Yes. I'm actually amazed that they've gotten away with it for this long.

 

Imagine if there was a team called the Blackskins. The only difference is that the native americans are nearly wiped out.

 

Since they're not my team, I don't really care if they change the name, but I can understand why fans would be very upset.

I also don't see a problem with Chiefs or Braves.

Nor do I. At least not from a racism perspective. I can understand a group that was wiped out by whites to feel that it is insensitive to use those names, but they're not racist. Redskins is blatantly racist.

one is a name based on the social ranking of a warrior class

 

the other is based on columbian-era racial indexing

I imagine a team named the "Yellowskins" would go over great in Cali

    • Sunday I was too annoyed and busy to post reasons he was wrong, by Monday he was telling everyone bye. Lol Honestly I think that was the most outraged I've ever gotten about anything on this forum. Even more than someone saying Jake Delorme sucks, back in 04 lol Its kind of mind-boggling someone who can read and write was truely blaming the girl for being rape. 
    • NFL Network is showing the Carolina / Giants game from our 2015 season.  I'm just watching the tail end where Beckham scored on Norman and it showed Cam's "I got this" nod. Man, what a great drive.  In 2015, we simply played with more urgency, hunger, and the drive to be the best. Cam had the confidence because everyone was playing as hard as they could.   Going into 2017, if this team can get hungry again, they are going to be fun to watch!  The more I think about it, the dominance of that team wasn't some kind of magic, but rather in will.  They would not be denied. The good news is that they can find the motivation again.  Nothing special.  I know we're all in draft mode, but I'm feeling pretty excited for the season.  I think our team will come back motivated!
