Baseball columnist for USA Today, Bob Nightengale refuses to use the Atlanta Brave’s name when covering the club because he claims it is offensive to Native Americans.


“While I can’t stop the tomahawk chop or make Atlanta change its name, what I can do is not acknowledge the nickname,” longtime baseball writer Bob Nightengale wrote in a column published on Wednesday. “In recent years, I have tried to avoid using Atlanta’s nickname in columns. I find it offensive, and after talking and listening to Native American leaders, friends and associates, it only fortifies my belief.”
