If the Redskins change their names.....

Recommended Posts



Do not know about the original owner or any of his story but why would anyone want to name their team after somone they found "lesser"?

Because natives while being clowned and stereotyped were and are seen in american history as valiant warriors. Hence so many native mascots. But the name and imagery is over the top. Itd be like JR telling one of his black coaches put on face paint, a bone thru their nose, a spear and naming the team the Pickaninnies in his "honor"

George Preston Marshall is the father of white supremacy in the NFL. He started the "only white males can lead as QBs, Centers, OCs, head coaches" mentality that still is alive today. He segregated the game for 13 years after it had already been integrated to preserve the white race, not the game. I bet a lot of people who hold and held the "only white guys are smart enough to play QB" ideology dont even know where that came from or who came up with it. The white supremacist owner of the Redskins. SMH

Thanks for the info on the owner.

I guess I was just speaking in practical terms where if I bought a team, I would want it to represent something positive from my point of view. Never would I think to name a team something from my list of hated things. Would be kinda mocking in a way. Oh well, thanks for the info.

It would be like me spending millions and then naming my team the "liberals". joking

KT actually has a good point here... they should consult with native american tribes and come up with a name that honors them instead of mocks them.

I mean if they changed the name to Iroquis or something, you think the logos and all would stay the same?

Just wondering if it would go toward a tribal name or something like Brave or Warrior?

Course they could just change to a more local mascot, one that is more up to date. Since from DC.....

Crooks, Deadbeats, Blowhards, Self Serving Bastards, course the last one is my favorite, but hard to put into a song. Does ring true though, "Hail to the Self Serving Bastards".

with the stereotypical head of a white guy or a black guy as their logo.

I think the Raiders logo is clearly Clint Eastwood
