Tom Bauerle (Monday Afternoon) says the Bills may be next for a name change

Recommended Posts

Listening to the windbag live right now. He's saying the Buffalo Bills may be up next to change their name.

 

Rationale: They are named after Buffalo Bill Cody who murdered many Native Americans.

 

I hope the Bills don't change their name.

 

(it's 930 AM, or WBEN on radio.com)

Absolutely baseless assertion to simply rile up his listeners with a Slippery Slope fallacy.

I don’t see it getting to that point. Washington was a bit of an extreme. The Atlanta Braves aren’t changing their name as an example.
 

If they do, so be it. I have a lot of stuff that will be obsolete (including the shirt that I have on now). As long as the “Buffalo” part doesn’t change I’ll manage. I don’t think that it’ll happen though.

I was under the impression that the old AAFC team, The Bisons, changed their name to the Buffalo Bills because of the popularity of a barbershop quartet of the same name. They did use the Buffalo Bills Cody mascot for a few seasons, but long ago dropped that association.

I suspect there are a few things working in the bills favor-

 

small market

not particularly activist market

not many knowing bill cody 

 

but with things like statue removal stretching pretty far, it’s not impossible

This is the same guy who is convinced there are people in invisibility cloaking devices filming him from his back yard.

 

No joke

In a society where people can always find a way to be offended, and we encourage it, I would be surprised

 

Also, how does he define “murdered” Indians?

The Bills don't need a nickname. 

 

Are they the only team that uses the city as their mascot?

 

If they do switch, they should switch the Bisons and the Bills should be become the Bisons.  It would require zero change.

I don't believe Buffalo Bill Cody murdered many native Americans

 

he was a civil war soldier, and created Buffalo Bill's wild West show which had natives in prominent roles

Need to change the name of the city too.   'Cultural appropriation' and all.....
