         The MLB commisssioner as well as the NFL commissioner should issue an edict that each and every major league team should come up with a new name for their Team that no longer included then name nickname or anything related to American Indians. That should  include names such as  ‘The Braves’ The Tribe “as well as The Indians” Its beyond politicaly correctness at this juncture in time & its just down right not nice…Also  included should be the name ”Padres” what if a team was named ”Rabbis’ I personally wittnessed Olympic Skaters  proforming outfits using Holocaust  prisoners uniforms as custume themes . What if a team was using such names as The N.Y. Jews  or       The Philadelphia Italians we would see the folly in the names right away .I feel it high time for a time for a change..I think originally when the names came to be  no bias, perjarative or ill will was intended …but this is today & and a fund should be set up by the Commissioners office to pay for any & all costs that may be incured when a perspective team changes it’s name due to this ruling. Bottom line…. ITS GOT TO GO !
