    That being said....it's really a stupid thing to try and hold onto a name that people are offended by. And completely insane to pull a stunt like this. It isn't going to hurt to change the name and you would see a HUGE jump in merch sales if it did.......minus the stubborn old timers who would continue to use the old name (I still call it Giants Stadium).

    Dan Snyder is a buffoon and he just sealed the fate. The name will be changed.
    I referred to the Raiders as Oakland their entire stay in LA, and still sometimes refer to the Rams as LA. So I guess I'm as stubborn as Jerry and Dan!!

    I agree. But they can keep their name "Redskin," IMO, if they change their logo to a redskin potato.
