They don't play in D.C., they play in Maryland.
As if I needed another reason to hate DC and I'm a Redskins fan.
There was an American Indian community college out here (MT? ND? SD?) and their basketball team was called, "The Whites." Their mascot was a guy wearing a business suit holding a briefcase. Bloody brilliant. HH
That is awesome!
University of Northern Colorado:
When that went public, they couldn't keep shirts, hats, or any other clothing with that on it in stock. Everyone loved it.
Thinking more about this, it's funny.
They play and practice in Landover, MD.
Their corporate HQ is in Ashburn, Va.
Other than the Washington part of the name, what the heck does the DC council have to do with the Redskins?
That's very sad... I do not see it happening, in fact I do not think it will even become a real consideration.
RE: Fighting Whities, that is really funny!
I saw a discussion on this years ago on some debate show. When the question came up as to what to change the name to, the person who debated for the change said that as the "offended group", they get to decide what the new moniker would be.
I think it's great. I hope there are a lot of liberal Redskins fans who are upset over it.
Wow. The "offended group". Liberals are ALWAYS the offended group. Mostly trivial crap, but not confined to that.
"Fighting Whities?" I'm willing to bet that's not their team name any more. And though I'm a diehard Redskins fan, I fail to see how such a pejorative team name "honors Native Americans." How long do you think a team name would last if it similarly "honored" African Americans??
As an Eastern Cherokee I fail to see any issue with the Washington Redskin's name. Find something else to be sensitive about.
and from another poll:
We in Washington will consider changing the name of our beloved Redskins right after Atlanta changes the name of the Braves and stops doing that annoying tomahawk chop nonsense.
Additionally, on behalf of all animal lovers, we insist that the Dolphins, Lions, Tigers, Seahawks, Orioles, Falcons, Colts, Bluejays, Broncos, and Bears stop disparaging our mammalian cousins and that those religious fanatics in San Diego become the Wiccans.
Hey Kemosbai hold my fire water!
wait until the Scandanavian European-American folks hear of that football team in Minnesota, boy howdy!
and them North Atlantic island European-American folks hear about that basketball team in Boston, boy howdy!
lets not forget our bretheren who ride horses hear about that football team in Dallas, boy howdy!
and wait until those American-Indians in Alaska find out what a real eskimo cream pie is, boy howdy!!!!
Well the Indians are a nation......let them attack and fight about it!!!! Oh wait they got all that money they might win this time.
It makes the DC council appear relevant.
I am personally offended by the Fighting Irish name. Someone needs to tell them that violence should not be glorified.
What's the old joke about wanting to change the name of the Washington Bullets? They wanted to do away with the reference to violence, so they kept Bullets and dropped the Washington.
