    Between this and that Duck Dynasty stuff I have hope that maybe we looking to crawl out of this "I'm offended" bullshit being important.

    NBC especially invested SO much time into this - Costas must be fuming that no one cares about his opinion.

    They should change their name to the Bottom Feeders of the NFC East. They should also look for an RGIV that doesn't suck.

    Good topic there. Not that I think they should change the name but what could we change it to? The Washington Mudsharks maybe?

    Do you know Peter King from SI? I totally stopped reading his shit after he declared all high and mighty that he wouldn't call them the Redskins anymore. If I see him on TV I change the channel.

    I can't find the link to the story or video but the whiny cunts were on Outside the lines on ESPN.
    After they whined about how hurtful and horrible all the mascot names were the interviewer asked them why native American school use these names.
    It was the ole we can you use them but you can't argument......:jj:

    2 ways the Redskins name will be changed:

    1) When people stop filling the seats at the stadium

    2) When the NFL offers a $100million "re-branding fee" to Daniel Snyder.

    Short of them happening, the name will stay.

    Although there is a rumor that Snyder's neighbor trademarked "Washington Bravehearts", but that is gayer than the Pelicans.

    I am Native American and I really could care less...don't even think about it. They suck anyways! In Minnesota most of the high schools had to get rid of their Indian names and I think the University of North Dakota is losing their Sioux name. Whatever...people need to get over themselves. Ever been to D.C.?...half the town is a fucking ghetto. Their are plenty of other more important things people could be bitching about:smokin:
