Breaking News on team name

BREAKING: Trademark Ban on Washington Redskins Held Unconstitutional law360.com/ip/articles/74…

Surely not over, but a small win for keeping the name.

Regardless of our opinions, I believe the name is going to change eventually. It's one of those things we should probably prepare for. It might not be for a decade but I think it's happening.

The organization should just stop using the word Redskins. Dont drop it just dont use it anymore. Call them Washington or Washington Football and keep the uniforms and logo the same.

I say bleep them and keep on trucking..Political correctness is what the heck is wrong with this country! If I thought or ever thought the name REDSKINS was meant to be a slang i would have never supported the team ..I understand the name offends some folks but they are looking to be offended..I ASK THIS SIMPLE QUESTION. If there last name was redskin would they change there name because it offended me?? it is getting to the point that YOUR NAME could be deemed offensive to some people.

+100 for this post. Political Correctness is what ruined America.

The very things that are offensive to the average american we must tolerate so as not to offend others...totally BS

Re: Breaking News on team name

good news.

I would change the logo before I changed the name...use a Red Ox or some other "manly" red-skinned animal.

But I would make others utter the word Redskin as long as I possibly could.

Re: Breaking News on team name

I pretty much avoid the debate over the name because I feel like it is an issue that will work itself out eventually, but I do think you could keep the name if you just changed the logo out from a native america guy.

Someone was being funny and suggest changing it to a potato.

I also would be fine if they just shortened it from "Redskins to 'Skins since a lot of people say that already.

Re: Breaking News on team name

The name "redskins" wasn't a slur when it originated. It's not used that way now by Washington fans.

It was used as a slur by novelists and later movie studios, some copyright holders in the "entertainment industry" thereof probably still having deep pockets?

So why not go after the people who profited from using the name as an insult, rather than the fans cheering FOR the Redskins today?
