  1. Where was the first down marker in that pic?
  2. http://files.redskins.com/pdf/Letter-from-Dan-Snyder.pdf This is an awesome open letter from Dan Snyder today...
  3. As noted in an above article, a retired Chief of a Virginia Tribe noted that John Smith wrote in his diary the infants born in tribes were as white as the settlers and the CHief also noted that the use of a big repellant using animal fat and a plant dye would darken skin red over time... He also pointed out that the term was coined by Native Americans themselves to distinguish themselves....
  4. A lot of people had the same attitude toward civil rights activists in the 1950-60s. This naming topic is in no way comparable to civil rights movements. There is no hatred involved. I've never heard the term used in a negative manner and neither have you. There are no violation of rights unless you are taking away a private companies rights in which it seems to be the case. How more people are offended today (still a low %) than 50 years ago is amazing. THe older Native Americans are less offended than the younger probably because they are closer to the culture and understand the history and meaning...
  5. Awesome article below of support for our name from retired Chief: Retired Native American Chief Would Be Offended If Redskins DID Change Name http://washington.cbslocal.com/2013/05/29/retired-native-american-chief-would-be-offended-if-redskins-did-change-name/ WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Days ago, ten members of Congress sent letters to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Redskins owner Daniel Snyder, and the team’s stadium naming rights holder FedEx, along with the league’s 31 other franchises, urging them to have ‘Redskins’ changed due to the name’s offensive nature. In response, the longtime chief of a major Virginia-based tribe went on the record to say he’d actually be offended if the team DID change the name. Robert “Two Eagles” Green, who retired from his presiding role over the 1300-member Patawomeck Tribe in March, was a guest on SiriusXM NFL Radio’s “The Opening Drive” on Wednesday. He gave a detailed account of the origin of the term Redskin, why so many people are offended by it, and how political correctness has allowed this story to fester far longer than it should. “I think that first of all, you have to make a decision whether you consider it offensive or not, and frankly, the members of my tribe, the vast majority, don’t find it offensive,” Green said. “I’ve been a Redskins fan for years and to be honest with you, I would be offended if they did change it.” Earlier this month, Snyder told the USA Today “We’ll never change the name,” but instead of bringing finality to the debate, his words seemed to spark controversy on a national level, bringing activists from both sides out of the woodwork to fan the flames. Chief Green’s research indicates the common misconception is to think the term was originally used as a racial epithet to denigrate Native people; that the label was actually self-applied, and was used quite frequently during interactions with early settlers. Here’s a blow-by-blow of the interview, in which each nuance of the great debate is addressed. Why are people offended by it? “Well I think that, first of all, our country has become too politically correct. And you can find it in any number of areas. Little League, where everybody has to get a trophy now, or otherwise, the poor child that doesn’t get a trophy will have his psyche hurt.” Origin of the Name “And I think what you have to do is look at where the term Redskin was originated. There’s some that give the term Redskins a negative connotation to indicate that it was created by the white man, to offend the Indians. But in reality, the term Redskins came from the Indians. And they referred to themselves often times, in treaty negotiations and meetings with the early settlers, as Redskins. “So it’s not a term that the white man created. It’s actually a term that the Indians themselves created. I just think we have people in this country that try and gin up problems that don’t exist.” “Now, our investigation into the term goes back pretty far – to 1608 – when John Smith was traveling from Jamestown to meet with the Indian people, and he remarked in his diary that when they’re born, they’re as white as we are. It’s only as they age that their skin darkens. “And we believe that that was a reason for that. We use a bug repellant, for lack of a better term, that was made up of animal fat and the dye of the Puccoon plant. And coincidentally, the Puccoon dye, when it’s crushed and dyed, is red. And so for years, the Indian people were rubbing this red dye into their skin. And some of the other early settlers remarked that their skin turns red. So, was that a comment meant to denigrate the Indian people? I don’t think so. I don’t think the name was created by George Preston Marshall to be offensive.” The Logo “And if you look at the logo, there’s nothing offensive about the logo. I think one of the great things about the logo is that it’s an Eastern Indian, and they didn’t go to the full warhead headdress and things. It was never intended to be offensive. I think that sometimes, we’re a little too touchy in our society these days.”
  6. This is getting ridiculous. We've been through the protests 60 years after the name took affect and the Supreme Court said you don't have a case. Now 80 years after the name took affect there are individuals claiming it's derogatory. I've never heard the term used in a negative light... and neither have you (generalizing "you", not being specific I think the opposition needs to just think of another cause to go after, something of importance and helps people, like raising money for cancer or fighting human trafficking.
  7. Whatever algorithm they are using, it changes the thought process, so it's not the same exact every time which is nice... I've seen guys slide up and down... Also, their ratings are updated every so often on that site...
  8. I think that's the default, Redskins have 2nd round pick #19... that other guy traded down two spots to #21 and still nabbed him...
  9. Nice! I got Eric Reid, too, but two more spots higher, so you got great value!

  10. I did lots of trades and didn't agree with some of their rankins, ie. I think Baccari Rambo is overrated. If his first name was John and last name Doe, he'd be ranked much lower. The names kind of help; just ask the teams that signed Pacman Jones. Biggest mistake I made was not getting Justin Hunter, as he went a pick before Rambo... I traded that pick thinking I'd be safe sliding down a slot and getting that underrated WR Your score is: 3587 (Drafting Ability: B+, Player Quality A, Future Draft Picks: N/A) Your Picks: Round 3 Pick 2 (JAX): Bacarri Rambo, FS, Georgia ( Round 3 Pick 24 (IND): B.W.

    Paloffs is Now: 2007(merged)

    Did the "Paloffs" thing start before extremeskins? I thought I read it was on a hockey message board? What's the genesis?

    It wasn't that underthrown, but it could have been lead out to the left more. Kelly was slanting deep across and the throw didn't lead him.
