    William and Mary went from “the Indians” to “the Tribe” but still was forced to drop the two feathers from it’s logo. Now when the ‘animal rights’ groups start in, there won’t be many names left for sports teams.

    I appreciate the admirable impulse of not wanting to insult anybody, but I can’t help thinking that there are better things for people to spend their time worrying about, or trying to change.

    So why do you worry about it?

    “…, but I can’t help thinking that there are better things for people to spend their time worrying about, or trying to change.”
    That’s exactly what slave owners say about slavery.

    right there with you. yeah maybe the the name isn’t the best BUT there are NO more important issues concerning native americans but then this is a cheap and easy fix that makes some feel good without doing a damn thing of substance to help the serious problems. like those who root for the Detroit Tigers but otherwise not interested in helping the city and it’s populace with it’s deplorable schools and crumbling infrastructure.

    Dan Snyder should also be blushing at his incompetence as an owner. I think Maureen Dowd has it right: watch any western, and the term “redskin” is NEVER anything other than a derogatory term.

    The Charlotte Hornets were named as a historical reference to the city. Then the owner picked up his team and moved, becoming the New Orleans Hornets. The Athletics moved to L.A., the Jazz moved to (!) Salt Lake City… Big deal. Change the name.

    As I have said before , those who invoke “Political Correctness” just want to have their racism served without comment or condemnation. Go Pinkskins!

    Tigger: Don’t do much Bible reading do you? Try Judges; Deborah recruited Barak to defend the country (hardly a terrorist task) and he did it quite well.

    If any NFL team is going to adopt that name, it’s gonna be Dallas! Just google “America’s Team”…
