We now know the Redskins name is soon on its way out. How long before they look for another sports team name to be considered offensive?

New Orleans Saints is offensive to atheist and Muslims.
San Francisco 49ers because of what those miners did to the natives and the land
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.

Sports should stay out of politics. It should be a place of enjoyable fun and a safe place away from the news. Even if just for a few hours. When you make it like watching the news people will turn it off.

its going to get to the point where all these teams in all sports are just going to be named at the beginning of the season with a number earned from the previous season, much like formula one dispenses car numbers, or did, they may have changed that practice. so the champions from the previous season will be team one, the runner up team two, etc. they will keep that number until the end of the championship game when new numbers will then be issued.


we need to get the politics out of sports completely.

All buildings, streets, bridges,etc will be numbered. No letters since that will offend someone. Also, how about we stop funding stadiums?

Dolphins, Tigers, Lions, Broncos, etc - offensive to animal lovers.
Vikings - offensive to those of Scandinavian heritage.
Bengals - offensive to both Bengalis and tiger lovers.
Padres - offensive to Hispanics and non-Catholics.
Cowboys - offensive to Native Americans, animal lovers, and probably others.
Celtics - offensive to the Irish.
76ers - also offensive to the British.


Can we keep the Orioles, Blue Jays, and Ravens? And maybe add robins, sparrows, and chickadees? Those can't be offensive to anyone. But the Cardinals will have to go, given their affiliation with the Vatican.

How have we on either side come up so weak as to worry about names? What did all our ancestors fight and die for? If we are going to do it then do it all at once and be done with it. Then let`s concentrate on better health care and education for all of us. Right now today we shouldn`t be our own worst enemy. Stop buying into the hate spreaders....

I'm offended by the Denver Broncos, because this is going to be offputting to the Vegan community.
