Makes sense once they change the name to "Kansas City Kevin Costners"

Carl Hunt is about the only good thing about Kansas City. I think the Kansas City Carl Hunts

We could call them the CHunts for short.

We could pay homage to the great state. There are more rusted out Trans Ams on blocks in Missouri than any other state... It's like the poor mans fire-bird!

The Kansas City Trans Ams! With a cynder block for a logo!

As a liberal, I would like to apologize on behalf of Amanda Blackhorse. She sounds about as fun as week-old-donuts.

I knew it was going to lead back to this. Agenda-driven naming conventions.

Yes, remove every Native American name from every single street, city, institution, or team in the entire US (unless of course it's on a reservation).

It seems there must be some sort of disrespect for naming something after people who are no longer alive, and no longer live there. Come to think of it, that's pretty much how everything is named in America, so if that's the road you're going to go down you'll pretty much have to rename everything. How utterly stupid.

I'm offended by your post. Please clean it up and re-write it.

Man, when it rains it pours when you're a Chiefs fan. I actually feel kind of sorry for them and not in the typical way.

I get how the Redskins name is offensive.... The Chefs should be the exact opposite.

I think there's a huge difference with naming a team the chiefs and naming it the redskins. Ones a slur, one isnt.

while I concur. I think Chief is a leadership role and not really a slur, though I do know the Chiefs stopped doing the tomahawk chop thing or were instructed to do so at least at games. I do wonder if Braves or Indians will face the same scrutiny. To be honest I do think the Redskins should change their name. Just because it has history doesn't mean it should continue. While I've been against changing literature (They wanted to remove words from Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn and others for instance) because I think those things should remain frozen in time and in the case of Tom Sawyer, he was actually illustrating a point by using blatantly offensive terms, but even if it wasn't I think altering texts printed in different times is censorship and also is just a way to hide history. I don't think this applies to the Redskins. It is time to change.

For the longest time I thought that was a mouse which is equally nonsensical.

Pretty much the difference between, say, the 'The Fighting Irish' and 'The Fighting Micks'.

Just take the "i" out. They already have a fat guy as the head coach. All the red neck fans can just put some duct tape over the "i" on their favorite apparel. Seems simple enough.
