    Gfunk, riggo, how would you like it if we termed you guys idiots? or Redskin fans in general? just like American-Indians were called Redskins because of their color, we would call you guys idiots because of what spews forth from your mouth, you guys wouldn't like that too much would you? and I'm sure you wouldn't say, "well, they're just calling us 2 guys idiots, what's the big deal?"

    first off, I don't catch feelings like that, call me what you like

    we as a people are becoming too damn sensitive, it sickens me

    and second, the word "redskin" has many meanings, including refering the red war paint some Indian tribes painted on their faces in time of war

    it's not always in reference to this supposid "red" skin that American Indians (which are of Asian descent) supposidly have
    I don't see the comparison

    what about the Indians that love the team and its name and take pride in it, do we just ignore them because they don't speak up and waste time in American courts?

    Please? Are you dumb or just stupid?

    Is it alright to call a black man a N-word? And your analogy about some rancher? Stupid as hell! Cowboys and Rodeos, and ranchers are not racist remarks, and have nothing to do with race.

    There are all kinds of races that are Cowboys or ranchers! Blacks, whites, Native American Indians, oriental, etc...

    Freaking amazing!

    Redskin was a term coined from the color of the Native-American's skin

    on what invitation? sorry, last place I ever wanna visit in America is Arizona

    I'll wear my jersey anywhere I damn please in the country, proudly

    the Redskins are only the team and organization, not every Indian in this country... that's a correlation you're making, not me

    if a few people take offense to it, so be it, like I said, you can find someone offended by anything and everything in this country

    I do what I can.

    Honestly, it's a little too easy... the name is indefensible, and all they have to fall back on is sophistry.

    You are correct, the most common definition is to describe the scalp of an Indian that was taken to record a bounty.

    No it doesn't.

    It also isn't a variety of peanut as one of your fans once told me the team is named after a peanut variety native to the DC area.

    Here ya go...Link...notice the words "disparaging" and "offensive." The fact of the matter remains that word was used by anti-Native American people and it was not meant to complement them.

    It has little to do with being a redneck and more to do with blindness to reality due to a fondness for the team.

    I'm sure the people defending the name aren't "rednecks" they're just passionate fans. There's no need to resort to slurs to point out the error of their ways.

    Find us any link to the origin of the word and prove us wrong. When you can't find that origin, let us know.

    5 stars- one? you realize you could find one of every type of person that is offended by any time of name or label.

    i would suppose that just about all 'blacks', 'african americans' (whatever isnt offensive) are offended by the n word. why is it that most native americans- according to published polls- dont feel the same about 'redskin'?
