CBS Sports broadcaster Phil Simms said Monday the he is considering not using the Redskins name when he calls the “Thursday Night Football” Redskins-Giants game on Sept. 25 because he is sensitive to complaints about the name. Former Chicago Bears coach and ESPN analyst Mike Ditka made it clear that he has no such reservations about using the name in a recent interview with Mike Richman of RedskinsHistorian.com .

“What’s all the stink over the Redskin name?” Ditka said.“It’s so much [expletive] it’s incredible. We’re going to let the liberals of the world run this world. It was said out of reverence, out of pride to the American Indian. Even though it was called a Redskin, what are you going to call them, a Proudskin? This is so stupid it’s appalling, and I hope that owner keeps fighting for it and never changes it, because the Redskins are part of an American football history, and it should never be anything but the Washington Redskins. That’s the way it is.....

I agree with Mr. Ditka!!!! Why change it, if it isn't broken. Redskins is perfect and should not be changed because some stupid people are offended..... WELL GET OVER IT!!!!!
