Racist? Or no big deal?

I like todays version of the Chief wahoo as opposed to that older version. The script is horrible and I hope they would phase that out! ;-D

Not asking if it's ok, or for permission really. Just asking for opinions.


It's paying homage to a great class of people by naming a professional franchise after them. Like the Titans and Vikings.


My opinion echos ORS.

It seems the people who have a hard time with this sort of thing typically are white people in an elected office. Political activists, etc.

Personally, I've never thought of Chief Wahoo or the Atlanta Braves' Tomahawk Chop to be a racist thing in the least. If I were a fan of either team, I'd have no problems wearing their gear. If I were a Cleveland fan, Wahoo would be on all of it. He's cool. :-D ;-D

I do kinda see the point of "Redskins" being an issue. Would be like having the Dallas Rednecks as a team. Not totally PC, so it would offend some, but at the same time I don't believe it to be a big enough thing to really cause problems or major changes over.

My two pennies on it all. B-)

i dont see anything racial with the hat at all. i would sport it and not even think twice about it....and im descended from cherokee.


ive seen enough things in this world that people will make big deals out of just about anything...even the most minor of things. its almost like people search for things just to stir contriversy.

I'm an Indians fan, and living in Arizona I'm around Native Americans all the time (there are more than a few reservations near here). I've never gotten so much as a dirty look when wearing Indians gear (and I wear it a lot). It's much ado about nothing in my opinion. Sport Wahoo with pride.

This argument always confuses me...what team wants to make fun of themselves? They don't call themselves the Losers, or the Jerks, or the Idiots. These teams were named after the Indians out of respect for what they have accomplished as a people.

Well, after much consideration, I went retro, but not quite as retro as originally thought.

I went with the "Crooked C" from the 70's and I'm really happy. Now I just need to find the right jersey to compliment it.
