Talk to the members of those Nations and we would tell him like we have told the Supreme Court, newspapers, pollsters, and other surveyors, that we are NOT offended by the name Redskins. Please stop saying its offensive.
[View Full Quote]Iím one of the people you think is offended by the teamís name or the logo on the helmet. What would anger me more is to see the likeness of the warriors of old removed from the helmet. As a boy it was the team I was drawn to and is the team when presented with the other team helmets. Many Nation members are drawn to it, and to add a bow on top, itís rival are the Cowboys. Itís sport, its fun, and itís insulting for you to tell me what I should be insulted over, when the name and logo are held in high regard amongst my friends and family. I understand that some are put out by it, but an overwhelmingly majority love the logo and name.
RG3 please do not come against the name, and please keep that Brave on your helmet!"
......which can be expected from all the washington fan boys. Face reality brah, the name WILL be changed: it isn't a question of if, but when it happens. I think they should go with FORESKINS......the mascot would be a riot......very appropriate for a team owned by Snyder, don't you think?
