    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

    Looks like now the rest of the NFL ( except Dallas ) could start losing money so now a lot more pressure will be applied to Snyder to change the teams name. It's going to get ugly. Looks like they can keep the name during an appeal process

      This is probably the only way to get the NFL and Snyder to change the name, take money out of their pockets. Should be interesting to see how this plays out.

      And leave it to Dallas to have their own deal. LOL
      One of these teams is not like the others

          So I guess if the name is in general it's okay? Like in the case of the Cleveland Indians in Baseball.. What about their logo?

          Or the Atlanta Braves and their logo and the whole Tomahawk Chop thing? I know that came under some scrutiny.

          KC Chiefs??

          I can see where the Redskins name and logo is offensive to native Americans.

            People should start selling more bootleg Redskins merchandise, not that anyone would be able to tell the difference since the entire franchise is bootleg.

              Just change it already.

              The Washington Warriors would be a perfect name, because they would be able to keep the indian head logo with that name as well.

                Yep, good choice... and it is a proud name, like Chiefs, and shouldn't be a prob...and no other NFL team is Warriors.

                    I thought the tribes native in that area used a red berry (red ochre) as a war paint, hence the name. If so, why the big deal?
                    Indians also used the term red skin and white skin. Just more of a "thin skined" issue really.

                    If you really want to see a real redskin, put my *** outside without sunscreen.

                      It's probably a ploy to get Snyder to change it.
                      Because the actual Redskins don't own the name anymore, now anyone can make a profit off of it and not get in trouble. Snyder's wallets are going to take a hit.
                      Mood: WOOF!

                        I think the Cleveland Indians "vintage cartoon Indian head" logo has got to go too.

                        The Redskins and Chicago Blackhawks logo's (almost identical) look respectful, and not offensive, but I'm not a Native American..

                          A change of their name is way overdue. Their arrogance and poor justifications never made any sense. The history of why their original owner named them that is all you need to know.

                              He should keep the name and change the logo to a picture of a red-skinned potato and trademark it.
