  1. Bad news. Over 95% of all shark attacks take place in 3 ft of water OR LESS. Think about. That's where the majority of the people are. In waist deep water when sharks attack them. Yes, many shark attacks of surfers are in deeper waters, however, believe it or not, most surfers are never attacked.
  2. I agree. Of all the "noise" from the minority of complainers, I haven't heard a single thing about any sponsors (especially FedEx or Nike) making a peep about this whole thing. And I seriously doubt we will.
  3. Bang, the reason I specified Nike is because they are the company that makes the official jerseys & other NFL gear.
  4. Bang, you are absolutely right & I agree 100%. In fact, as I recall, didn't the case to have the name changed go all the way to the Supreme Court...twice? And they lost both times? That is as far, legally, that this could ever go. And like you said, the bottom line is the most important thing to the League & especially with a case like this. There are still overwhelming numbers in support of the name, overall & in the NA community. The Vikings, the Raiders, the Chiefs, the Buccaneers, the Bills, the Saints....all have something to lose in the future possibly if the Redskins wer
  5. Agreed. Unless Nike & other Official NFL Sponsors start pulling away from the Redskins, nothing, IMHO, will change. And as has been mentioned, the Redskins are a money making machine. No one who benefits from that wants to mess with it.
  6. If you go back a few pages, you'll read that I beat you to the punch on this. And I agree. That way, we an keep our culture & since the chief said they would adopt the Redskins, they would be untouchable after that, like the FSU Seminoles. However, I hadn't thought of changing the Washington part to Potomac. I REALLY like that!
  7. http://www.forbes.com/pictures/eddf45hmlk/nfl-billionaire-owners/ According to Forbes, there are 15 Billionaire owners & although Dan Snyder is not one of the highest in terms of personal value, the caption under his picture states that the Redskins are the 2nd most profitable team in the League, leading me to believe that the League is going to be on board with Snyder's decision to keep the name. I have no problem believing that the League itself would help Snyder cover legal fees & any other expenses he may need to keep this fight in his corner.
  8. Uh, no. I'm a Mike & I am definitely not with them. Also, to be fair, & certainly not trying to offend, but Michael Smith & Michael Wilbon, while not white, represent a "white man" mentality in this particular case. The idea that they can say something in regards to this situation is just as absurd as the white men who are all trying to speak for the NAs. And in all of this (and to be fair, I haven't heard word 1 from Wilbon or Smith about this situation) I haven't heard a single person make mention of the real problems on Reservations & the issue which real NAs face every
  9. I live in Mobile, Al. & I work with people who regularly give me a hard time about the name. A couple of them are mostly joking & as with the rest of us, once I explain what is really going on & the facts of the situation, I get a "hmm..." response & the recognition that what they thought they knew was apparently misguided. I do have one guy here who apparently is on board with the name change & regardless of facts I throw at him, he only can say to me, "it's derogatory." He has no facts or grounds in which to back that up, he can't even tell me where he originally hear
  10. While I can understand your discomfort, I can promise you that what took place in our history here with the Native Americans is far from the worst genocide in human history. Places like Russian & China might actually hold those. I am by no means trivializing the travesty that took place, but don't make it worse than it is. That said, there isn't anything that can be done about what has happened. All we can do is move forward. As I said in a previous post, I have read a lot on this subject & rest assured the word "Redskin" is not a widely known slur. It was created by NA chiefs to
  11. I don't know that any of us disregard the atrocities committed to the Natives by our ancestors. In fact, I would say, if anything, the traditions & culture we have so lovingly embraced as Redskins fans is our way of keeping those things real & honoring those people by keeping the memory of them alive. In all the reading I have done about this, the word "redskin" was never used society-wide as a derogatory term. Everything I have come across refers the derogatory notes as "savages". Wherever this information is coming from that "redskin" was used to degrade Natives is seemingly fairly r
  12. Virginia would make more sense since Ashburn is in Loudoun County & Richmond is in...some other county. Even if they build the new stadium in Fairfax, with all the other facilities in various areas of Va, "Fairfax" wouldn't apply.
  13. Not necessarily. The CEO & President of the Powtomak (I think I'm spelling that right) Tribe in NoVa has offered Dan Snyder the opportunity, if the Redskins are forced to change the name, to be adopted by the Powtomak Indians. They could change it to Washington Powtomaks & still keep all of the logos & traditions that has been a huge part of our culture as Redskins fans. Ultimately, the only thing that would change is the name. And, even with that as the name, the fight song would still work. If we are forced to change our name, this is what I would like to see. Because then, the n
  14. Right. Because as is afore mentioned, one person will start singing & the whole crowd will chime in. Can't stop that. No matter what happens, no matter if the name is changed or not, 81 years of tradition & 50 years of singing the best fight song in sports. That will never end.
