    How about instead of having the Redskins change their names, we just change other teams' names? You know, create the Whiteskins, the Brownskins, the Yellowskins...

    unbelievable, A trademark holder, who used all due diligence, paid all fees, kept it in force, is overturned on the WHIM of some board.

    An administrative law judge can do that, but to leave it to a bunch of bureaucrats?? Government work means never having to say you're sorry.

    Too bad, we capriciously removed your intellectual rights for you, you loose because we caved to PC.

    To be fair, individuals here and there have been fighting the name for many years. It's just getting greater attention currently, likely because the Redskins became nationally relevant again recently. Not surprising, the last time this got a lot of coverage was during the Redskin's Super Bowl era; however, news was not nearly as ubiqutious as it is now.



    Tell me this was a joke as opposed to a legitimate statement. The "Cracker" in Cracker Barrel isn't referring to white people.
    I see it as a case of "political correctness gone mad".

    There certainly are an enormous number of them.

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

    Of the two of us I'm the only one being objective. You are debating on the emotion of the topic and how it makes you feel.

    Cool. It is a very narrow goal. Have you had any successes that you know of?

    Only a few are worthy to be ignored. Congratulations. You appear to be worthy.
