    Obama was accused of manufacturing the Bergdahl deal to get the VA scandal off the headlines. Maybe this was done to get the Bergdahl scandal off the headlines. Gotta admit, the timing is definitely curious.

    If so, it's a pretty damning scenario if one has to keep manufacturing events and issues in attempts to get oneself out of the news.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    And then he rounded up the Benghazi suspects to take the focus off the patent office and Redskin thing

    Stranger things have happened. Not sure I'd put anything past any modern day politician anymore.

    Just wondering what the Redskins actually lose if this stands. It's still their property, no one else can use it without their permission. They will sue any that does. So I don't think they will be "forced", as Harry Reid claimed, to change anything.

    No. That's what trademark is, the reserving of a name, logo, etc., for exclusive use. By rescinding the trademark, now ANYBODY can make a Redskins shirt, cap, whatever, with the name and logo and keep all the profits themselves.

    If Snyder's appeal fails, it's a huge chink in the NFL's exclusive rights armor. Redskin shirts, caps, bobble heads, helmets, maybe even broadcasts of the games themselves can suddenly be copied and sold without need to pay a single dime in royalties. That would be a disaster.

    Stranger things have happened. "Wag the dog" is not a fictitious concept in politics.

    How can you have a sports team named after the American Indian in 2014? I am not at all offended by the name, I object to the hypocrisy. There is no other race or ethnicity that has a major sports team named after them. If there were teams like the "Boston Blacks" or the "Cleveland Caucasians" or the "Jersey Jews" or the "Houston Hispanics" complete with caricatures similar to the Cleveland Indians "Chief Wahoo" mascot, people everywhere would lose their mind over it. They'd go berserk. Why the American Indian is allowed to have a team named after their race/ethnicity while others are protected is the ultimate pinnacle of hypocrisy.
