I think that while there are many people who would like to see the organization eliminate the Indian name entirely, the fact they have at least shown some sensitivity makes them less of a target.

Didn't know that, thanks for the heads up.

I'd like to see a source, since a number of the members of the team appear to be Maori.

You will wait a long, long time.

They couldn't kick their way off a football pitch.

Who said the Maori find it offensive? Unless, of course, you are poking fun at the rampant political correctness on display here.

Re: Patent Office Lowers the Boom

A school in Alberta is dropping the name of its football team. The team was called the Redmen, which is a reference to the uniform colour.

However, school officials said they do not want to run the RISK of offending someONE.

I imagine the Cincinnatti Reds owners are having an emergency meeting right now.

Our Soccer team is called the All-Whites,

Infact all of our sporting teams have the colour embedded in their names,

Silver Ferns, Black Caps, Tall Blacks, etc etc.
