Jousting horses for Chargers is not a good clue either. They definitely have lightning bolts on their helmets.

Haha. Chargers are military horses though. The name, Charger, has absolutely nothing to do with lightning. As a long time Charger fan we all know how weird it is that we have lightning on our helmets, but we just go with it!

The Chargers aren't actually named for anything. Owner just heard fans yelling charge and he was like cool let's go with that.

An even more interesting perspective from that author's Native American father-in-law, who says that the author completely misrepresented what he said and refused to correct the record: http://deadspin.com/rick-reillys-american-indian-father-in-law-says-reilly-1443599450

"Politically incorrect." Um, you mean "Racist."

Please with the racism remark. Seminoles, Indians, Blackhawks...those names were all meant to be just as racist as Redskins was intended to be - not at all. This nonsense has to stop somewhere. There are real issues out there in the world that need to be changed, folks...this isn't one of them. Please. Just. Stop.

Blackhawks were named after Black Hawk an indigenous leader in Illinois, Seminoles is the actual name of the people who lived in Florida. Redskins is a racial slur for those people. Get your facts straight.

If it really isn't a problem then I suggest the next teams should be named the New York Netanyahus, the Maryland Muslims, and the Texas Tacos. We wouldn't want to leave anyone out.

I'm no fan of the Patriots, but to say they win by cheating is just ridiculous. The b.s. with the videotaping and the deflated balls was so minor and had very little effect on them winning games. In all their super bowls, they've never been found guilty of cheating. In fact their last win over the Falcons was the biggest comeback in SB history.

That was a little tongue in cheek, responding to 'They don't cheat, they win', though saying that it 'had very little effect on them winning games' does sound like you agreeing that they were cheating, even if you only think it was in a minor way

I hate it when people call lions "The Kings of the Jungle." They live in the savannah. Tigers are the true kings of the jungle, therefore the Bengals should be the answer.

It's based on the percentages of people who took the quiz and how well they did. Since apparently a lot of people who took the quiz did very well, it turns out you need a perfect score to be in a high enough percentile for all 5 points.

"Jousting horses" is a horrible clue. Also, simply saying "politically incorrect" is a misleading clue. Try "politically incorrect name" or something.
