90% of natives don't care about the name, look it up. As many Natives care as white people.

No way a team older than us changes their name.
"Chief" does not have a negative connotation. "Redskin" has a very negative connotation to many native americans. Sorry you can't empathize. I don't understand your reference to the Browns at all. Maybe if you spent thirty seconds researching the origin of the "Brown" name you wouldn't spout off drivel in all-caps. I guess I'll help you out, the team is named after head coach Paul Brown. I can't believe you don't understand the differences between the examples you listed. Pulling stats out of your butt and telling US to look it up is a joke. How about you cite this study you refer to? Ninety percent? Embarrassing.
