I'm happy about it.
I always kinda thought it was a slap in the face to Native Americans.
Come in, take land, wipe out almost an entire race, then name a team, representing the capitol of the nation who tried to exterminate them, in their "honer?" To me, that's a little offensive.
Then again, I'm not Native American.
James Francis "Jim" Thorpe (Sac and Fox (Sauk): Wa-Tho-Huk, translated as "Bright Path"; May 28, 1888 – March 28, 1953) was an American athlete of both Native American and European ancestry. Considered one of the most versatile athletes of modern sports, he won Olympic gold medals for the 1912 pentathlon and decathlon, played American football (collegiate and professional), and also played professional baseball and basketball.
From 1920 to 1921, Thorpe was nominally the first president of the American Professional Football Association (APFA), which would become the National Football League (NFL) in 1922.
