Not surprised. They’ve been phasing it out over the last few years. I guess Cleveland getting the All-Star Game in 2019 sealed it.

Oh look the left is trying to purge any references or tributes to native American culture. This won't stop until native culture is banished from all of America and made verbotten to anyone not in the reservation camps. I get sick of seeing what little tributes to my ancestors are being systematically purged by the left crying "racism! Your not 100% native therefore you cannot enjoy it".

We should be promoting people to engage and enjoy native culture not making native culture verbotten.

not racist, but that's how the nut jobs are. I don't find it offensive, but that's just me. just another part where politics shouldn't play in sports event, takes away from it. could make or break a fan as well. oh well, farewell history you were fun while it lasted.

A red dude smiling with a feather is not offensive.

I suppose by your logic this is offensive, racist, and should be removed: https://youtu.be/M_tMD5bTbLM

I love their tribute to America and so do fellow Americans. Even people who dont watch or like anime love this.

Are you scared? Why is the right so paranoid and prone to conspiracy theories.

Don't be offended, I mean the right in general. They are so defensive.

Are you native american? If not you have zero say in the matter

I am and I find it offensive it's not native American culture in the least bit and to call it such is height of racist ignorance

Why not just change it to this

Most of the comments make me cringe. The logo looks dumb, and more appropriate for little elementary kids. The knee-jerking is also foolish.

I've got opposing family members burried miles apart who died in the same battle. My native side were proud warriors who would be completely unconcerned with this nonsense. They dont need a bunch of snowflakes melting down crying for them.

You shame your ancestors then. Be strong and proud of who you are and of your people just like they were. Not a snowflake. Oh and dont let a bunch of foreigners invade your lands, kick them out early.

Why not start a new team instead of replacing a tribute to natives with a tribute to Caucasians? And the left accuses the right of white washing. Also... HAHAHAHA I love that image! I want it to be a real thing now. Its too good not to be!

I heard from my little nephew one of the Goa'uld System Lords is in the Trump Administration, but for some reason I remain skeptical. I do love that show, however, and the Goa'uld creep me out. Recently I had a nightmare they came, undressed me, and put one in the back of my neck. I awoke in a start, sweaty, my nightgown clinging to my body. True story.
