    It’s sad that it takes money to compel change. Right and wrong should be the deciding factor. Nobody is surprised...

    Belairdirect could be another "Get woke, go broke" candidate and lose customers (see Gillette, Nike) over this. The Eskimos organization has now stated that they will go through another consultation process and go from there. I like the idea of consulting the people who are the name instead of being cowed by the offended by nearly everything mob. I think they will end up keeping their name.

    I think the Washington Redskins need to change that name as do the Cleveland Indians. Atlanta Braves? Is Braves a slur or does it have negative connotations? If it does, then it should probably be changed.

    Solid choice but if and when the Eskimos change it will start with "E".

    the Double-E logo is far more known and iconic then even the name. The team has been marketing a "One Empire" campaign for a few seasons now so the Edmonton Empire is most likely coming.
