In a world where we are not sure exactly why and who gets offended the Seattle Seahawks have changed their cheerleader team name away from The “Seagals” to accommodate their make dancers. They are now known as “The Seahawks Dancers”.
We are excited to unveil our new dance team for the 2019 season!
For decades the Sea Gals have been an integral part of the @Seahawks organization, as we continually look to evolve our gameday entertainment, our dance program will now be known as "The Seahawks Dancers." pic.twitter.com/1gdStqmQVB

This will make some people angry. And honestly, I, myself, am not necessarily angry about this but more confused. Why is this even a topic? Couldn’t some men be on “The Seagals” and be known as “The SeaGuys”? I mean seems to be an easy fix. I mean the players on the Seattle Seahawks are not actually Hawks. And players on The Chicago Bears aren’t actually Bears. I just think this is unnecessary to be honest. Was anyone actually offended that they were called The Seagals?

This is a true face palm moment. As a season ticket holder I'm really paying for this? I'm as liberal as almost anyone but damn…. pic.twitter.com/lIxRGP8C8a

Lastly the name Seagals is such a good name. I don’t necessarily think anyone was actually offended by the name right? I mean, only in Seattle and only in a 2019 can we have such a pointless name change.
