The one who can point out the transgressions of one person while overlooking the same transgressions of another is whose intelligence (or lack of) is showing.

Default Spiders? Yech

I think Guardians is just fine.

Why the hell would a team want to name itself the Spiders? It sounds ridiculous on the face of it, plus did you ever take a look at the Cleveland Spiders' record in 1899, their last year - 20-134, plus a nasty multiple-ownership scandal? - That's what you want to celebrate? Just because it's from the era we like to collect doesn't mean it's a good name, or good karma.

Taking potshots at a team's new name is about the easiest and most pointless activity I can think of. Go collect some cards, why dontcha.

Misanthropically,

Tim

Don't you people complaining about "cancel culture" have anything important to worry about?

How is their new logo not a trademark copyright infringement of the Los Angeles Angels?!?

That's one of the first things I noticed too. Whether or not it is a trademark infringement, it certainly is remarkably similar. Might want to rethink it before all the gear gets mass produced, although come to think of it, I like it more than I do the Angels logo.

Can anyone name one good thing you can’t do anymore? People are obsessed with calling out cancel culture but what have you lost in anything that’s happened? That is a sincere question. What is lost by changing the name of a baseball team that clearly mocked its source? What is lost in monuments to Confederate traitors? What’s lost in respecting people’s identities? I truly am curious as to what it is you feel is so important to hold onto in any of these modern changes?

It isn't just Confederate statues that have been torn down. When the statue toppling craze was at its height, statues of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas came tumbling down. Lincoln's sin was that he supposedly wasn't good to Indians. I'm not sure what the rationale was behind Frederick Douglas.

Probably not.

Cancel culture and it's younger cousin, critical race theory, are just the leading contenders for the moral panic du jour.

FWIW, here is a picture of one of the Guardians my wife took on our annual trip back to Ohio a few years ago.

I don't know if it's the statue you're referring to but the Lincoln issue I'm aware of had to do with a statue depicting a kneeling slave before him. I think there might be a better way to convey the same historical impact.

I also heard about a Frederick Douglas statue that was removed in Rochester but it's removal was an act of vandalism. Again, not sure that's the story you're referring to.

No imagination whatsoever.

Who was it that determined modern logos have to be so bland? I thought the new LA Rams logo was horrendous, but this one gives it a run for the money.

Gee I sure hope they produce a Guardian vest with logo, made of Kevlar.

Might make it safer to attend the games.

FWIW, here is a picture of one of the Guardians my wife took on our annual trip back to Ohio a few years ago.

Was just driving over the bridge today. It is a great, old bridge, and the sculptures are wonderful (there are 4 of these posts/columns in total on the bridge) and it literally takes you right to the front entrance of Progressive Field, as you can see from the stadium in the background. Nice photo. The name sucks though. Don't know of anyone in Cleveland happy with the new name. I would expect to see people still coming to the park wearing Indians gear and even Chief Wahoo images despite the name change. Will be interesting to see if they try to ban people from coming into the ballpark with such at some point. I believe that they still sell Chief Wahoo items in the team gift shops yet, despite doing away with the logo on uniforms and caps worn by players or displayed around the stadium back in 2018. If they are truly going to abandon the name and image, they should do so. But it seems they are still going to maintain and keep the copyrights on those and keep making money off the name and images as long as they can. Hypocrisy and greed as usual. If they truly were so behind the changes in the name and images as a show of respect for native Americans, shouldn't they simply disassociate themselves from both the name and image entirely, and not continue to make money off them?

In college I had to read a book titled "Lincoln Reconsidered". A very interesting read and insight into Lincoln's thinking and true nature. Would have been very interesting to see how history would have turned out had Lincoln not been assassinated. By Booth and his fellow Confederate associates doing so, they basically fired up the abolitionists and anti-Southerners in the Norther states, and in the government, and gave them more than enough ammunition to push forward their more extreme anti-Southern views and legislation, and possibly change how the ex-slaves were to be treated. If I remember correctly, it seemed that Lincoln was going to push for sending the freed ex-slaves (and any already free blacks living in the Northern states) back to Africa. Believe he already had support in Congress to do so, and money set aside to assist with re-colonization of freed slaves to Liberia I believe. His assassination ended that possibility though. Also seem to remember that his Emancipation Proclamation was not entirely about just freeing the slaves, but was really more of a warning and punishment to the Southern states that if they didn't stop their rebellion, he would declare the slaves free so the Southern states couldn't continue to keep them as slave labor.

Much like Bob Byrd, Forrest denounced racism later in life.

Should I get rid of my Manny rookie and get the one in a high school uniform or the one in street clothes?

I lost it with this movement when San Francisco changed the name of a school previously named after Abraham Lincoln, because of his role in the 1837 Black Hawk War.

