As a Life long Redskin's fan this whole argument about our name is utter bull s**t. Our Proud club and 3 Time Super Bowl Champions are going into their 88th Season and the Redskin name and Logo has and always will be a tribute to the Native Americans (who if i am not mistaken traded most of their land for alcohol or had it taken from them by the very same people that now try and defend them 'The Politicians')
It also really infuriates me when former players (ie Champ Bailey) now decide to come out and say its as bad as the 'N' word......... so Mr.Bailey it did not bother you in the years we filled your bank account with millions of dollars paid for by us the fans that supported you and that name did it ?????????????????????????????
Also Mr.Bailey i would hazard a guess that in your CD collection at home their are several albums from artists that habitually use the word beginning with 'N' in their lyrics ummmmmmmmmm 'pot kettle black comes to mind' oh wait can I say that or am I being racist..............
Sorry to rant but Mr.Snyder and the Redskins foundation has done nothing but show this name with Pride and Tradition not to mention the millions of dollars the team donates to help the less fortunate which include many Native Americans, so to all the politicians out their shut ya traps and turn your attention to the real bigots of the world thats right look in the mirror!
