    Well, the President has weighed in.

    And demonstrated once again why I love him so much.



    He just couldn't resist throwing Pocahontas in there.:lmao2:

      I'm with you, G. I grew up in Faifax County, near-lifelong 'Skins fan, have been turned off by the activism and low-life behavior on and off the field. This is the final straw for me. Adios NFL and whatever that team in DC is going to be called. It was fun while it lasted.

        This. Keep the name, just change the image and mascot. Get Spuds McKenzie as a mascot.

              Not sure what to name them but their new War Chant should be " We squat to pee behind the tee-pee"

                  Jokes aside, he's got a point about team names being based on strength, doesn't he?

                  I mean okay, the term "Redskins" could be considered a racial slur. But they named the team that out of admiration for Native Americans, not to slander them. Same thing with the Indians, the Braves, the Chiefs, etc. Even (gulp) the Seminoles. Those names were given to sports teams in recognition of the bravery, endurance and fighting spirit of indigenous peoples.

                  Speaking of which, still waiting for the take on this from the one poster whose opinion on the subject even matters. :bna:

                    The name is pretty ridiculous. Could you imagine yellow skins or black skins?

                      Personally I don't really care about the name of Washington D.C.'s NFL team. Don't follow them at all and it's not any of my business.

                      That said, I'd be more strongly in favor of changing the "Redskins" name if it was actual, sincerely-offended Native Americans who were behind the protests. It's not, though. Survey after survey shows that like me, most Native Americans don't really care about it either.

                      It's white liberal wokies who are really the ones behind this. &%$# them.

                        Wait... we are just changing "Redskins"? Or Washington, too. Obviously cant use District of Cristobal Colon.

                            Hmm. :scratchchin:

                            Would the cheerleaders be called the Dildo Dolls?

                            Would their sideline routines feature, uh, props?

                            Perhaps double-ended props during halftime?

                            Asking for a friend, thanks, I'll hang up and listen.

                                    The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
