CLEVELAND: The Indians are asking some fans for their opinions on the team’s “Chief Wahoo” logo.
As part of their annual postseason survey to gauge fan satisfaction, the team is asking fans for feedback on a variety of topics including in-game experience, uniforms and Cleveland’s smiling Indians logo, a caricature some of have labeled offensive. In the survey, fans are asked to give their stance on five statements regarding the logo. The survey asks for similar responses — on a standard, five-choice scale — on the team’s “Block C” and “Script Indians logo.”
The Indians have no immediate plans to change any of their logos.
And although not connected, the Indians’ review of their fans’ attitudes about the logos comes as the Washington Redskins are being pressured to change their nickname.
