      Should the Washington Redskins change it's team name?

      I was listening to a sports talk radio program and just heard that some more broadcast announcers will no longer call the Washington Redskins by full name, now they will just say Washington. I guess this is the era of PC (politically correctness) but if people are wanting the Redskins removed as it offends some people then where will this stop and what teams will be next on the hit list. I can see the Chicago Blackhawks being one of them. To be properly pc shouldn't the Dallas Cowboys be renamed to the Dallas Cowpersons?

      So what do you think?

      I think changing the name is STUPID!!! Since football began this name has always been around and was never intended to degrade the Indians, Better change some other names also. Just a dam shame with the things screwed up in Washington this is even a concern.

      I think its stupid to not change the name. Think about, as lame as the whole PC thing is, and as much as I object to being forced by mob mentality to conform and succumb to public pressure, what have you got to lose by making the name change? The team stands to lose revenue by holding a hard line, fighting for something that is really pretty lame in the first place.

      It would be better to step up and say, "you know, you're right. let's make this right. and let's challenge some of these others as well."

      The team has been the Redskins for 82 years. For those who want to change the name...GET OVER IT!

      Here's a bistro in VT which took down a sign with the word Bacon on it because one Muslim woman found it offensive. WTF! American citizens are giving up the country to extreme minorities. Whatever happened to the needs of the majority? Meanwhile our country continues in a downward spiral.

      Sort of like the Ole Miss Rebels in college, they did away with the Colonel mascot because it might offend some one, just dam stupid!!! Seems like Kentucky fried chicken still has the colonel.

      Think of overseas! we know them as the redskins or the 'skins. In Europe don't expect teams to change city or names. It's a team name -all races who play there don't object so who's objecting?

      bet there's not that many Americans offended! (Oh you refer to them as native Americans) why? That makes them different- they are Americans- you are immigrants!

      If Daniel Snyder wants to keep the Redskins name, and he's willing to risk the financial consequences, then he should.

      Personally, I don't think he should change the name, and I don't think keeping the name will lose Snyder much income. What's next? The PC police demanding that the Houston Texans change their name because Texans are mostly Republican? Thin-skinned-pansy-ass-politically-correct-non-contact-pacifist-assholes don't watch football anyways. Let 'em bitch and moan.
