    Hard to imagine how people might conflate "The Red Men" with natives when their logo was originally this.

    FedEx pays for the sponsorship of the stadium. FedEx says change the name or else.

    Its not like the Redskins couldn't find a Indian casino to sponsor the stadium. I bet Synder may be talking to Chief Tumbling Dice, or Chief Double Down, or Chief Spinning Picture Wheel, or Chief Red Black right now about the sponsorship. I think that maybe even the Indian tribes may assert their sovereign country angle just like the "CHOP" did and have Chief Black Lung sponsor the stadium with the indian smokes they sell.

    They should change their name to the Washington White Power. Iíd support them.

    Name your team after winners. And white people defeated the Indians. Why name your team after losers?

    The RedTails would be an awesome name. The Tuskegee Airmen had the highest percentage of protection for B-17s flying dangerous missions into Germany. In 1945 they flew a daylight raid into Berlin and brought every bomber back safe. 1600 miles round trip.

    Alyssa Milano is now calling for the end of the “Washington Redskins” name. She’s even sharing a petition on her Twitter timeline.

    Alyssa Milano used to model Washington Redskins gear and she made a pretty penny to boot.

    We must end racism in its entirety. Allowing the @nfl to continue to use the @redskins name is destructive to Native communities and cannot be tolerated any longer.

    This is all very interesting commentary, coming from a woman who just a few short years ago allowed her name and face to be used in a sportswear collection that shows Alyssa in all sorts of “Washington Redskins” apparel.

    In fact, in February, the Pacific Standard published an article pleading for Milano to stop selling “racist clothes.”

    Next team to change name will be the Giants. People shorter than 5'-5" are signing petitions to change the offensive name. Shorties are offended.

    Minority owner. Ad boycotts rarely work because thereís other advertisers ready to replace those that leave.

    Dan Snyder wonít change it. Unless the NFL mandates it, heís going to leave it as is

    If I know Snyder he'll stonewall the opposition by stating something like "we are considering different name changes...." something like that just to drag it out a couple of years.
