The Rugby Union side based in Exeter have been known as the Exeter Chiefs for many years. They have now been forced to drop 'Chiefs' and their supporters banned from wearing the American Indian Head Dress. I am not too sure who they offended but once again the woke brigade have won and another tradition has ended. Long live freedom of expression!!

They used to have the most recognisable name and logo, now they are the soulless "Washington Football Team"! Was any native American offended by them? Sheer Vandalism.
Seriously, who gives a damn what an American Football team does? Has no impact on me, so they can do what they please.

I'm guessing you were struggling to find something new to get outraged over Tora.

Similarly, the day when they stopped us chanting "Y*d Army" at Spurs was a dark one in my book.

From the link within your link;

"But political correctness is a strange thing - often a straw man for those who would prefer the comfort of the old ways to the difficulty of changing their minds."
Tora- //...first they came for the.........etc//

Oh do get some perspective. That verse is about guilt and persecution, a football team who voluntarily agreed to change their name to avoid offending the indigenous people of America is hardly in the same league.

The more you accept the ‘take offence’ statement, the more will be demanded from you.
lol, first they came for the American footballers, then they came for the English Mensa members.
Jno- //lol, first they came for the American footballers, then they came for the English Mensa members//

Well, that's Tora safe on two counts then ;-)
foo ! yeah
no he is second in line
he is a member of mensa

yep, bang on gramps, BA.
Gramps, is this the team you are referring to? I see the word 'chiefs' several times on the home page and an imagie of a Native Indian man wearing a traditional headdress

I find this sort of thing really sad. Common sense should dictate that no team would name itself after something it didn’t admire.

I wish, instead of casting their sour eye over everything and banning anything that doesn’t appeal to their own miserable nature, the PC brigade could see it for the accolade it truly was. I call them ‘Dementors’ - you know, the creatures in the Harry Potter books who suck all the joy out of life.

By the way, I wish people here would stop claiming that anyone who has a moan is automatically 'outraged'. People can be a bit miffed without being 'outraged'.

No they haven't. They still have their name and their American Indian logo. The only thing they dropped was their mascot.

As for "another tradition" blah blah blah, they changed their name to the Chiefs in 1999. Hardly a tradition.
Good idea Tora, give BA to someone spouting factually incorrect information.

Seems appropriate.

So we won't be seeing you on the next 'black American shot by white copy' thread, Mozz?
Cop


On phone and it doesn't do as I tell it.
roy, are you seriously comparing the shooting of a man to a rugby team's name and logo?
