glad I picked up a Chief Wahoo bobblehead last season..that was the first thing I did when I entered the stadium.. Chief Wahoo for life!! I cant believe they find the big nose very offensive..
I bought my Chief Wahoo bobblehead in 1995 thinking it was soon gonna be gone. Took longer than I thought, but here we are.

Please change the Red SOX name to the spelling police will feel better.

This thread should be in the politics section because there is so much butthurt on both sides of the issue

The censorship continues. 90% of Native Americans are not offended by the name “redskins.” Next, George Washington will be off the dollar bill because it offends some people that he owned slaves. The censorship is starting to become like 1984 and big brother. The founding fathers would be disgusted with all the censorship that is going on now. You learn through mistakes in history, not by erasing it.

I mean, you can't really erase it. They've been talking about this for years. So this shouldn't be all that surprising. Times change. Attitudes change. It's life.

The reason why teams chose to have American Indians as mascots is to portray them as warriors. The mascots portray them as strong, warrior like people. It is not there to make a mockery of them, it shows them as strong warriors.

Is the logo offensive in 2018? To some people yes

But this should tell you everything you need to know upon first inception

How do some of you make it through the day with so many things offending you.
I feel really bad for you.
Ok, not really.
The pussification continues.

The University of North Dakota fans tried that same argument.

The Naps were named for Napoleon Lajoie, who was named for Napoleon Bonaparte. As leader of France, Napoleon Bonaparte ordered the suppression of a rebellion of black slaves in Haiti. So yeah, Naps is a racist and xenophobic team name.

Yes I know why they were originally named the "Naps". I was referring to taking a nap but if you want to dig go ahead. Anyone can find anything offensive these days.

Does anyone find the terms “going on offense” or “offensive production” offensive? Very aggressive terms here. I think we should change games to strictly defense and make all team names “gray matter”. All seats to these games must cost the same amount. Can’t offend people with less money. All beverages served will be water. Can’t offend people whose family members are alcoholics or obese or diabetic. All food will be soylent. Can’t offend carnivores, herbivores or omnivores. Games will only be 90 seconds long bc we will need to sing the national anthem of every country represented by our players.