Speaking of Black Hawks, COME ON Chicago. How about the Chicago Loop or something.

As someone who has never been to Cleveland I wasnít sure what to make of the new name, wondering why the team was now named after an English newspaper.

But then it was explained the name comes from some statues on a bridge (pictured in comments above). Are these famous landmarks in Cleveland that all the locals know about? If so, it seems like a good choice for a name.

But as I said earlier, you can't reason with stupidly. But I guess the jackass hasn't read your post yet, otherwise he would call it "disingenuous BS" as he did mine.

The tribes basically told him to f--k off and made it stick. The tribes are probably the most powerful political constituency in Oklahoma behind the oil and gas industry. So, throwing a little charity their way under the assumption they'll be grateful for your largesse may fail spectacularly.

Funny (now) story. My wife is an Ohio girl and while I am not originally from there, it is where my family lives now. A number of years ago, on a visit, I (without even thinking) bought an Indians ballcap with the Chief Wahoo logo on it. When I got back home (without even thinking) I wore it out in public, I got a lot of dirty looks. Needless to say, the hat was relegated to yardwork duty and, within a year, was in the trash.

As for the name, I love it. Cleveland is a great town and the Guardians of Transportation are a significant local landmark. They are part of the Hope Memorial Bridge which connects the Ohio City neighborhood to downtown. The ballpark sits at the east end of the bridge. My wife and I were back there a few weekends ago for a wedding. As is our habit, we went to Ohio City for lunch and a visit to the Market Garden microbrewery (which uses a Guardian in their corporate logo.) There was a little art fair going on in a plaza across 25th Street from the West Side Market and there was a lot of Guardian inspired artwork on display. I even bought this t-shirt:



It really made me realize how much the Guardians of Transportation are part of Clevelands identity.
Good point Jeff, I was just thinking that there are some native American people, or charities for them, that would likely appreciate getting a piece of the action. Those groups doing well probably don't care as much though, but I can't believe that all native American groups are doing that well that they wouldn't like a little extra income.

Usually the actual protesting of the Indians name is done basically by maybe a dozen or so people that show up outside the stadium on opening day every year, and then seem to be pretty much done for the rest of the year. So the bulk of the complaining and protesting is really coming from people online and out of town who aren't actually in Cleveland as far as I can tell, or are even fans of the team or otherwise attending games. It seems to be a small minority of the native Americans who are actually upset about the name Indians.

Anyway, was downtown today and had lunch over at Heck's which is in Ohio City across the bridge from the stadium, and stopped in the West Side Market afterwards to pick up some pad thai chicken. Great place to shop. Interesting note, Heck's restaurant is in the Ohio City neighborhood of Cleveland, and is three or four doors down from the house where John Heisman was born and raised.

Not really that I ever heard of. Did see some online stuff about emailing suggestions and such to the team, but if I remember correctly, there was some caveat that in so doing that you had to give up the right to that name and only allow the team to copyright and use it. The team was first and foremost out to make sure they, and they alone, controlled whatever name they ended up selecting so as to maximize and control whatever profit they could make out of the new name and logo. All the while still selling Indians and Chief Wahoo gear for right now. You watch, the team will maintain the Indians and Chief Wahoo copyrights for now, in case they can still profit off it somehow. Meanwhile, their probable public excuse for keeping them is to say they don't want anyone just taking them over and to start producing items that will be disrespectful to native Americans.

There are another couple of names I thought might be good ones. Cleveland used to have a popular hockey team called the Barons, in the AHL, and for a while had the Crusaders in the NHL. Since neither team is with us any longer, both of names should have been available. Either of those rolls off the tongue better than the Guardians. And you could probably resurrect some version of the old logos as well. And if you used the Crusaders, that kind of goes along with the Cleveland State University Vikings and the Cleveland Cavaliers as having a somewhat similar medieval group represented by the name.

I like the "Barons" Bob, rolls off the tongue nicely. Could also be a nice interlocking "CB" logo ala "NY" Yankees. The problem with 3 syllable team names is most of them don't roll off the tongue well. The Indians and Buccaneers being two exceptions to that rule that come to mind.

