.. yup, just more woke / cancel culture / pandering from yet another "professional" sports team that caved .............................. maybe if they win the big one the owners can take a knee with the current potato in chief.  The name was never meant to be derogatory towards native americans and I bet 99% of them would agree, it is NOTHING more than polictical pressure (see relocation of all-star game if you need additional proof).

Yes, it was a business decision.............. based on political pressure BS!!!

Whatever the motives, the owners weighed the pros and cons and they made their decision based upon that. They did exactly what they felt was in the best interests of the business.

Bottom line...... they caved!! I live in western PA, but I have a ton of friends, relatives, and acquaintances that live in the Cleveland area, and I listen to the eastern Ohio radio stations regularly. I travel into Ohio regularly for visits, shopping, and concerts. I will be amazed if the people readily accept this change. It's going to be very interesting and entertaining to see the reaction to this decision.

One just has to follow the money trail on that decision! :o


Correct. Making money is what businesses do. (Or, at least they attempt to). That's their whole purpose.

Thanks Robert SS440-80 for the well thought response. You show us that there is more to the subject than there was yesterday and that the door is open for tomorrow.

Read this the other day....

Here’s are some interesting facts:
 
The lifespan of an electric battery is 10 years and is not renewable. By 2050 these batteries will fill landfills with 50 million pounds of waste that does not break down.
I wonder if people would still believe in electric power cars, vehicles or equipment if they knew how massive the carbon emissions footprint really was?

On this my thought is this landfill estimate is based on what we know today. What we don't know is how we'll operate between now and 2050. But the carbon footprint is what it's all about to begin with so hopefully smart people will continue to do what they do, and solve the issue that is coming our way.

canam2025. Without having time to go through each link, I'll assume that the info contained within all points to the path that reflects my thought above. There are some really smart people behind the scenes in every scenario in life and these people will continue to hack away at the issues before them. These would be the kind of nerds I'd like to listen to around a campfire or belly-up'd at my favorite beer garden.

My wife is part Native American (Cherokee Nation). She, nor her relatives, gives a rat's *ss about the former name of the Cleveland ball team or any other team/product...... present or past, with a reference to her heritage.

Yes, it was a business decision.............. based on political pressure BS!!!

Here’s are some interesting facts:
Total fuel consumption of U.S. airlines is approximately 19 billion gallons annually.
Total fuel consumption for mining Ore for construction of electric car batteries is approximately 21 billion gallons annually.
The 21 billion gallons of fuel burned can only produce enough Ore to build 250,000 electric car batteries.
The lifespan of an electric battery is 10 years and is not renewable. By 2050 these batteries will fill landfills with 50 million pounds of waste that does not break down.

your still swinging and not hitting, tesla top technical officer looked at that problem and he left tesla to do so.
Jeffrey Brian Straubel is an American businessman. J.B. spent 15 years at Tesla, as co-founder and chief technical officer until moving to an advisory role in July 2019.

  And Graphene-enhanced batteries are almost here.
Graphene-based batteries have exciting potential and while they are not yet fully commercially available yet, R&D is intensive and will hopefully yield results in the future. Companies all over the world (including Samsung, Huawei, and others) are developing different types of graphene-enhanced batteries, some of which are now entering the market. The main applications are in electric vehicles and mobile devices.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZyfnwkS6t4 just wish there was a better illustration. once this is cheap enough and commercial viable look out.

Some batteries use graphene in peripheral ways - not in the battery chemistry. For example in 2016, Huawei unveiled a new graphene-enhanced Li-Ion battery that uses graphene to remain functional at higher temperature (60° degrees as opposed to the existing 50° limit) and offer a double the operation time. Graphene is used in this battery for better heat dissipation, the companies

There you go making sense again. I had pretty much that same conversation a couple weeks ago with an EV loving co-worker who never thinks about stuff like you mentioned.
