WASHINGTON (WJZ)Controversy over the name of Washington, D.C.s football team is growing. Now a newspaper in Virginia says it wont print the name Redskins. And several schools in D.C. want to ban team jerseys from their classrooms.

I hope the owner of the team holds firm, just for once in my life I would love to see the political correctness brigade LOSE. Unfortunately I figure it will be a death by a thousand cuts and at some point the owner will just say “screw it, change the name” to shut them up...
Wow! I’m a lifelong Cowboys fan but I might just have to become a Redskins fan too. And that hurts.
The USSA is insane.
I hope he does change the name of the Washington Redskins.
I like the sound of the San Antonio Redskins.
I hope the owner moves the team so that the tribes do not have to bear the shame of being associated with Washington PC.
No real shortage of arseholes these days, is there?
Best case scenario — diehard ticket buyers give the PC crowd a big FU
How about the "Fighting Irish"? After all they were named after the Irish immigrant communities penchant to drink a bit too much and brawl in the streets.
This Country has a serious 1st Amendment problem.
This PC hatred and bullying are quite Hitleresque.
I have no affinity for the DC Redskins other than they were once from Boston. However, I’m with Snyder 100%. I think he’s tough enough to say pound sand, forever, if need be. I know the Redskins have enough brand equity to withstand the limp wristed Bob Costas and dopey journo’s that don’t know a false start from offside. It’s important for the political and speech rights of the rest of us that Snyder does NOT say uncle.
I don’t blame them. The ‘skins are terrible this year.
Also add the Padres, because that endorses Christianity.
Dan Snyder should play the video clip of the Obamessiah’s remarks on the Redskins on the stadium jumbotron.
Then he should play a clip of Obama’s fundraising lackey and Oneida “representative” Ray Halbritter, with text overlays explaining the relationship between Halbritter, Obama, Oneida, and the anti-Redskin game.
Then, he should light up the jumbotrong with a two-part cheer:
Barack Obama | FU!
Barack Obama | FU!
We are the Redskins | FU!
As does the St. Louis Cardinals. Christianity. Roman Catholic Christianity.
Stand up to these crisis du jour idiots. They’ll give up, like the fools that protested at Augusta National over the The Masters.
I can see it in the future... A child asks his lib daddies, who proceed to foam at the mouth... “What was an Indian?”
Keep the name, change the mascot and emblem to a potato...
That will shut their pieholes up...
Show them how stupid they really are...
All of a sudden the lefties happily made this a big issue, in order to distract the sheeple again
I say change the name to the “Thinskins” in honor of the GOPe and replace the noble Redskin with Boehner’s weepy face.
And how about the Detroit Lions? The original Christians were gobbled up by Lions in the Colosseum.
The Washington Post-Clovis, Asian Migrants
Ohhh... I didn’t think of that. That would be cool. Move the team to a state that would welcome the “Redskins”! Not that it would stop the let’s-find-a-cause-we-can-exploit crowd.
“How about the “Fighting Irish”? After all they were named after the Irish immigrant communities penchant to drink a bit too much and brawl in the streets. “
They are White. It’s OK to make fun of White people, just not anybody else.
The newspaper in question is an African American targeted weekly. In other words, hobo’s toilet paper.
Need a “like” button.
It’s a business. I guarantee that as soon as it becomes obvious that they are losing money because of the name they will fold faster than flash Gordon in an origami class.
San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, St. Louis, Sacramento; all cities with religious names that have sports franchises. Going to have to relocate all those teams.
Whats the controversy? Just rename them the Washington Politicians and be done with it.
As a Cowboys fan and Conservative, watching this imbroglio unfold in our Nation’s seat of oppression is strangely satisfying. At minimum it’s more entertaining than any Redskins football game, that’s for sure. Much of their fan base is either bound directly to the DC big government leftist-pc complex or a byproduct of that mean machine. Oh, how disenchanting this must be when they’re made to lie in the soiled bed they made. Ideologies have consequences!
Leave it just like it IS! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
The PC people can pound sand. . . . . . . .
Last time I looked, there weren’t any “Red” skins on the team.
Propaganda works. This is textbook propaganda. Programmed “group-think” on a trivial subject, just exercising and testing the machinery. This is exactly how everyday Germans eventually acquiesced to the Holocaust and other atrocities.
Take note people, if you think it cannot happen here, take note.
I never thought of American Indians as an officially Hated Minority before, but I guess they are.
How about the Minnesota Vikings become the Minnesota Whiteskins, then it’ll be even.
Canadians and New Englanders are not yet official Hated Minorities.
This is how the left steps up the issue.
They didn’t get their way...now they go to the teacher unions and the media
But I'm about to order me an RG3 jersey.
If he does, it’ll will embolden them and the floodgates will be opened.
Then all the professional teams across America, High school and college will be under a relentless attack.
Hockey, basketball, soccer whatever has a name that somebody is perturbed by will be a target for litigation without end.
PETA wnants ALL animal names removed from sports teams. I suppose muslims could want all Christian names removed, i.e. a local Christian school has the name Crusaders.
The PC crowd will just start looking for their next victim to harass into submission................
Canucks, Yankees, Celtics, Seminoles, Blackhawks, Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!.................
People are free to be idiots.
We are still free to point out they are being idiots.
Just have them try to answer one question:
Name one sports team that ever picked a name and mascot to denigrate their own team?
You don’t name your team after people or things that you want to make fun of.
To coin a young woman we were told was smarter than she appeared, “That’s retarded, sir.”
The original team was in Boston. The ‘red skin’ name referred to beans................
They may have to rename all of them.
Obamagrad One, Obamagrad Two, ......etc.
The Giants name could be derogatory to short people.
The Eagles name is definitely derogatory to PETA.
As are Cardinals, Lions, Bears, Colts, Dolphins, Jaguars, Panthers, Broncos, Seahawks, Rams, Bengals and any other animal names.
Patriots would be offensive to The Leftards, Saints would be offensive to muslims, Buccaneers and Raiders would be offensive to felons, Cowboys would be offensive to women and Jets, Chargers, 49’ers and Steelers would be offensive to environmentalists.......