Yeah, we know of them them, but they aren't all that famous. Don't forget this is the town that has "A Tower that is Terminal, overlooking a Lake that is Erie!" It is the "Mistake on the Lake", and we also have the (in)famous burning Cuyahoga River. Which was famously immortalized in song by Randy Newman.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0zG5aux9zs

In fact, the Cuyahoga River is just across the street and down the hill from the stadium, and Cleveland is in Cuyahoga County and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park is just a few miles south of the stadium as well. Doesn't roll off the tongue as well, but could have called them the Cleveland Cuyahogans. A somewhat unique name, and since it is a mixture of names that different native American tribes called the river, it has a tie to the old team name of the Indians, while not directly offending anyone (at least no one I can think of). We already have the best state rock-n-roll song in the world that gets played during 7th inning or late inning stretches (Hang On Sloopy), as well as Ian Hunter's anthem (Cleveland Rocks) to play after victories. We also have favorite sons like Drew Carey and Bob Hope (whose Father the Hope Memorial Bridge is actually named for) Oh, and Bob Hope was actually an owner of the Indians back in the 60s and appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated's June 3, 1963 cover in an Indians uniform, with Chief Wahoo prominently displayed.

https://www.si.com/extra-mustard/201...pid=will-smith

And who can forget "Hot In Cleveland", or the Rock-N-Roll HOF and Museum on the lakefront, or "The Christmas Story" house and museum in the Tremont section of town. And of course you can also see the old League Park and museum on Cleveland's near East side, which was built originally in 1891 and was where the Cleveland Spiders, and later the Naps and Indians actually played. It is also the site of the first de facto All-Star game on July 24, 1911 when the Naps played a team of assembled All-Stars in an exhibition game for the benefit of Addie Joss' widow and family. That is the game where Cobb didn't have his Tiger's uniform and borrowed a Cleveland uniform to play in.

https://www.ozy.com/the-new-and-the-...ar-game/77109/

And eventually the Negro League team the Cleveland Buckeyes played at League Park as well. Maybe another good name they could have chosen for the team if not for The Ohio State University probably having a stranglehold on that copyright.

Peter,

If you think those are that bad, go back to what Chief Wahoo looked like in the 40s when they last won a World Series.

Makes sense. And here are what some of the old logos looked like.

https://www.bing.com/images/search?q...mageBasicHover

I especially like the very first one of the big letter "B" with the top hat sitting on top of it and cocked slightly to the side, with the hockey stick running through it. Just replace the hockey stick with a baseball bat and you have a winner. Also like the large "C" with with a picture of the state of Ohio in the middle of it with a "B" superimposed on the state. That would look really great on a uniform. And the character with the monocle and top hat is kind of neat as well. Just replace the hockey uniform with a baseball uniform and you have a great mascot as well. And you could try to entice an actual Baron from England to show up for a promotion or something maybe. LOL

But hey, we can all feel great now that a baseball team in Cleveland has changed from their terribly offensive name "Indians" to the "Guardians."
What a joke.
I hope that I don't offend anyone by saying this: I'm offended that you are offended

Itís actually quite relevant of a logo if you know that the statues of the Guardians have that same winged design on their helmets. But why would people know that, itís not like it isnít readily available information on the web. Letís just be lazy and say itís stupid.

Iím not a Cleveland fan and have never been there but it took all of 15 seconds to educate myself.

Bob Byrd never massacred Black Union Soldiers as they were trying to surrender. They are not equivalent. You are a moron.

Forrest joined the Ku Klux Klan in 1867 (two years after its founding) and was elected its first Grand Wizard. The group was a loose collection of local factions throughout the former Confederacy that used violence and the threat of violence to maintain white control over the newly enfranchised former slaves. The Klan, with Forrest at the lead, suppressed voting rights of blacks in the South through violence and intimidation during the elections of 1868.

In 1869, Forrest expressed disillusionment with the lack of discipline in the white supremacist terrorist group across the South and issued a letter ordering the dissolution of the Ku Klux Klan as well as the destruction of its costumes; he then withdrew from the organization. In the last years of his life, Forrest insisted he had never been a member and made a public speech in favor of racial harmony.

Much like Bob Byrd, Forrest denounced racism later in life.
Look. This discussion has nothing to do with the thread. It started because vintagetoppsguy tried to disparage Biden, who I am no fan of BTW, by showing a picture of him with Robert Byrd and suggesting that that was worse than having a bust honoring Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest. Never mind that Robert Byrd served in the Senate for 51 years and was minority leader at the time, obviously someone Biden was obligated to work with. Never mind that Byrd joined the KKK as a youth but later called it the biggest mistake of his life and renounced racism and segregation. Never mind that Forrest was not just a member of the KKK but its Grand Wizard. Never mind that Forrest massacred Black Union soldiers at Fort Pillow as they tried to surrender. Never mind that the false equivalency could not be more obvious. The level of evil displayed by Forrest is in no way comparable to Robert Byrd. Not equivalent at all. For pointing this out, I was called stupid and a jackass. How ridiculous. I am done. This has nothing to do with Cleveland adopting new name.

And you are not God. You don't get to decide which sins are forgiven and which are not, you ignorant jackass.

Iíll never understand why people bother getting into these kinds of arguments. Nobody ever thinks theyíre wrong. Everybody thinks theyíre right. Nobody is going to change anyoneís mind.

If anything it just makes people look insecure and unstable.
