White college kids offended by name

No one going after the Celtics

As a non-blue blue jay... I demand Toronto change their name!!

I understand Redskins and Indians and Eskimos, but using names like Blackhawks, Iroquois or Braves are a tribute to their history are they not?

Good. Despite popular belief these names aren't offensive in any way

TSN1040 Why would they. It’s not racist or demeaning. It celebrates native warriors.

TSN1040 Just change the logo and ban the chop

The stupid Tomahawk chop is a bit much but nothing wrong with the name.

Naw we ain't gonna do it! ChopOn

Braves and Warriors, I don't find offensive. Redskins is another story...

Not brave enough I suppose.

Why would they? what's the problem with the Braves name? I didn't get the memo.

What the hell is offensive about the braves,like I understand the Redskins and Indians but I just don’t understand what is bad about the braves

Awaiting the “homage” argument.

Cleveland ready to discuss changing team name - TSN.caIt appears the Cleveland Indians might be ready to make a change. “We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the team said in a statement sent to The Athletic on Friday evening. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community. Just not to the Spiders. This is a totally stupid request. It’s a compliment to have something or someone named after you. Someone should pole all indigenous people, let them all vote.
