Love for the Seminoles

I have to fully support our governor (Jeb!) and the Florida State Seminoles on this one. The 'Noles are by far one of the least offensive Native-American mascots. I can see going after the Cleveland Indians or the Washington Redskins... but a mascot that the tribe itself supports?! Come on! Anyway... I'm all for the Fighting Whities!

Sweet - I knew we would get you on our side finally with this one! Do you have enough love for the Seminoles to give us Chris Leak and a couple of cornerbacks? Just an idea.
Seriously, I thought that the 'Noles were insulated against this kind of thing because they have the tribe's explicit approval. I was very surprised to see the article!

I was too. Some mascots, the Cleveland Indians logo comes to mind, can clearly be viewed as offensive, but just using a tribes name and likeness? How about the Fighting Irish? That seems more offensive to me than the Seminoles. How about the Druken Gamblin' Noles. Now that's offensive!
