Default Indians to stop using Chief Wahoo insignia in 2019

Per Ken Rosenthal, seems like it was pressured by Manfred

Good. I know I'm not in the majority, but I like the "C" better anyway.

Honestly, it's about time. They're not removing it from team history just not using it going forward. Right move.

This has been a long time coming so I’m glad a plan has finally been unveiled. I’m on board with moving on from Chief Wahoo. I think the majority of Clevelanders will meet this news with indifference while a loud segment of the fan base might make outsiders think otherwise.

Should be interesting to see the reactions!

Furthermore, it could be a rallying point for Wahoo apologists this year.....

Looks like I'm gonna have to get me that hat before they retire it. Did the same thing with the Expos and Devil Rays prior to the retirement of those hats

^^^^^^^^^^

Which BO member is that?

And kudos to Manfred for this move. It's been a long time coming. Hopefully this puts a match under Roger Goodell's butt to get rid of the Washington Redskins name.

Unfortunately, wardrobe like this is going to become even more common at the ballpark this year in protest. I predict that Opening Day will be the biggest S-show this year.

All my Indians gear has Chief Wahoo on it. The best part is every fan in Cleveland will be wearing Chief Wahoo stuff at games. It will be unavoidable when they're on T.V.

In 2021 all team Logos will be removed and replaced by binary numbers.

For example, The Texas Rangers will be come The Texas 11011001's and so on.

Hopefully this doesn't offend the numbers 0 or 1.

San Diego Padres are offensive to me since the team name is religious based.....

Yeah, the move by the team doesn’t change history. People can and will still wear Wahoo gear. It’s a little different for an organization to use the logo and merchandise it.

However, I can see the team stepping in and making rules against dressing like Chief Wahoo at the ballpark in 2019. I think that’s about as far as the team would go, if at all.

Thinking about changing my name from Joe to Unicorn Glitter Sprinkle. I might fit in better

The NYT article said the Indians would still sell merchandise using the logo it just would not be available on MLB's website. The logo just won't be featured on the field or in the stadium.

So it's okay to be offensive as long as you're not doing it openly? This make little to no sense. It's like putting warning labels on cigarette packs in a way. Oh we full well damn know they'll kill you, are bad for you, cause cancer, bad breath and a variety of breathing issues, but hey, we put a tiny warning on the pack, so our conscious is clear.

Let's tell the full story here. They have to continue to sell it in order to keep ownership of the trademark
