Very true.

With that, I'm off to Subway to support RGIII's career.

Yep, but also doesn't mean they are happy about it. No one here is doing a poll on the mall in front of the museum. Are you saying you speak for them?

Re: Official Redskins Off-Season News & Rumors-Part Trois



After this bullshit was posted in the Reddit /nfl sub forum, the mods decided to ban any further news in regards to the Redskins name unless it was ground breaking. (aka....they actually changing their name)

Hello folks,

With regards to the Redskins possible rename, we mods feel it would be best if we removed all articles regarding it UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE NAME IS ACTUALLY CHANGED OR THERE IS SIGNIFICANT NEWS FROM THE NFL OR THE REDSKINS.

The reasons for this are as follows:

The argument itself has been absolutely beaten into the ground in this sub, with the same two types of comments posted over and over, and at this point no value is being added.

(Here are the two points: Point 1: It's not racist. Point 2: It's racist, how would you feel if they were called the Washington insert slur here.)

There's no "debating", there's no agreement or common ground to be found.

The threads regarding the name all devolve into name calling and racial slurs being thrown about constantly, which as you all know, is against the rules of the sub.

It's a political topic, and politics are not discussed in r/NFL. Again, as a reminder, if and when the team changes it's name, we will obviously want to have discussion regarding that, but at this time there is no apparent end in sight for this debate.

Due to the above reasons, we will be removing any and all links to it until there are actual comments from the NFL/Redskins regarding a name change, truly significant news, or the subject is dropped for good.

Thanks, and we hope you understand, Mod team

Can't begin to tell you how happy I was.

*Logs on twitter* "Is RG3 blaming Shanahan for injury?" "Will the Skins change their name?" ARE WE REALLY GOING TO TALK ABOUT THIS FOREVER?

Please read: the Redskins name controversy : nfl





Can't begin to tell you how happy I was.
Can we do that here?

Seriously, I've been sucked into this stupid debate every year I've been on the WP.

We used to ban all talk about the team name, til people started complaining about the slippery slope of censorship and tyranny.
