    I find your use of the word "retarded" offensive. Couldn't you have used "mentally challenged"?

    The is no right for any company to have a trademark. There is no requirement that any company have a trademark. A trademark gives a company the "benefit" to sue to protect their image or word in federal court.

    The DC team lost that privelege.

    How about if he is Apache? Does he still have to change it? (Disclaimer: I know you were being amicably sarcastic.)

    They didn't lose it yet. They retain the trademark until all the court cases are settled. After that, they either lose the trademark patent or keep it.

    I think you should have to use a different word than 'challenged' as those of us who challenge ourselves are really hurt that somebody might see us as mental.

    Yes but now every T-shirt maker in China can copy their logo and sell it, taking revenue from the NFL.

    Why of course! By his username, he's saying that Apaches are rats! We can't have that!

    Apache is the name of a tribe. How is the name disparaging? What tribe is the redskins?
