Let's say if Scotland gets invaded by England, and now Scotland is no longer Scotland, but now just part of England. And then the English make a team called the Scots right in Glasgow, England. What do you think the reaction would be?

The white man conquered the red man in a very brutal, some say shameful, way. These logos are a reminder of that.
This is where I disagree. The tasteful names and logos were done as a tribute to Native Americans and their strength and heritage. Not the other way around.
