Yeah, I saw this story yesterday.  Sadly, they’re pretty unapologetic about it too.
“When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”

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.
