From fans to journalists to politicians -- and certainly many of Native American descent -- the Washington Redskins' team nickname is offensive. That much is clear. Congress weighed in this March, leaving some to wonder if these people didn't have anything better to do, but the controversy rolls along. On May 1, David Grosso, an independent District of Columbia councilman, introduced a bill that would have the Redskins changing a name that Grosso says is "racist and derogatory."
No matter where you stand on the issue, there's only one guy who's going to make the call to change the name, and that's team owner Daniel Snyder. And it should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Snyder's headstrong ways that he's not going to change that name anytime soon.

HTTR! Not a Snyder fan in general, but he’s a winner on this issue. He’s been saying this for years.
Yes, but they’ve needed to change the owner for years.
“I can finally say something positive about Dan Snyder”.
LOL.... ain’t that the truth!
When will the bullets change their name?
Doug Farrar is an idiot. Congress has done NOTHING. City Council has done nothing. But Farrar says they have weighed in. Idiot. Nobody cares about this except the few who want the name changed. they should focus their ire on the NAACP! You know what that stands for.
What about the “Washington Elitist Nincompoops”? /s;)

No it’s not. I’m a fan. I’m of American Indian (who aren’t “native”) descent. I’m not offended.

They did - their the Washington Wizards now.
Ouch - their. LOL.
They are, that is.
What about the Washington Senators?
What about the Ottawa Senators?
I never took Latin, but I'm pretty sure their logo isn't a senator.
Here are a few names that would make sense for the current regime:
1) The WASHINGTON STAND DOWNS
2) The WASHINGTON STATE DEPARTMENT COVERUPS
3) The WASHINGTON Why does it matters
4) THE WASHINGTON It was a Video
5) THE WASHINGTON Progressive anti american democrats
6) The WASHINGTON 4 DEAD IN BENHGAZI’s
A few idiots find the name offensive. Fugg ‘em.
I kind of like The WASHINGTON BOHICAS.
The Washington Conspirators.
Hey, that’d actually be popular.
Danny boy, I used to like him until he started to blame everyone else for his team’s woes. Lucky for him that the latest pile of poo he stepped into finally turned into gold n the form of Bobby (as his mother calls him).
I’m glad they’re resisting this but he won’t own the team forever and if the league is still around long enough for him to sell, the new owners will change the name. I hear Whooping Cranes is available.
