    The Cleveland Browns were named after Paul Brown, their founder.

    Correct. Remembered that after I wrote it. Named for their Coach, and then the mascott chosen in relation to the name.

    Which is still kind of ridiculous as the name of a football team

    Good thing they went to the dog

    LOL.

    Yea? Well I throw a red card of BS to you on your claim. For example, why don't you run your "No PC Police" fantasy by the good folks at Mozilla who fired Brendan Eich for exercising his rights as a US Citizen

    they tried the same thing in 1996 and a judge threw it out then just like they will throw it out now. this is about the 4th or 5th time that someone has tried to do this and they have all failed each and every time.

    this just goes to show how far out of whack that America has come.

    To me, the most important detail in this latest round is the Government deciding to rule by whim, rather than by law. If the government doesn't like you, they can remove you. That should alarm everyone.

    Because it is not a term that is used.

    When wasa the last time you Heard somebody, anybody, refer to an Indian as a redskin?

    So, we can name a team the San Fransico Coolies in honor of the Chinese immigrants who arrived there in the 19th century?
