    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.

    They still own the name, and still have the exclusive right to use the name/logo, etc... The federal trademark isn't required for them to defend the use of their property. They didn't lose the property, or their mark.

    It's still a dent in the NFL armor.

    What could they possibly change the name to that wouldn't suck? There is no replacing the "Redskins" name.
