Former Redskins to play upcoming season as 'Washington Football Team'
Washington's NFL team announced Thursday that it would play the upcoming season as the "Washington Football Team" while it continues to consider a name and logo to replace "Redskins." "The decision to use 'Washington Football Team' for this season allows the franchise the ability to undertake an in-depth branding process to properly include player, alumni, fan, community, and sponsor input," the team said in a statement. The Washington, D.C., franchise ditched its controversial old name under pressure from sponsors and activists, who argued that it was racist toward Native Americans. Suggested new names pitched by fans have included "Warriors," "Red Tails," and "Red Wolves." [USA Today]

Yes I did know that, and as part Native American I want everyone to know this Politically Correct Crap is for the Trash Dump, this has never offended me, I would say it has done the exact opposite.

GySgt Thomas Vick - I find also friends I have that are native American actually don't like these jerks taking those things away but then no one even bothered asking them. They not only aren't offended but don't like that attack on symbols of their heritage. The point is they are part of our History and the History of our country or regions of the country. I have never found people that had a problem with their heritage being remembered and not forgotten.
