The group late Monday asked the justices to review a lower court decision that favored the NFL team on a legal technicality.

I never knew there was a tribe called the “redskins” and that they trademarked that name. Screw ‘em. What conceivable legal theory allows outsiders to name a private business?
JERRY: Let's bury the hatchet. We smoke um peace pipe.
Sounds like they are on the warpath! Is that racist, my comment, that is.
Since American Indians are not really red in skin color, I think the SCOTUS should rule that they have no “standing.”
The “group” is pathetic.
The only thing they are looking for is money and power. Especially power, because with power comes the money and the mental high of being able to rule others.
I’m a Cowboys fan and I find the Redskins offensive every Sunday!.......and sometimes on Monday nights and Thursdays!........
You got that right. Which made it particularly hard to watch them play the Giants. I couldn’t root for them no matter what even if that would “help” the Cowboys, had to root for blood :)
The “group” is probably 3 guys with 1 computer. Thats how the greenies started...
Actually,I won't...because "paddy wagon" doesn't offend me.I'm bigger than that.
This just in, a group from Mumbai is suing American Indians for stealing their name.
The right not to be offended of course. I think it's in the new and improved Positive Progressive Bill of Rights for Social Justice.
Obama’s diversity racist court pick can be counted on for a vote against the redskins.
