    Yeah, he's self made, as opposed to inheriting money. The dude has some serious ambition. He's not even 50 yet.
    Yeah the Wallboard business with his sister. That was his start, seeded with money from his father by taking out a second mortgage on a property that he owns in England. Technically, that's not self made, but still impressive.

    ...then the name would likely change to the Warriors. The native american references would likely remain, though it may go to the old spear logo from a few decades ago. The fight song would likely remain. Chief Zee would likely remain. And the NFL would still end up losing money, because with the lack of trademark protection a plethora of fans would flock to 3rd party "Redskins" merchandise with current players names as opposed to supporting the bull**** name change.

    No they wouldn't. If they change the name it will be something gay like the Washington Football Wizards, or something like that.

    No. You and I can be on the same page on some things, but I will not see political correctness as normal. I see it as a government driven method developed to control and manipulate the people for some objective that I have to believe is not something that freedom loving people will see as either normal or a good thing.

    This is very common throughout the ages. You are right. It is not a good thing but it is a common thing.

    The trademark patent old spear logo is what was just cancelled.

    You keep making this asinine, idiotic comment in thread after thread. I continually inform you why this is an asinine and idiotic comment. And you repeatedly ignore that response and then just make it again.

    Niggers and Redskins are not analogous words.

    I define "self-made" as becoming rich through your own efforts. Hugh Hefner is self made, even though his mother loaned him $1000 to start Playboy.

    To my understand, the only trademark that was killed off was that of the team name "Redskins".

    So, if they weren't going to fight it, anyone could go out and print a "Washington Redskins" T-Shirt or Jersey with "Griffin III" and 10 on the back.

    I don't believe the Logos themselves were part of the trademark that got stricken down...only the name.
