The NHL also decided to change the name of certain style baseball hats called "sniper" hats (because, you know, in hockey lingo prolific goal scorers are sometimes referred to as 'snipers'). Stupid sniper. Thanks for helping everyone to be oversensitive and offended. Why doesn't anyone get offended by other terms like players 'taking a shot' or 'he shoots' or 'he's a great shooter' or a quarter back being in the 'shotgun' position... I guess it's only a matter of time. Honestly, I can understand the hat name change, but I'm afraid that one day we'll have to just stop communicating because there'll be no way to avoid offense

I'm curious if, in other countries, there are any breakouts of 'political correctness' or efforts to avoid offending people. Sometimes it seems that this stuff only occurs in the U.S.

Since when is it ESPN or Eidos Interactive's job to be the nation's "sensitivity training" teachers?!?

Remember when the evil guy always had a wax moustache and a British accent. We never complained back then about it its nothing personal, why must people get so offended over something.

Unfortunatly because of political correctness you will never see TV shows like monty python or black adder again either
