Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

To be fair...the article on ESPN was accurate. The headline though said they wanted it changed. I believe it said something like "Green,Monk support name change". I know ths because I thought it odd they did that when the article was clear they didn't.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

NBC4 had that as a headline, not sure ESPN (or any of the other national outlets) did

Ive said it before n ill say it again... The cleveland "indians" have a god damn bugs bunny cartoon character as their emblem. Indians is also politically incorrect. Indians are from india. At least the redskins represent their emblem in a proud lite. Through song and image. I mean - is redskins really so bad? White black red yellow. Its a god damn skin tone.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

You guys think that Monk would really feel that way? Especially after him experiencing the best moment the HOF has ever witnessed. I refuse to believe it.

I looked it up and they said indeed use the word "mull". I stand corrected. In any case I agree that it way past time for us to be done with this issue.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

I agree that this was a total backtrack by DG when he suddenly realized he put himself in the middle of a controversial issue. I dont care if they change the name or not but I have said it before and I'll say it again, its only a matter of time before the name is changed. It might be next year or in 10 years but the name will be changed.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

Unless I miss my guess, you have no insight that is extraordinary on this issue? It is complete speculation and hyperbole on your part devoid of any fact. Based on this it is my request that you never mention it again until that changes........as this issue is real tired.
........let the regular season commence.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

War Paint - Meaning of colors of War Paint, Body Paint or Face Painting
There were so many tribes of Native American Indians it is only possible to generalise the most common meanings of the colors and patterns of War Paint, Body Paint or Face Paint.

Red Color Symbolizes war, blood, strength, energy, power and success in war paint but might also symbolise happiness and beauty in face paint


Black was perceived as a "living" color and worn on the face to prepare for war. Very aggressive color. Black meant strength. It might also indicated that the wearer was a powerful warrior who had proved himself in battle. Black was also used to symbolize victory and might be applied before returning home to the camp


White Color Symbolizes mourning. White was also the color of peace when it was used as face paint.


Blue Color Symbolizes wisdom, confidence


Yellow Color Symbolizes the color of death. Yellow also indicated that the wearer was heroic, had led a good life and was willing to fight to the death. It also symbolised intellect


Green Color Symbolizes endurance. Green is associated with harmony and is a great healing power and believed to improve vision

Not sure if it was bought up or posted anywhere else, but what were all your all's thoughts on the email from Snyder about the name change?

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

I posted this on the Dallas thread, but this is more appropriate.


Personal letter from Dan Snyder addressing the team name:

Something tells me he charged this kid $20 for his autograph.

I wish Snyder had never bought the team, but very cool pic and letter.

Edit: very cool letter

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

Yes the letter is awesome, and honestly it is how I thought he felt all along. Deeply connected to the team and the name, and a source of fond childhood memories between him and his father. He loves this team and all the guy wants to do is win. I may not have agreed with his first ten years but his current hands off approach is working or at least trying to work, and with this issue being a center of attention, having him as the owner means we will never have to worry about the change.
