But Hartlepool are not culturally appropriating, as tasteless as it is, they did actually hang a monkey. If the Chiefs were actually founded by native americans people wouldnt be commenting on their name.If The Chiefs have got to change their name branding, what about Hartlepool? In the PC world nothing could be more abusive than 'The Monkey Hangers' surely? What the hell is the world coming to?
Is anyone aware of that? I can honestly say that before they went for their big rebrand I don't know anyone or have ever heard of anyone referring to them as 'Chiefs'.There's a board meeting today at the Chiefs to discuss rebranding. Apparently, the nickname dates back to the 1930's.
The Exeter Chiefs board will meet on Wednesday to discuss a rebranding that could see the Premiership club lose their Native American badge and mascotwww.theguardian.com
