    Good grief? Can't say I've ever heard anyone say that out loud. Have you?
    Canada looked like the 51st state in '51 but since then the US looks like part of it becoming the 32nd state of Mexico and the rest becoming the first sovereign country to put itself up for adoption.

    New name ideas for the team: The Wops, The Micks, The Limeys, the Niggers, the Honkies, The Frogs, the Chinks, The Nips, the Hebes, the Fags, the Dykes, the Breeders...

    No one will object to any of those names unlike those oversensitive Injuns.
    Very dramatic post, but irrelevant. Those "names" you came up with are pejoratives and none of them refer to a skin color.

    And who is the "they" you refer to? Is it all Native Americans, including the ones who use "Redskins" for their own schools' sports teams?

    Are all Native Americans offended by the name?

    You don't tell me what do to. The only people that care are offended by everything else in the world as well their opinion matters little to me,
    and since i am american indian or at least part enough to get my card if i wanted. i don't see what the issue is.

    the owner isn't going to change the name. there is no legal manner or court ruling that could make him change the name.
    someone being offended isn't enough of a legal standing to change the name of a brand.

    About as much sense as another person advocating for a name change because they know a few who are offended.
    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.

    Re: Tribal chief: No FedEx until Redskins change team name

    This tribal chief and tribal are more than welcome to boycott Fedex. Considering they are a minority view amongst native americans, and their tribe likely accounts for very little actual business for Fedex, I imagine it'll have little to no impact other than giving the media whose heavily invested in biasedly presenting this issue without an ounce of objectivity to swarm onto the name change issue once again.

    Good luck on their protest, I predict in 6 months they will be back to using Fed-Ex services without the Redskins name changing.

    If they had the means they would have done the same. An example of Native American mismanagement of the environment:

    Bison roaming the plains shoulder to shoulder is not natural. NAs had engaged in allowing the population of bison to grow to an absurd level. They had taken a wild population and basically turned it into a giant exploding herd, having eliminated all other predators.

    The bison-covered plains often portrayed as the natural landscape of the West was, in fact, a population explosion going unchecked. With the death of a majority of NAs, via European disease, the semi-domesticated (on a large scale) bison were left to expand to deforesting and plain destroying proportions.

    Presumably, given the means (and population density), NAs would have been no more concerned with the environment than anyone else.
