    I found this to be quite entertaining concerning team renaming. 😂 "This e-mail was sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington Redskins: Dear Mr. Page: I agree with our Native American population. I am highly jilted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward. Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns. The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. It's offensive to us white folk. The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men's lives. I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres. Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates! Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children. The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children. The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children. The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children. The Milwaukee Brewers. Well that goes without saying. Wrong message to our children. So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the do-nothing Congress loves. As a die-hard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in mind, suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women's athletic teams to something other than "the Beavers" (especially when they play Southern California). Do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers? I always love your articles and I generally agree with them. As for the Redskins name, I would suggest they change the name to the "Foreskins" to better represent their community, paying tribute to the dick heads in Washington DC."

    I think he's about 2 years from a locked dementia ward. Hyperorality is a sign of frontotemporal dementia, but that is usually a faster onset. He's been sniffing women and girls in public inappropriately for years, so it might just be regular old Alzheimer's and he's just a pervert. The people should demand that Biden and Trump take a cognitive exam on live television during one of the debates because they've got the nuclear codes.

    ..... to play a game. All while teachers, nurses, police officers, firemen and trash collectors all have to live a 90 minute drive away from the cities they work in because they can't afford to live in the places they serve. What's even crazier is if the owner can sign his name on that pay check, what must he be making? Enjoy that $25 parking, $12 hot dog, $16 beer and $150 seat the next time you root on your heroes.

    First, there won't be a season in 2020. When there's 63,000 new cases of Corona Virus in 1 day with positivity rates reaching 28% and 26% in 2 states while Florida is at about 20%. If you work in health care, there's GIGANTIC concerns about the enormous rise in hospitalizations. If NFL Camps start in late July - this trend isn't good news at all. Some NFL Teams have already had a few guys get the virus before they've even practiced together. Not many NFL formations on the line of scrimmage promote the spacing needed to limit the risk/spread of the virus. As for NuCuckoo, he's under contract with a golden opportunity in an offense that features the TE. Rosenhaus will remain in his ear reminding him if he gets hurt in Cleveland - there won't be a good contract anywhere in 2021. Having said that, it'll be up to the leadership here to remind him he will have the best audition stage of his short career for a new contract ahead. If he's a brat, there's more than 1 way to remove him from the team while keeping hostage under contract (if that's the route he chooses).

    I think what we are missing from all of this is once the Indians decided to go away from Chief Wahoo, what they realized is they no longer have a mascot (slider does not count). Personally, I hope they keep the name as it is incredibly generic (unlike redskins or braves) but I think its a losing battle in today's times. Other than the Block C (which I like but from a marketing standpoint is extremely boring and only so much you can do) they have nothing they can brand out with and sell. This is why I think the plan to change the name has been in the works for years. What's going on in today's times gives them the perfect opportunity to make the switch with the least amount of blowback. Yes, there are people who will swear off the team but when you average 15k people in the stands on a 93 win team, how loyal are your fans? They will find a way to negotiate to keep the trademarks on Indians and Chief Wahoo but ultimately this team name is going to change and this is why I believe Spiders is going to be the final answer. There is a connection to the teams history and even though they were bad, they did win a championship. It has tons of marketing and branding potential. It's not overused as a mascot or a symbol. They can call Progressive Field "the web" or whatever spider home you want. It's not tied to the Rock n Roll Hall of fame which we need to get away from as the "only" thing in Cleveland. Guardians is ok and has lots of freedom to design and a connection to the city but it sounds contrived. Long story short, it's all about the marketing potential and the ability to sell merchandise.

    Good take. While I'm not a Trump fan, he's facing stuff not many presidents have ever faced. I'd feel sorry for him, but he does bring some crap upon himself with his Tweets. Pray for our USA.

    I would doubt "Indian" is offensive to Native Americans- unless they're on the Omar-AOC nut job fringe. https://www.cleveland.com/tribe/2020/07/the-cleveland-indians-changing-their-name-i-dont-like-it-i-also-understand-it-i-guess-terry-pluto.html Virtually every religious based school I'm aware of that teaches Native Americans has the word "Indian" in it. St. Joseph's (Lakota Sioux), St. Stephens (Arapaho), St Bonaventure (Navajo), St Labre (Northern Cheyenne)... Then there's the Wind River Indian Reservation & many others..... Um, some other name you'd like us to call you instead? Sorry- changing the Indians name is going overboard on the PC scale- we got rid of Chief Wahoo to appease the radicals....

    I've had season tickets since 1979. Tickets in the Bleachers then were $6/game, so it was $66 for that entire season. Now, I have two seats in the Upper Deck, cost is $1304 ($65 a seat, per game). Fortunately I can afford it, and I still love going even though the team has caused me much pain. I usually don't buy any concessions inside, as we tailgate before hand. maybe I drink a couple $10 beers if I want. The way I always looked at expenditures when my kids were young was don't spend what you can't afford. So I just took one of my 3 sons to the game instead of the whole family. Please don't report me to 696-KIDS lol.

