Really it gets old. And that it needs to come to an agreement. And it will sadly drag on.

I remember the local news talking about protests at the game, but i didnt see any last year. I was tailgating most of day so i figured to see something.
the "protest" was about 10 people, so i'm not surprised you missed it.

In other news, making a stand is still trendy. More to come on the news at 11.

Re: Breaking News on team name

Who is crying about the name these days besides the corrupt, ultra liberal DC government?

The Stupid F#&king media!

Personally I have heard it several times in the past couple of weeks...

“They Must change the Name"

"We won't use the team name here because it is derogatory!"

That kind of $hit

Yeah, "change the name" has become the same kind of small minded liberal one-upmanship as bragging "I own a hybrid car".

*i know... not every hybrid owner is liberal or a douche bag. Ooohh, tautalogy!

Re: Breaking News on team name

Here's your latest update, maybe this article from the WaPo will be the last of this. Most likely not though, considering Susan Harjo already denounced the entire article and its (paraphrasing) crappy method of collecting results. I also didn't like how they finished the article with the husband and wife who are split on the issue. With the poll results maybe they should have gathered the husband and 8 of his closest relatives/friends for a more accurate depiction of the numbers.

That said, this game is fun:

Buffalo Bills - we nearly hunted the species into extinction, how can we exploit a species that humans have caused to be endangered threatened etc. Hell they're another native group that should be offended.
Bengals- see Buffalo Bills (not native to America though)
Bears- see Buffalo Bills
Broncos - glorifying the human eploitation of animals as property and forced labor.
Colts - see Broncos
Cowboys- see Broncos
Dolphins - see Buffalo Bills
Eagles - see Buffalo Bills
Falcons- see Buffalo Bills
Jaguars - see Buffalo Bills
Lions - see Bengals
Panthers- see Buffalo Bills
Rams - see Broncos
Seahawks - see Buffalo Bills, but also, ahem, I think you mean Osprey.

Seriously where the hell is PETA? WTF?

Titans - same as the Giants argument.

49ers - glorifying the exploitation of blue collar hard working Americans. Might as well name a team the Sweatshop workers.
Steelers- see 49ers

Chargers- named after credit cards, I am personally offended learning this. They are glorifying American materialism, and the exploitation of the American people by the banking industry and the cycle of debt that enslaves us.

Browns - Now that is a PC name. Just name your team after the color of the uniform. It is perfectly neutral. We could be the Burgandy and Gold. Done. All team names will be their colors.
Cowboys and Patriots are worse than that to the Native Americans . . . they are the people that committed genocide on the Native American people as a whole . . . both of those names are akin to having a team called the Nazi's
