Re: MLB Offseason 2012

I don't get it either. I think the Chop is great, I picked one up passing through the airport there one time. I don't get how 'Braves' is offensive to anyone. Seems to me they are honoring them more than trashing them.

What drives me nuts is the hypocrisy and inconsistency when it comes to Indian themed names vs. other ethnic team names.

By that same token, shouldn't Irish people complain about the Boston Celtics, or Scandinavian folks about the Minnesota Vikings?
