What is “silliness”?
I thought it was a mediocre name at first, but once I read the “history” behind it I thought it was really good. I have a feeling that any new name would sound a little dumb at first, until you get used to it…and I think this one will grow on people.
Teams have changed their names all the time throughout their history (including the Guardians). Not a big deal.
Yep, totally silly to rename a team that demeans a population of people.
And no, it doesn’t “honor” or “promote” them. Studies show this. It’s fact. It’s not universal but that’s the overall slant. And it’s not that close.
I’m sure you can find an article, but for the ones you could find I can find more and more scientifically oriented ones that say what I just said.
It’s a negative name that promotes “bad” things, overall.
