Sounds like there just needs to be some re-education. Has this been brought up by the front office whenever this debate arises?

Why would this idiot (who's obviously not Native American) even care in the first place about the name?

I don't think he actually cares about the name, but he is loving the chance it gives him for grandstanding and publicity.

I'd think that Vincent Gray would be more concerned about issues in his own life. Wish I could post an article I found about him but naughty language in the title...don't want to get in trouble :)

I guess anything to take attention off him for a period of time.

Rename FedEx Field while you're at it. Tacky name.

1. RG3/Latest Player of Awesomeness Temple of Judgement
2. Cowboy Castration Center (CCC; family friendly name)
3. Hail Colosseum

Actually all joking aside, something with Colosseum does sound pretty awesome.

Not to mention a poll among Native Americans a few years ago showed that 91% either liked the name or didn't care....
