Poorly disguised variation on the old "it's not you, it's me" technique for breaking up with the fat girl.

Dan Snyder has to be a problem for the folks who believe that rich people got that way by being better and smarter than the average person.

So, has Snyder done more damage to the NFL than Sterling did to the NBA yet?

None? None damage? I think that's less than Sterling.

Can some media-savvy farker explain to me how a guy like this should even proceed on this issue? What "efforts in preserving" are we talking about here?

Seems to me there's zero room for compromise, any sort of charity ass-covering bullshiat is immediately transparent and self-serving, and your best allies are all the people who can't be bothered to give a fark about a football team's name, so why not just STFU (and fill the team's store/media with wall-to-wall nostalgia)? It's like B-movie quicksand - probably only a matter of time, but fighting it is just going to take more time off the clock.

In the UK the Middlesex Crusaders changed their name after complaints from Jews and Muslims.

I'd say the Redskins is more offensive than that

The only thing I can think of is to hire a bunch of Native Americans to speak out in support of the name. Change the narrative into "this is an argument for Native Americans to settle among themselves" so it doesn't look like a racist name but rather something that isn't to the liking of a particular subgroup. Meanwhile keep using the name while the "debate" goes on and on between the activists and those hired by the team. Then hope that the public will get bored and forget the whole thing. Not sure how well that would work but most of the other approaches so far have failed to do anything but make Snyder look like a horse's rear.

Players aren't threatening to strike and no major sponsors are complaining, so no.  Not in the minds of the NFL.

All of Snyder's shenanigans have been at the expense of his fans as opposed to the league.  The whole "peanuts bought on the cheap from a bankrupt airline" isn't exactly in Sterling's league of fail.

But where Sterling was good at mass discrimination and making multiple people's lives miserable at once, Dan Snyder targets and ruins the life of one unfortunate person with surgical precision.

Never seen that pic, funny but wrong at the same time.

Holy shiat. What a narcissistic douche bag.

Snyder is an asshole for bullying through his clear-cut plan, but it sounds like it was the political bootlicks doing his bidding (and, from the looks of things, that of other rich and well-connected types too) that went after the ranger after Snyder had finally gotten his way. If they couldn't screw the guy over in one venue, they just moved on to another one where they could.

No, and he can't. Not with this issue.

This is way down the list of things I care about. Nevertheless if you ask me the best and easy path is to just change the name. We all know it's going to change sooner or later. Let's face it, it's kind of a shiat name to begin with.

Glenn Beck says the name isn't offensive and that's good enough for me.
