    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, 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, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    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.
