Where are you at on this whole team name change thing?

Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

^^ You may want to change that reference in your penultimate sentence to "Black People". The term you used is pretty much the antithesis of your entire point.

^ This. I think the NFL team name is probably the ONLY use for the word these days. Like they all say, words change in meaning!

I feel completely the same way about Krauthammer (as I'm sure some people here feel about the President). I just thought it was a pretty honest piece of writing from a conservative point of view, and I like that it didn't resort to histrionics or extreme(ly unlikely) examples of what might happen if the name was changed.

Dan Snyder needs to grow a set, get in front of the media and tell the world "NO, I'm not changing the name and will not ever consider it." Hey Obama , shouldn't you be worried about a country that is in the toliet instead of professional sports issues that don't concern you? Don't like the name?? Then stay the hell away from the games and don't watch. Washington DC , you got an issue too?? How about we pack this show up and relocate to Vegas or LA where the real money is to be made?!?

Snyder would never ever be man enough to say that, and he doesn't have too. He is always laughing all the way to the bank.....

Snyder already said his piece on the whole name change thing and he's not backing down from it. He said he'll fight it until the end.

I can't change it. It might offend the African-Americans. Or the Natives. :lol:

What are you dummies talking about??? This is what Snyder told the media just six months ago:

"We'll never change the name," Snyder told USA Today. "It's that simple. NEVER -- you can use caps."


So yeah he would be man enough, and he apparently doesn't need to grow a pair after all.

People need to stop with the Obama crap...he was asked a question by a reporter and simply said if he was the owner he'd "think about changing the name"...not that he would, or that Snyder should, just that if he were the OWNER he would consider it. He didn't "weigh in" at all, he simply answered a question.

I went out to start my car this morning and I saw bird crap on it.. I blamed Obama for this. Not sure how or why, but it felt like the patriotic thing to do. :lol:
