Sure, but how is your (Canada's) SJ history?
That's true. It's just a business changing some wording in it's marketing or public relations because it thinks it might make them look better, and there's nothing new or remarkable about that. Which is why I don't consider it particularly significant or a sign of the impending apocalypse. It's interesting enough to me to discuss it here, sure, but I'm not having any kind of a OMG!!! reaction.
Quoting you again to point out there's another NBA team that starts with W. That used to be called the Bullets, that changed it because... Oh, no, I just opened up a whole new can of worms for this thread!
The Washington Copy Machines
Sorry I did not patent the use SJW - you will just have to accept that...or not.....LOL You might want to get A-Bone to help you. He is about the only one who had any luck with me.
I predict the NFL will follow suite.
Good thing I watch neither.
This is so dumb

Imagine being so fragile that a term an organization you’re not a part of decides to use offends you.
It would certainly make it easier to move them from one city to another! Then avoiding the whole Oakland (LA, Las Vegas, ...) situation.
That'll show em. They're raking in billions in record profits year after year. But keep it up; it's bound to make dent one of these years.
They should be referred to as CEOs.
If they own the team, they should be called owners I suppose.
I don't watch sports, so I dunno.
That darn movie forever changed how training is done!
As Winston Zeddemore said in Ghostbusters, and being something I echo on a regular basis, "if there's a steady paycheck in it (especially to the tune of $10 million a year), I'll believe anything you say."
Seems as if the OP intended to generate exactly the type of responses we've seen over 5 pages.
The heart of the matter. A huge amount of time is spent on this endeavor.
I don't think many of them hold that title.
And so are we.
Arguing using dictionary definitions is a fools game. Meanings change over time, and context matters a lot. The owner of a building? Fine. Owner of a person? Not fine.
Any time I see someone trying to argue using the dictionary definition the comment is basically saying "Okay but like, if you ignore the context and go by this one line that a small group of people wrote, it ACTUALLY means..."
Dictionaries are only a snapshot of a language, not a rule for how it has to be used.
