Cleveland Indians Looking Into Changing Name

Recommended Posts

In these times, I am convinced the name will change to one that will NOT relate to Native Americans.

How about a name that is inanimate? Maybe "The Cleveland North Coasters" (oops..that may offend Cedar Point LOL). Maybe just the "North Coast", nickname "Coasters".

Cleveland Storms...no that's racist.... Cleveland White Caps, oops, that's racist. Cleveland Buckeyes, no that is racist, too. A buckeye is dark brown on the outside but white on the inside.

crap.

Okay, here's an idea - the Cleveland Ones, starting with them winning the superbowl this coming season. Then the team they beat in the superbowl, maybe Kansas City - name them the Kansas City Twos. In order that they end up in the draft, all the way down to "cincinnatti 32's" and "pittsburg 31's" ........

none of those numbers are racist, so there ya go.

It doesn't work so well for jerseys, every year? the name would change........

Lean into it -- the Cleveland Serpent Mounds? Never mind the fact that the namesake is located just 60 miles east of Cincinnati.

"Shane Tiny Canadian Pussy Douche, climbing the serpent"

 

[Note to the editorial staff: Yes, an Indians pitcher does share last names with the Canadian singer.  You may now turn off the autocorrect!]

Sorry Gip...

1) It's Bill Haley & the Comets

2) Elvis did mostly ballads...Chuck Berry is TRULY the King of Rock & Roll!! (my opinion)

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."
