Agreed Beer Guy; rare is the only way to have a steak or roast beef.

Goes good with a nice wheat beer as well. . .

Here in the United States the word Indian or any derivative are being removed from sports teams especially in the schools.

I can never understand why that is. What greater honor than to have a sports team with such a name? The name if a sports team should reflect the qualities that the team wishes to represent such as bravery and toughness and a winning attitude and proud spirit.

Anyways... I guess there are smarter people than me who make these decisions.

Aw 2020, where branding your company with anything other than Caucasian imagery is somehow racist.

...and branding with Caucasian imagery is also racist, or privileged, I dunno...

Yes change it to SJW's you have white privileged warriors who know better than anyone else .

White very pale skinny or fat never fit with a hammer and sickle image walking with a lap top is the best image right now for the Edmonton team .

That would be best for all concerned .

Yes, an androgynous Caucasoid SJW as their mascot. Perfect.

I would say that the best way to handle this is a poll of actual Inuit people. If the people who "should" be offended by this are actually offended, then by all means change the name. If the Inuit are fine, then this is a case of people being offended by something on behalf of someone else, and the name need not be changed in that scenario.

Probably only a matter of time before this issue flares up again.

McGill University changed their team name after a vocal group demanded this change even though the school already conducted a review years ago and proved that the origins of the name came from the color of the uniforms their athletes wore. The school decided at that time, to keep their name. But then the PC mafia came along years later and poof; name now changed.

Your right .

But

They already did exactly that but here we are again . Many couldn't understand why someone would want to change the name . Because I am no longer allowed to validate my claims and won't bother doing the work any longer you will have to look it up on google .

It's there somewhere I know I didn't dream it .

I found some of the things you may be talking about. The Inuit have desired more community engagement from the team, but "no consensus emerged to support a name change". It looks like the Inuit don't really care about the name, in which case it doesn't need to be changed.

Its really starting to get ridiculous, lets just boil it down to the most commonly used sports nicknames- Tigers, Lions, Eagles, Hawks, Wildcats, Bulldogs, etc., forget being unique, just those regularly used names can or will picked from. Really??

And this doesnt pertain to just to sports! It's everything else, consumer products, corporations, etc. Theres no originality for marketing because someone or some people will find something about it and complain that it offends them.

Seems to me people do not take the time to do the research and rather react than try to be proactive.

Sooner or later those will be outlawed too due to "cruelty to animals"

While we're at it let's ban the names Maple Leafs and Canadiens. They sound too nationalistic and patriotic. That's not allowed anymore either according to the SJW mob.
