Eskimos name change?

Yes, it's all about 'inclusiveness' these days. The mayor of Winnipeg ought to mind his own business instead of using his position to influence professional sports, imho. If he actually respected the Edmonton Eskimos he would have made his suggestion in a private letter, rather than grandstanding in the name of inclusiveness which seems to be the word of the year. Interesting to note that the name Blue Bombers was a rip off of a nickname for Joe Louis, the Brown Bomber. Can we admit that sports teams are not out to make any sort of political statement and move along to more important issues? In Alaska, the term Eskimo is still in use. Anyway....
