Generation_D: The PC brigade of re-imagining butthurt took down Chief Illiniwek and 80 years of tradition at one school.I don't see any reason why DC or the NFL would be any different.I think DC can live without its feathers and its war bonnets.MLB and Atlanta and Cleveland too.If this sh*t matters, and our tiny little army of PC warriors, sorry, of lawyers and concerned descendants says it definitely does, than what the University of Illinois went through should be completed everywhere there's still a mascot that offends a group of people, using the same logic.Otherwise its just selective enforcement, and pretty much proves the whole thing was a comical political farce.
Pud: The only answer is to decide on a name that offends no one. Then give that name to all sports teams.The Fuzzy Puppies defeated the Fuzzy Puppies 24 - 22./On second thought, that name might offend women with chest hair. But you get the idea
Sybarite: I think they need to change it back to the original name, the Washington Sneaky Chinamen.
Orgasmatron138: The people attacking it probably shouldn't be making a big deal out of it. There are worse injustices in the world. The people defending it place WAY too much importance on sports and sports mascots/team names.In short, you are all coonts.
jayphat: uninvited sex partners is a new term to me, thanks.
SnarfVader: A co-worker of mine who is full-blooded Navajo is a big Redskins fan. He also calls white people "Apples" because we sunburn easily./CSB
Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: I'll believe this "it's racist" argument when I hear the same people argue against the "Fighting Irish." Cause singling out ethnicity is wrong, and junk.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: People still read newspapers Newspapers (or any other print media for that matter) Still Exist?!?!??
GRCooper: //tiny biatcherokee
FishyFred: GRCooper: //tiny biatcherokeeSNERTThat's probably the first time someone has been filterpwned that way.
doubled99: It'sa racial slur. Really?I have the heard the term "redskin" used thousands of times in my life. In 100% of those, the reference was to the football team from D.C.
groppet: Maybe instead of a nae change just do a mascot change from a native to a redskin potato./hail skins//Snyder DIAF!
tallguywithglasseson: Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: I'll believe this "it's racist" argument when I hear the same people argue against the "Fighting Irish." Cause singling out ethnicity is wrong, and junk.Might have a point for teams like the Indians. For the Redskins, wake me when Notre Dame changes to the "Fighting Micks". I'm sure the Irish would be just fine with that. In fact, it's honoring them.
