I asked this once too

Because the "I" in their script looks like a "J," and the second j is just based on the old "Injuns" pronunciation. Plus we pretty much **** up all the names of the teams we really hate.

He's also ignoring the potential for Cub-fan-esque apostrophe catastrophes - and we don't tolerate such doofusicity 'round these parts!
Nosireebob we don't!

http://mlb.imageg.net/graphics/product_images/p717117reg.jpgTrue that. But it only makes them the Jndians, not the Jndjans. Because the second "I" actually looks like an "I."

Don't try to read too much into it. It is what it is. Go with it.I'm for either spelling (misspelling?) but I prefer Jndians. However, it's hard to believe that they aren't getting major heat about changing their name or getting rid of that totally offensive caricature.

Or the Racist Toons - that's more apt.
