Well the President, the most powerful man on earth, has now spoken on the Redskin controversy. Change the name.

Saw someone say they could move the team to Idaho and call themselves the potatoes. Won't explain it.

I figure the Rednecks would be a nice compromise. And be more politically correct.

And for those that like to know some of the story. Name is 80 years old. Therefore, there will be some racial issues brought up. Can't see them calling themselves the Redskins because it was demeaning. Most teams won't call themselves the Pansies. Guess it is hard to come up with something that won't upset some group or another.

I think that going back to the original name Braves would be a compromise and as they will eventually cave anyway....

Rednecks would be more appropriate Pittsburg or Dallas. The Dallas Dung Beetles has a nice ring to it.

I think that the Washington Crustaceans fits well with the social and political climate of the city.

Agree as well.Try attending a meeting held by any Indian conference and addressing them as " Redskins". Many feel that "honoring" Indians as a "Redskin" is not only a racial slur, but also implies that they own them in some sort of silly football mascot way.

It wasn't always a slur. It has morphed into it. Why not PaleFace or Anglo or Gringo. And I don't think the origin of "scalping" was with the native american. So, maybe the Washington Scalpers is a great name. Goes with the territory given all the politicos in DC.

No that wouldn't work. Been appropriated into the PC Dictionary. I do like Fox Hat though.

What do you mean "has become"? It always was a fraud.

Of course, you're an insufferable sock puppet.

They could always call themselves the Federales and go to Blue and Black, rather than the Red and Green Christmas colors they now have.

exactly is your point? You pointing out racists posts isn't going to get people to stop posting them. If you're offended then too bad for you.
