Sam Battistone explained why he was not changing the team's name when they
moved from New Orleans. He said the team would not always be bad. He wanted
people to remember where they were from when they were no longer a joke. That
is why he kept the name. Of all your suggestions, I think the Oh-My-Hecks is
the best. LOL
I strongly agree. Sale the jazz name back to New Orleans for a boat load of
cash and change our name to something that represents us! I say call us the
if it bugs the rock then i'm fine with keeping the jazz.
This has been brought up how many times??? What don't you understand about
the work "NO??"Besides where are the Lakes around LA?? The Colts
belong in Baltimore. Many others..The Suns are in the right place...
The name "Utah Jazz" pulls people together. Any other name either A)
tends to divide us, B) sounds stupid, or C) is being used by somebody else.
Let's face it, the only way we can duplicate the unity our NBA team
provides us is to come up with another name that has nothing to do with the
state. Rather than wasting our name coming up with another name, we should just
recruit more Jazz musicians to the State and rename the "Gateway Mall"
to the "French Quarter."
Jazz is the biggest joke of a name in all of sports. Seriously let's
finally get rid of it and maybe just maybe people will start taking our state
The Brooklyn Dodgers moved to L.A., and nobody complains any more about the lack
of trolleys to dodge in Los Angeles. Little Andy is right -- nobody even
remembers that the Lakers moved from Minneapolis to L.A. The lack of lakes
doesn't seem to bother anybody. Eventually, people will get over it, or
forget about it...
