Default indians remove chief wahoo logo

CLEVELAND -- Divisive and hotly debated, the Chief Wahoo logo is being removed from the Indians' uniform next year.
The polarizing mascot is coming off the team's jersey sleeves and caps starting in the 2019 season, a move that will end Chief Wahoo's presence on the field but may not completely silence those who deem it racist.

The Associated Press was informed of the decision before an official announcement was planned for Monday by Major League Baseball.
After lengthy discussions between team owner Paul Dolan and MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, the Indians are taking the extraordinary step of shelving the big-toothed, smiling, red-faced caricature, which has been used in used in various expressions by the team since 1947.
However, the American League team will continue to wear the Wahoo logo on its uniform sleeves and caps in 2018, and the club will still sell merchandise featuring the mascot in Northeast Ohio. The team must maintain a retail presence so that MLB and the Indians can keep ownership of the trademark

Absolutely ridiculous. They are caving in to the PC movement in this country.

The logo honors native Americans. It does not ridicule them. I am part native American and not the least bit offended by Cleveland Indians, Washington Redskins or Chicago Blackhawks.

It is too late now, but this PC movement has gotten out of hand.

I guess Cowboys should change their name to the Dallas horse riders. PETA will probably object to animal and bird names such as Eagles, Cardinals, Tigers, Hawks, Seahawks, Bulls, etc.

This drives me crazy.

Me and my family are First Nations from the Pacific Northwest,as well as Central Alberta. I am Cree and Coast Salish. I find none of those references degrading or disrespectful. We actually have found those names to be very cool and fun over the years. Blackhawks, or Winter Hawks or Indians or Redskins who cares, there fun names and I wish this news was not real.

Go washington Bullets!

and go Blazers, I see them picking up some steam, great game tonight $$$, can't believe I got them at + last night.
