Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

Snyder should not change the name but I have a feeling the pressure is going to keep building up. If he does change the name I would want it go back to the Braves and keep the logo that we have. Have you seen the poll on espn? Oneida Nation meets with NFL leadership to seek Washington Redskins name, mascot change - ESPN

Washington Redsyns

Sounds like Redskins and Redsyn is an anagram of Snyder.

Problem solved.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

Synder should tell them I will change the name of the team when the state of Oklahoma changes it's name.

He should definitely say that he won't change the name until every High School in America AND the Braves, Indians, Warriors, Blackhawks and Chiefs agree to do the same. It's BS that the Redskins are being singled out. All or nothing. Everyone dives into the deepend together or not at all. The 30 plus page document on the National Congress of American Indians website says ALL of these names are offensive.

Hey we're a taboo! And real hypocritical for KC to keep on using Chiefs and not Redskins. Asshats.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

I have changed my view on this whole name change thing from being against it to being for it. If native Americans find the name offensive who am I to tell them they shouldn't be offended?

The name needs to change, it will change. I am hopeful the logo and colors stay the same.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

I really wish that the group that is advocating for the Redskins to change their name would go after the whole concept of using Native Americans as team mascots/names. While I do feel we are headed in the direction of a name change, I think it is ridiculous that you got all this pressure on the Redskins, while you still have the Braves, Indians (with their caricatured mascot), the Chiefs, the Blackhawks, the Seminoles, etc,. etc.

I have heard that is the game plan. it will be a domino effect. The funny thing to me is how Oneida could find Seminoles offensive if they aren't from Seminole heritage, I think that has interesting legal implications.

They should be focusing on that and not just one team. I don't think they'll get anywhere attacking one team.

I looooove the old school spear. I would not be disappointed if we went back to that. A little boring but I think it still works.

I thought it was a fairly well known fact that the vast majority of Native Americans aren't offended by the name. The question you should be asking is: "Who are we to tell the Native Americans what they should be offended about?"
