Does anyone have an opinion on removing all native American Indian names on all sports teams? This is interesting.

I say leave them alone, it's only been recently that this was brought up. How about changing names that don't make sense. The UTAH Jazz, really since when has Utah been a hotbed for Jazz? L.A. Lakers, how many Lakes are in L.A.? How about the Ny Giants and the Ny Jets , neither one plays it's HOME games in Ny?

The government is getting involved. Today they removed eight (I think.) trade marks from the Washington Redskins. When will the owner say enough is enough and change the name?
