There are a lot of us automobile enthusiasts who have brand preferences but generally enjoy the hobby without feeling the need to be a one brand fanboy. I'm a Ford guy who used to post over at FIN but prefer to post here because I don't only hear the same fanboy Ford can do no wrong bull****. Nothing makes me laugh more than brand loyalists with their panties so far up their ass over a negative perspective about their precious brand.



I'm a Vikings fan and the site I post at regularly invites next weeks opponent's fans to join the conversation. Overgrown children would tell them to go away, adults don't need to live in a bubble.

Conversations are more interesting, and more educational when you get outside perspectives instead of living in an insane echo chamber.
To each his own. I'll continue to follow GM thank you. I have zero interest in what the competition is doing.

Have a nice day

To me they will continue to be called the Redskins to actually honor the native American Blackfeet tribe member who created the name and logo back when this country wasn't controlled by perception obsessed morons!
Here is some actual facts on the logo and its origins and it is completely DUMB to cancel it!

Washington’s logo has been an Indian chief since 1971. It was designed by Native American Walter “Blackie” Wetzel to depict a member of the Blackfeet tribe.

Wetzel grew up on the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana and was eventually elected president of the National Congress of American Indians in Washington, D.C.

He was instrumental in the Redskins franchise logo change from an “R” to the current depiction of a Native American.

According to Wetzel’s son, Lance, the logo is not offensive, but rather evokes a sense of pride.

“Everyone was pretty upset (about the change),” Lance Wetzel said. “Everyone understood the name change we were all on board with that. Once they weren’t going to use the logo, it was hard. It takes away from the Native Americans. When I see that logo, I take pride in it. You look at the depiction of the Redskins logo and it’s of a true Native American. I always felt it was representing my people. That’s not gone”

The Redskins logo is a picture of John “Two Guns” White Calf, a Blackfeet Chief who also appears on the Buffalo Nickel.

There are and always will be. Not all of us live on WokePlanet. More like JokePlanet.

Amen to that. This cancel culture is right out of the Soviet Union and rewriting history. Hey, let's tear down another statue. Let's move an 80 ton rock because it's raysis. I don't endorse living by insanity rules.
