Tony Dungy too. It won't take long for this to be the case for most of the tv guys.

I love that he was not ordered to by a producer but rather took it upon himself to do this.  I will no longer bring up the PS of him wearing a ball gag in the NFL threads.
 
2014-08-19 05:36:28 AM
Why? What's so wrong about referring to people who sunbathe for too long?

They should all agree on an embarrassing replacement name to use.  That would put the pressure on them to finally change it.

Why not? I'm pretty sure he already does on a regular basis.

The best part of this is the pure butthurt that will flow from skins fans.

Yes, wussing out to the politically correct or else airheads is just like running into a burning building to save a child.
And if you don't agree you are a racist.

I know a guy who is so PC that he once reflexively referred to people from India as Native Americans, and didn't realize what he'd done until someone pointed it out.

Good for him.

1. I don't think Redskin is a pejorative, any more than black or white. I'm not old enough to remember the genocide of aboriginal tribes by whitey. Redskin means the same to me as "Indians", it's a tribute to the original peoples of this land. Maybe its regional, like Pop vs Soda. I'm more offended by Pirates and Raiders. srsly.

2. Fark Phil Simms, the blowhard twit must be paid by the word.
 
2014-08-19 08:57:39 AM
He should also avoid saying the names for the Chicago and Dallas teams as they are homophobic slurs.

Fark is a pathetic group of simpletons following the herd, you should know this by now.

Phil Simms sucks anyways no big loss to not hear him speak.

When would he even get the chance? I mean, why would CBS have its #1 broadcasting team on a Washington game?

Anyone that cries about "political correctness" is a racist. Everyone else simply considers it "not being a dick".

The skins were his division rivals.  They must have kicked his ass a few times.

I've taken handily to calling them the Washington Racists. It has a nice flow to it and it works since I'm used to starting with the R sound.

agreed. In a way thanks to the Washington Redskins the word as transformed for a hateful racist moniker to a positive one. 

Is the word still actually used in a hateful way?

JerseyTim: When would he even get the chance? I mean, why would CBS have its #1 broadcasting team on a Washington game?


In passing. In sentences like "Denver, coming off a 45-7 whipping of the Washington R******s last week", or "He was cut by the Washington R******s in the preseason, but then the Colts picked him up and he's been sacking quarterbacks left and right", or "It's 38-0 in the 4th quarter, let's talk about teams with a legit chance to go 0-16, like for instance the Washington R******s".
 
2014-08-19 09:28:56 AM
The honest test would have been to not publicize his decision then see if anyone noticed.
 
2014-08-19 09:32:44 AM
Perhaps Simms would prefer the Washington Savages?  For the umpteenth time idiots, the term refers to folks who painted their faces (which are not in any way red) with vermillion paint when they went on the warpath.  It was to scare the enemy, period.  Freaking stupid people don't even known that the "native Americans" actually have mainly European mitochondria anyway (with a smattering of Phoenecian (sp?) etc.  The distinction is lost only on the stupid, like Simms, who has a room temperature IQ.  People need to read Charles Mann's "1491" and "1493" and quit worrying about this kind of symbolic crap.  Snyder owns the team, his to decide.

Which tells me your are actually a racist because you see this as a racial issue and it isn't.
 
2014-08-19 09:34:16 AM
Phil should keep his eyes closed while calling the game as well.  Seeing 'Redskins' on the jerseys and viewing the helmet logo might make his vagina sore.

That may have been the origin of the word, but it was subsequently used to describe Indian scalps in bounty notices.  I could see how that could be offensive.

I'd really have to care to be frustrated about this, all political correct BS is moronic and does nothing in the end. Its all about getting your name out there.

I'm pretty sure Simms is familiar with Mann's work

The Redskins should repay the kindness by restricting access to those that want to play this game.  Bar Phil Simms and other from the stadium, team facilities and players and let's see who wins..

history shows that racists in america fight long bitter battles but eventually lose, bit by bit ,inch by screaming,wailing,crying inch.

MartinD-35: For the umpteenth time idiots, the term refers to folks who painted their faces (which are not in any way red) with vermillion paint when they went on the warpath.


Except that in 1933, George Preston Marshall said in an interview that the name was just an attempt to lure fans of the Boston Braves baseball team to their games. So, actually, it's in reference to people referencing painted faces...

MartinD-35: Snyder owns the team, his to decide.


And the fans can just as easily make the decision to ignore/avoid/boycott his decision to stick by his racist name. Freedom of speech includes the freedom to react to speech.

MartinD-35: Perhaps Simms would prefer the Washington Savages?


So would I, if they got the mascot right:

And the term Cotton Picker refers to folks who picked cotton in the South. It was to help bolster the Southern economy, period. Since it doesn't have anything to do with the person's color, it is totally fine to use it, too!
