lol this is the first thing I thought of this morning

they really need to address this problem at the lowest possible level. Meaning im pretty sure if the cowboys didnt kill the indians we wouldnt be having this conversation...and Dallas isnt apart of the collective bargining agreement on sharing proceeds so it wouldnt even effect teh league to get rid of the cowboys

Re: Redskins Trademark cancelled

Fellow Skins fan Redditor said they should change the name of the Washington Redskins to "Washington Native Americans Forced into Poverty by the US Government."


Slap them right back in the face.

Nope. (As you may have already read.)

This is the very same thing that happened in 1999. Very same "evidence" - everything identical. I would be extremely surprised if the ruling is upheld.

Re: Redskins Trademark cancelled

FYI -
For those that keep posting why Braves, Chiefs and other Native team names are not offensive, the issue is the word SKIN. A reference to someone's SKIN COLOR. REDSKINS. Get it?

I do not care what our team name is. I was born and raised in the Washington DC area so I am a huge fan of the team. I would be a fan regardless of the name. The name means nothing to me.
If this is SO upsetting to you, you need to get a life.

Re: Redskins Trademark cancelled

nothing changes unless they lose on appeals, which in they case they do lose, could take years.

meanwhile, no real evidence was submitted, so it's hard to see them losing this.

Yeah I have to agree. So tired of hearing this crap day in and day out.

I would just change the name to "Skins". Get rid of the face on the helmet and all should be good. Plus we can all keep our 30 years worth of gear in our closets.

But I would exhaust every ounce of NFL leverage I have first. I'd tell the league - I'll change the name but first I want this, this, this, and that. Or we can fight this in court for the next 5 years. Your call.

According to the Indians fighting against the name, they claim that they are all offensive. They are going after every name that involves Indians. They stopped targeting the other names because it was hurting their cause with redskins, but they claim all sports names with Indian mascots are derogatory to Indians. According to Susan Blackhorse, they needed one name to fall, then the rest would go like dominoes.

Also, if its about skin color, then the state of Oklahoma needs to change its name. As Oklahoma translates out to "Red People" or "People with red skin".

Re: Redskins Trademark cancelled

Washington Redskins


Quote:
When the case first arose more than 20 years ago, a federal judge in the District of Columbia ruled on appeal in favor of the Washington Redskins and their trademark registrations.

Why?

As the district court’s ruling made clear in 2003, the evidence ‘is insufficient to conclude that during the relevant time periods the trademark at issue disparaged Native Americans...’ The court continued, ‘The Court concludes that the [Board’s] finding that the marks at issue ‘may disparage’ Native Americans is unsupported by substantial evidence, is logically flawed, and fails to apply the correct legal standard to its own findings of fact.’ Those aren’t my words. That was the court’s conclusion. We are confident that when a district court review’s today’s split decision, it will reach a similar conclusion.

In today’s ruling, the Board’s Marc Bergsman agreed, concluding in his dissenting opinion:

It is astounding that the petitioners did not submit any evidence regarding the Native American population during the relevant time frame, nor did they introduce any evidence or argument as to what comprises a substantial composite of that population thereby leaving it to the majority to make petitioner’s case have some semblance of meaning.


The evidence in the current claim is virtually identical to the evidence a federal judge decided was insufficient more than ten years ago. We expect the same ultimate outcome here.”

Re: Redskins Trademark cancelled

When I first heard about it I thought, "Now, Redskins fans will be able to get cheaper Redskins merchandise as anyone could make stuff that says 'Washington Redskins' without paying the licensing fee. Can the Giants lose their protection?" Then realized this will have a negative impact on NFL revenues and the league will make them change the name.

Yes, I know they keep their protection while it is appealed.
