The problem with the name change argument is the same as all other highly politicized arguments: one side wants you to believe that hardly anyone at all is offended, and the other wants you to believe that the people who are offended are being offended in a life-changing way. Reality of course lies in the middle, but pretty much no one is there to cover the reality.
Well don't tell that to the team, they just redid all the sideline graphics on the walls around the stadium with more pronounced emblems and the redskins name in the classic cursive font. Looks great, I thought it was a big F u to all the haters when I saw it in the preseason.

Name change to the Rednecks, and nobody would ****ing care.

Hopefully this type of feigned racial sensitivity wanes in the near future, or at least it just gets exposed as greed.

It's getting to the point where anyone can be offended about anything.

Re: Redskins "Name Change" Volume 10000000

The more this issue gets brought up, the more I am getting heated about it. It's to the point where I don't even care about the intentions of the name anymore, I feel like people/media are hopping on the bandwagon because it's the trendy thing to do. And that pisses me off, if the name is going to be changed it should be because the majority of American Indian people are opposed to it, not because some dingleberry sports writer announces their intentions to stop using the name in protest (and thus gain more attention for hopping on the bandwagon early, just so they can feel good about themselves for "making a difference" later.)

If mothereffers cared about American Indians today, they wouldn't be out here fighting the name of a sports team, they'd be in the American Indian communities, helping with their societal problems, aka lack of education, prominent criminal culture amongst their youth, etc.

Another thing I dislike is the fact that this is only happening because the Redskins are relevant again. When we were irrelevant, and weren't being discussed that much in the national media, only the lawsuit holders cared about this, and now that we're in the news everyday for RG3 reports and the like, we're seeing all these random media members pop out of the woodworks and announce their intention to stop using the name. It's pretty annoying tbh, but the more people call it derogatory, the more press this issue receives, and in the end once the majority of public opinion is that the name is offensive, someone with a big enough shoe is going to step on Dan Snyder's toes until the name is changed. And that's why I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to have to accept that the name is going to be changed, it's not a matter of if, but a matter of when. And with all that said, at the end of the day I'm still going to love this team no matter the name. But damn if I'm not going to defend our right to use it up until the end.

This. All the serious problems in the world today and people are getting offended by a word? Man the f up. If the majority of American Indians don't care about the name, neither do I.

Re: Redskins "Name Change" Volume 10000000

does dan say enough of it and put the team up for sale offering $2-2.5 billion and walk away ?

I do like the blue and red unity of Washington sports teams- Senators, bullets, capitals, nationals, but the Burgundy and gold is an integral part to the team. as is having the first fight song.

All these "Indians" bothered by the term Redskins need to get over it. it seems more of opportunists in politics trying to make a name for themselves. of all the travesties in America, nobody cares about the indian people. heck what about the americans who aren't being valued more than the failing dollar? Banks and corporations are tanking the country well into future generations of debt and a football team that has existed for 80 years is the center of the problem? No. Those offended don't have the marbles to make a change.

No way in hell, a franchise should be forced to change by people not paying into the damage that change will result.

What about the guys with tattoo's? People like me who have been collecting jerseys and everything else since birth and inherited stuff from the '40's?

no way in hell. I say get in line if you are offended by the redskins. the line forms behind the loyal fans and we aren't going anywhere.

Come on now, we all know Americans' favorite past time is to take up a cause with which they have no connection or knowledge. This is right up people's alley. Gotsta have something to complain about to mask how miserable they are with their own lives.

Re: Redskins "Name Change" Volume 10000000

I think Redskins fans should contact Indian tribes that support the name and hold a counter protest, screw the media and those a-holes with their agendas. Show people that 78% support the existing name. Sick of this shit!!
