Agreed. Regardless of who is "right," we look really bad by continuing to fight. Might as well cut our losses.

Exactly! Just as I was having a heated discussion with a Redskins fan on another board, what I tried to tell him was that if the name is changed to something that does not relate to Native Americans at all (he doesn't want the new name to be associated with NA's) then Native Americans will continue to disappear from the public's eye. Which means, the government will continue to ignore their needs. Nobody who has argued for a name change has even remotely thought about the real issues Native American tribes deal with. That's what sucks. Attorneys and fat cats get richer, the poorer get poorer, and special interest groups continue to run the country. It's all pretty shameful.

Re: Redskins Trademark cancelled

Here's the story
Of a lovely lady
Who was bringing up three very lovely girls
All of them had hair of gold
Like their mother
The youngest one in curls

It's the story
Of a man named Brady
Who was busy with three boys of his own
They were four men
Living all together
Yet they were all alone

'Til the one day when the lady met this fellow
And they knew that it was much more than a hunch
That this group must somehow form a family
That's the way we all became the Brady bunch

The Brady bunch, the Brady bunch
That's the way we became the Brady bunch

Re: Redskins Trademark cancelled

Oh, and looking up the trademarks, I've noticed that names like the Washington Warriors and the Washington Bravehearts have been trademarked by a Philip Martin McCaulay. Anybody know how this cat is? I could go for either one of those names (or just go back to Braves), but it seems like if this guy has it trademarked, he'd probably want millions for the name. I looked up Washington Braves and don't see that name trademarked.

I think one of Snyder's neighbors trademarked one of those names.

I just worry about what lame name someone would come up with otherwise. I would be offended if they called themselves the Washington Generals. Do we really want to be associated with the basketball team that is punked by the Globetrotters all the time? The Washington Federals means a complete rebranding of colors, logos - a new identity. It's like putting the Redskins in witness protection.

I thought I remember hearing about that, but didn't know if that was a "good" thing for Snyder, or if his neighbor was doing this to keep Dan from choosing another Indian name? He also has Bravehearts trademarked as well. Seems like the last time someone looked this up, the trademark had expired, but it shows the trademark has been renewed and is live.

"This ruling — which of course we will appeal — simply addresses the team’s federal trademark registrations, and the team will continue to own and be able to protect its marks without the registrations. The registrations will remain effective while the case is on appeal.


So the team still owns the trademarks until the appeal is over. If they get denied, I take it the use of the term Redskins is a free for all and the team will no longer have sole rights to its ownership.


edit: Matty's article linked above explained some of my questions.

Re: Redskins Trademark cancelled

Who decides what is "Disparaging". As a Redskins fan the name "Cowboys" is highly disparaging to me. Quick, some one take a poll and send it in to the tradmark office. I want Jerry Jones to lose his trademark as well. While we are at it with this political correctness witchhunt, tell Obama that his beloved Chicago Bears name is also disparaging. Bears are scary! I want that trademark denied.

Meanwhile no one seems to be making an issue of the Cleveland Indians and their mascot.
