Cleveland is dropping the Chief.

The Cleveland Indians have agreed to remove the big-toothed, red-faced caricature from their jerseys and caps starting in the 2019 season.

The Indians have used the Chief Wahoo logo since 1947, but Major League Baseball has pressured the team to end its use. The Indians will be allowed to use the logo this year, then remove it from team uniforms in 2019, when Cleveland plays host to the All-Star Game.

What if a team called itself "The Arkansans" and the mascot was a shoeless hick? Would you like that characterization?

The Wahoo mascot is overtly racist.

I personally wouldn't care, but if I was the Indians management I would be happy to have an excuse to change that ugly logo.

Cmon that has got to be the most hideous logo in top tier professional sports.

I love the way the Chief Wahoo logo looks. Always been one of my favorites.

No accounting for taste I guess... ;D

Obviously this is just my (probably unpopular) opinion, but to me it just looks like an inappropriate, weird uncle caricature that they added "Indianness" too.

I think my liking comes from playing on an "Indians" travel team growing up. We used that logo. Brings back old memories.

Fair enough, I always played for the Pirates team in Little League. I still have a fondness for them even though they are a division rival to my cubbies.
