The Official ES All Things Redskins Name Change Thread (Reboot Edition---Read New OP)

that said, i don't think Harjo is in it for the money.. i think she just wants to make everyone do what she wants regardless of how they feel about it. She's a crusader, and crusaders always think they are right no matter what.

I think she is revenge minded like the fellow in that you tube video insinuated.  Society will PAY for the wrongs done to her and her people, even if the Washington Redskins and other Native themed teams and their fans have had ZERO to do with any of that.

I really do wish Snyder had done this 5-7 years ago, before the tsuanmi of coverage on this thing since early 2013

 

 
Redskins launch new ‘Redskins Facts’ campaign as former players travel to reservation

 

Amid continuing criticism of their team name, the Washington Redskins have launched a new campaign to defend the moniker, headed by popular former players who traveled to Indian country this week.

Ads for a new site, RedskinsFacts.com, have begun appearing on the web sites of Sports Illustrated, the Washington Times and The Washington Post in recent days. The group’s Web site lists a five-man steering committee of former players — Gary Clark, Chris Cooley, Mark Moseley, Ray Schoenke and Roy Jefferson.

At this point it is going to fall on deaf ears. The mainstream media has made up it's collective mind to be highly offended by this, to amount of facts or reasoning will chage that.

 

Anyone who disagrees with the group-think is branded a racist.

I suppose. I just don't see a ton of speaking engagements coming out of this.

This isn't the concussion issue, where there are dollar signs all over the place for potentially thousands of people.

It seems that if I was in the business of making a quick buck, the whole casino business would be the focus of my attention.

This is a month old, but relevant-

The team should take the offensive word out of the name.  name them the Maryland Redskins

 

Or they could change the logo to a redskin potato

 

Will the NY Giants change their name to avoid offending tall people?

Al Sharpton made himself a famous civil rights leader by falsely accusing a group of prominent white NY leaders of gang-raping Tawana Brawley. It was blatant b.s., it was exposed as such....and he eventually parlayed the fame from that phony incident into becoming a TV talk show host on MSNBC.

The Dude, a White Russian with almond milk penance should suffice for those jokes.

 

1.5 parts vodka

1.5 parts kahlua

1 part almond milk

 

Pour over ice and enjoy repent!

I definitely see many correlations between sharpton as a person who appointed themselves as leaders of a racial group and the activists.

(Although I think blackhorse and harjo aren't necessarily in it for money, while sharpton and Jesse Jackson, as another example, I believe, are)

Those people wield a lot of power simply by being the loudest, most persistent voice, which is what gets things done as opposed to what's right or wrong.

Lol :D

Why do you think her opinion matters anymore than anyone else?  I she a Native American?

 

Edit: There are already 357 comments below that article.  I scanned through the first several already and they are as predictable as ever.  

 

"Don't care what she thinks"  "Worry about something important."  "Why don't you change this offensive name also," etc. etc. etc. etc.

If you want my opinion, she's just another straw.

And now Hillary lays a straw on the camel's back. 

 

My impression was you think she is 'the' straw that will break the camels back.

"Everyone in Washington D.C. seems to be turning on the Redskins, at least when it comes to the team's name."

No, John, just all the liberals. Goodness, we know the media has an acknowledged liberal bias, but at least pretend like you understand that we have two parties in this country.

Hillary was already president for 8 years. That was enough.

I was on the fence until now. They should definitely keep the name.

Hillary should change her name, to Hillary Corleone.

Ah, gotcha Painkiller.

 

Hillary's straw aint much, other than the fact she's a name of note. No actions, just words

 

'The straw' will be the first sponsor to walk. That straw will hit the camel's back like a 100 lb bail of straw.

 

We're still quite a ways from that day, but it's comin.

Assuming no other sponsor steps up, which is pretty unlikely. You need more than one sponsor to walk, and you need a decided drop-off in interest from other big sponsors.

If sponsors cause PLAYERS to walk or pass on by, then we've got a problem. it's the only way i can see a single sponsor really putting a push on.. if a big athletic shoe or apparel company shies away from a player and a big bucks contract over the name, then players have to account for that potential loss of their own revenue when considering signing here.

RG3 makes a good chunk off of his endorsements.. if that takes a hit it could force issues quickly.

This article is going to nab CBS some decent ad revenue for the ads:  text link ads, banner ads, etc on this page.  I guess they have figured out how to make money about really non sports topics because the off season is so long in the NFL these days to keep up with the 24/7 news cycle.

 

from same link, and with that I'm done.  Point made

We're still quite a ways from that day, but it's comin.

 

that 'groundswell' of opposition will continue swelling huh?  lol

 

Honestly, I see the opposite happening.  I think people are becoming more and more fed up with this dumb argument and talking heads and politicians would be wise to stop talking about it.  The people do not see this as the issue they are trying to make it out to be.  The evidence of this is everywhere.

I'm kind of with painkiller on this- and I didn't feel that way month or two ago.

Think about it- outside of the nutty activists/opportunists, mostly liberal politicians and sport writers (none of whom appear to have done five minutes of research on the issue), who really is speaking out against the name?

The redskins PR dept is 90% of the reason this issue has gotten where it is, and that's only because the American public is too stupid or lazy to know what they are talking about. A bunch of sheep, believing everything they read.

Im seeing more support for the name of late, from NAs and non redskin fans.

I like the "save the name" movement and what the skins are currently doing to finally stand up and fight these idiots.
