that make sense: "We're here with the New Orleans Krewe and blah..."
    • readinyalips
      readinyalips 16 Apr 23:59 - "THE KREWE" I love this name because its gives us citizens not just in New Orleans but the whole gulf coast a sense of collective fight. "WE ALL IN THE SAME KREWE NO MATTER WHAT THE PARADE IS U HEARDS ME

    • darcy_bombers_metroid
      darcy_bombers_metroid 16 Apr 11:41 - This is quite possibly the worst nickname for a sports team i've ever heard. I'm a new orleans supporter but seriously how lame does it sound to say "i'm going to watch the bulls v krewe" for example
    • David LeBoeuf
      David LeBoeuf 14 Apr 16:53 - I hate this name. It sounds like a tacky WNBA or Arena League name. It's way too local, and it would be impossible to sell merchendise other than locally. I literally hate this name and hope it goes away ASAP.
    • Trel Williams

      darcy_bombers_metroid 16 Apr 11:47 - Hornets is a great team nickname. The team colours and logo mix really well and look awesome. Why change something that isn't broken? i don't hear lakers fans complaining that their nickname isn't 'local' enough for them.To those wanting a change, just consider the history behind the 'hornets' branding and the past players and coaches whose efforts will be forgotten in the public eye if the name is to be phased out.
    • David LeBoeuf
      David LeBoeuf 14 Apr 16:54 - I'm good with the hornets, but I don't think Benson is. if you keep them, then you should at least change that blue to green. would make it much, much better
