    That's what the dissenting judge's objection was. He said they presented no evidence of it.

    This was a ruling by emotion - nothing more, nothing less.

    I hope Snyder sues the pants off someone.

    Is that what you are worried about, that the team is profiting off of the name and image?

    It always comes back to money.

    That's what I got out of that too.

    Actually, changing their name will be the worst thing that could happen to Americas Indians. Take away this little cause, and the few people that pretend to give a **** about them won't even have that.

    So the minority should decide everything now?

    You want a country kind of like, Oh I don't know, Syria.

    So, offensive words are ok, sometimes?

    Or shall we continue to move the goal post again, this time beyond simple "whose a minority/majority"
    The Washington ****s has a nice ring to it.

    Women hold a minority status sociologically because of the history of their treatment. We actually documented in our Constitution the evidence of our social misogyny. Even today, we see that they do not represent their demographics in elected office and on average they earn less money than men do for the same job.

    Here's the trademark info
    AdSlogans.com -- Wise Words/10
    I'm fairly well versed on trademark rules.

    I'm just not too thrilled in government by Whim.

    But I know what the letters mean and it includes an unacceptable word, so yes I am offended. You are not?

    You can be offended. But you can't pretend that it is exactly the same as when a minority is marginalized.
