I bought an Indians pennant in 1988 when I attended my very first American League game with my cousins from Akron. Guess what's going up on the wall in my classroom this fall? :D

Not sure why they didn't rename the team, the Cleveland "Engines". :D

Pathetic choice for a name. Not even sure what is so insulting about the term Indians. The was nothing of any derogatory intent about the word, although Chief Wahoo had to go (and did!).

Who is next?
Pirates -glorifying murderers and plunderers?
Rangers - Indigenous People killers?
Chiefs - the term sound more like an accolade, but none of this makes sense any way.
Padres -too religious?
Reds -despite the current socialist leanings, no one wants to infer communism! (oh-they already did that in the "RedLegs" days)
Brewers - promoting alcoholism?
Yankees - constant reminder of the Civil War?

I'm beginning to hate this game and it's "business".

Actually, IMHO, Guardians works for Cleveland. Apparently there are Guardian statues all over Cleveland that are meant to protect and keep watch for the city. I was confused also until this was pointed out to me. JMHO. 8-) 8-) 8-)

Guardian sounds close to Indian.
