    Redskins

    Redskins defend team name in response to Obama's comments - CBSSports.com

    "The Redskins respect everyone. But like devoted fans of the Atlanta Braves, the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Blackhawks (from President Obama's hometown), the fans love their team and its name and, like those fans, they do not intend to disparage or disrespect a racial or ethnic group," Davis continued. "The name ‘Washington Redskins' is 80 years old -- its history and legacy and tradition. The Redskins' fans sing 'Hail to the Redskins' every Sunday as an expression of honor, not disparagement."
    Now if they can just win some games.

    How about this - Notre Dame changes its name from the Fighting Irish to something else, then I'll get on board with the Redskins to change their name.

    Also, I saw a report on CNN a few months ago that most Native Americans couldn't care less about the Redskins using the name. This is far more about a few whites having to drum up false guilt and tears about something so they can try and impose their will on an organization that makes a lot of money.

    where in that statement did Agronomist say he supports the name. The issue of the name has a place and time to be discussed but not when we are in the middle of a government shutdown.

    But there is a difference between an irish catholic university using the term fighting irish, and a non-native american organization using the term redskins. The other problem with the Washington Redskins is it isn't just a native american mascot, but a somewhat derogatory term for native americans. It would be like a pro-team or college team calling themselves "the darkies"

    Re: Redskins

    Seems like a matter of time before they change that name. Braves, Indians, Blackhawks ... poor comparisons. If Snyder can get cover from the league office, I think he will do it.

    I think he was referring to fighting irish in the sense they would get slovenly drunk and in fights back in the day. There are also several non catholic irish who may not like the Domers Name.
