Dumb question but I'm not sure on this. I ask as I was maybe going to use this in Random Shots.

BYU played Coastal Carolina last week.

There were shirts that said "Mormon vs Mullets".

For Mormons, is that offensive?

And no, there is no "It's just dumb" option.

That's my take.. how would it be offensive to Mormons?   If anything, it would be offensive to the "mullets".. although in my experience, "mullets" don't really get offended.

Yeah, it seems to be more derogatory towards CC fans than BYU.  Although, I guess is we accept the mocking of mullets (which I endorse) then maybe associating Mormons as the other side is offensive?  I voted no as that's what they are, right?

I'm not worried about that. My only question was whether it was offensive for the Mormon side.

Offensive to whom? The Rednecks that are stereotyped as mulleted or the fans of a historically Mormon university being called Mormons. Going to have to err on the side of... you kidding me?

The CC team itself has adopted the mullet hairstyle as a "team identity" kind of thing - lots of the players wear their hair that way.

Yeah - out of all the shocking things to happen in 2020, the return of the mullet is the one I'm most shocked to see.

Offended by term "Mormon" or the generalization that everyone at BYU is Mormon or something else? Or maybe you don't know? Maybe they just expressed offense without saying what was offensive?

If it was on Twitter it could be any of those or a bot or somebody stirring up trouble.  But being offended for no good reason is all the rage now, so who knows.

It’s just dumb, is the answer.

You can’t swing a dead cat on twitter without offending somebody.

This just strikes me as one of the oddest poll questions I have ever read.

:shrug:

I was going to use the Mormons vs Mullets picture from here https://twitter.com/FieldYates/status/1335385696593383427?s=20

First comment was "As someone who lives in Utah, how about neither..."

So I wasn't sure and asked you folks to be a sounding board to see what you thought. 

I've always thought the FFA was great for that. Thanks for the help.

announcer in the soundbyte verifies that no one at BYU is offended by these and they think it's awesome... so you should be good

You're surprised that someone on Twitter was offended? On Twitter, you can find someone being offended by ANYTHING.

Seems like a good question for Jim McMahon.

He's not mormon, he's catholic.  

They made two sets of the Mormons vs Mullets shirts - one each in school colors of both sides.  

I still have my Catholics vs Convicts shirt, I went to the game.

Yeah, I hear you. In general though, I try to err on the side of being careful on these. So I sometimes ask.

I'm blaming you guys if people yell at me. 

In my opinion, this would be my go to for just about anything. Those idiots @ FBG’s told it was so, who knew they had no idea what they were talking about :shrug:

I just always assume I'm way behind the times and only old people use Twitter anyway.

Really? I'm not sure about all of Twitter but I never have felt the Fantasy Football community on Twitter was old. I mean sure, the demographic is way older than Snatchat/Instagram/Tiktok but not 'old".

Or maybe it's better to define "old".

My take is tons of 30-40 year olds are on Twitter. Maybe that says something about me but that doesn't feel "old" to me. Does it you?
