    When did these little fucking minorites start to get such power? Fuck them all. I guarantee you if you took the entire Native American population and asked for their opinion 95% or more of them couldn't give two fucks.

    So, they've probably had these trademarks for 50 years. I wonder how the trademark office can justify canceling them now.

    Snyder will fight this. The leftists in this country are at a point where they feel entitled to unilaterally take action like this. Frightening.

    Snyder will cave as soon as he starts to lose sponsors.

    problem is..there will be a big backlash amongst the Redskins actual fans (you know the ones who go to and watch the games) if he caves. Right now he is in a no win situation.

    he hasn't though, this has been an issue for decades now and they haven't lost any meaningful money from sponsors. FedEx and Papa Johns are in for the long-haul. The fact is taht the NFL color combinations are copyrighted as well so anything using that color combination will still be in violation.

    Snyder's neighbor trademarked the Washington Bravehearts last year. Potentially the gayest sports team name of all time. Pelican fans will be happy to relinquish the title.

    as a Skins fan and season ticket holder, i don't blame Snyder for whatever he does. i absolutely despise that man for what he's done with the team since ownership but also recognize how hard he's fought against any name-change. he's made it very clear that he won't do it. if it gets to a point where he does have to, most fans understand that he was up against a brick wall and had very little choice. he'll fight and appeal until he has no other options so i don't blame him if it does happen. there's only so much he can do when the minority interests are lining up to fight you

    For some reason, there is a new push. Sponsors will drop out if/when they see the tide start to turn. There is no loyalty with the sponsors.

    If I was Snyder, the only way I would rename the team is if the NFL paid me $100million re-branding fee, to cover costs of changing everything and marketing the new name. Other than that, if the stadium is sold out, there is no reason.

    for me, it's not a new push, it's just a little extra energy in the latest push. this is something we in the area have heard about every..single...season for as long as i can remember. this year it's definitely got a lot more media attention and this certainly doesn't help. i don't think the big sponsors are going anywhere, they have too much invested in it. you're right..if they did, it would be an ENORMOUS motivator for Snyder to change his tune but it won't happen that way.
