The Blackhawks said they are not changing

SDS

I think it’s a bad name, I think the saw the IANS ending and a popular movie franchise and thought it was good… It’s better than the Washington Football Team, who whenever I see their abbreviation of WFT i mix it up in my head and see WTF.

SDS

I hope it doesn't hurt anyone's feelings

SDS

As a long time Tribe fan, it saddens me. Hope it makes the cancel culture people happy... but it won't. On to the next thing to change...

SDS

As a Indians (not a guardians fan) I hate it. My whole family hates it. We had the rocks and the the spiders right their and we went with gaurdians and baby groot isn’t even are mascot I don’t have Twitter so I’m ranting here. You might see a lot more of me.

SDS

I don't mind them changing the name, but my first impression of the logo and name is that it looks/sounds like a minor league team or a fictional team for a Disney channel original movie. I'm sure I'll get used to it, but I think they could have done better.

SDS

Hey, at least there were no mean tweets today

SDS

That logo looks like a semi pro team. I dont like Guardians as the nickname personally, but they at least couldve come up with something better for the logo. It's like a bad Angels knockoff.

SDS

Now when you watch Major League there’s going to be a disclaimer before the movie that you may be offended by the outdated team name.

I think I was watching rush hour on mtv and a disclaimer popped up saying there is offensive and outdated stereotypes or something like that.

SDS

I used to work with a guy who grew up in Cleveland. I asked him what he thought about it, and he said, “It wouldn’t have mattered what they called it. They will always be the Indians or the Tribe to me.”

You think they’ll change the name of the Cuyahooga River next? Is that how this works? Change the name of anything that isn’t neutral? Or am I getting it wrong?

I live near Ft. Payne, Alabama. They used to keep Native Americans there before moving them along the Trail of Tears. Is no one gonna fight to rename it? We’re going to prioritize the name change of a professional baseball organization over things that pretty much represented a genocide?

SDS

A lot of people who probably call others snowflakes sure seem [censored] hurt by a team deciding to change their name out of respect for the people who are part of the effected group who have protested against it.
I can agree the name and logo are bad but am totally down with the change

SDS

This isn't really cancel culture IMO. It was time. Some of those other teams have the blessing to use the name and likeness that they do. The broad term Indians isn't really appreciated by Native Americans. Its time they change it. Same with the Redskins. I realize most Americans have no real idea what our indigenous people have went through over the years and thats ok, but acting like their opinions or voices don't matter is simply racism. I think its good that Cleveland has decided to move away from that name. Its out of respect, not cancel culture.

SDS

Also to go with the goofy logo if they don't have wings on their helmets like Thor I will be very disappointed

Same thing for tom and Jerry. Bought my child the whole series years ago and whoopee Goldberg gave a long speech about racism and how things have changed. I love tom amd jerry.

SDS

How long till it changes in game?

SDS

Guardians refer to the Hope Memorial Bridge, not the movie. People say stupid, but if you look at names that we’ve grown accustomed to, they’re pretty bad: Cubs, Sox, Nationals, or plain inaccurate: Lakers, Jazz

The Lakers and Jazz are due to franchises relocating. They would have had new names/tweaks if it would happen today, so I agree with you there. I dont see any issue with Cubs though? I'm not sure why you think that is a bad nickname.

Meh. Y’all like to use the term loosely. Like when you start crying that a syrup you’ve been eating for 20 years is now somehow racist because somebody dug up some random garbage and then I respond well that’s pretty stupid and youre like “wHoS tHe SnOwFlAkE nOw”. Yea, still you.
