I don't find it offensive in anyway. My husband and I just had this convo about 2 hours ago. I am of Cherokee heritage, and I don't find any of those things offensive. I find it ridiculous this is even an issue. You know what's going to happen of this goes through? Bye bye Chiefs, see ya Fl State Noles, a ridiculous PC domino effect.

I don't care.

Do whatever the owner wants.

Boycott them or not to make a money difference.

No, it is not. It is offensive to a handful of people IN that group, NOT, by any stretch of the imagination, the ENTIRE group.
