    Washington Redskins name change as well as the Fighting Illini?????

    If the Redskins and my beloved are forced into changing their name it will be a sad day for sports.

    "Redskins" is toast! The issue with the Illini is the Indian mascot, has to go. No chance either survives this avalanche!

    All the Redskins have to do is keep the name, change their logo to a potato, and say "Fukk You" to the pussy Liberals.

    Chief Illiniwek is retired but still hasn't been "replaced" which has caused controversy - They got a kingfisher bird mascot currently pending. There's also an unofficial "chief" who still appears at games. The Chief is not quite buried yet!

    I'm pretty sure if there was social media 70 years ago everyone would have been called racist now regardless of race.

    Why not change all team names to "The Snowflakes" or "Nancy Boys"

    I'm a St. John's fan.
    Once upon a time they were known as "The Red Men"

    Had nothing to do with the American Indian, any race, or creed either.
    They were called "The Red Men" because the jerseys and shorts they wore on the court were the color red.
    So back in the early days of college basketball St. John's was nicknamed "The Red Men"

    Flash forward to a decade ago when the Snowflake Political Police came along and pressured the AD's and high brass at SJU to change the team name because certain Nancy Boy groups were offended by the term "Red Men"
    Now St. John's is called the "Red Storm"

    Sickening.
