Chief Wahoo will no longer serve as the mascot on the uniforms of the Cleveland Indians players, according to multiple reports.

This move really shouldn’t surprise anybody. There is an all out attempt to wash anything that might be viewed as insensitive from sports. People have been pushing for the Redskins to change their mascot for years, but owner Dan Snyder has pretty much flipped the bird to all his critics.

Personally, I think the mascots issue is a bit ridiculous, especially when you consider that 90 percent of Native Americans don’t care and aren’t offended. Of course, it’s probably easier to just change things then have to deal with the MLB breathing down your neck. It’s still stupid and lame. Hopefully this trend of going after mascots come to an end soon and is never brought up again.
