CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Indians want to know what you think, about the team, the players, the stadium experience, the uniforms, the logos including the block “C”, script Indians and oh yes Chief Wahoo.
It is the fact that they’re gathering opinions on Wahoo, the red faced smiling Indian logo in a year when the pressure has never been higher for the Washington Redskins to drop their name and logo with even President Obama weighing in that has caught the attention of fans.
“It's been with the city for so many years, it's part of the city, it's part of the heritage,” said Henry Baker of Cleveland.
William Embry agreed. "I don't think there's going to be no problem for the Indians, because the Indians have been the Indians for too long."
The concern among Indians fans loyal to their name and Chief Wahoo logo is that if and when the pressure mounts great enough for the Washington Redskins to relent and change their name, teams like the Indians or Atlanta Braves will be next.
“I think that's probably how it will go,” said Indians fan Mike Parsons. “Sooner or later I think they will come after them."
