Crybaby Blue Jays scalped, tomahawked, lanced, speared by that team from Cleveland

You lost! You lost, you lost, you lost!

Here is a good reason Canadian team should have been eliminated 4-0.

“Ontario court to consider application to stop Cleveland from wearing ‘offensive’ baseball jerseys in Toronto”

“TORONTO — A prominent indigenous activist and architect is seeking a court ruling that would prevent the Cleveland Indians from wearing their regular jerseys, using their team name and displaying their logo when they play against the Blue Jays in Toronto this week.

“Douglas Cardinal, an officer of the Order of Canada, has filed applications to the Ontario Superior Court, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario and the Canadian Human Rights Commission, arguing that the Cleveland Indians’ team name and mascot — Chief Wahoo, a cartoon man with red skin and a feather in his headband — are offensive and discriminatory.

“His application seeks an injunction against the team, Major League Baseball and Rogers Communications, which is broadcasting the American League Championship Series between the two teams.

“Rogers also owns the Blue Jays and the stadium they play in, the Rogers Centre.

“A hearing will be held Monday on the application at the Superior Court.

“It’s just the latest move in a push against the team’s name, as the United Church of Canada and the United Church of Christ have urged the team to change its name.”
