Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

The protests in Denver targeted players and apparently were bigger than in Green Bay. Another protest is planned for Minnesota.

I have some native american blood in me and i really do not get this. Seems like these people have too much time on their hands. I still say the cleveland "indians" is more offensive with the damn goofy cartoon dude.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

I think today's meeting between Goodell and DS is the beginning of the end for Washington's football team being called the Redskins.

I agree Irish, it's sad but I think DS will cave

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

I don't think anything comes from today. It's more of a let's sit down with the other side just to placate them for a while.

I agree with Matty. Also what makes you guys think DS is going to cave? You dont get to where he is by caving.

I agree punch but I think he'll be forced to do it eventually.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

I dont think its about DS caving or the Skins/NFL placating the other side. I think this meeting is to begin to develop a unified message so that DS and the NFL can change the Skins name all the while maintaining that the word Redskins isnt a slur.

I also think they are going to get together on how to market the new name and logo to maximize the huge profits that are guaranteed to come from this change. This change is going to be a huge win-win for everybody.

If they change the name and logo that means all of that history goes away right? I mean it should

Why? Its still the same team, players, organization, and city. Nothing changes except a nickname, logo, and maybe colors.

Woah woah woah. Their is no reason to change colors or a logo and nobody is asking them to do so. Also - again - this is just a dog and pony show by Snyder and the league to make the few people who are upset about a dumb nickname think that their "problem" is as important as the real problems in the world.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

Personally I think the Dan can put this whole thing to bed if he throws up a few casino's on Oneida turf and hires all the combatants.............

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

Goodell is meeting with the Oneida nation soon, so it makes sense for him to talk with Snyder first and get his take on things

I think so too although it might be too late for that strategy.

If we must change, don't change the colors! B&G for life!
