Swedd- we've been through it over and over. Pretty soon no one will be mad because it will soon be settled and for better or worse we will be behind this situation.
The BBTB movement was to bring together a group of like minded people that shared a common purpose.
To me it has served it's purpose- the Bobcats have obviously taken notice as witnessed by the teams 180 from just 1 year ago on the name change subject....just 1 year ago this month Jordan said in his Chairmans corner letter that there wasn't a groundswell of support for the Hornets name, now he has publically said he has definite interest and the team has sent a survey asking specifically about the Hornets name.
I joined the movement because it was something I was passionate about and believed that the majority of Charlotte is/was too. My only real expectation was to get the Bobcats attention and if it was possible to bring the name home.
I'm thrilled that the Bobcats have acknowledged it as a legit business decision, if in the end my hopes don't come to fruition, I will accept that I fought a good fight and tried everything I could to make it happen. I will continue to support my hometown team and hope like hell that Charlotte gets behind the team. I won't continue to beat the dead horse...
For me this is a no limit hold'em poker event and I'm all in. If I lose, I will accept that there wasn't the support or at least we couldn't prove to MJ that their was enough support to justify a name change.
When the team makes the decision I will accept it and move on in supporting their decision. This is a devisive issue and I look forward to the the resolution.
I'm way to old and dull to be a "hipster" I don't even really know what the F a hipster is... I'm just a fan of the NBA and my hometown.
