I think it's really hard to prove that Chief Wahoo is a damaging figure. The team does not encourage discrimination in any way. No individuals are harmed when looking at the logo. Sure, people might have hurt feelings or not like the logo, but that isn't enough "damage" to cause change. The team doesn't even have a mascot that looks like Chief Wahoo.
Also I don't think the fans have a better alternative. The alternative, the capital I, is terribly boring and has next to 0 personality. The majority of people just aren't offended by this logo and that's probably the bottom line. I'm not sure I like the idea of changing everything that a minority doesn't like. Democracy is based on the majority's decision.
I'm not sorry if I have offended fans of the capital I.
