Change needed in Washington...

I'm not talking about politics at the moment....but the Washington FL team.

It's time for Commissioner Roger Goodell to work with Dan Snyder and change the name of the Washington Redskins to something non-offensive to Native Americans. I am not a Native American myself, but for many years I believe this should have been addressed.

Remember the NBA Washington Wizards were known before as the Washington Bullets...somebody stood up and said something.

It's not only the Redskins...

The Tomahawk chop "War Chant" you hear is also used by many teams Braves, Chiefs, Indians, or Seminoles can be demeaning to Native Americans.

In any case, change is needed in Washington...change the Redskins name to something else.

No, demeaning is when you kill the entire Native American population, take there land and give the few remaining left a couple gambling casinos.

So the Redskins should change their name because 7 people are offended by it?
hell no they shouldnt change it. I dont think they named the team the Redskins to purposely offend Indians, people are jsut bored and need to get over it
I thought from the title you meant they needed a new owner.

I was going to nominate Oakland as having a bigger need!!
Won't somebody... please, please... think of the children!

While we're at it:

Change "Giants" too; it offends little people.
Change "Saints" too; it offends sinners.
Change "Dolphins"; it offends underappreciated porpoises.
Change "Browns"; it offends the color Beige, and Mexicans and Filipinos and Mulattoes.
Change all teams that have a bird as a mascot, as it offends worms.

I don't see how naming your football team after something is offensive, quite the opposite it's an honor. As these names are symbols of the strength of your team.
Ur a f*g

There's a large Asian community in San Francisco. Let's honor them by renaming the 49ers as the San Francisco Yellowskins.

There's a large African-American community in Oakland. Let's honor them by renaming the Raiders as the Oakland Blackskins.

There's a large Caucasian community in Green Bay. Let's honor them by renaming the Packers as the Green Bay Paleskins.

Those are great ideas.
