Can you you tell me for certain that there aren't a lot of people who really like the team name? We can talk about this all we want, but since there are no real numbers showing for/against the name change in relation to native american people neither you nor I are any more right in our statements.
Uh huh. No way. No moving the goal posts here. You said "offended." What you really meant to say, it sounds like now, was "annoyed" or "irritated." Based on this thread, I have no doubt that you, @Gunther, @newtogolf, @14ledo81, and, I'm sure, countless others, might be annoyed at the name change. But don't try to confuse that with a group of people who are offended by the flippant use of a derogatory name for them and their ancestors.
Not sure what this comment means, because if you knew me at all, you'd know I'd happily admit when I'm wrong and have done so many times.
Which is why most people wouldn't hold any grudges for the past use of the name. They just ask, quite reasonably, that it now be changed. It surprises me that people that that is really so much to ask.
