    As a true baseball lover and braves fan this article is RIDICULOUS.

  2. [...] by their atrotious new batting practice caps, Ryan Hill has a take on the Atlanta Braves and their regrettable use of American Indian iconography and how one reconciles being a Braves fan with the existence of that [...]

    If a logo is enough to make you turn your back on your team, you never were a true fan at all. Even worse, you wish one of the buggest traditions in baseball would dissapear? It’s one of the most intimidating home field advantages in baseball. Watching a pitcher coming apart at the seams and rattled as 40,000+ chant/chop as loud as they can while the music blares through the Ted. I get chills thinking about it on Opening Day. Braves Country would be better off without you.

  4. It’s a baseball game and a pretty awesome logo. Your an idiot for writing this blog. Life’s to short to deal with simple minded morons like you that take negativity out of everything. Hey retard maybe its to remind today’s society of the hard times Indians still live in and the Braves are showing support to them. Wow your a moron stay in Texas keep you blogs and opinions there as well!!!

      If you’re going to call someone a “moron,” “idiot,” “retard,” and all that, at least demonstrate you understand the basic grammatical differences between “you’re” and “your” or “to” and “too.”

    No one cares about your bleeding heart. And if you actually have friends who wonder how you can be a Braves fan, I’d look for some new friends. Lighten up. Btw, I’m 1/8 Native American.

    I wholeheartedly agree with this post, and dishearteningly disagree with the ignorant comments that have been posted in response.

    You have a right to feel however you want, but seriously you should try getting over yourself…

  10. That was an excellent post. It’s a shame that the awful and ignorant knee-jerk responses are dominating the comments here. You should be commended not ridiculed. If we were to replace the name and image with offensive imagery of other minorities that have been mistreated I’m pretty sure more people would understand how racist it is. And then again, some of the people who posted a comment above would probably still push back. Racists will be racist after all.
