    Fresh off the recent news of select reps from Congress issuing letters to the NFL, Dan Snyder, and others about the removal of the Washington based NFL franchise nicknamed the "Redskins," apparel company New Era seems to have gotten into some hot water. Supposedly they incorrectly assumed that every team's primary logo will be used in MLB's observation of Independence Day in their "Stars and Stripes" hats. In the case of the Cleveland Indians, that assumption was a controversial one for the company. Link to the story is here...http://www.clevescene.com/scene-and...the-most-offensive-cleveland-indians-hat-ever

    I'm a Keller confirmed racist, so I think they are as good as you can expect for an Indians hat.

    Is it wrong that I think that hat is pretty bad ass? I'd wear it.

    Besides the irony of the above hats, these are clearly the most offensive Indians hats ever:

    If there is one thing I hate more than non fans wearing team gear to be "fashionable", it's apparel lines catering to that shit...

    Yeah, Chief Wahoo definitely looks better now than he ever did before. However, the stars and stripes all over him is certainly not a good look...

    I am typically in favor of anything that is not politically correct. I hate the current state of affairs where people are always walking around offended.

    Overall, I think the hat is pretty ugly. I like the regular Chief Wahoo hat, the block C, or the 70's angled C that were worn with the blood red uniforms.

    I like Chief Wahoo, but the stars and stripes version is ugly.

    The block C one they showed in the article is pretty sharp, though.
