This has been going on for years, sponsors are jumping on the band wagon to show how woke and progressive they are

I don't know what is worse. The fact that NFL is still a thing... or the fact that they are changing the name... or... the fact that anyone cares.

Isn't the NFL like the WWF?

Are they changing the name because American Indians owned slaves?

Read history books and first hand accounts.
indians werent noble
They were vicious murderous savages and thieves
Their culture praised that. Was built on it.
They killed and made war for fun and sport

And today they want you to think they were noble people.
Taken advantage of by the white man.


and new generations braineashed into believing it

There was a reason teams chose these names.........

But lets be frank.....
They may have been brave violent warriors....
But but they weren't exactly what you call victorious....

They started fighting in Virginia...
Ended up defending San Diego.....

I am thinking that if the reason why we should remove all confederate statues, names on things and flags, because they lost, the Indians lost too, to the same army. Screw them. The winners get to write the history.
