    It’s officially changing before the season, according to ESPNs Stephanie A Smith. He cites sources close the owner Snyder. “It’s happening” he said

    Way overdue imo. But I think Chiefs, Braves, Warriors, etc . are safe. Those are like Native American versions of Kings and Knights. I do think some of the assinine chants and imagery (tomahawk chop, etc) will go, though, and good riddance.

    Indians is weird, but you've got your Brooklyn Italians, Dallas Texans, Seminoles. I once saw a comic do a bit about, being from Brooklyn, he always thought Indians referred to, like, the guys at the gas stations and delis, why would you name a team based on people from India haha

    ^ Heep big pile of horseshit. . And for that matter 'Native American' is not really de rigueur either since 'America' is a tidy-whitey term (Amerigo Vespucci). .

    "Indigenous" ftw.

    Not in favor of Redskins name or against it. I honestly have no clue. But if they decide to do, I want to understand why and I want announcement be made with the reps of Indian Americans.

    Snakes seems fitting given the district they represent.

    I think the new name should recognize and celebrate American traditions. And what better way to do that than name it after our forefathers? We can combine forefathers with the old name (preserving the team's heritage is important), and viola, the Washington Foreskins!

    Isn't that anti-semantic?
