Michigan football helmets are one of the most distinguishable lids in college or pro football. The Wolverines winged look with the Maize and Blue colors has been in place for a century, but there will be a slight modification for this coming season. When the Michigan Wolverines hit the field for Saturday's season-opener at Minnesota, they'll have an "EQUALITY" sticker on the back representing the diversity and commitment to unity.

The helmet decals will be worn by all Michigan's varsity sports this year after a student-athlete initiative in conjunction with the athletic department developed the designs that will be worn on uniforms, helmets and pregame uniforms.

Discerning folks need only one finger.
To push the off button.
Unless, of course, they would chose to use a different finger to salute the “team” before off is pushed.

...'EQUALITY' decal with 6 raised fists...

Why six fists? Suggesting that if you ain't 'woke', three team members will beat the crap out of you with their bare hands? Or maybe that the players like to spend time at the local gay 'bath house'? Lots of ways to interpret that 'fist' thing, I guess...

ASPCA needs to force them to change their names from the Wolverines to the Michigan Cheap Thugs.

“equality”

Black nationalists, feminazis, and homofascists always wanted supremacy, there was no talk of “equality”. Those were other people pushing for an end to division and supremacist ideologies.

Northwestern laughs at Michigan for being so far left. OK, maybe not. Well... maybe.
