I think that's what most people assume they will do, but good talk.


They will try that, for sure.

Won't work forever, but might make it through my lifetime.


Who are they? The Commissioner came out and told them to get rid of Wahoo and they did. I haven't seen any such approach from baseball otherwise. Seems to me that that is likely the only people who the team would listen to.


My 'they' is the exact same as your 'they'


Thank you, I read "they" as in who was trying to change it, my bad.

If only the commissioner cared as much about straight up con men taking over franchises....

Less than 24 hours later, the call to change the team name has begun

I still believe it won't be changed.

There's always gonna be those that are wanting it changed. I have often maintained that if you were truly wanting to mock an entire race of people, nicknaming your team after them is an odd way to do so.

Intent doesn't matter.

There are now groups of people who have tied their entire identity into the outrage culture and forcing change ("progress") who will never stop. Changing the name won't even slow down the next issue, whatever it may be (eliminating "Indians" from MBL record books, banning all Chief Wahoo merch, reparations for past merch sold, etc...).

The logo can go, the name can go, I frankly don't care as I will be rooting for the baseball team in Cleveland in any form.

I think they should change the names (Indians, barves, skins). See if an actual tribe will pick you up. Atlanta Cherokee, whatever. Otherwise I just don't see the point of naming a team after a race. Change Notre Dame and Minnesota too just to dump that straw man in the ocean, while we're at it.

I'd be in for the Cleveland Miami.

By the same token, WGAF?

Wgaf is literally the best reason to change the names. How hurt can a rational person really be if their sports team's mascot changes? Who cares if you're the lightning bolts or porch monkeys, besides people who think porch monkeys is an offensive term? Nobody right? So change the goddamn name

Yeah, but what about the people who want to stick it to porch monkeys by having the offensive name remain? Some of them are very fine people. and their feelings need to be respected as much as, if not more than, those stupid porch monkeys who get offended.
