I'm not a big stickler for political correctness, but if Native American coalitions can get Chief Illiniwek banned, couldn't they do something about this?
That was on ESPN's frontpage all morning. I'm surprised there hasn't been more brouhaha over the Cleveland baseball club's mascot, especially considering the ruckus raised in 1991 over Atlanta's use of the tomahawk chop. Also, evidence suggests the Indians are not named after Louis Sockalexis, which means they've been propagating an Abner Doubleday-like myth for decades. Oh, and the mascot's name is Chief Wahoo. Chief Wahoo. This doesn't bother enough people for some media outlet to report on it?
Maybe I'm just underestimating people.