    I received a free 12yrs of public education and then got my contractors license.... and from the state of California no less! (and with it came a VERY nice life). Do I win the game of look at me? If not, I sent my daughter (the 1st in my family to ever go away to college and receive a BS) to get her DPT at the #9 PT school on the planet in Melbourne Australia. Hey, this is fun!

    Mattis is just plain dishonest. https://noqreport.com/2020/06/04/president-releases-scathing-letter-from-john-dowd-that-obliterates-jim-mattis/ Former Marine Corps Judge Advocate and State Department attorney John Dowd wasn’t happy with recent remarks by General Jim “Mad Dog” Mattis regarding President Trump’s handling of the riots. The former Secretary of Defense went public with his displeasure towards the President, echoing Democratic talking points while embracing the leftist mentality of supporting protesters and defying law enforcement. Dowd sent a letter to Mattis. He apparently copied President Trump, who subsequently posted the blistering letter on Twitter (transcript below): I thought this letter from respected retired Marine and Super Star lawyer, John Dowd, would be of interest to the American People. Read it! pic.twitter.com/I5tjysckZh — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 4, 2020 Jim, I slept on your statement and woke up appalled and upset. You lost me. Never dreamed you would let a bunch of hack politicians use your good name and reputation—earned with the blood and guts of young Marines. You did what you said you would—engage in this discourse. Marines keep their word. The phony protesters near Lafayette park were not peaceful and are not real. They are terrorists using idle hate filled students to burn and destroy. They were abusing and disrespecting the police when the police were preparing the area for the 1900 curfew. Jim, this is the new nihilism. See Dan Henninger in WSJ today. Marines support the police in harm’s way. Did you forget that President Bush used active duty Marines to quell the riots in LA? President Trump has countless cities and some snowflake governors and mayors wetting themselves in the use of force to protect innocent lives and property. The AG of Massachusetts thinks burning property is good protest. Three more policemen were stabbed and shot in NYC last night. Think about it. Should he be upset about the obvious failure in leadership? Where are you Jim? Marines go to the fight. No one divided this country more than Obama. He abandoned our black brothers and sisters. He gave guns to the cartels. He apologized for our precious sacrifice and generosity overseas. You remember, he fired you. President Trump has done more to help our minority brothers and sisters in three years than anyone in the last fifty. Ask the black pastors. Ask the leaders of the black colleges and universities. He got them funded. Ask them about the prison reform which ended the draconian sentences imposed on young black men by the law enacted by Biden and his hacks. You need to bone up on your homework and stop listening to Uncle Leon. I understand, you had to stick to the assigned narrative which did not include three years of corrupt investigations and evidence to destroy this President, his office, and his lawful free election. Nancy has no tolerance for dissent in the ranks—including those with stars. You said nothing of the ugly, hate filled, disgraceful comments of Pelosi, Schumer, Perez and other Democrat hacks defaming the President and his office. You said nothing of the unlawful sanctuary cities and the unlawful release of hoodlums. You said nothing of the resistance movement to paralyze our courts and our government operations. You said nothing of the obstruction and subversion of our immigration laws. You said nothing of MS-13 killers and the drug cartels who own huge sections of our major cities. Jim, do you think that rhetoric and those corrupt actions were inspiring and unifying? Do you think the DI’s at Parris Island would find such behavior as unifying? Maybe, your problem, is a lot deeper. Perhaps you ought to explain how and why you (and John Allen), as CG Central Command, did not engage and take out Iranian Major General Soleimani who roamed the Middle East and wreaked havoc and death on our American boys with his infamous IEDs? Why did it take President Trump to have the instincts and balls to take him out (of course over the objection the geniuses in the Pentagon)? Looks like the Persian mullahs were a one horse sleigh and Trump nailed the horse… forever. It has been quiet ever since. Perhaps, your anger is borne of embarrassment for your own failure as the leader of Central Command. Did you applaud when the President recognized the central problem in the Middle East? Did you applaud the President when he wanted to save American lives by bringing them home in one piece? John M Dowd What Dowd said about Jim Mattis is what America needed to hear. President Trump has been justified in his decisions, from taking out Soleimani to pressing for these senseless riots to end. Mattis is a Democratic operative, a verbal rioter, and part of the “Resistance.”

    The Browns gave season ticket holders the opportunity to opt out of this season. I chose that option, so no Browns games for me this year. Kind of sad. I have been making the 600 mile trek 6-7 time a year since 04, and usually 3 times since our return. The up side is my 2021 tickets are now paid in full, so assuming I make it that far, it will seem like a free season. I know we have several season ticket holders on the board. What are you guys doing? Holding or opting out?

    I wouldn't even go that low- probably 90% of Democrats think this woman is mentally ill. But I will admit- if you take the Democratic platform to it's ultimate end- you wind up with nut jobs like Omar and Bernie. I may not like Trump, but folks like Omar and her ilk scare the mortal shit out of me....
