Wow, out of almost 10,000 votes that's pretty telling. I don't care how you spin it.

49.9% Hate it

42.2% It's OK

7.9% Love it

I wear their hate as a badge of honor. What do they know anyway. This our team and I'm not going to let anyone suck the life out of that, we are "Thunder".

Taking a poll from ESPN seriously means one needs some mental health.

Most voters are just mad that a long-time franchise in a big city moved to a small town which had a better profit potential. They're afraid they could be next and they're predictably lashing out.

Just think what the poll results would have been if we had named our team "The Wind". :(

Web-based polls aren't worth the science they're based on....
