    Look Redskins I can see. I mean it does sound offensive. I get that one. I just didn’t realize Indians was such a horrible slur. I know we have a couple schools here called the Indians. I’ll be curious what happens with them.

    I mean Stanford was once known as the Indians and they changed it to the Cardinal. So there definitely is a precedence.

    I think if it wasn't for the ridiculous mascot that they had that the name could have survived

    The Indians? Absolutely that Chief Wahoo shit really did them in.

    I mean hell the Redskins logo was drawn by an Indian, and was treated with great pride and reverence, and people still hated the name.

    The snooty public high school here in Westlake called the Warriors uses a lot of Indian shit in their school mascotry, and so forth. They do those offensive Indian chants and the hatchet shit during games. I wonder what’s going to happen with them because our community actually has been coming down on the school a lot for all that. Some of the brats that go there have been complaining that it will take away their identity if they can’t do those things. You are such a fucking spoiled brats. FYI that was the school my daughter was supposed to go to but she chose not to because she just hated all the people that went there from middle school. Haha.

    I can’t remember anymore that might be a nickname like the Farm. That’s another one of their big names they’re known as. We used to yell “Beat the Farm” at the football games so I guess that’s something they used a lot.

    The Indians are changing their name?!?

    So much for the Iroquois...the reason the name was picked in the first place.

    I know for me the team (which absolutely sucked while I was growing up in the 1970s), was the reason I learned about the Iroquois...that and finding countless arrowheads digging in my backyard.

    The team was so bad, the best part was their name and Chief Wahoo.

    Those 70s Indians teams also had the ugliest fucking uniforms ever too. Matched their horrific play on the field

    Brett, I was a little torn watching the USC/UCLA game last night. I've always been more of a USC football fan, but my daughter is a Freshman at UCLA. We watched the last half of the 4th quarter together and I felt a little bad for her. USC has had quite a knack for pulling games out at the end this season. I saw something today that they are projected to play Indiana in the Fiesta Bowl.
