Dartmouth Indian Punter Trying Out With Steelers

We at TDR have heard that Dartmouth's own All-American punter, Brian Scullin, is trying out with the Pittsburgh Steelers. If he makes it, he'll be the second Dartmouth graduate in the NFL alongside current Tenessee Titans fullback Casey Cramer (Jay Fiedler last played pro ball in 2005). We wish him the best and hope he makes the squad. Go Indians!

I just hope Coach Tomlin has some other options. Mitch Berger sucked last year, but not quite as much as the Dartmouth football team did.

Sterling, we aren't called the "Indians" anymore.

I thought he was a football punter, not an Indian punter.

Says who?

Someone apparently hasn't read the Review at all.

Of course, the bigger question is why you felt the need to put quotes around Indians.

You mean like around "football".

Quotes are used to distinguish the West vs East Indies.

The term that's used, ladies and gentlemen who do not know, is "Native Americans." I believe that is to whom Sterling referred. If he was not aware, "India" is a country in its own right; the second largest...

Intelligent people of all backgrounds forgive the Review's simple recalcitrance.

No humans are native to the Americas; everyone immigrated here, just at differing times.

Why is "Indian" not an accepted name yet "Native American" is? Vespucci was from Italy; what affinity is there for using his first name?

Perhaps the politically-correct on these pages should themselves start using "Original Peoples", though Adam and Eve and perhaps those from Africa might object to this.

Native, as in, they were the first civilization here...

Silly white supremacist jingoes!

I was not questioning your use of "Native" but of "Americans". Duh!
