LetGoDU received this email via the grapevine.
"As of January 1, 2012, the University of North Dakota will no longer use either the Fighting Sioux nickname or logo.
As of that date, please only refer to our athletic teams as the University of North Dakota and please use the interlocking ND logo as the official logo of the UND Athletics Department."
I assume that we can continue to refer to them as "goons"
In a show of solidarity with our fellow oppressed mascot and NCHC brethren, I think this blog should continue to support the Fighting Sioux and use its logo as often as possible. For the record, I hate Sioux hockey but this is outside of hockey.
Beat me, torture me, make me listen to Anne Murray recordings, they're always going to be the Sioux for me. And the ATF is going to have to storm my house like they did Mount Carmel to get me to stop. On the other hand, "goons" also works.
Okay, "Prairie Chickens" it is ... I don't make the rules.
Hey, we have a spare chicken that we would be more than happy to give them.
I absolutely hate North Dakota but there's no reason why their mascot should be viewed as offensive. They'll always be the "Fighting Sioux" in my book. What are they going to do about the Sioux logos in their hockey arena?
Replace them with swasticas, if Ralph Englestad had any say in the matter.
The jealousy continues.....
Ralph had most of the logos in the Arena chiseled in stone or granite. He made comments when building the Arena about not changing the name and wanted to make his statement about it.
Jealousy? Jealous of living in Grand Forks? Nope, Denver far superior. Jealous of your 7 national championships? Nope, we've got 7 too. Jealous of your zero national championships in the last decade? Nope, we've got 2.
What are you doing trolling here anyways? You might want to get help your obsession.
How about we call them...... "LOSERS"? Uh, then again... it may be hard to distinguish them from Colorado College....
what do you think they will change the name to?
I vote for Fighting Indigenous People
What a clusterf$!* of a logo. Guess that they couldn't use "ND" because Notre Dame would sue them for infringement.
I Agree! That logo needs help. They tried to get cute and North Da Goonas don't know cute.
DG, I can't see how you are obligated to follow the PC police - your headline to this makes it seem like you have to give in to them. ND has great tradition ( I don't care how much we DU hockey fans "hate" them) that we should respect. They are the Fighting Sioux.
