If you drop the letter K, the remaining letters spell
SNIDERS
"HAIL TO THE SNIDERS" has a certain ring to it.

I think that's something Snyder should have done as soon as he bought the team. It seems that FSU basically did this and that's why they're aloud to be the Seminoles. But I guess it's too late now...

FSU made a deal with the biggest Seminole tribe in Florida. They get a letter to the NCAA giving them the ok to keep the name from the Seminole tribe, and that specific Seminole tribe gets scholarships to attend FSU for their teenagers that graduate from high school.

If these groups can make money then its always on time. That's what this is really about. Like someone posted earlier some of these groups protesting get free advertisement and sponsoring.

As much as I use to bash Snyder its times like this I don't entirely hate his ownership. There's no way he'll willingly change the team's name.

Not that I wanted to see it, but was there any coverage of the protest? was it really that small? It would seem like that should put it to rest for the season at least.

Someone posted a pic on twitter, Cooley I think, and if you didn't know what it was supposed to be you'd have no clue it was a protest. Seriously, about 10 people with a couple of signs. Lame as can be.

I can just imagine the headline covering the story:

"Large protest over Washington Football Team's Name goes down at Lambeau; details inside."

How about this? Suppose Snyder says forget it, it's not worth it and sells the team. Someone buys the team and moves them to LA and calls them the Stars or whatever. ANd it's RG3 and company. But then the NFL grants an expansion team to DC and that team gets the Redskins name and colors, but it's different players. Who's your team?

When fewer protesters show up, than the 50+ organizations claimed to support the protest, something doesn't add up.

Wow I read somewhere before the game that there would be a protest. I had no idea it would be that small... Media sure blows things out of proportion
