Let me say first that I'm conservative, not GOP... and I'm not much into social engineering... but I don't like the use of the name 'Redskins'. In the world of sports, I believe that aside from 'the Fighting Irish', there are no teams named for racial or ethnic groups... no Detroit 'Drunkin' Micks', no Houston 'Hollerin' Hispanics', or Chicago 'Charging Chinks'.... and let's not forget that 'Redskins' was a derogatory term no different from the 'N' word. Reflecting what's going in in DC, perhaps Snyder should change the name to "Washington Wallowing Whiteguys"? Kudos to Cindy (.. they're embarrassed by the 'Washington' part lol), and Samplin (change the logo to a potato!). And to the person who's trying to imply that this case is the same, or will lead to banning animal names for teams... do you not see the irony in your inane comparison? I just don't think teams should have their origins in insulting terms for a race of people who were given one of the biggest shaftings in world history, and attempt to portray it as 'honoring' their heritage.
