I don't really care for it. I wear the bp hat from the past two seasons everyday and think it is sharp looking. But this new hat will draw a lot of attention, just maybe the wrong type.

I don't care about offending Indians, but I do think it's a pretty awful hat. Solid blue all the way around except for the logo? No.

How is it offensive? I dont see people thinking the Fightin' Irish are offensive, its the same thing.

I find using "Yankees" VERY offensive to those who live in the north. I think they should be forced to change their name to something more appropriate. I'm sure with some time and a few beers I could think of some good names for them...

Tacky & mildly offensive. It's a win-win.

The only one I could find remotely offensive is the Washington Redskins.

Redneck conservatives will always find a way to defend the "good ole days", when casual racism was not only accepted but encouraged.

Get over yourself. I have three coworkers who are Cherokee and live on the nearby reservation, plus I have several more friends who live there as well. Not one of them could give a rats behind about these logos or mascots. One of my coworkers is a big Braves fan himself. The other two are Dodgers and Redsox fans. We talk baseball and other sports everyday. I bet if you took a poll of who thought these logos are offensive, it would be 99% white men and women who think they know what's best for all of us.

"Redneck conservatives"
How original. LOL! Hey, do redneck liberals exist? Maybe oversensitive liberals.

"Hey, do redneck liberals exist?"

i doubt it. liberals are usually well-educated and open-minded. rednecks- not so much.
