Bring Back the Buzz speaks with Cats and finds out about “Name Change survey” going out to the city!

Information is coming and it is coming fast. We have been on the phone with Charlotte Bobcats all morning trying to find the answer to “If we buy season tickets today would we be able to participate in the survey?”. The answer to that question is YES! 

The other thing I was told, is that there WILL be a SURVEY going out to the CITY in a few days asking the same question. I was then informed that season ticket holders’ opinion will be looked at “differently”. Which I perfectly understand because you do not want to anger the people who are already supporting you. 

I then had a wonderful conversation with the Bobcats’ employee. I told him who I was. I also thanked him and the Bobcats for putting out this survey and I let him know that we are Bobcats fans. He said that he knew about our event last Saturday and that if anyone wanted to speak with him about seasons tickets to call in. He also told me that a lot of the season ticket holders who were calling in were saying that they wanted the “Hornets” name back. 

He was really excited to hear that the Bring Back the Buzz guys were fans of the team and I told him that I would be at the game tonight! We then talked about Haywood not being the answer, Cousins trade rumors and Rudy Gay trade rumors. All and all it was awesome to have some positive interaction with the our franchise.Image

About Scotty & Evan

Rare is the sort of unconditional love and undying devotion that was once the hallmark of the relationship between the city of Charlotte and her Hornets. Night after night, year after year, "The Hive" was alive; impassioned Beelievers wreaked a unique aural havoc upon all who dared to enter that hallowed hall. From the 20-win seasons of Rambis and Tripuka, to the genuine Eastern Conference contenders of the late 1990's, this city; this jewel of the New South; provided both the NBA and the nation at large a perfectly-executed blue print of the power of civic pride. Then there were the lean years. Our once beloved owner...let's just say he became somewhat less beloved. This was followed by the acrimonious arena issue. And in a matter of a few short seasons, the one constant in this city of flux, our beloved Hornets, was gone. I defy any of you present for that final, crushing playoff loss to state that you didn't shed a tear as you filed into the parking lot. But hope, as they say, springs eternal. B** Johnson managed to bring the NBA back to the Queen City in 2004. As my mother taught me to refrain from speaking of someone unless I had something complimentary to say, this will be the last I will mention of Mr. Johnson. Let's cut to the chase. The B**Cats have been a PR disaster...the ownership has, in a round about way, admitted as much. Whether it was through their own doing (oh, I don't know...C-SET, anybody?!?) or factors outside of their control (the 'jilted-lover' scars of a fanbase done wrong), they've never taken hold in the city of Charlotte, much less on a national scale (stroll through the streets of any major city long enough, and you're bound to see a hip kid sporting throwback Charlotte Hornet gear. I don't think I've ever seen any B**Cats paraphernalia outside of the metro area...and not much inside the metro area). The Honorable Sir Airness himself vented his frustrations in a recent Charlotte Observer article: "Number one for 10 years!" Jordan said, his voice rising. "The community supported it and at that time, the Hornets supported the city. I want to duplicate that. I want us to be No. 1 in attendance and No. 1 in the community. "If we ask people to invest in us, we must invest in them." Let's face the facts, Mike. The swiftest, savviest, most crowd pleasing way to convince this community to "invest in (you)"? GIVE US BACK OUR HORNETS. The current New Orleans Hornets franchise has been embroiled in an unparalleled period of strife. Left high and dry by George Shinn (sound familiar?), the team was purchased by the NBA in 2010. Recently, League Commissioner David Stern has made%2
