Money talks and bullshit walks. That never changes. Now, that Walmart, Target, and Nike are going to drop Redskins gear and all of the other potential financial crises Snyder is facing, he finally seeing the light about the name. What a joke!
If he thinks changing the name is bad for business then he could certainly choose to weigh any offers that come his way. The name is all about business. You just said it, money talks.

Re: Minority Owners of the Skins Want Out.

I think him fighting a name change is the best way for him to get removed. Over the last few years he has started to affect other owners bottom line or even the NFL they will vote to remove him.

Re: Minority Owners of the Skins Want Out.

For the record I think the chance of Snyder selling is very slim to none, but we've seen crazier things happen. Never thought we'd be in the position to be changing the name. So who knows?

Re: Minority Owners of the Skins Want Out.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who doesn't want Bezos as an owner. He's gonna pay 5 bil for the Redskins, come in and change the name, build a new stadium on his own dime, and then charge us fans more to recoup his investment. He's gonna price the blue collar fans (like myself) right out of the stadium.

Doesn't every NFL owner does this already?

Re: Minority Owners of the Skins Want Out.

We already know Snyder is a proven loser. I'm fine with getting him out at any cost.

Yeah, I don't get the love for Snyder all of the sudden. I'd be fine if the team has a new owner.

...and insert his undesirable politics like he does with Amazon.

Re: Minority Owners of the Skins Want Out.

I listened to him on the Fan yesterday and he was mostly spewing BS.

Went on about how horrible the Redskin name is. Well, Michael Wilbon, if that is true, please tell us why you were a regular commentator on Redskins Report for years?

He has a 20 year track record of losing and he's the only constant in this era of futility. Just having him out as owner will bring back fans.

Even just hearing the notion surface is glorious.

Oh stop man. Stop trying to act like social inequality is a joke. It is getting old.
People are fighting for respect, dignity, and equality. But every time I turn around someone on this page is acting like it has no actual basis in fact. “Whats next eagles are going to be offended “ ? All that bullshit as if social inequality is a hoax. I mean I honestly can not wrap my head around the lack of understanding coming from so many posters on here. The willingness to down play it and act like we are the victims because our football team is going to change names. It is sickening.

Re: Minority Owners of the Skins Want Out.

Personally, since this is just a sports team, I would just like Snyder to change the name and get on with it. There are some good choices out there and Snyder can either pick a bland name (Warriors, Red Hawk) or something more bold (Redtails, Warthog, Raptors, Mohawk).

Snyder is making this choice because of money. Eventually the teams website may try to play this as being Snyder’s idea.

I distresses me that some folks think this is the end of the world sort of issue. We are in the middle of a global pandemic, which in the end will probably kill more Americans than in WWII. We are still involved in limited combat in two countries, although the press is not covering it too much. We also seeing more social upheaval in the U.S. than the late’60’s! This has been a TOUGH FREAKING YEAR.

I really like the Redskins name, the team has a storied history. I understand why it hurts ppl who don’t want it to change. But it’s time, so Snyder make the decision, take the flack and false praise. Then everyone can get back to get ready for the PS and finally football!

Just like the Draft tv program this year, which I thought was the best televised draft EVER (so much emotion and real life stories), versus the canned Vegas style hoopla of precious years. It may be different in some ways but:
AMERICA NEEDS FOOTBALL THIS YEAR. Let’s get to it!
