To compare this


to this


Is ridiculous. The Native Americans just want their representation to be respectful and not a joke. The old Braves logo is racists, as is the name Redskins and the Indians logo. The Blackhawks logo, Seminoles logo and other aren't.

This political correctness is complete garbage. Look at Notre Dame. Hello. An imaginary figure in a fighting Leprechaun. Any chance the PC crowd will be demanding ND change anytime soon? Hell no. They'd be laughed out of the country.

The pc crowd can shove it.

Bring back Chief Illiniwek

It's not the PC crowd it's the people themselves. Native Americans have spoken out against some of the name and logos because they are disrespectful.

Plus the US didn't nearly wipe out the entire Irish population after taking their country from them by force.

Asked if high school and college teams should stop using Indian nicknames, 81% of Native American respondents said no. As for pro sports, 83% of Native American respondents said teams should not stop using Indian nicknames, mascots, characters and symbols. Opinion is far more divided on reservations, yet a majority (67%) there said the usage by pro teams should not cease, while 32% said it should.
Activists want the name changed, while most of the actual people are indifferent. If I form a group and claim that the Fighting Irish is offensive to my heritage, should they have to change?

It depends on the nickname and logo. I know for a fact the Seminole tribe has blocked any movement to change Florida States nickname because they are proud of it. Never had an issue with the Fight Sioux or their logo. But willing to bet they don't like the Indians logo or the name Redskins.

Yes bc a fighting leprechaun offends me and is racist. Plus I want to feel like I'm really making a difference.

I just found that Richardson FT sequence hilarious. Just drill four in a row for a handful of free points.

Well, if you sit near the floor, I would have utilized your spot to yell at the tool that is D.J. Byrd.

Hahahaha. I don't, but rest assured I'd do the same if I sat down there.

Orange Krush is kind of a pain in the ass to join, right? I remember a few buddies telling me about how they had to get so many people to pledge money for every 3 hit or something. Ends up getting really expensive if you can't get enough family or whoever to help you reach the requirements.

Yeah, but they have a normal student section you can pay to join, but raising money and being in the Orange Krush (spelled with a "K" for copyright issues, which is absolutely hysterical because it has nothing to do with anything other than that) gets you the best seats.
