They are turning it into a huge negative, I never thought about it like this growing up.

By the start of the 2018 season the name will be changed. By that I mean the 1st day of training camp.

I, personally, voted for 'yes.' Half because I'm sick of hearing about the name and half because the name is considered offensive. At this stage, I'm somewhat resigned to the fact that it's going to change and I'm pretty much fine with that.

Does this change anyone's opinion?

It didn't change mine, but I never had a strong opinion one one way or another. I personally, won't be changing my allegiance if they do change their name. I root for the team/organization/players, the name doesn't make much of a difference. Now, of course, there are plenty of names I wouldn't like, but I also don't feel the need to get my panties in a wad just because this is being discussed.

Personally, I don't have a problem with the name, but the fact that a. some people do and b. Webster's defines it as:


I can see why some people are calling for a name change.

None of the definitions that say its offernsive explain why its offensive. Hell it seems they don't even know how to define the word. Its a hand full of people at best. Yesterday they were lucky to have 100 people in that room and 20% of them were speakers.

Odds that either of you won't remember this bet in 5 years, I'd put them at 50/50.

Are you sure that you'll have the same computer in 5 years? Lol. Either way I agree with you, I don't see the name changing in 5 years either.

Your computer will probably be busy managing the court systems by then.

I can see why some people are calling for a name change.
Same. Think a name change isn't a big deal. The team is and will be the same to me either way. And I also understand why people think it's offensive.
