I don't know if they should change their name. But I can say that they should not be forced to change their name.
It doesn't matter what they call the team. As a Dallas Cowboys fan, I'm going to despise them anyway.
They would have a bunch of merch and letterheads to reconfigure. I suppose that that would be rather expensive. On the other hand, Redskins' item would quickly become collectible.
What about the Braves, Chiefs, and Indians? Would Washington become a precedent for all those teams to change their names, or, are those names actually honoring American Indians while Redskins doesn't bestow honor unto American natives?
I voted to change the name. Tennessee bought the Oilers and changed the name to the Titans. Everyone would get used to the new name rather quickly, and our Federal Government seat could be seen as being empathetic towards American natives for the first time ever.
I think the name is fine that way it is. I mean it's been that named since the team entered into the league way go and change it now? Just because some native americans are offended? I don't know why people get all bent out of shape when it comes to skin color. Really bothers me. The next thing we are going to hear is that people are going to want to change the Yankees name because it's offensive. Give me a break.
I'm against marginalizing people via racial stereotypes. I don't care who's offended or not.
Apparently, you support marginalizing people via stereotypes. I think that's your problem and not mine. Perhaps you need to look at the issue for what it's really about and stop with the "who's offended" crap, which I believe we all agree should not be the basis of law or rules.
Personally, I really do not care one iota what a sports team calls themselves. Down here Atlanta had a minor league baseball team many, many moons ago called the Atlanta Crackers, a AA Southern League team. To top that off when we had a Negro League team they adopted the white minor league teams name and became known as the Atlanta Black Crackers.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
