    Also, it was decided that if we ever did have to become a colour for whatever reason, we would be CW Gold.

    I don't mind this poll - I just mind who votes in it.

    The only opinions of any matter that I can see in the poll have all voted for Colts.
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

    The sort of smug attitude one wouldn't expect from a PA Rep...

    This is a club matter, not a Dev League manner. If you have any issues as to how the Dev League is run or as to how players are treated within the league as a whole, or any other such things that affect league players, I will be hapy to help you. However club issues should be dealt with within the club. Unless you want the Colts players to decide on a new name for the CW Reds.

    EDIT: It should also be noted from a PA Rep perspective that we do have some Asian players in Colts and I for one have no intention on labelling them a 'Yellow' and the thought of people encouraging such a thing is disheartening.

    Have any of the Asian players actively complained to you about their club being called Yellow?
    Or something.

    I've seen numerous complaints from Colts about being labelled 'Yellow'.

    Do we have any american indians? What if they have a problem with reds? Does anyone have a problem with Blacks? Do the aliens complain about greens? And does the ocean complain about blue?

    I've known American Indians to describe themselves as 'Reds'. Likewise, 'Blacks' is not considered to be a racist remark as far as I know and is just as insulting as 'Whites' which I've never considered racist. I don't know if aliens complain about being referred to as 'Greens' but then, I've never known of this to happen. I'm pretty sure the ocean (much like aliens assumably of the extra-terrestrial variety) never complain about what they're labelled as. However, despite all of that...

    Offensive. Of or being a person of Asian origin.
    Slang. Cowardly.

    Believe me, people can take offense from being called black, as it has been used for generations as a derogatory comment. Your argument above for not being called yellow is poor IMO, as stated in another thread, anyone who takes offense from these colours doesn't deserve to be a member of society. I don't mind if you're the Colts or Yellow or the porcupines, but we'll still make fun of you about it.

    The oceans hate being called blue, get with the program.

    Shouldn't it be up to the members of the club itself to choose? And as far as I can see, we all want to be Colts. Don't break a tradition for conformity, guys.

    I think it's mostly just kinda sad that everyone cares so much about this.
