I'm offended by midgets, can we outlaw them? Ban them from public places? Something?

Point is...you don't like then get over it. Go play with your liberal friends and dream up more rediculous things to get pissed off at.


sling. you miss the point. consistently. repeatedly. not about offense. it's about principles. plain and simple.

edit: oh yeah, and go hotpink!

There is no priciple to it. The point is who and who is not offended by the name. That's it...sorry to burst your bubble but there is no deeper meaning to this.

You know my whole reason for thinking this name thing is ridiculous is because what is a team name? Its a compliment to whatever you are choosing.

No one wants to be the Miami Pond Scum, or the Washington Worthless Bums. (Oh, they are that aren't they?) But I digress...

Choosing an Amerind name or quality to me is an honor and a compliment. Not a slur.

Besides, most people who sit around and have fits over this kind of thing are usually just looking for an excuse to be offended, and I no longer pay them any attention. I consider them professional whiners.

To all those people who want to use colors for team names... aren't you offending the colorblind people of America? Anything red or green supposedly can't be seen by someone who's officially colorblind.

:-o

Sorry. Just had to point that out.
