  In reply to: Is it time to drop the "Irish" nickname?  posted by ndoldtown

We live in the 21st Century. We are beyond using offensive slurs about the shanty Irish as our team's mascot. The potato famine happened a long time ago. Let's get over that.

I disagree with your suggestion about "The Crusaders." That is too religious. It might offend non-Christians. We don't want to do that. I suggest we follow Stanford and rename our disgusting "Fighting Irish" to "Green."

The University of Notre Dame Green. Much better. Only ignorant assclowns would want to keep "The Fighting Irish."
