Re: Will You Still Wear Your Skins Gear After?

I have some gear I wear around the house doing yard work. Through a winter coat I had for 10 yrs that I don't wear (it is warm but useless when wet so not really an effective winter coat) so I sold it on ebay last week for $80 that was a worthwhile sale will put it towards new team gear. I had an all black Skins hat that I wore religiously but I never wear it outside my house. Mostly because I have hated having to own Snyder in public in Ravens country. He literally has worn me down having to answer questions about his actions. However, I won't wear my Skins gear out in public anymore. In addition to having to own Snyder I had an interaction in Vermont with a group of Native Americans at township festival about 5 years ago where we had a great dialogue but since then I decided to respect the feelings of my brothers.

Yes, I'll keep wearing and I'll buy more while I can too.
You better do so quickly, because I would not be surprised if stuff starts getting pulled from shelves. Places that sell licensed stuff can be ordered to do so and if they do not comply can lose their contracts with the manufacturers.

Never had any pitching aside from Guidry. Not a Yankees fan. Had Steinbrenner not been suspended in early 90s, that late 90s dynasty would have never happened.

Re: Will You Still Wear Your Skins Gear After?

I will say my kids who are highly indifferent to the Skins going to school around Baltimore they watch the Ravens neither are really into watching the games I think it is just to talk to their friends in school but they really want to buy some new gear when the team is released.

I grew up in the late 80s and early 90s expansion era and remember grabbing gear of every new logo that came out at that time.

Re: Will You Still Wear Your Skins Gear After?

It wonít take long for ďRedskinsĒ to be primarily associated with the crap tenure of Snyder. There arenít going to be many of us left who remember Gibbs 1.0, let alone Sonny v Billy, the brief Lombardi era, the clothesline tackles of Chris Hanburger. In some ways itís good to retire the name before Snyder adds another 20 years of mediocrity to the Legacy.

Iíll hold on to my most treasured Skins gear, but Iím not going to parade it around as an f u to racial sensitivity. This is our football team, not some new Lost Cause. If football is eventually banned for being too violent, THEN Iíll parade my gear around, Skins, Wolves, Warriors, Whatevers.

Good way to put it. It's like those that continue flying confederate flags. I think they're mostly doing it as a FU to everyone. Just makes them look dumb.

Re: Will You Still Wear Your Skins Gear After?

To answer the question, yes. The evidence has always indicated Redskins is not offensive, unless one uses cheesy Western B movies as a source.

I see people wearing or displaying lots of things I personally do not care for. It's none of my business.

Somehow I doubt the world will end.

Re: Will You Still Wear Your Skins Gear After?

I'll hang up the old logo in the closet, and every once in a while probably take it out and reminisce about my childhood fan days in the 80s and early 90s. To me that's how I'll look at the old stuff, a symbol of the greatness of the Gibbs era.

At the same time I'll look to turn the page and wear the new stuff, as soon as it's available, because I'm a fan of the team no matter what they're called, and I'll embrace the path forward.

I'm a die-hard, there was never a chance I wouldn't hop on the bandwagon, no matter which road it goes down.

Agree, I was pissed and rebelling the other day but I'm a fan forever

Re: Will You Still Wear Your Skins Gear After?

Why would I stop wearing Skins gear?

When I wear it now itís a general fuck you, this is my team and fuck yours. And likewise itís a salute to other Skins fans to say hey this is our team.

The new stuff will probably be awesome, but the old stuff to me will gain even more importance in terms of fandom. I respect that more imo.

If the underlying meaning of the question is...should you not wear Skins brand stuff. Fuck you and die is my answer and go cry some more about something as irrelevant as a sports team name.

Re: Will You Still Wear Your Skins Gear After?

There will be Redskins gear at the stadium FOREVER, I also predict HTTR will be sung in protest and remembrance too. Any attempt to stop it will only hurt the "new" team.
