Cleveland Indians to drop their mascot

Any suggestions on a new name?

Cleveland Pakistanis



My high school mascot was the Mohican. We just always associated the name with a strong warrior image of the Mohican tribe. The mascot was changed to the Panther 17 years after I graduated.

I never thought the symbol of my school was disrespectful, but then again I’m not Native American so I guess I’m not qualified to judge.

Cleveland Cuyahogas

Cleveland Base Jumpers

Cleveland Indians but the Indians from India.

Cleveland Rocks


I love the museum but “ya dumb as a rock.”

Hard pass.

Not bad, but you could phrase it better.

Cleveland Indians uhh no from India

What did the local Mohican tribe say?

There are tribes like the Seminole and the Ute that want the mascot to raise awareness.

Cleveland Firsts

I wanna claim that the ‘Vancouver Canucks’ is racist. Also Montreal Canadiens.

Seriously, I can see ditching the mascot, but the name seems fairly innocuous- Florida Seminoles?
New York Yankees? the Knicks?
The Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL have dropped the name (they should just drop the CFL)

You’re talking of a sports team or a programmers group? :smiley:

I don’t know, it’s just supposed to be a fun thing for everyone, so get another name for your funball team. The Squirrels, or Trees, or Pogo Sticks, or whatever.

Cleveland Browns!


All joking aside, I actually like this one.


That’s another programmers club.
