Video: A Short Documentary on the Infamous Red-Face Chief Wahoo Moment Before Last Year's Home Opener

Our position on Chief Wahoo has been long and well-documented, which is why we welcomed the national firestorm and debate that arose after the meeting between Wahoo supporter and red-face fan Pedro Rodriguez and Native American and longtime AIM face Robert Roche before last year's home opener.

The picture went viral, as did some of our coverage of the event. 

What we have now, thanks to Peter Pattakos at Cleveland Frowns, who was present for the face-to-face meeting last year, is a short 11-minute video on the events surrounding the meeting and a glimpse at how other fans interacted with the protestors. It's not pretty. In fact, Pedro comes off better than just about anyone else.
