Marquette changed from "Warriors" to "Golden Eagles". Should all patriots be offended because they are demeaning a cousin of our national bird?

Should all farmers be offended by the Nebraska "Cornhuskers"? Especially the way they have that mascot bounce around on the field?

Where is PETA, with all the rodents in the Big Ten and other loveable critters (Ducks, Beavers, Tigers, Buffaloes, Cougars...) that must also be victims of this crime?

If selecting a name is demeaning to the group you have selected, why doesn't any team use names like "Nazis", "Terrorists", "Murderers", "Rapists", "Pedophiles", or "Cowards"? Seems like that would be a great way to furhter insult all these later groups that deserve our disdain.
