I want to see both sides in this. I really do. But two hours after the meaning of the name of Washington's pro football team was vigorously debated before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board last week in Alexandria, I better understood why I will always be aligned with those who want the name changed.

Redakins forever...... can't believe there are still people with nothing better to do than rag about the most majestic name in sports. For heavens sake pick world hunger, world peace or male pattern baldness but jumping on the band wagon to change a name that the majority of 1st nations people are either proud of or don't care........ c'mon man.

Change the name? Hell NO! Whoever wrote that get a life. I'm tired of all this BS over the name. The statue of limitations is over on that argument. Plus times have changed the me redskins isn't offensive. All the pukes want is fame out of this crap. They want to be able to say they made a historical franchise change their name and possibly write a book on how they stood up for something that was offensive. I'm from Indian descent and I can tell you I don't get up every day and scream foul about this topic. It doesn't bother me nor my family. I like the team and its history. The term redskins was a offensive term decades ago, but in today's culture it isn't. People waste tax payers money these days on political BS. We have a tone of other issues that that effort could be used for.
