Including the native Americans all over the country whose own schools use the same name? Or just us?

Ahh. You must fall into that demo who are the most offended by the name.

You know, lilly white with a journalism degree from Northwestern. The last two Wash Po polls seems to narrow the outrage to that group.

To each his own.

Re: If you could make 1 change...

Name change idea: We go back (sort of) to Washington Braves. Keep all the logos, etc. (I have never heard anyone argue those are racist, unlike some other native-American based mascots).

And (this is where the idea gets bad), when we build a new stadium we can give away free beer with season tickets.

Land of the Free (beers), Home of the Braves.

Re: If you could make 1 change...

I don't know how there are so many Redskins fans (commenting on this post) who want a name change so badly? Are you really a Redskins fan if the team name is so offensive to you that you want it changed?

The same way you can like anything else in life but still want something about that thing to be different.

Yep, although I didn't answer your second question:

Answer: Yep.

Well, I like your answer but I would like to change it at the same time. This follows your logic so I'm sure you'll agree to that to. LOL.

Nope, not the same logic at all. Your logic would be lime saying "I like the Redskins team name and I want to change it." What I actually said is I am a fan of the Redskins, but I would also like them to change their name. You can be a fan of something while acknolwdging there are parts you are unhappy with.

Re: If you could make 1 change...

So change the name, change the uniforms... then the identity of the team is gone. So are you just a fan of the football team playing in DC?

I agree. With all the player moves these days the only thing left for the fan to identify with is the name and the colors. Take that away and you take away the fans connection to the team. Seinfeld was correct, we are rooting for laundry.
