Shocker: Some Braves Fans Like Possible New BP Cap

Before the new year came around and after we had decided that maybe the Mayans were wrong about this whole “world ending” thing, Paul Lukas of released what could be the new BP caps for MLB teams in 2013. For a sample, here’s the Giants version and his commentary:

A lot of the commentary on this has been shared by well known journalists on social media and in articles already, and I’m in the group that opposes this (and for the record, yes, I oppose “The Chop,” non-Native American approved team names and logos of the Redskins, Indians, etc.). The Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Dave O’ Brien had a piece on the cap in his first article of the year, where he says he likes it, but if there is a wide outcry for change, he could get on board with that, too. I like that he asks for the opinion of the people, and since he one of the better known Braves writers, he gets a pretty good number on the readership count as well. He posed the question of what people think of the BP caps. The results will probably not surprise you (**small sample size of Atlanta fanbase warning**):

I don’t mean that I’m surprised in any sort of political way, but even DOB says he realizes the people that read him will probably agree with his stance, as well. It probably doesn’t surprise Braves fans that a Giants fan is writing about this, but whatever. Although maybe it surprises some that I’m not a NY liberal:
