  1. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Watching my team lose after playing their best game in sometime without a superstar is quite annoying. The Warriors are unfair man.
  2. Super Bowl LIII logo

    SUPER BOWL 2019 or simply SUPER BOWL WWE has done weird stuff with Mania numbers.
  3. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    It was so weird seeing Blake in a new uniform. And he balled out. I know the Clippers didn’t go far with him, but this better be worth being without him.
  4. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    So I’m behind. I just found out my favorite team is trading away it’s best player a year after losing its other best player. A team that didn’t have much best anything to celebrate until they came around. This sucks, but it also looks like something Jerry West would do. I’m gonna wait it out, but I guess that is the life of a Clipper fan anyway.
  5. I get you. It’s a little crazy that 30 people is all it takes. Thanks for the insight.
  6. No disrespect, but I couldn’t care less about the teams history. I care about the history of those marginalized people more. They are the only group of people that has their imagery/likeness used like this and it’s because they didn’t have the numbers to stop it. Outside of the few Native started uses or uses where the Natives are collaborators (those schools you mentioned), the imagery is being used or created by entities with no ties to those people. We don’t need this anymore and if it does exist it should do so when the Native people do it. Also, those polls sound suspect. 90% of how many total?
  7. Very true. Nobody in their right mind would touch the N-word for a team. I’m black and I don’t type it because I know the censor would catch it anyhow. I guess that’s the problem. They are on a different playing field, but I do have to question why a little. Is it because the number of Natives to argue against it are so small that a narrative created by a racist white owner could stand the test of time thus far? A team called the N-words wouldn’t stand because black people wouldn’t have it, we have voices in high places, and have the numbers. I don’t know that can be said for Natives. You aren’t wrong, and going back to my last post, maybe it has evolved so far it doesn’t sting for that high school or others. Just like there are some black people that don’t mind their white friend using the word because he is “down.” I’m not one those along with countless others. It seems like for that link you posted there are a few in the other direction. That’s all I’m getting at. This is healthy though.
  8. Admiral is right here in my opinion. Words do evolve. DC, I can see why one might assume if Native people use it then it’s all good right? There is more nuance there. Let’s take the N-word for example. Was created as a way to harm black people, and over time it evolved into something black people use amongst themselves. It was a sense of victory to take something and strip its power away from the “oppressor.” However, I don’t think white people today should go around using it. Somerhing that has become unique to a certain culture doesn’t give a pass to the masses, especially in areas where profit is to be gained. Which is probably the root of all of this. Redskin may very well be tame to the Native people because it evolved, but (speaking on the N-word again) I’ll be damned if some oil tycoon builds his brand on that term. I’m sure that’s the way many Native people feel about Wahoo or Redskins. There will always be outliers, but the vocal minority should never outweigh the silent majority.
  9. No, you’re right. I guess what I was trying to say is opioids are an epidemic primarily because of its influence on white America. When black folks were going through the cocaine crisis it wasn’t really an issue...until it hit the white community. Cocaine didn’t get the Hogan push opioids did so to speak. I find that weird. Maybe, but boy does he really get the blood boiling for some people.
  10. Good riddance. I think I’m over a race of people being used as logos and mascots at this point. Even the “respectful” ones that I liked. It just doesn’t make sense anymore. Honestly, I don’t know if it ever made any sense. Looking back it’s a classic case of the winners shaping history. The natives were basically wiped out leaving rich white men to tell stories about how Redskins is a name of honor or whatever. Not every case is that sinister I know. I’m glad to see Wahoo go, but the truth is I don’t know if this will ever completely disappear until it starts affecting certain groups. Much like cocaine and opioids weren’t an epidemic until it reached white neighborhoods. I suspect some of those clinging so hard to the “history” of this imagery won’t care until LaVar Ball names one of his JBA teams the Whiteys with a caricature of a white person held in high regard. Obviously logos aren’t the same as a drug crisis, but it’s well past time we start taking better care of each other. We shouldn’t be arguing with Natives, or people that share their plight because “my favorite team had that logo since my dad was a kid.” I think we can let them have this.
  11. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    I don’t know man. I’m not a huge hockey fan, but I’ve been to more Knights games than I ever thought I would. And I had two teams in my backyard back in Cali. Honestly I think the locals are trying to prove a point to the country that there is a heartbeat outside of the strip. We can and will support pro teams. History may not be on our side, but it feels like a movement. It will be interesting to see attendance during a bad year.
  12. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Really? Wow. The light really plays with that color I guess.
  13. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I’m so glad the teal they use now is more green. That old uniform above almost looks blue.
  14. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    The only thing they might’ve had was Pop and his reporter trolling (perceived by some as being an a-hole), but it turns out he’s woke AF. Can’t hate that man either.
  15. 2018 NFL Offseason

    Bortles definitely would’ve passed Dilfer as the one of the worst QBs to win a Super Bowl had things gone better. Dropping him is an easy call.
