Rick Reily wrote a decent piece recently about not changing the name, and the main thing I agree with him on is that it shouldn't be "white" people who are upset over the use of the name and that appears to be the main backers of a change of the name. Seems like more Native Americans have more issue with chiefs fans dressing up and the tomahawk chop.
I hate chiefs fans.
The Eagles-Chiefs game in Philly was interesting. They kept going to a Chiefs bar in Philly, and those drunken a-holes were doing the warchant and tomahawk chop...nothing screams racism like white people going woowoowoo and chopping their arms in the air.
