    Snyder doesn't need the money. He just doesn't want the government to shove him around and he's as sick as some of the rest of us are at this ****.

    Do you have case law for this? I would love to see it if you do.

    Absolutely.

    No argument that they have options for other names but that isn't the point. The power of the federal government is being used inappropriately to force that change. It should scare the hell out of everyone.

    He shouldn't have to!!!

    The patent office & federal government have more important
    things to do than worry about a 70 yr old football team name!!!!

    If they don't they need to be shut down.

    Is this a rhetorical question? I assume so since that's what we've discussed. Or are powerful people not allowed to voice their opinions, just Native Americans?

    So what? They have a name. And people with a stupid agenda have been trying to get them to change it for a long time… the Patent office has done this to them before, and it went to court and the patent office was found to have acted wrong and had to reverse their actions. Period.

    I said this before, I don't agree with the government acting this way. However, that it happened to Daniel Snyder makes it so much easier to laugh about it. The guy is a total dickwad.
