Gund? As in the stuffed animal company?

Gund, as in Gordon Gund, the former Cavs owner.

OK, that makes a lot more sense. Although the other Gund could have some fun promotion nights!

Why didn't they just go back to the 20's logo? Clean it up a little and you have a nice classy throwback logo.

The Cleveland Sideways Fallopian Tubes just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Another group is planning a lawsuit against the Chief Wahoo logo for the Cleveland Indians.  Unlike Snyder though, Cleveland was already in the process of phasing out the logo in favor of a red block letter C.   I think they realize it was coming and they most likely won't be making as big a stink about it.  Fans, maybe a bit though.  But that's to be expected.

I live in the Cleveland area and not a single person I've spoken too think this is a good idea. Crazy.

Native American Group Plans Federal Lawsuit Against Cleveland Indians Logo, Team Name

“We’re going to be asking for $9 billion and we’re basing it on a hundred years of disparity, racism, exploitation and profiteering,” Roche told WEWS-TV. “It’s been offensive since day one. We are not mascots. My children are not mascots. We are people.”
...
In Cleveland, local supporters of the Indians team say it is just a tiny minority of people who are against the team name and logo.

“If just a small amount of people are against it, than I think you’re doing a disservice to people that like it,” Bob Rosen, president of the Wahoo Club, tells WEWS. He added that thousands of Indians fans embrace Chief Wahoo as a loyal and friendly symbol.

“I’m not insensitive to the issue, but our 1,650 members of the Wahoo Club, anytime we have a Wahoo Club item they but it up they love it,” Rosen said. “Can you imagine the baseball team in this city not being called the Cleveland Indians? I can’t picture that.”

I love the appeal to the majority, as if that's a valid reason. retard

Yeah, having it called something like the Lake Shores, Bluebirds, Broncos, or Naps would just be weird.

You know that R will get replaced with a C in a ton of other places outside Cleveland...especially Pittsburgh.

maybe the owner should keep the name but change the logo.

a picture of a sun-burned geek might work.

or maybe this

Or a rainbow over the logo....
