Are You Pretending to be Too Sensitive?

Are you offended by the name Redskins? If so why? I’m taller than average should I be offended by the New York Giants? If I knew someone who lost their life in a hurricane should I be insulted by the Miami Hurricanes? Is Lightning kills people, Cowboys killed peopled. Where does it end? What’s truly offensive? If Redskins was truly as bad as people are saying, don’t you think it would’ve been changed long ago?

The Redskins owner removed any doubt about a potential name change for his franchise, telling USA Today that it will “never” happen.

“We will never change the name of the team,” Snyder said. “As a lifelong Redskins fan, and I think that the Redskins fans understand the great tradition and what it’s all about and what it means, so we feel pretty fortunate to be just working on next season.”

Snyder makes this statement despite growing agreement to change the name, which some consider a derogatory term for Native Americans. A DC councilman reportedly wants the name changed to Redtails.

  1. Every time I go to an Indians game there’s always people there protesting chief wahoo and the name indians. This is a good subject man I’m glad you thought of it to write about it! There’s so many team names out there that people think are offensive. Like you said where does it end?

    • It never will apparently. I’m not sure if you’re truly offended or if you just want to fit in, I mean please. I the name was that offensive it would’ve been changed like 30 years ago. Please stop it. Let’s face it down the road we’ll be watching the Dallas Silly Nannies play against the Washington Blanket Snugglers.

    • I know right! Haha good names man but they may offend babys and old people! We’ve. Been sittin here going through team names and all of them we could think of a way people could take offence to it. Haha watch out for ur Brewers some one from AA might not like it haha! I hope they crush the reds! We might see them sell naming rights like the parks could be the cleveland jiffy pops vs the texas fruit of the looms!

      • lol now that would be funny! They’d have to change the name because kids watch baseball and it leads to future alcoholics and underage drinking. Poor Brew Crew. They better smash the Reds.
