Cleveland Indians dropping their name. I'd like to see them force it on the Chiefs just for the sheer spectacle of it. Personally, I don't give a sh!t about the names, but I do enjoy watching people lose their sh!t over it. :lol:
An old classmate made the best statement.....yeah, they should change their name to the Ohio Indians.....who would really want to be known as the Cleveland Indians?

I'm with you. Indians could not be deemed insulting at all. That is what they are. Are we going to have to change all maps now and take off India?

First off, the moniker "Indians" was given to native americans by the early European explorers who mistakenly thought they had discovered eastern Indonesia. And the America's called after a man who didn't even discover the place.

How would you like to go through life saying you are from Vespucci. It doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

If we're going to go that route, I'd prefer a Viking name, they were here before the rest of Europe. Or just call Native Americans by their ancestors who were from Siberia. We could all be Siberians and not Americans.

Vikings is still better though.

I guess maybe "Redskins" was a little dicey not that it bothered me but all of this other stuff like Indians, Braves, Chiefs, etc. I don't really get the problem ?

Well, first off, it's offensive to certain segments of the population. And it's understandable given history. Secondly, where is the line drawn between reality, perception, and history? Good luck with that sh!t.

The word Indians is offensive to people that call the Indian reservation home? Warriors/Chiefs names should Indians great amounts of pride.

Cancel Culture? They're going to erase a portion of societies history. That's doing Indians a disservice.

What is worth betting on is whether the Toros will come out for the 2nd half. Sewer Rats 42, Texans 12.
