    Know of any lifelong baseball fans of that Ohio Major League team who are okay with the name change?

    Up there with the WORST name in the history of professional sports.

    Don’t worry, it’s temporary. Cleveland Guardians is the name of a long-standing roller derby team, as any quick Google search would have showed. The baseball team is now in violation of a trademark, and will have to backpedal quickly to avoid a lawsuit.

    A local school was protested for using the name “Apaches” until the tribe pointed out that the school had been doing teacher & student exchanges with the reservation since its founding.

    I’ve no great admiration for the name “Guardians,” but everyone except the professional grumps will cease to miss “Indians” soon enough. Teams change their names all the time for many reasons, and this reason is better than many.

    The Cleveland Guardians are a Roller Derby team. The Baseball team should have checked to see if the name was already taken

    I always thought they did honor to the name, but I am only part Native American.

    The NFL’s former Washington Redskins are now the Washington Football Team, but every time I see that abbreviated WFT, my brain wants to switch the last 2 letters around. I doubt that I’ll have the same problem thinking of CG as referring to the Coast Guard.

    Too close to prison guards. Imagine the offence to so many…

    Guardians isn’t going to fly either, they just found out that a men’s roller derby team holds the trademark on the Cleveland Guardians name and web domain
