Hawks’ 12 home games in New Orleans: ‘Worst times’

By Chris Vivlamore, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Editor’s note: At a time when sports are shut down, including the canceled Final Four in Atlanta and many other postponed events, we take a look (in no particular order) at some of the bizarre moments from Georgia sports history.

A test for a possible franchise move.An easy way to make a needed $1.2 million.

A publicity stunt.

The Hawks played 12 home games in New Orleans during the 1984-85 NBA season, and the reason for the experiment may be any or all of the above possibilities.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
