I'm offended by the letter "C" logo because it reminds me the times I get a C in my college and makes me very anxious.

Offensive, culturally insensitive, inappropriate... It really shouldn't take too much effort to see how the logo doesn't belong in a modern, advanced society.

I feel bad for the people who have to hang on to and defend things like the Chief Wahoo logo.

I feel bad for the people who find it offensive. IMO there is no way it is intended to be offensive and I wish they would keep it as the logo. Like it or not it's a part of our history.

The next step will be to change the name altogether, and, hopefully, the Braves will be next.

Apparently there was big pressure to do it to help Cleveland land the ASG in 2019.

It's been phasing out over the last 10 years, the AZ Cactus facility does not have any Wahoo posted for benefit of the locals, Topps uses the C as primary logo.

As time has moved on this whole Wahoo fight is one I that just decided not to stress over. This Tribe fan is more interested in seeing significant additions of the faces on the field than the deletion of the face on the hat.

Wether or not intended does not make it any less demeaning or insulting.

"Wahoo doesn't bother or affect me, so it definitely shouldn't bother anyone else. And you're an idiot because it bothers you." - too many people in this thread.

Should we rid our society of everything that people find offensive? Why not leave it as a reminder of what once was and how far we have come?

Hopefully this doesn't offend the numbers 0 or 1.
It is more likely to offend 2, 3, and 4.

The squeaky wheel gets the oil. Most of us don’t have time to care or complain or write letters about these things. We see the news, post a bit on a useless forum during lunch and go about our business.....then there are people who do have that time. Prob a very small number of sport fans but again, squeaky wheel....it is what it is. I find that if you want the real temperature of things in this country you should talk to your neighbors and everyday people (gym, grocery store, etc) instead of watching or reading the news. You will be pleasantly surprised
