So are they going to stop selling their team's tall-shaming merchandise?

Came here to suggest as much. Or with Atlanta. But of course those are very notable exceptions....

I find skinny jeans on men offensive to my eyes.

I find ironically worn flannel and workshirts offensive to those who wear them for their actual work.

Wonder what the Giants would say to that?

Or the;
Yankees (derogatory term for Northerner's)
Padres (promotes Christianity)
Angels (insults non-believers)
Marlins (calls to mind sportfishing, which is insulting to animal rights activists)
Rangers (promotes a police state AND Texas was illegally annexed by the US)
White/Red Sox (promotes one color over others)
Royals (promotes subjugation of one class over another)

Fark you San Francisco and Fark anybody that thinks this is a good idea.....

"SF has widely varying temperatures throughout a day and people like having clothing they can easily take off when the sun comes out"?

You just HAVE to insist upon being the overly sensitive butthole, don't you, Frisco? It is the constitutional right of each and every American to offend and be offended regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, and/or sexual ideaology, and if that bunches up your panties, maybe you should take them off and go commando.

I'm sure that's not much of an issue in SF....

Wouldn't really tall people be offended by the word Giants?

You mean short-shaming? Bragging about Giant would be implying the alternative was bad...right?

That's how I see it, but then it would be logically consistent to say that a team called the Redskins was offensive to everybody but Native Americans.
So, I'll defer to popular opinion and say that the Giants are offensive to Vertical Americans.

Some Indians got offended at a white dude who wore a headdress. Maybe the white dude should have gotten offended back if the Indian guys traveled in a vehicle with wheels.

someone in San Francisco got offended by the actions of someone else...no way!!!

As a great lumbering hulk of low intellectual capacity, I am offended by the Giants, and the portrayal of great lumbering hulks having low intellectual capacity in popular media.

And all those stories about grinding up englishmen.

Seriously, grind up one cockney bastard to make my bread, and they make it sound like that's all we do.

I'm pretty sure the Cardinals were named after their colors, aka "cardinal red". That STL had (has still?) a large Catholic population is just a coincidence.

The new rule stems from an incident a few weeks ago when two Native American fans told a Caucasian fan (who later claimed Choctaw heritage) to remove an Indian headdress that he was wearing during "Native American Heritage Night."

C'mon, Frisco. Ban the guy for being a giant douchebag loser, and leave it at that.

If they banned everybody in SF that is a giant douchebag loser, the stadium would be empty

They're in a city called St. Louis, which is a double whammy. It references catholicism and royalty.

Not quite, the difference between SF Giants fans and most other wankers is that the crowd at AT&T park is made of giant douchebag winners. Old money, tech money, and trust fund kids.
