    ‘Forbes’ Sports Writer Triggered by Braves Fans ‘Chopping and Chanting’

    Moore celebrated the fact that every team in sports “not named the Washington Redskins” has already dumped their “offending Native American” names, except for the Atlanta Braves. To Moore, the Braves are still embarrassing themselves with “a ballpark full of mostly white fans” performing the tomahawk chop chant. And he wants “someone” to “stop Atlanta Braves fans from chopping and chanting.”

    One of the greatest experiences as a young boy growing up in Atlanta was going to a Braves game. Thousands of little boys carried their wooden tomahawks and some even sported war paint. We adored Cheif Noc-a-homa
    who "Before each home game, would do a dance on the pitcher’s mound and then head out to left field where he would watch the game from a tepee set on a platform in the bleachers. When a Braves player homered, he’d set off smoke signals and come out of the tepee to do a celebration dance."

    Chief Noc-A-Homa still a Braves legend


    Growing up in Atlanta as a boy, we were proud to be young Braves. We loved our team and our tomahawk chop. This political correctness BS has gone too far. This guy Moore is a loon. I'm 60 now and to my wife's eternal embarrassment, I still yell my war chant for my Braves.

    Turn this up loud.
    Get out of your chairs and join me in a war dance.

    Mr. Moore, this chant is for you:
