    I dunno.

    Indians have lots of money to voice their displeasure if they so chose, and I'm not hearing the Sycuan Tribe stating they are offended.

    This. It's retarded political correctness and I hope the fucktards keep it out of my sport. I have seen many a Native American sporting Redskins garb up here.
    The people who are most offended by it couldn't give a rat's ass about football, they just want to get their NewsSpeaky little tendrils into everything.

    a friend of mine in middle school was related to him. his mom set up a day where we played some ball with him. he was late so we smoked cigarettes in the bathroom at the field. he walked in and caught me smoking/not my friend. when we played ball I think i said i was more of a sonics fan than seahawks fan. but i said that I respected steve largent. after that zorn just threw bullet passes at me all day. pretty much bruised my ribs but i never let on lol

    He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

    My high school mascot was the "Indians" and had been since like the '50s or '60s. They changed it right after I graduated ('91). I was mad. Our class paid for a mural on the outside wall which they had to paint over with the new mascot. :mad:
