WTF does any of that have to do with a chickenhawk tail on the helmet of a school with a chickenhawk mascot and no Native American affiliation of any kind?

In that situation, you tell any complainers to shut the #%!@ up because we have just as much right to use the imagery of our animal mascot as the 90% of schools that currently do the same exact thing with their animal mascots. There is no material difference between this idea and Oregon's use of duck feathers on their ugly ass uniforms.

o NEW: Hate to tell you but the W&M had to drop the Tribe too due to similar pc crap and are now the Griffin. Feathers still are no dice even though the Griffin has feathers. (nm)

o NEW: Uhh, did you not see the example you used above? W&M had to drop the tribe and feathers ala utah and the utes. New W&M mascot is a griffin which has nothing to do w/ native americans and yet feathers still arent allowed as accents to unis or logos'

o NEW: You showed W&M old logo and I passed on info how their transition from "un-pc" to "pc" went. If we have lost support of the Ute Tribe then we are in a very similar situation. (long)

o NEW: I do agree that it makes no sense, but for what ever reason the powers that be felt like that was using a loop hole. Dumb, but that was how it played out there. (nm)

FountainofUte icon NEW: i like the "Red-Tails." i could live with that if Utes must go. i also agree that i dont want "Hawks" in the name at all. (nm)

TheBaron icon NEW: The Utah Redtails with the fanned tail of a red-tailed hawk on our helmet wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.
