I was wondering when this was coming.

From ESPN, via Mediate:

After it was announced that the Cleveland Indians’ controversial Chief Wahoo logo would be taken off team uniforms by next year, ESPN personality Max Kellerman said Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish mascot should be the next problematic symbol on the chopping block.

The First Take host argued that even if only some Irish-Americans are “offended” by the team’s name, their feelings should be respected and the storied Fighting Irish name should dropped for good.

We may assume that “The Quiet Man” will have to be banned along with “Gone With The Wind.”

John Ford’s classic, after all, depicts fighting — and drinking — Irish.
