Mods, go ahead and lock this thread.


“And then the Chiefs. There are many ways that you could interpret the name ‘chief.’ It’s not the name that bothers me. It’s hearing that damn Tomahawk chop.””

You can't name your team the Chiefs and then get upset when your fans want to act like Indians. If the Chiefs don't like it, they should change their name.

Cheesy Mustache QB might make an appearance.

New warning: Don't get in a fight with someone who doesn't even need to bother to buy ink.

I've always thought it was strange that in this day and age we still use the word "Indians" as we now know it was used just because homeboy thought he was in India. Granted, Cleveland Native Americans doesn't have the same ring to it.

Somehow associating the tomahawk chop with Indians is less racist to me than associating it with native Americans.
