Yeah, I saw this story yesterday.  Sadly, they’re pretty unapologetic about it too.

How stupid and embarrassing.  And supremely unfunny.

When in college, pretty common to see black students name their intramural team the N Word spelled backwards.  I wonder if that is still done today without notice or comment. Obviously would never fly (nor should it) if white players did it.

Disgusting and revolting. Says a lot about parents, coaching and the league itself for letting this go on for so long.

How does somebody see that and not immediately stop it? PG-13 team names is one thing. Racial slurs are quite another.
