Phil Simms may have self censored himself from saying the name Redskins but fans show no signs of abandoning the name.

Easy enough to turn the lyrics into “Hell to the Redskins”...
Why should any Redskins fan apologize to anyone?
I could not care less what any NFL team is named. They can change their name to the Washington Trayvons for all I care.
HOWEVER, I care deeply about disrupting the growing power of the tiny minority who seek to rule us through intimidation and force. That's what the battle over the name of the Washington NFL franchise is about.
Tyranny of the minority.
How about the Washington Bullets?
It goes to show how long since you looked at a sports page:)
They’ve been the Wizards a long time now. Also suggests a way to bring Freepathons to an end once and for all. Why not a Sports forum, Jim?
He probably wants to keep his job!ESPN has been on a PC suspension rampage as of late!
Mike & Mike are painful to listen to. They border on MSNBC levels of liberality.
I used to contribute but no anymore. There’re too many morons like you here!
Once they get rid of “Redskins”, they will go after the “Washington” as well.
I hate the Mike and Mike show. They bloviate over them same topic. Ad nauseaum. I do like Golic but listening to pillow biter Greenburg is unbearable. I turn it after 5 minutes
As a Baltimore guy, I loathe the Redskins because of what their dead owner did to keep a team out of Baltimore for years. But this “issue” is maybe the silliest ever. I do enjoy calling them the “Racial Slurs” to tweak their liberal fans, but changing the name would be profoundly stupid.
That's the ticket: call someone a moron while doing it with poor spelling and grammar. Worse yet, you don't contribute to FR?
I smell a ZOT in your future.
I spelled moron correctly!
Sorry to be late with my reply, I’ve been out moroning all day. I don’t understand why you were offended by my reply; NBA teams change their names regularly, it’s easy to miss Supersonics are now the Thunder for instance. That’s all I meant .I actually do think a sports forum would be a good idea for FR, it would provide a continuity of discussion that few other themes provide, that would be good for traffic and donations, I would think. Sorry I offended you.
You are alluding that their are "many morons" at FR? Why don't you GTFO troll?
their = there
I always thought that naming your team after a group or a tribe was because you admired them and wanted your team to be tough like the Redskins or the Indians were. Color me shocked to learn that those people were insulted by it.
No one has ever named their team the Lilly Livers , or The Wimps, or The Cowards. There is a good reason for that.
