New York Giants? That's offensive to diminutive people.

Miami Dolphins? Those poor creatures are exploited in sea world parks.

Dallas Cowboys? Just think of what those evil, vicious cowboys did to the poor, poor, helpless, completely peace loving indians.

You could probably make a case against every team name if you want to go that route.

My point.

 

Exactly.  Who gets to determine what is offensive?

When you watched Office Space for the first time you definitely thought the guy with the Jump to Conclusions mat had a great idea

I've never watched the show.  Did this character successfully portray complex issues via exanple,  take these issues to their natural conclusion, and thereby  illustrate the extremes to which these issues could be taken?

In essence, what I have accomplished in this thread. 

If so, I humbly accept the compliment.

How bout the Chicago Blackhawks, Atlanta Braves, KC Chiefs, Edmonton Eskimos....gonna be a busy name changin summer....

Blackhawks are named after a military division.

Chiefs are named after KC mayor instrumental in bringing the AFL Texans to KC.

Eskimos use no negative imagery or racial slur.

Braves got rid of screaming Indian logo

nothing inherently negative about those names on the surface. They may want to review appropriateness.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Redskins on other hand is a pure racial slur.

Indians may not need to change the name but the racist negative screaming redface Chief Yahoo logo must go.

That's ridiculous.  It's as 'valid' as saying, 'You sit at your computer and type these offensive posts whilst children are starving in Bangladesh!

The concern is not just with changing the Washington team's name, but where does it stop? 

"You can't continue calling the team the 'Buffalo Bills', William Cody was a drunkard."

"You called the Seattle team the Seahawks.  That species of bird is almost extinct, yet a multi-billion sports league is benefitting from the exploitation of their image!!"

And don't think that there aren't people right now who would agree with my examples above.  It can get that crazy pretty fast.

Is it time for the name to change?  Yes.  No one meant to offend anybody, yet they did.  But you should always have the discussion and not simply kowtow to the mob.

Buffalo Bills: Nothing wrong with being a drunkard.

Since a Seahawk is a fictional animal, the team settled for an augur hawk. According to Seahawks.com, Taima has been surveying the sidelines of CenturyLink Field since 2007. His name means "thunder," and it was chosen by Seahawks fans.

Beautiful bird. I miss falconry.

p.s., an augur is an AFRICAN buteo. The NFL has to USE that fact for brownie points with the players and blm.

We all must remember that it's not up to us to determine whether or not native americans are offended by mt. rushmore/redskins/etc.  The thing is, most of the people pushing this whole movement aren't even those that have the right to be offended, it's young white people.  What are these people trying to prove by hating something not offensive to them more than those that it should/could be offensive to?  The world is becoming a bunch of pussies and it's going to lead to the downfall of civilization lol

Young white people are starting to offend me with their “no life experience, nothing invested so nothing to lose naivety.” Not ALL of them, of course, but many of the protesting kind. All emotion, no brains. 
 

they make me feel like this guy anymore......

It also should be noted, old people have been saying this about young people for thousands of years. 
 

I don’t know if it’s today’s youth IN PARTICULAR, or just how older people view younger people in general.😂😂😂😂😂

No worse than the baby boomers.   America's worst generation. 

Except for the Aquarian; but he's an outlier.

Youre basically too late. It's already here and has been for years. I mean come on. Odds are there was no chance in hell a 2000 computer crash was going to happen. Bullshit.

The easier  the propaganda has grown over the years , the worst it's gotten. 

My grandfather was the last family  farmer.. my dad got weaker, then I got weaker. .I mean mentally  and physically. 

He also taught at a grade school or high school. Things were alot simpler then obviously  though
