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.

of course a fan of the Baltimore Browns would know very well the origin of the Cleveland Browns name

There is nothing I could say to counter the sucking black hole of ignorance that this thread is.

At least they'd match the brains of some of the ones who start them then.

*Sigh*

It is inevitable, isn't it?

Then what do you guys suggest changing it to?

Warriors? Pigskins?

Let's get this straight. Are you asking because "it is inevitable" or are you conceding the name might be offensive to more than a few "whiners"? I'm curious why you'd *sigh* after your not even facile arguments were disposed of.

I'm saying because everyone won't stop complaining we might as well think of a new name. My opinion doesn't matter in the bigger scheme of things.

Also, didn't I tell you not to talk to me? No one gives a fuck about you around here.
