The only sport I still follow & watch & pay tix for is Hockey mostly due to time. But, other things also, but mostly no time. I do follow Yanks, Giants playoffs only, never much cared for the MBA. If the Rangers change the name, they & hockey LOST me forever. The 1 thing this Chinese Virus taught me I'm totally fine w/o sports as a matter of fact more free time, more $ in the savings acc to spend on other things, etc...

I understand and support the need for change to the old racist ways and of white privilage, but changing the name of the NY Rangers goes a little too far. Yes, the Texas Rangers of the 1800's are partly responsible for the genocide of thousands of native americans, and mostly supported the confederacy during the civil war, so if you want to change the name of the Texas Rangers, so be it. We are Tex's Rangers, and I would bet that 999 out of 1,000 people have no idea of the history behind the name. We are the NY Rangers. Leave it alone for christ's sake.

Please elaborate on the Old Racist ways and the White Privilege ..

Texas Rangers honor the Texas Rangers.....

The New York Rangers is just a play on words.... they're NOT the Texas Rangers.... they (were) Tex's Rangers.... The Rangers of New York..... They're different. We're a different breed. Tex's Rangers don't do what The Texas Rangers do....

I could see changing the name of the Texas Rangers.... nothing is going to happen to our Rangers.... everyone relax....

ej17 & Steady Eddie, actually please don't elaborate. This was not to start a political conversation. For now I do agree with robstone, we drop this for now. I read the article & reacted to it, probably should have waited to post until such a conversation takes place for the NY Rangers.

When do the book burnings begin? Hopefully not until the Fall when I can use the warmth.

Out of respect to everyone, I will not elaborate here. If you care to discuss, take it to a new thread in the Junk Yard. I would be happy to elaborate there.

Pffffffffttt, overreaction to one guy's column. This isn't a big deal. No one who actually matters is calling for the Rangers to change their name anymore than they are demanding blackface comedy bits get deleted. They're asking for more substantial change, not cosmetic. Doesn't surprise me that link is a Fox News column meant to drum up outrage. It's straw man bull****. Nothing more.

I'm all for the destruction of confederate monuments, it was idiotic that they were put up to begin with. I'm also okay with us finally acknowledging that Christopher Columbus was a monster who really didn't "discover" anything. Also, it's long overdue that the Washington Redskins change their name. It's horribly racist, always has been, and to say otherwise is stupid. Not to mention it's a terrible, terrible name for a team, and in our nation's capital FFS. Chief Wahoo was also a ridiculous racist caricature, and while I don't think Indians, Braves, or Blackhawks are anywhere near as offensive, I'm guessing we will eventually see those names phased out. I'm neutral on that particular subject. I'd be kinda sad to see the Blackhawks change their look to be honest, that's a great uniform. But there won't be a groundswell to change the name of the Rangers, Texas or New York. The origin of the NY Rangers name is pretty innocuous anyway, they just happened to name them that because the owner at the time was called "Tex."

If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, but I seriously doubt protestors have the time or energy to waste on something as silly as this. There are more important issues at hand.

After the election... like it always does... And it will keep happening during every election cycle until the blacks recognize they are being used. (if ever)
