    The entire "Get rid of the Redskins name" movement is a cottage industry.
    Plenty of folks get on TV, expressing their outrage who no one would ever know existed otherwise. Others with fund raising.

    It's yet another disingenuous PC operation.

    It's not up to him really.
    Snyder has said he will never change the name.

    It's an election year...politicians are trying to rally the base since they are facing a huge defeat in the mid terms.

    That is really all this is.

    and what about the Braves, Indians, Blackhawks, Chiefs, Tomahawks etc... wouldn't those names be offensive as well ? Talk about opening up a can of worms by our wonderful government, when unemployment is at an historical low. I guess they have their priorities.

    In the most recent poll of native Americans, 90% did NOT find the term "Redskin" to be offensive.

    +2....Although I do believe Goodell could force his hand if they mount enough pressure. Nothing surprises me anymore, rules don't apply when the PC lynchmob is after you.
