    Bobcats are on National Geographic channel from time to time...

  • frankbad15 Aug 29, 2011

    We need to support our team!! They were on TV, about two years ago. Now nothing at all.

    it's doubtful the Bobcats will even be in Charlotte after this 'season'. Likely contraction target, along with either the former Bobcats (Hornets) or the Sacramento 'Queens'. Sacramento tried to split to Anahiem earlier due to Sactown will not give the Kings a new arena. Fan support has dried up. How many fans on average do the Bobcats draw in Charlotte? How about away? Not a big draw to say the least.

    Like most CEO's, Presidents and Business Managers of this country, they forgot how to run a sucessful company.
    Problem #1 for the Bobcats is that they need to change the name. Ego driven owner named the team after himself.
    Problem #2 Show the games on TV in the Raleigh area to build a fanbase. Once the fans start watching they will drive to Charlotte to watch a game. Why can't they figure this out???? Build the franchise the right way and the fans will come.

    Like most of our companies today in the USA, the ones running the show need to go back to college and learn good business practices. Also, quit hiring your friends and hire qualified people.

    The Bobcats are like the Dallas Cowboys in this regard: As long as they have an egotistical owner who doesn't get it, they'll never be a championship-caliber team...Jordan was a great player(despite his being allowed to consistently palm the ball, walk 6 steps before each lay-up/dunk, and blatantly push a defensive player away to sink a fade-away jumper), but I don't think he's a very good/effective owner...he should probably just go and count his money somewhere and let someone else own the team....I wish him well...

    haha they changed it in the last five days. must've caught on.

  • jayparks0228 Jul 24, 2011

    If you have the digital cable sports package, you'll catch their games. But, when the state's pro hockey franchise has more fans than the nba franchise, there isn't much hope for them.

    Why does the introduction to the Panthers forum still ask if we "have a game plan for Jon Fox"? Because it's WRAL

    The Bobcats? I know maybe two people who even know two of their players. The Hornets go off to a great start and a lot of people cared but things have really changed.

  • Garnerwolf1 Apr 14, 2011

    A. It's pro hoops (nobody cares) B. They're in Charlotte (nobody cares)

    Who really cares? A bunch of overpaid people. NBA basketball is the most boring professional sport around. It's all about me and me only. There is no I in team except in pro basketball.

    Go Bobcats, even though you can't be found on tv!

  • frankbad15 Apr 14, 2011

    Well last year they were on Fox sports south at least, but this year they were no where to be found on tv. We should support the Bobcats

    Charlotte has an NBA team?

  • johnlasater3 Feb 1, 2011

    Because we are mediocre and let good players leave, and draft busts....Add in Larry Brown, who had set us back another 2-3 years...That is pretty much the extent! Thank god for Paul Silas though!

    Who are the bobcats?

  • eah51 Feb 1, 2011

    They aren't on the radio or tv here, so they don't exist, right? I've been asking for coverage of them for years, to no avail. I remember when the Hornets were covered everywhere in NC, I traveled a lot back then, and the Hornets games were on the radio or tv, no matter what part of NC I was in. Now, you can't find any coverage of the Bobcats outside of the Charlotte area. Sad.

    There are plenty of Bobcats fans around here we need a Bobcats Forum.
