How many true fans still support the name Redskins for this team. I would ask that we are open for discussion in a tactful manner as we debate this. I for one have come to the revelation that the name is disgusting and appalling and wish the owner, Mr. Snyder finally rectifies this embarrassment to the NFL, the city Washington D.C. and set the example that Indian names in whatever kind should not be used in any association to mascots and franchise names.

I voted no in this poll but I look at it this way....
Do I WANT it changed? No.
Am I ok with a name change? Somewhat.
Could my point of view change due to league punishment (official or not) due to name bias? YES.
The meaning of words can change over time through context. The words "gay" and "******" don't mean the same thing they did 100 years ago. I find it unfortunate that that the term "Redskins" was on the verge of leaving our language as a pejorative.
Are we beginning to see bias punishment? I believe so.
Teddy Bridgewater over Cousins to the pro-bowl? I'm thinking team name bias although I've seen race floated as the reason (which I sincerely hope is not true).
rskin72: Wonder who else was injured today. Schreff….

Carnack: Dunbar lost his mind
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:20 GMT -5
Carnack: still very much a WIP
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:44 GMT -5
rskin72: Yep....we are. But we need to beat Dullass and NY. The Fecals will be a tough nugget.

Carnack: we match up wel and play the eaglestough every year. Its teh Cowboys we have a hard time getting by
Oct 14, 2018 15:09:19 GMT -5
rskin72: AS still has some growing pains with his receivers. Just not totally in synch. And God only knows it seems like every team musters a rush against us
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:04 GMT -5
rskin72: Yea, I will agree with you about the fecals and turds....the Gits also seem to have our number
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:34 GMT -5
rskin72: Or KC's number to be specific
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:44 GMT -5
Carnack: we will at the least split with the boys and the giants this year, though I think we will sweep the giants..the Eagles are the best team in the division and we will have to bring our A game to beat them.
Oct 14, 2018 15:11:50 GMT -5
rskin72: And hopefully have some folks back from injury. Need to be at full strength....or close to it
Oct 14, 2018 15:12:33 GMT -5
Carnack: we just need to get this secondary some experience without losing....its obvious they are very raw
Oct 14, 2018 15:13:34 GMT -5
rskin72: we should sweep the Gits. Manning has looked bad. But he does have OBJ...and their rookie RB looks very good
