Let's all act as thin-skinned and overly politically correct as possible....too the limits of our gag reflexes......Since my ancestry dates back to the Revolutionary War.....I've got my eye on forcing the New England Patriot's into a namechange........as their team name belittle's the sacrifices of my forefathers....

It is time for the P.C. crowd to back off. There are way more important things going on in the world today for them to focus their energy on. The Redskins are tradition and the name needs no change.
If we must change the name i have some ideas: Washington Cesspool, Washington Liars, Washington Idiots and Washington Donothings are but a few. How about Washington Bullets? That has a nice ring to it. Or maybe Washington Rednecks. As a redneck myself I would be very proud for them to pick that name to represent my relatives and I.
