Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is not a particularly admirable man. He tends to treat the Redskins as if hes playing fantasy football. They tend to lose more often than they win. Hes not exactly a fan favorite. But Snyder isnt taking the U.S. Patent Offices ruling against his team lying down.
The team has released a statement saying the ruling will have no effect at all on the teams ownership of and right to use the Redskins name/logo. Theyre correct, but it does allow others to use the name as they wish the just cant trademark it either.
Which, in the short term at least, means were likely to see a whole lot of pirated Redskins merch hit the streets. Dan Snyder just wont make any money from it.
For its part, the NFL is trying to be Switzerland. Its not going to say anything in support of or opposition to the Patent Offices decision.
At some point, the Washington Redskins will be forced to change their name. Its only a matter of time. The hostile occupying force that is now the Beltway cannot abide anything less than total capitulation from the rest of us. After that, maybe Washington will see fit to force Oklahoma (translation: red people) to officially call itself Texas Pan-Shaped Hat.
Snyder could have some fun with a Redskins renaming contest, though. Twitter has lit up with alternative names. Snyder could poll test them to see which ones capture Americans current attitudes.

Washington Potato Skins?
Washington Native American bloodthirsty Savages.
The Navajos of Red Mesa High School don’t mind the name Red Skins.
Only liberal whites, satanists, have a problem with it.
That way they don’t have to change their jersey color or their helmet decal
Just call them the “SKINS”, and make sure the letters are bright RED.
To honor the people who represent us in Washington DC. You know; useless pieces of dicks.
Name the after Harry Reid: Washington Liars
the Washington “Bitch Set Me Ups”
I vote Washington Criminals. Simple, but accurate.
Just Washington. Dan Snyder has said he’ll never change the name of the Redskins so fine, don’t do it. If the league forces him to drop the Redskins name then don’t choose a new one. Refuse to be called anything but “Washington” and send a message that way.
If they change their name: The Washington Cave Ins.
Conservative radio host was just booted off of radio for daring to say the word; “REDSKIN”.
