I can relate. My high school had an offensive mascot too.

Fight the real enemy!

I’ve never heard “the Redmen” being used except here by Jason. I’m only aware of the nickname “the Reds” (according to wiki, also exist “Scousers” and “Merseysiders”).

Anyway, next season they should give the trophy directly to Real Madrid and then play the competition normaly.

^ and let Ramos do whatever he wants to opponents before kick off - so it’s a little fairer for the actual game itself 😉

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?

C’mon the Redmen!

Most of us don’t use that term in the US anymore lol.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._John's_Red_Storm

Prior to the 1994–95 school year, the university’s nickname was the St. John’s Redmen, which referenced the red uniforms worn by its teams in competition. The name was interpreted as a Native American reference in the 1960s, and the university did have a mascot (adorned in Native American dress), which eventually led to the team’s name change to the Red Storm. The change happened at a time when there was mounting pressure on colleges and universities to adopt names more sensitive to Native American culture.

I don’t think Liverpool players are going to be no longer be referred to as Redmen (the colour of the kit they’ve worn for over 100 years) by their fans due to an interpretation in the US on an insensitive term referring to Native Americans used in a completely different context.

I don’t what that means - in the future it may be better to explain it in words instead of an image-only post? Thanks.

 


 

On a separate note that’s the season over - though the pre-World Cup friendlies start very soon - as well as the World Cup itself on the 14th June 😃

Maybe Frink’s humor works in the US but not in the UK (not in France as well I would add 😃).

It means everything you said was obvious. Ric Olie = Captain Obvious.

I was just mentioning the connotation in my country. It was obvious it had nothing to do with yours.

So… like your other posts in here, it was nothing to do with footy then. Right.

Seems you have the quite the knack for taking threads off-topic / derailing them.

It was tangentially related for one thing, it’s not like it came out of nowhere and it’s not like I posted something completely unrelated to anything that was said here.

Also I thought this part of the forum was going to see some relaxed moderation after the other part was split off? Or not, I guess.

I already reported it, was told there’s nothing there to report. It’s fine.

No, you weren’t.

I asked you two questions - both of which you declined to answer - and part of your reply was ‘…it doesn’t really matter’.

After Anchorhead posted, you posted again as part of your reply ‘…like I said it really doesn’t matter’.

You’d do well not to put words into the mouths of the mods - nor twist what has actually been said. I don’t know what sort of game you’re trying to play here, Frink - but enough is enough.

No, it wasn’t. In this thread alone you have made 7 recent posts and none of them has been about footy. You continue to take the thread off topic and derail it further.

You then post an unrelated link as if to try and hammer home some sort of ‘point’, and then bring up that this part of the forum was going to see some relaxed moderation after the other part was split-off… well that is the plan and that is what is happening… though that doesn’t mean members can go into threads and derail them and taking off topic in this section of the site, or any other for that matter.

This, and on top of your earlier admission today that you derailed a thread in the General Star Wars Discussion, I’m of the opinion you are willfully trolling, baiting and wumming.

I strongly suggest you give some serious thought to your posting style on here - and make some changes to it, as well as giving some consideration to the other members here and their threads that you’re actions have on. You’re very close to some time away from this site.

 

Now, back on topic…

By the way, if I’m not mistake, is this the first time ever that a city is going to get all titles the same year ? (at least the 3 european cups)

C1: Real Madrid
C3: Atletico Madrid
UEFA Super Cup: Real or Atletico

Club’s world cup: Real probably…

^ not one for the footballing purist that Super Cup game 😉

(Marseille vs Liverpool would have made for a better spectacle 😃)

The new football seasons start soon - it’s like football never stops 😉

(Though for the US and South American leagues it has continued as usual throughout the Summer/World Cup)

Should be intriguing to see who ends up where after the transfer markets close, which clubs have strengthened - or taken gambles, and who’ll be the surprise upcoming teams this season…

As usual, I’ll be rooting for the underdogs throughout (Liverpool apart of course - who’ll hopefully continue to move in the right direction - and maybe win some silverware 😃)

Good luck to the new MLS teams - and for those franchises to come - seems footy is kicking on in the US (awful & lazy pun intended)…

ah ha! So the team with the offensive name that you referenced in a debate about the Washington NFL team was either your highschool or college team.

Well thanks for dredging that discussion up again. Didn’t you see the part where I got yelled at?

It was more of a quiet word - no worries mate, though Warbler somehow missed the request to get back on topic.

G! O! - O! N! I! O! N! S!, or something 😉
 

Smart ground Philadelphia has, good to see the MLS evolving and it’s clubs having their own purpose-built stadiums - ‘B’ teams and leagues for upcoming players (at a substantial discount on ticket prices) - with some clubs featuring strong community links too.

Am quite intrigued to see how hosting the 2026 World Cup will have on soccer in the US (and Mexico & Canada too).

oops! Sorry. I somehow missed the posts where things got heated and Frink was warned. Please forget I said anything about that and back to topic.
