I understand that Native Americans get upset with pro sports naming their teams "Redskins, Indians and Braves", even the Utah team calling themselves the Jazz because they were originally from New Orleans. But the thing I can't understand is why that team didn't change their names to the Utah Mormons, at least until they changed the above.

I mean, the Utah Jazz? How about The Utah Men Out There Playing Basketball?
