The problem with polls is that NOBODY actually reads them let alone scrutinizes them. But we all love to quote them, especially if it fits our pov.
Most polls are created to achieve predetermined results.

When you look at the metrics, it's never balanced. The last Presidential election really exposed that.

Ive said my thoughts on how all these threads are just merging into the same subject matter. Now im the one repeating myself in multiple threads lol. The irony is not lost on me.
I'm honestly sick of talking politics too...but it was forced upon us and took over our sport, which used to be an ESCAPE from politics.

I'll try not to get sucked back in so much, at least in the Locker Room.


I just want to see the players on the field, preferably running, not kneeling, and sing HAIL TO THE REDSKINS again.


We're all here because we love this team, whatever it's called...so there's no reason to turn on each other.

It was years ago, but the three earlier polls used standard methodology.

I am unable to scrutinize the UCB one as I would have to shell out money and since it is game over, there is no point.

But, examining the comments of someone who did, one finds this:

Startlingly, for a poll about a football team, only 31 percent of the respondents were “Cisgender men,” the other 69 percent being “Cisgender women; transgender, nonbinary, and genderqueer people;” the Berkeley survey authors found that the latter were significantly more opposed to the team name. The Post sample, by contrast, was 49 percent male. It also appears that the Berkeley survey’s respondents skewed younger (typical for an online survey), with 47 percent under the age of 35; the Post sample had a higher share of respondents age 50 or older (39 percent) than the Berkeley survey’s 33 percent who were aged 45 or older. Again, the younger respondents were much more opposed.

Not what I would call objective, but it's all moot now.

Re: Will You Still Wear Your Skins Gear After?

Absolutely. I will also be open to new gear only if the name is close to the Indian or Chief. If it is the Wolf or Retails forget it. No way I'm wearing that nonsense.

Re: Will You Still Wear Your Skins Gear After?

The answer is Yes...I will be wearing my Redskins hats shirts and jerseys.

Most of my Redskins stuff is from the the Glory year of the '80's and '90's. I also have a jersey from the '70's.

Eventually I will probably get some of the the gear from the new team monicker.

Hopefully the team won't be called Redtails...there are just too many bad jokes that could come out of that

Re: Will You Still Wear Your Skins Gear After?

Agreed...and let's be honest, if Redtails is chosen, it has racial implications or intentions...I thought the whole point of being forced to change the name was to get away from that.

I'm not saying they do not deserve the honor, but every report on the Redtails name has to emphasize their skin color, which takes away from their real achievements.

Re: Will You Still Wear Your Skins Gear After?

So.... is wearing Skins stuff equivalent to wearing or displaying the confederate flag at this point?

It took over 100 years for the confederate flag to nationally be accepted as a symbol of hate so I think you're good.

I grew up in New England it was always considered disrespectful or I should say taboo. I am 47.

We have to wait for this bombshell news to see if Snyder had slaves working in the stadium. Grounds crew maybe?

And it should have been sadly New England isn’t indicative of America as a whole on that issue. But I was referring to late 60s is when we really started considering it
