Actually polls cited in this article say the opposite:
SI.com - Magazine - SI Flashback: The Indian Wars - Wednesday August 17, 2005 10:10AM

And it is spelled "Cherokee."

That article points a divide between the Native American activists and the regular population. I think the answer isn't as clear cut.

Redskins4ever made a sweeping claim about the "regular population" and the numbers in that article reference that population:

Indeed, a recent SI poll suggests that although Native American activists are virtually united in opposition to the use of Indian nicknames and mascots, the Native American population sees the issue far differently. Asked if high school and college teams should stop using Indian nicknames, 81% of Native American respondents said no. As for pro sports, 83% of Native American respondents said teams should not stop using Indian nicknames, mascots, characters and symbols. Opinion is far more divided on reservations, yet a majority (67%) there said the usage by pro teams should not cease, while 32% said it should.

The Redskins are the only team not using some form of those colors. Professional team that is. Well and DC United I guess. But soccor is not my cup of tea and don't care what color they use.
Leonsis doesn't own the skins.. love the red white and blue but no

Let us avoid the what if and work on protecting the brand

Just like you plan to protect your kids vs developing a plan if they get kidnapped

what about when the caps shared the wizards color scheme. can you imagine the redskins in that crap. during that time i feared that if the redskins were forced to change their name, they would have matched the caps and the wizards.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

Figired I'd post here since it's a new player in a new uniform.

Made an RGIII "football card". Used MS Paint so be nice.
