Good.
I'd be perfectly fine with them just changing the name too...and hey, maybe that bitch-ass team that plays football in Washington can change their name and logo as well. I'm all for that.

I don't intend to come off as insensitive, and I get the argument, but I just dont see this as necessary. In my mind, it doesn't promote racism. A swastika promotes racism, not a logo.
But, Im not a Native American either.

Fair enough...in my mind, if a group of people finds it offensive it needs to go.

thats pretty broad though, I mean in this day and age you can find a group offended by Taco Bell.
I say that in jest, but I feel like if you start tinkering with everything offensive, who knows.
Again, Im not so well versed in this specific topic but obviously I am aware of our treatment of Native Americans and Im sure there's a large enough contingent to effect change. I just think its more nitpicking than anything.

IT'S FINALLY HERE!!!!!!!!!!!

Been listening to At-Bat at work. Cubs game first, currently Yankees. Then tonight, headed to Safeco Field for opening day with the Mariners!

Love having a pro baseball team nearby now. 20 years in South Carolina without one. I've missed out so much.
