Skip to comments.Thank You Bob Costas for that free DNC infomercial (VANITY)

So, at halftime of the Sunday Night Football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington REDSKINS, Bob Costas decided to lay down some wisdom on America. He started out okay in his discussion of Obama's new pet project, to pressure Washington into changing the name of the football team, but almost at the end when you were suffiently sucked in, he threw out the bombshell.....the use of the term "Redskins" is indeed offensive...a nasty slur.
And there you have it. Just like Global Warming, um, I mean Climate Change, the debate about the term "Redskins" is now settled science. Expect for Washington to be changing their name very soon.
If they did change the name, many of the fans will want all the new gear with the new name on it, which might make their decision for them. Is anyone else using the names pussy, hummingbirds or transgenders?
How ‘bout the Washington First Immigrants? I wonder who that would “offend”.
Turned it off as fast as I could. Serves me right for watching anything on NBC. I won’t be making that mistake again.
Funny. I thought Redskins was a type of peanut.
What a grim, gloomy mind these liberals have. They’ve appropriated a sort of warped Puritanism without the Christianity to redeem it.
MOST (not all, but by far, most) traditional paleface references to American Indians by “Redskin” have been in unambiguous honor of these American Indians.
Naming it after a President that would be ashamed to have such a cesspool of corruption, incompetence, and thievery after him?
They should call it Kennedy, Sharpton, Clinton, Obama, or something more apt.
Certainly the "D.C." part should be pronounced like the word "disease".
Bob Costas creeps me out. He is the worst announcer on TV and has outlived his welcome by a decade or more.
I always turn the poisoned dwarf off when he appears on TV.
He’s got the skin of Nancy Pelosi.
What idiots like him don’t understand is name like Redskins or Indians or Warriors is meant as a sign or admiration - They are trying to put forth a image of being tough, being fighters so how the F is that “insulting”? This is just more pc crap by the fascists.
Give the guy a break!! He’s about 4 feet tall. :-)
Andre is offended.
Heh, that will be the next PC correction...
“Bob Costas” is now a nasty slur.
Realistically, this is a losing fight.
Little Bobby just wants attention. The best thing to do is to totally ignore him. If he’s so offended by the name “Redskins,” he should buy the team and name it any PC thing he wants. Put your money where your constantly-flapping mouth is, Bob.
No one talks about a name change except for Progressive sports talkers.
If the want to change the name of DC’s football team, I propose the Washington Red Droners
If you follow Bob’s logic, he shouldn’t own a BMW. What a hypocrite! typical liberal to make a problem where it doesn’t exist!
I figure that with all the pc fascism we now live under, some football team will be forced to take one of those names or one equally as awful.
Would the name, ‘Washington Scalpers’ be inappropriate?
Very well put. I never thought to compare libs to Puritans, but the comparison is apt. They both want to ban Christmas, but for different reasons.
Doubt that’s his hair..rug or plugs.
Bob “Napolean” Costas needs to go, horrible imp of a “man”
They should name them the Whores and Thieves so everybody knows they are from D.C and not Washington state.
Funny. I thought Redskins was a type of peanut
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
They were ‘advised’ a couple of years ago to keep everything the same but put a POTATO where the “Indian” appears.
Baking Potato for the Large Logos
And a few French Fries for the smaller ones.
And to give it some ‘life’, the potato could have a couple of ‘eyes’....
NBC IS an around the clock DNC infomercial.
But seriously, the Washington Redskins should change their name to the DC Gangstas. That way, the offense to the DC establishment will be intentional and deserved.
He keeps his tattoos covered well. Apparently he’s covered from head to toe in ink.
They should name them the Whores and Thieves
= = = = = = = = = = = =
Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves and it will give Cher an opportunity to claim ‘rights’ to the name.
She can bring ‘Chaz” with her and both of them could be mascots....or tackling dummies
Man, I could really get on a jag about Puritans... and the related Calvinists... now I got to respect the role that they played in carrying Christianity in an American context, and they got some very important things right too, one of them being the security of the saved (a simple gospel principle). Christ uses flawed vessels. But we can do a lot better than this (though, we must be warned, lest we pride ourselves, it will still not be perfect this side of heaven).
Anyhow when you take all the BAD stuff about Puritanism and Calvinism and snatch Christ away from it... you pretty much get today’s liberal.
(Personally, I can’t see how any Christian can miss the humongous opportunity that Christmas gives. Thanks to Christmas carols, the gospel STILL is heard every year in supposedly secular places.)
He wants Oklahoma to change their name too, since it means “Red people.”
How about changing name to whiteskins?
I never knew.
tell them here:
The Washington Prostitutes might be accurate although prostitutes may be offended.
Pray America is Waking Up
People watching all that liberal cesspool do nothing but enable the nfl to keep raking in the money.Just like sending your kids to lib/indoctrination colleges.
Just a POS and nothing more.
If Costas was serious he should have refused to work this game so he wouldn’t have to utter the team’s name.
I thought it was his lucky Howard Cosell toupee.
Seriously, I think that the anti-Redskins are saying that sports announcers should not say the word "Redskins."
So Bob, when you going to go after INDIANapolis, or INDIANa
How long before the scumbags demand that the Dallas Cowboys change their name to the “Dallas Brokebacks”?
Gee it hasn’t bothered Bob all the other times he’s reported on the Redskins in his long, long, long, long, sports broadcasting “career”....
Bob is just an opportunistic, get-on-board little slut.
How bout the Dallas Undocumented Workers?
They should use the BASEketball names:
San Francisco Ferries
New Jersey Informants
Or name them after the Obama regime: Washington Megalomaniacs
