That is BS! Last checked, this is America. Sine wen do we not have the freedom of speech, or in this case, freedom to choose a mascot name. Why is this coming out now? Why is it so bad now after they have had the name for decades? I am convinced everyday that our politicians just want names in the news, no matter what. Are you people in Washington some of Hitler's Nazi youth's? Give it a break already. tell whoever is offended to not watch it if they don't like the name.
Are we then going to attack every college and high school across the nation because of a mascot name from years ago? I thought it always symbolized a true warrior of nature. It is not as if they call themselves savages--that I could understand. I hope anyone that supports this whether democrat or republican, does not have a job come the next election. We have more serious things to fix other than Mascot names. Why don't focus your meaningless concerns on the economy or doing away with Obama care?
