Will Snyder change the name?

This has since been updated by a new poll of 1,000 that says that more than half are now offended. It's delicious this feeling of offense and its catching on. I wish it was a stock, I'd use all my available margin on it.

It is so interesting how you can 100% pinpoint whom someone votes for by the level of anxiety they’ll express when you point out that 1. something has transparently racist connotations and/or 2. that racism is bad.

lol ok snowflake

I’d argue that a team name that happens to be a racial slur is not inherently politics. I agree, however that some people will use this as a platform for their political agendas. As such, we need to throw poopies at them.  

It's not a slur. No one would name their team the sh*tty sh*tbags.

My home towm CFL team has had an on again off again controversy over their name that being the Edmonton Eskimos.  I'm sure it will get changed sooner or later.

They've (the team) has talked to a a lot of Inuit about it and half of them say 'Hey no problem it is cool having a sports team named after a term that used to describe us.  The other half are outraged at the horrible slur.

I will say with the social climate we have today you could legit have half the sports teams names be shelved because someone was upset about something.

This is a good argument. I’ve completely changed my position.

The one thing we know about Angelo, if some team were to change its name to “The sh*tty sh*tbags,” he’d absolutely buy an authentic sh*tty sh*tbags jersey, but with their worst player on it

Yes when I ponder things that are cool one of the top things that comes to mind is Gary Johnson.

Sports should just be shelved in general, and it kind of looks like they will be.

If I was Snyder, this is 100% the route I’d take—I’d agree to change the name, but then I’d wait a few weeks and start submitting the trolliest names possible. First name I’d try: The Washington Patriots, just to watch Roger lose his sh*t.

And move the team to Staten Island and then call in an air strike

Honestly, If it bothers them that much then fine, do it. Only responses from actual Native Americans are being accepted here. Dont bother to quote me if you are whitey.

Snyder, to this point has held firm.

But the times... they are a changing. Pressure is mounting. BTW, FedEx is not just a sponsor with stadium naming rights, but Frederick Smith, the chairman, CEO and president of FedEx owns a minority stake in the Redskins. Recently, it appears that Nike has removed all Redskins gear from it's online store. For those who will ask, my facts come from here:

https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/29401445/stadium-sponsor-fedex-asks-redskins-change-nickname

The point is that this is the beginning of this issue hitting Danny boy right in the wallet. It will likely get worse for him and ultimately he will be forced to give in.

Because money talks.

I believe all the merchandise revenue is shared among the franchises and players get residuals...so it will be interesting to see how that works. The hypocrisy of Nike doesnt seem to matter either, which is always good for a laugh.

I'm just proud of you for not typing "you people" in any of this.

As a Puerto Rican male the team name "The Jets" is both threatening and offensive to me, I hereby suggest we change the team name to "The Sharks".

Thank you for your consideration.

If the Jets were forced to change their name for whatever reason, what are some New York(or non New York) type nicknames that would fit?  

Maybe a better question would be what names would you submit for a naming contest?
