If they decide to rename them
the Washington Palefaces
I would not only be un-offended,
I would be honored!

I think someone suggested they keep the name but change the mascot to a potato, then no one would be offended.

You know what is really ridiculous, I actually wasted time and energy getting mad that people actually care about this issue. Get on with your lives, and go hug your kids.

They don’t have to change their name, just their logo…

How ‘bout the Washington ‘Congressmen’, then they can exempt themselves from any (NFL) bylaws and rules that THEY don’t want to live by????

I agree with the name change, it should be changed to the North Virginia Redskins or the Maryland Redskins as current name implies a dysfunctional organization!

Whether they change their name or not makes no difference to me. If they want to live with the controversy, it’s their team and as owners they can do what they want with their property. Too many individuals, groups and organizations today are looking for a reason to be offended by pretty much anything. Change it to the Washington Dumbs**ts and it would be right in line with the approx. 500 morons residing in the big white building with the dome on the top. Native Americans, African Americans, Asians, Latinos, rednecks, old fat white guys, women, hipsters, Boomers, Gen X, Y and Z folks, religious groups of all denominations, Democrats, Republicans lefties and right wing-nuts need to quit taking themselves so seriously and get over whatever is the burr under their saddle. Also if it isn’t OK for someone else to say something about you, it’s not OK for you to say it about yourself. That’s my 2 cents for what it’s worth. I can’t believe that I responded to a non woodworking thread. Oh well, rant over.
