In order to go with the theme shouldn't they be called the "Honkies" or "Pale-Faces" or something of the sorts?

 

I'm just gonna come out and say it. The Washington Rednecks (or Redneck Motherfugers).

As long as DC fans are upset over this I am happy. I derive joy out of Redskin fan turmoil.

"Crackers"

 

Also a racial slur not because were the same color as crackers. Think more like whips and slaves.

Haven't watched the commercial yet, but I've heard about it.

But I don't need to watch it to know my stance on the name.

There is a reason why my sig say I'm a fan of the Burgundy and Gold.

There are some Burgundy and Gold fans like myself that have long since been embarrassed by the name.

Love the logo, love the tradition but if the intent of the name is truely to honor native americans they would more effectively achieve that goal if the name was Warriors or Shaman etc...

 

I hate that the organization is on the wrong side of this issue.

The original owner who named the team in the 1930's was a known racist who opposed having any black players on his roster until the 1960's.

 

Great history huh? Why the name has stood for so long, and still stands today in 2014 is beyond me.

What like the "Washington Crackas"?

 

I see no issue with this...
