the problem I think of is they would make them get rid of any indian theme all together which I find offensive in itself.

I don't want Washington Redskins stuff to become collectors items I cant get a hold of because I don't have enough money because someone equates it with gay bashing or racism or whatever
Dragons are not "kiddie" things. They were the sacred emblem of the Chinese emperor and so are emblazoned on government buildings, temples, etc., all over China. They also have a long history of marking important adult things in Japan, Vietnam, etc. Turning to Europe, Beowulf is hardly children's literature. Dragons were used on medieval maps such as the Lenox Globe. You need to learn about dragons.

Besides, many kids are NFL fans, so having a kid-friendly mascot is not a bad idea.

Have you guys read Sally Jenkins response to Dan's letter in the Washington Post? I can't stand her.
Washington Redskins team name: Another letter, the same spirit - The Washington Post

It's like you can't agree to disagree anymore in this country. Some politically correct person has to have the last word.

Never change the name Mr. Snyder, if for no other reason than to continue to piss these kinds of people off!

When it comes time to rally against football and ban it as a sport. Sally will be there rallying against the sport that made her rich.

Dragons can't be any worse than the New Orleans Pelicans.

I wanna know what kind of glue the person who thought that team name was a good idea was sniffing.

No joke. If the name changes, I fear that we will have some lame new name like the Pelicans. At least dragons are ferocious.

My guess is that it would be Warriors and the logo would have a military feel to it.
Ironically, I know people (my Dad for instance) who absolutely hate it when teams/athletes are equated to soldiers.

If they're both so against the name, how about they go work for another paper?

I would hate that, too. Playing in the NFL and being in a foxhole in Afghanistan are not the same thing.

Those two just seem to hate the team. Whatever topic it is with the Skins, they never miss a chance to kill them. Id given Wise about 100 chances, but the Donovan interview was last straw. Sally just sux, never really liked her articles one way or the other.


Quick note on the letter and sports jouranlism, it was really great to see Danny cite Richmond's very own Skins reporter Paul Woody's article and research. Woody always been fair and takes the time to actually do research on sports issues. You would like to think bigger papers would have the better journalist, certainly not in this case. These pieces of sh*t Mike Wise and Jenkins combined dont have the writing talent Paul Woody possesses. I look at the crap today in the big papers, yahoo, bleacher report, etc and its really damn sad as it is pathetic.

Hmmmm...you have a point. Perhaps we could change the name to
"Washington Indian alcoholism, poverty and violence on the Reservation's"? Something that has actual meaning and worthy of social concern and possible action?
No.........that shit doesn't count.....not trivial enough..Oh Well...wtf
