The Cleveland Indians will stop using their Chief Wahoo logo on game jerseys and caps starting in 2019, according to The Associated Press. The decision has the support of the MLB, which has urged the team to decrease its use of the logo in recent years.
Notably, the logo won’t be going away entirely. The ban extends only to on-field displays, meaning Chief Wahoo will still be a fixture on merchandise that’s available throughout northern Ohio.

Well, hopefully they replace him with a drunken leprechaun.
i honestly do not give this much thought. i have lived just outside of cleveland for 20 years. the only time i ever hear complaints about the logo being racist is online. i never hear people saying anything about it out in the world.

If this continues, I envision a future where all sports teams wear a shade of grey uniform, with no logos, no names, no numbers, and we don't keep score. Not a bright future...if you ask me.
