Chief Wahoo logo removed from Cleveland uniforms but still sold in gift shop

Tuesday 14:31 GMT

Ontario activist still wants to proceed with Cleveland Indians complaint, despite team dropping logo. National criticism and scrutiny about the Indians’ allegiance to Chief Wahoo grew in 2016, when the Indians made the World Series and Manfred expressed his desire to have the team eradicate the symbol.

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said in January that Cleveland’s owner, Paul Dolan, was aware of “fans who have a longstanding attachment to the logo and its place in the history of the team.” “Nonetheless, the club ultimately agreed with my position that the logo is no longer appropriate for on-field use in Major League Baseball,” Manfred said at the time.

Tuesday 14:31 GMT

The New Orleans Saints made it nine wins in a row in their seemingly relentless march towards the Super Bowl by inflicting a record 48-7 defeat on the Philadelphia Eagles, the reigning champions.

The Saints are looking one of the most likely sides to replace the Eagles as Super Bowl champions as they topped 40 points for the sixth time in 10 games - another NFL record.

Tuesday 14:31 GMT

The Washington Redskins will be without quarterback Alex Smith for the foreseeable future after Smith's gruesome leg injury in Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans -- but don't expect Colin Kaepernick to come running through the tunnel to replace him.

Though Chad Ryan, who hosts and produces a Redskins-centric podcast, noted Kaepernick and current Washington quarterbacks coach Kevin O’Connell had worked together in the past, and Kaepernick and current Redskins backup Colt McCoy have also worked together, team president Bruce Allen reportedly made clear Kaepernick will never be signed by Washington as long as he's with the team.
