The Lounge>Listen, people. We need to have a talk about a Chiefs name change at some point.
Rain Man 11:59 AM 06-29-2020
I think the odds are low of a name change, but given the current state of affairs it's a non-zero possibility. And if we don't have input, the name will end up being some trite adjective in front of the word Hawks, which has happened with pretty much every other sports name change in America. Green Hawks, Fighting Hawks, Screeching Hawks, whatever. We don't want that.

I suspect that some members of Chiefs management read this site occasionally to get our takes on who should be starting at left guard or how they should handle a particular contract, so this is our chance to have input into the process. (Oh, and hi, Clark. Nice work last year, my friend. PM me about getting together for dinner next time you're in Denver.)

So we'll have a renaming tournament. In this thread, you may propose up to three names, and I'll structure everyone's suggestions into heats. Using the Chiefsplanet brain trust, we'll give Clark and his team valuable input into what the Chiefs should become if we eventually delete our homage to indigenous plains cultures.

yeah... Chiefs is really offensive...? why in the hell would they even need to change it? based on what?

nothing.
Just another step in erasing native history. It doesnt have shit to do with it being offensive..which its not in the first place.

you can make the argument that "Redskins" is a offensive name and was a racial slur at one point. If the name Chiefs becomes offensive you might as well do away with mascot names and go with The Kansas City football team.

The Kansas City Tinmen
Motto: "We don't need a fucking heart" or "We have more heart than you..."
After touchdowns could sing "We're gonna RIP the heart out of you, you, you you you"

The Kansas City Arrowheads
Surely this isn't offensive?

The Kansas City Missourians
"Dammit, we're in Missouri not Kansas"

The Kansas City Flying Monkeys
"They're always hanging around"

I hope they never change the name but if they do I always thought the Kansas City Knights would be ok. Lots of cool logo potential. It's kind of arena football-ish. I'm sure there are better...and worse ideas out there.

its pretty much like getting upset at the term "retard... you can turn any term negative if you want.

indians used the term on themselves.
go back to calling themselves the Braves, I wouldnt mind that. But a drastic change to please pc propaganda? fuck that

Before the Indian Removal Act (1830) there were seven tribes in Missouri:

The Chickasaw tribe.
The Illini tribe.
The Ioway tribe.
The Otoe tribe.
The Missouria tribe.
The Osage tribe.
The Quapaw tribe.

i will only accept a change to one of these names

On the Washington Football Team’s website, the organization stood by its usage of the name and mascot stating, “the image of ‘Chief Two Guns White Calf’ was most admired [and that is how the logo officially became the brand we know today]. The likeness is not of a mascot, but rather a logo based after a real person out of respect for the Native American.” Conversations about the use of American Indian imagery or culture continues to be debated today. There are professional teams, college teams, and schools that are implementing rules to abolish these mascots.
