    changing the logo from a First Nations image to an actual black bird could suffice; that one's easy to solve.

    Evidently the current Seminoles have no issue with Florida State's usage -- I just wish they, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Atlanta Braves would ditch the damn "tomahawk chop" chant. Loved Chipper Jones but I was so glad to see the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Braves' asses in last year's playoffs so the SF Giants fans wouldn't be subjected to that crap. If the entire fan bases of those three teams developed carpal tunnel syndrome from doing "the chant", it would merely be karma.

      ...complicated than it might at first appear. While perhaps the majority of the Seminole Tribe of Florida supports the use of the name, many of us do not. But we've never held an actual tribal vote on the subject. If we did, I would vote against.

      Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
