To save you a click, they push to change the name is linked to a desire to sever ties with its colonial past and to better signify the indigenous people of the country.

I don't care what they do. But I hope they change it so I can laugh at people who freak out over something that happens on the other side of the world that has zero impact on their lives. Or some guy living in a trailer in Jasper saying he will never go there in protest.
If all the Kiwis of European descent return to Europe, I'll be impressed.
Otherwise, just watching people try to pronounce that name will be entertaining.

I know you are quoting TV/movies, but mine isn't a quote and it is a thing that actual human people (or idiots) believe. Of course those same people don't think the Moon is real or space is real and the Earth is flat so there is that.
Well, I know otherwise intelligent people who really do believe in astrology and who've gotten offended at my pointing out that it is a rival religion to Christianity, etc. One mentioned constellations on our local neighborhood group and got POed when I said that they existed only in the human brain converting three dimensions into two. I remember one cartoon where a girl asks a guy what constellation he was born under and he replies "dinosaur." She says "That's not a real one." He replies "None of them are"... :)

I can't be the only one who saw the thread title and thought they were going to change the name to New AND IMPROVED now, can I?

I don't care what anyone does, I just hope Mississippi doesn't remove the Rebel flag portion of the state flag to bow to those liberal d-bags......
I want to see Ole Sis change their Mascots half a dozen more times.
My suggestions for new mascots are The Fighting Squirrels, or The Blue Catfish...
