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).
