  1. http://files.redskins.com/pdf/Letter-from-Dan-Snyder.pdf This is an awesome open letter from Dan Snyder today...
  2. 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....
  3. 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 histo
  4. 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 lo
  5. 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.
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. Nice! I got Eric Reid, too, but two more spots higher, so you got great value! Your score is: 4222 (Drafting Ability: A, Player Quality A, Future Draft Picks: N/A) Your Picks: Round 2 Pick 19: Eric Reid, FS, LSU (A) Round 3 Pick 31 (S.F.): Jonathan Cyprien, SS, Florida International (A) Round 4 Pick 8 (BUF): Will Davis, CB, Utah State (A) Round 4 Pick 22: Da'Rick Rogers, WR, Tennessee Tech ( Round 5 Pick 21: Chris Faulk, OT, LSU (A) Round 5 Pick 22 (MINN): Rick Wagner, OT, Wisconsin (A-) Round 5 Pick 32 (BALT): Tavarres King, WR, Georgia (A-) Round 6 Pick 9 (BUF): Dion Sims, TE, Mic
  9. 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 (
  10. This is the worst photoshop job on this thread, but it gets the funniest reaction from me. People at work at wondering why I'm laughing so hard! LOL...
  11. Did the "Paloffs" thing start before extremeskins? I thought I read it was on a hockey message board? What's the genesis?
  12. 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.
  13. I'm curious to see the EliteXC fight with Kimbo vs. Shamrock. Lesnar vs. Couture is going to be awesome, but I think Lesnar gets the win.
  14. Shamrock was way past his prime. I'd say if it went to decision, he would have gotten the nod over Gracie.
  15. If conditioning is a determining factor of athletisiscm, then A kneyan would woop Floyd's butt. He's just saying, Big Show is not some coach potato. He played basketball in college and moves around every week in the ring. I think Flloyd would be killed by him in a real fight.
  16. We only wear Burgundy when we play a team that wears white at home... Dallas does.
  17. me, too. We all need it I think... :laugh:
  18. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: that's not the point... :doh:
  19. I'll second that motion. Then a few motions after that as well. That would be a great idea.
