Cleveland Pence's....since they obviously are pussies who can't do anything without getting their wives permission.

Although they got rid of it a couple of years ago, the Indians were using the Chief Wahoo logo in various capacities as recently as 2018. Had that been phased out much earlier, the team might have been able to withstand the pressure and criticism to change the nickname. For instance, the Golden State Warriors had a logo while in Philadelphia that would be considered highly offensive and completely unusable today. That logo was dropped when the team moved to the Bay Area in 1962, but logo imagery with an Indian headdress continued through the 1968-69 season. Effective the 1969-70 season, all connections to Native Americans were dropped by the Warriors and the team has never gone back to them. So despite the name and the early connotations of it, and admittedly Warriors is a more generalized and less loaded term, the team has faced little legitimate pressure to change its name

It's probably for the best. A lot of things that may have been acceptable or normal back in the day isn't now. It's not as bad as The Redskins name but it may be best to update things.

I think we're missing the most important aspect of this: what does this mean for the "Major League" movies?!

Don't see the issue or any need for complaints with this change. Team franchise names aren't sacred.

Try telling that to a Yankees, Celtics, or Lakers fan....

Ken Patera just did a shoot interview where he said it's ridiculous that using the n word is so off limits now. That back in the 70's everyone was using it but now it's bad. Some people are out dated on their views. Ken is a legend but...
