The name is very offensive to millions of Americans.

Change it to the Maryland Redskins.

I propose the “Washington Racketeers”.

Seems more congruent to the town.

I read somewhere else that they should keep the name Redskins and just change their mascot to a potato!

I would counter that with the Washington Anui. If Anui is the plural for Anus.

Or the “Sphincters.”

If you can’t say Redskins, you can’t say Warriors either. There have been campaigns in Minnesota and Wisconsin to eliminate that supposedly offensive nickname too.

I have a better idea. How about letting the guy who runs the team, Dan Snyder, decide what he wants to call his team?

I vote to keep the name but change the mascot, icon to Bob the tomato of vegetails fame. Then only those who think it is an insult to Christians would be offended, and of course Christians are fair game so it would not matter if they were offended. The cheer leaders would be the bobetts, except for little Lorain of course. Go redskins, go bobs, go!

They were so embarrassed by the name, they dropped the word, Washington, and are now just called the Redskins.

What I wouldn’t give to be the owner of that team, and call a press conference. I’d say...

“I’ve called this press conference to announce that I have renamed The Washington Redskins. The new name of the team will be The Los Angeles Redskins.”
