Our evil we're here to take over patriot was the best

fuck the new friendly elvis head



The Patriots once had one of the best logos in the NFL. I probably would not dislike them if they still had it.

Syracuse University changed from being the "Orangemen" to just "Orange" due to wanting to remain gender neutral. Supposedly the name is entirely related to the school colors but I remember hearing about before getting Otto the Orange as a mascot they had the "Saltine Warrior" so they stopped that in the 70's r 80's when a lot of programs were trying to be more politically correct. I remember St John's also being previously called the "Redmen" to now being called the "red storm" though i like this name better.

Umass still has Minutemen, and call the womens teams Minutewomen

syracuse is just a bitch made jersey school with no culture that had to run from the their own conference so they could stop getting destroyed by uconn over and over

The French are to blame. French trappers coined the term buffalo, from the French boeuf[/]. Apparently they name has been around longer than bison in North America.

Either do the right thing and change the name and the logo, or bask in your ignorance and keep both. Don't try and tip toe around the issue and half-ass the notion that you actually give a fuck about the ignorance of your team name.

The university of North Dakota recently was forced to drop their "Fighting Sioux" nickname by the voting public. Until 2015 they won't have a nickname, which just seems kinda odd, lol.

But I agree the Redskin name needs to go. Horribly offensive.





while were at it can we get rid of the Fighting Irish too :p

I'm a dc native. I don't care really. And I am a redskin fan. I think the problem is the majority of native americans don't have a problem with it. Needs to be more of an outcry. More pissed about the bullets tbh.
