I'll lay it out there; I'm a very politically left leaning dude. that being said I can't for the life of me see how The Fighting Sioux logo and name is in any way offensive to the tribe it represents. I think the name and logo are tastefully done and pays homage to the namesake. I could see how someone could argue the Cleveland Indians logo, since it's a caricature by nature (I'm not one of those that oppose it), and The Washington Redskins...that's a racial slur no matter what spin you put on it. I watched the same thing happen in my backyard with Marquette and this is equally sad and pointless. I hope the vocal minority that spearheaded this campaign enjoys their shallow victory. Maybe they can get rid of Bucky Badger next; he's pretty violent looking after all. "Hostile and abusive" some may say.
