Re: Smithsonian Museum - yet another thread on team name

The answer really is simple, the Washington Sentinels. Life imitating the movies is always good.

Re: Smithsonian Museum - yet another thread on team name

If I missed it I apologize but why not "Braves" and keep the logo?

Just an unwritten rule that I have noticed really has never been broken. I also feel that nba has more regional names then the nfl. Maybe Washington generals...

Re: Smithsonian Museum - yet another thread on team name

How about we just keep the name and tell the uptight PC folks out there to buzz off?

I'm sure he isn't happy about this.

On Washington Redskins’ name, it’s time the grown-ups talk sense into Daniel Snyder - The Washington Post

Re: Smithsonian Museum - yet another thread on team name

I have a great deal of empathy for the plight of Native Americans but have also been a fan of the Redskins for almost 50 years. I personally have never thought of the Redskins name as offensive but then thought maybe I am being insensitive.

I asked a 20 plus year friend of mine who is 1/2 Seminole and 1/2 Lakota if he or members of his family who live on the Seminole reservation in Hollywood Florida find the name Redskins, Seminoles, Braves or Indians to be offensive. He said HELL NO. That's good enough for me.

Re: Smithsonian Museum - yet another thread on team name

It would be ironic if all sports teams that offend those certain whiners changed their names and as the years pass that they'll complain why no teams honor Native Americans.

Re: Smithsonian Museum - yet another thread on team name

The name change topic has always angered me. I have grown up proud to be a Redskin. It represents a honor and stregnth to me. If we were forced to change the name I propose at least one season as the Washington Reds - Kins. The sons and daughters of Republicans. With a middle finger as our logo.

That'd be cool since i'm an Atlanta Braves fan. I still contend that while I don't think it will happen, if it does, they will use my idea and call the team Washington Pigskins.

Re: Smithsonian Museum - yet another thread on team name

The Washington Post, and Sally Jenkins in particular, cover the Redskins/Dan Snyder with a very thinly veiled bit of contempt. She, at least in her coverage, hates Snyder, and any news item which she can use to mock, attack or just plain hate on Snyder she will do it. A lot of that Dan brought on himself with his early moves when he bought the team, but to think this article is anything more than just an attempt to slam Snyder is basically wrong.

I hope eventually the Post and the Skins kiss and make up, but until then I'll rely on several other far more accurate, and less biased, sources for Skins community news.

This and Wise just has a stick in his butt on this. Different philosophies are at work. My feeling is that it isn't meant to be offensive, quite the opposite really, and it isn't universally regarded as racist so the PC folks can go pound sand. I have a real problem with the notion that a few people can get upset over something that isn't actually hurting them in any real way and then effect change. The other side thinks these people, infinitesimally insignificant in numbers as they are, get to decide what's best for everyone else.
