    Yes! I mean, I wouldn't give up rooting for my beloved Packers, but They'd definitely move up a notch in my "Teams-I-like-for-stupid-reasons-like-they-have-a-cool-name-or-I-live-near-thei r-home-stadium" list.



    The Onion posted an article a few years back that the Washington Redskins changed their name to the "DC Redskins" to resolve the controversy. It's started making the rounds again. :D

    They threw a fit with Florida State University having the name of "Seminoles". But, from what I understand, they have an agreement...
    possibly monetary...with the local area Seminole tribes (there are
    several Indian names for some Florida cities). They are on very good
    terms with the university, and have been for several years.

    They also have an excellent meteorology department, and even created
    a model used by the National Hurricane Center with their forecasts.

    I must say. I like that name. Very "catchy". There's a hockey team the Senators that's availble but Lobbyists is much more "catchy". Let's put that one in the suggestion box.

    From what I gather, its alredy all but sure that they will change their team name before the start of the next NFL season, whenever that may be.

    The Dixie Chicks = The Chicks
    Aunt Jemima
    and so on and so forth... this is one time that I do agree with you, Hustler, we don't need to go changing everything.

    The whole master/slave thing that was discussed a short while ago on DN is silly too..

    Changing the name of the team would technically mean disbanding it & creating another seperate team. I know NFL teams change location often, such as the Cleaveland Rams becoming the LA Rams - but changing the name of the team itself means ending its legacy. Shouldn't that be considered?

    I think that's correct. The worst part is for all the merchandising and printed items. When the name changes, the items are worthless, or they
    become collectors items.

    It's still deeply offensive to my sensibilities. I know that English football teams regularly changed their names back in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Manchester United, for instance, was founded as Newton Heath & West Ham United were known as Thames Ironworks F.C. I suppose I can see why The Hammers changed their name!

    Really? I grew up in the northwest US, and I've always heard of LA referring to Los Angeles.

    It is...but we do things differently down here. <G>

    At times, some have referred to Arkansas as "Sasnakra" (Arkansas
    spelled backwards), as that's the way stuff was done. Years ago,
    before they had "The Arkansas Lottery", they said "gambling was
    illegal". Yet, they allowed betting on the horses at Oaklawn Race
    Track in Hot Springs, and on the greyhounds at Southland Greyhound
    Park in West Memphis. To me, that's a double standard.

    Years ago, when I was working in silkscreen printing, one customer
    came in for a deer hunting style shirt (hunting is real big here).
    But he wanted "muzzle loaders" spelled as "muzzel loders". After I
    and the artist corrected it (I did a ton of proofreading of stuff),
    the customer said "that's not how he wanted it", and I blew a gasket.

    While the owner was right there, I angrily replied "And they wonder
    why Arkansas' literacy rate is the lowest in the country!! Stuff like
    this makes us look like a bunch of dumb hicks. If there had been
    something on the order that 'he wanted it that way', I wouldn't have
    said a word!!".

    It makes me glad that I'm not a native Arkansan (I'm originally
    from Florida).
