Default Redskins name change?

Say it ain't so. My vote goes to NO. It'll always be the Redskins, why change it because a handful of whiners don't like it. (Fact, Redskins was a term invented by the Natives themselves to distinguish themselves from Whites.)

I live in DC so this is pretty big new here.

Many native american "whiners" find it very offensive as it has been used as a derogatory term against them for a long time. I honestly don't know what it's origins are but I grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada and I witnessed a boy fight another boy in school for being called that exact name. He was being bullied and it lit a fuse. It is a sore spot and for you to write them all off as "whiners" is quite frankly ignorant.

Exactly. It doesn't affect anyone except, albeit understandably, Redskins fans. If a little more education and discussion was made more public I don't think many people would get defensive over what they perceive to be over-sensitive minorities.

It is rather hypocritical by the NFL that they get pissed off no black GMs or head coaches are hired, yet they continue to ignore the issue about the Redskins.

So teams should feel ashamed that the guys they feel are right for certain jobs happen to be white, but it's okay to offend Native Americans?

HOW IS IT ANYMORE OFFENSIVE THAN THE CLEVELAND BROWNS?

Or what about the Chiefs! That's a Native name! Or how about the Jets? 9/11?

90% of natives don't care about the name, look it up. As many Natives care as white people.

No way a team older than us changes their name.
