but a great opportunity to poke icky things with a stick

The name should be changed.
So you're going to go ahead and be offended just in case the Native Americans are. And if they're not? Then what?

And I'm going to do it again. There are some posts that will have to go here. I'm not surprised by the heavy activity here recently due to everyone from Bob Costas of NBC to Brian Williams of NBC News to Charles Krautammer of Fox News to several print and online news items opining on this over the last week. I have a feeling we've gone as far as we can here but I'll give this a couple more days and see. There are other threads on P/OC and a couple other threads from this forum had previously been closed.



Ok, let's go with this thread for a few more days and see where we're at. Re-opened.

Now the U.S. government is officially trying to destroy the name Redskins.

Is this even legal?

Don't native Americans have larger problems than this name?

There's three active topics about the Redskins name. Any chance they can be consolidated like all of the threads about Tebow were? As the pressure mounts to get the name changed, I think it could get even uglier here in the future.

no (try real hard to follow), in the post below you referred to them as native Americans, why not call them Redskins, if it is not an offensive word?

So now we have re-opened this thread and that gives us 3 on the same topic. Great. As a fan of the team I want this to end. Not only do I find the name offensive I am sick and tired of discussing a topic that obviously is not going away.

So because I chose 1 out of like 20 possible descriptions that means I am scared to use the term "Redskin"?

Ok

"Redskin"

Are you happy now?
