    Even if they all are honestly offended, five is way too small a number to dictate policy like this. And even if you try to expand this into others who might be offended yet not inclined to act, studies suggest their numbers are still a very small minority.

    ETA: PETA is a larger group, and they probably disapprove of team names like Eagles, Lions, Bears, Rams, Tigers, and so on. Should we mindlessly pander to them simply because they have an opinion and are vocal about it?
    Good point. Maybe there is another reason, like that IRS thing. If the government wants a vendetta against certain people or groups they have many ways to carry it out.

    Wait..I need four more people that are also offended for action to happen. Is anyone else offended? Come on guys, I only need four people that agree with me.
    And let's allow Mr. Fry to once again remind us about what being offended is worth...................

    Re: Patent office cancels Redskins trademarks

    This whole Redskins thing has gotten boring.

    I, personally, find the name ridiculous, nonsensical and insensitive...but I believe in free speech above all else.

    But there is no point whining about it as clearly the owner is not going to change the name until he is financially pressured to do so.

    I would also add, that in addition to the name nonsense, imo, he is the worst NFL owner with a proven track record for negative intervention and incompetence. Good owners are best seen and not heard.

    Chalk one up for Rush Limbaugh... He predicted back on January 9th that this was how the Obama Administration would go after the Redskins

    LOL. So there you go. You can't address the basic issue of the government arbitrarily damaging a legitimate business, because they felt like it, so you return to 5th grade.

    Probably should have left it alone, rather than prove your inability to look at the issue objectively.

    This is an indication of the heart of a tyrant. It is okay for the government to behave improperly, tyrannically, as long as it is against people you don't like.

    I wonder how many 'Redskins' were in on this decision, or was it just a matter of White guilt transference.

    This time the people who voted for this need to lose their jobs.
