When land o lakes took the native American girl symbol off its butter box I knew then Americans had lost all regards for history. The modern age loves to dismiss history .

It's offensive to us who are rational and able to differentiate, to suddenly be told. Nope! Don't use your brain. Let us decide what is deemed offensive.
By no means am I a sports fanatic. I do though think changing the names is bowing to some loonies who've managed to convince communities.

Finally i recommend changing Washington to WashingThese Nuts
No, cowgirls would be offensive to transgender people. Cowpeoples would be less offensive.

Like WashingThese Nuts but of course they would find that offensive.

New York Jets offensive because jets pollute
Pittsburgh Steelers because of factory pollution and steel being used for war
Atlanta Braves offensive to natives


What other team names could be next? This is for fun to poke fun at the always offended.
Oakland Raiders is offensive because my great, great, great, great, great 72nd cousin (17 times removed) was killed on a ship that was attacked by pirates.

This is fun....
Cleveland Indians could be named the Cleveland Fellers (in honor of Bob Feller) and potentially get extra PC points for sounding "LGBTQ" 'positive" then I realized the feminists would complain because it is sexist sounding.



Cincinnati Reds are offensive to Communists....


New York Yankees is offensive because it reminds southerners of the Civil War. It has got to be changed because any reference to Civil War will create undue psychological distress among a certain population.



New York Jets have to be banned for Jets use way to much fossil fuel and we cannot endorse the environmental degradation by glorifying "Jets".


New York Giants is offensive to little people everywhere. Those suffering from Dwarfism are repelled by the name and demand a new size sensitive name and mandatory sensitivity training.



Chicago White Sox are offensive to Polish people and their history needs to be 'rewritten' as the 1919 "Black Sox" scandal is obviously improperly referencing black for negative behavior.


Wiccans everywhere should be up in arms at the NBA Washington Wizards...


Washington Nationals / Montreal Canadiens: sounds to nationalistic the globalists are offended.


PETA and animal lovers everywhere have lots of teams to be upset with for depicting animals of various sorts.


St Louis Blues / Utah Jazz misappropriating a black musical style for their name! OMG!


San Diego Padres and New Orleans Saints have the atheists in an uproar!


These are just a few that come immediately to mind.
