Re: MLB Offseason 2012

Well, I hate the Braves because I'm a Phillies fan and they were always on TV a la the Cowboys and Notre Dame. But I'm not offended by the name (although I'm also not Native American). Braves is about as innocuous a tribute to Native Americans as there can be. The Indians logo and the Washington Redskins have obvious reasons to be considered offensive, but I'm not sure the point of removing any Indian-related team name. Hell, even the Golden State Warriors are technically an Indian reference even if I'm sure most people in Oakland don't know that.
