    Lil' Danny's mouth is just about the right height - if he's on his tippy toes. :eek:

    That's right, keep looking to the past for solace.

    Funny that Skins fans fight against a name change in this thread, then get on others about holding on to the past.

    Well, I write this as a complete liberal and very proud of that (well almost complete), also believe in fiscal responsibility, but isn't this a bit ridiculous?

    Washington Redskins - actually wonder how they got that name to begin with?? Guess I could go look it up. But to me, what is the issue???

    Were the native Indians decimated by the folks coming into this country? Well, the answer would be yes. If you look back into history, that is clear. But has that been the case of many people in this world. Let me name them, the list is too long.

    But I simply do not understand this nonsense with the team name that has been around for decades. Some logic here folks.

    Sometimes I think politically correct goes a little over the top at times, and to me this is one of those cases.

    I think they should shut down all of these "reservations" and let people assimilate into the culture that exists. I do not know the legal implications of that. There are still people taking about the Civil War, can we get over it already??? In my mind all rather nonsense.

    Can we find something better to talk about???

    One nation, under god. America, America. Can we please stop all this nonsense???

    Shared a field with baseball's Boston Braves; named the football team the "Braves" (used to be the Tornadoes)...then moved to new stadium shared with baseball's Boston Red Sox; head coach William Henry "Lone Star" Dietz came up with the new name "Redskins" (some credit owner GPM for the name's creation)...basically a rather pragmatic take on the whole thing...they were kind of piggybacking off of baseball's popularity.

    Just like Skins fans are hanging on to last year, which is also in the past. It is unlikely that the 16 or 18 game spread will ever be reversed (or at the very least, in a current Skin fan's lifetime) so I can understand the inferiority complex that they have acquired and cultivated for decades. It's like quicksand, the more you try to fight it, the deeper you get. Best to just accept your proper place in the historical pecking order and move on.

    Do you?

    Also, for your information one century = 100 years. So what exactly is your point? That is from THIS century. I'll let that slide though as you learned something new today.

    I'm guessing you meant "recently" so go ahead and lay out for me what the Redskins have accomplished "recently"?

    You have last season, congrats. They you lost in the wild card round. We've done that to. Yay!!

    No, A century is 100 years. THIS century is from 2000 on (or 2001, if you want to be technical lol).
