I'd just stop playing football

if I was on the redskins. Zorn is the worst thing to happen to football since the Tom Brady rule, so only a few weeks of bad, but he is terrible.

In DC it is pronounced

In DC it is pronounced "Reh-skeeans", so maybe that is why there is a disconnect :)

regardless, its not the government's job to be changing the names of sports franchises.

I am a huge Wizards fan, but I was VERY dissapointed when they changed their name to the PC(witchcraft is very PC) wizards from the Bullets(bad-ass long-time franchise name).

Who Cares?

I would say the American Indians care, but their numbers are so small (and there's so much money in the NFL) that they can't make a big stink about it.

You'd never see the "Newark Tar Babies", "Sarasota Kikes", or "San Antonio Wetbacks" for obvious reasons.

Just for the record; I think the "Cleveland Indians" is okay, so are the "Notre Dame Fighting Irish" as well as the "Minnesota Vikings."

I live near DC but have never supported the Redskins for this very reason, and was an Eagles fan when I watched football.

Edit: This was intended to be a reply to Bad Karma

Huh?

Without proper punctuation, I don’t really understand your reply; it could be taken a few different ways.

I’m not trying to be a smart ass or a grammar Nazi, I really am unsure what you’re saying.

you essentially say

you essentially say

"they are in the minority, so who cares?"

that's a weak argument. it's terrible.

That's not what I'm saying

I'm saying they're in such a small minority, and don't have groups like NAACP, AIPAC, La Raza (with large bank rolls) to take the super rich NFL to court.

Of course I care; I think it's terrible that in the 21st century, people are so brainwashed that they will support this team, and never even think about what their team name means.

Edit: I understand your confusion; I was replying to Bad Karma who said, "Who cares?" I had to log in to reply, and because of a bug in the software, it didn't post my message as a reply.

cool.

how about the "Washington Jews"

or the "Washington Blacks" ?

Just wondering...

with that being said, i would probably argue that a private company should be allowed to call themselves whatever they want.

Some black people prefer to be called African American, but I don't think they would have grounds to tell a football franchise not to name themselves after the "blacks."

or would they?

The Washington Spicks, maybe?

Or "The Enjuns"
I don't care either, I do find it amusing though.

ya, i can see how that is insulting

...

that said, it seems this becomes a trucknutz debate.

do i have the liberty to hang testicles off my tow hitch, that will surely insult others?

i suppose it's a state issue. or city.

i can understand why the federal courts did not see this.

There are more important issues to tend... as to this ...

I say ..................SO WHAT!

Well,

it is sad that they don't understand that Redskins' is an insulting word. I guess it would be like calling them the Washington White Honkies team.
Maybe, the people who were upset with the name go directly to the management and maybe, work something out.

"the Wasington White Honkies" that is funny

I think they already have that team the Washington Generals.

As a peace loving American of Irish descent, I am mortally offended by the the crude and insulting stereotype of the fighting Irish.

Or, as me liltin' cousin Paddy says, "The Irish never let agreement get in the way of a good fight."

if the owner wants to call

if the owner wants to call his team the redskins.. who cares?

A prudent man foresees the difficulties ahead and prepares for them; the simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. Proverbs 22:3
Matthew 10:34 Think not that I am come to
send peace on earth: I came not to send peace,
but a sword.

'There is no truth to the rumor that the team had ever planned to call itself the Washington Niggers.'
