SCOTUS decision wrt Tribe feathers
A question for you legal beavers. Could this decision provide basis for the return of the feathers? Maybe even The Indians? This could be the 'something big' for Ms Huge!

I'm FAR from an expert, but I believe it doesn't apply. The reason is we did not have a legal challenge to our feathers, we had the NCAA tell us if we had our feathers, we couldn't host championship events, etc.

WM sports in a nutshell - half the fans care more about a pair of idiotic feathers than a competent basketball program (this does not apply to the MANY on this board who work very hard to spur positive change).

No, the fans are not happy that the school folded with the NCAA ... AND ... won't put forth a more competitive men's hoops program ... all part of the same problem ... failure to forge, promote, and protect the school's athletic component.

Capiche?

It was an NCAA ruling, so no.

Is it possible that the NCAA exceeded their bounds? If the Cleveland Indians can use their symbol( a genuine icon), why couldn't we. I understand that this all a pipedream. But it does provide some food for thought. Incidentally, one can cheer for the basketball team and chew gum.

The ruling had to do with whether the government (more specifically the USPTO) could prevent certain type of speech that disparages the members of a racial or ethnic group The Court ruled no because the disparagement clause violates the First Amendment's Free Speech Clause.

The NCAA, a nonprofit association, is not subject to the First Amendment's Free Speech Clause.
