Goodell slams Redskins name again as 'offensive'

Recommended Posts

I saw that at NFL Presser today that Goodell once again said the Redskins name offends some demographics.

That got me thinking. base don fate/history or whatever could have been some really offensive names for other teams?

I will start:

It's a good thing for the 49ers sake that the California Gold Rush was in 1849 and not 1869 :(

the florida state seminoles pay money to the seminole tribe for the usage. that's great. If they were the Washington Algonquins and a similar arrangement was made, that would be no problem.

The word Redskin really is offensive. It's a racist slander (and a terrible logo) from a people that was genocided that actually happened. It's not politics, it's history.

Ya, Snyder must be doing something to keep that name intact.

I find Godell offensive ....

Not me. I never let Commishes get to me. If you find what they say offensive remember they are not decision makers. They are like the President press Secretary. They just deliver the Bosses wishes. They just do exactly what they are told to do by the guys who hired them and pay them every week, the Owners.

if California Gold Rush was in 1869 instead of 1849, you think there would be pushback to the San Francisco 69ers?

There was a flag team from Vicenza that called themselves the 69ers. It's written numerically, so the translation is irrelevant. We destroyed them. :) I think I put up 52 or some nonsense. For some reason there is an A9 team from Napoli called the 82ers. I think it was the first year for American football in Naples. There are a bunch of Niners fans in Italy. It probably stems from when they started televising the Super Bowl. I know at least one guy with a Niners tattoo.

They just do exactly what they are told to do by the guys who hired them and contribute to them every week, the Owners.

Fixed.

We did a lot of work for the Mohegan Sun Casino, which is run by the tribe. Believe me, these dudes have noooooooo problem running around in Sitting Bull and Pocahontas costumes as long as it brings in millions of tax-exempt dollars.

Why? Hunchbacks get all the fine gypsy hunnies player.

Hey Fatty - Hunchbacks are French, not Irish! Anyone who thinks Redskins is a slight to the Indians who were here first is a politically correct pussy! Get over yourself. This ain't the Special Olympics, and every kid don't get a medal or a hug.

i think its stupid to be offended by this personally. if long island had a team called the long island dago wop greasy italian guidos i wouldn't care less. get over it.......

Why you care? your people too busy living in Iron Giants and riding Mechanical Horses. You and Dego Wop Greasy Italian Guidos take the land that belong to all and call it yours. Now only spirits most my people know come from bottle, White Devil kill rest.
