Chief Wahoo Dies A Slow Death In Cleveland
Chief Wahoo was created in 1947 and has stood the test of time, but that will end in 2018. The character which has been associated with the Cleveland Indians will be phase out. In 2019 there will no longer be a Chief Wahoo logo on uniforms or around the stadium. MLB Baseball has been pushing for this and finally they were able to get it done. I understand both sides, but I really see no harm in keeping Chief Wahoo. The reality is if you wanted to you could find something wrong with every kind of logo if you wanted. Native Americans are offended by it and I understand that, but we cannot eliminate eveything in life if one group or another are offended by something.
I would guess Chief Wahoo will still be sold at the Team Shop or online. I cannot see the Indians losing the amount of money the logo generates for them. I read somewhere where it does bring in millions for the Indians. Do not look for the Indians to get rid of that cash cow anytime soon.
