The Lounge>They are coming for The Chop
Hammock Parties 02:45 PM 10-09-2019
From our cold, dead hands. Our fanbase will start chops on their own if they have to. We don't need music.

The Atlanta Braves will not pass out foam tomahawks at today's game and will "reduce the Tomahawk Chop" after complaints by a Cardinals player claiming the tradition is offensive - WSBTV

Even if you buy into cancel culture, I don't see how the chop would be on the non-PC side or insulting, seems like the opposite and it's actually paying homage to Native American culture.

The Indians logo and Redskins name I can actually see the argument against.

Those foam tomahawks are made in China, so it should be all good, right?

Wokeness ends where Chinese money begins.

The chop would be a lot cooler if the idiots in the crowd could do it in unison. Looks pathetic on TV tbh

Nobody has to do anything. You have a right to be offended. I have a right not to give a shit and keep on keeping on.

Personally, I don't care at all about the National Anthem thing. No fucks. National Anthem is the time for me to go get another beer or take a shit before the game. But should you really be protesting while on the clock? Probably should do that on your own time.

I'll do the chop now and then, but if it goes I won't miss it. More because it's an FSU chant than anything else.
Why does it matter if an indigenous group of people WERE subject of genocide or not when the entire idea to begin with was to champion their culture? Nobody named the team the Chiefs or Indians to mock them. They did it because they respected it. Why would you name your team after something you didn't like or respect?

It doesn't matter what you feel you are doing, it only matters if it upsets someone... and can they raise enough noise to shame you into quitting or hurt your revenue enough, forcing you to stop.

Hold it! The OK sign is racist???????
