NFL's Washington Redskins will change name and logo, team says 1

 

The National Football League's Washington franchise will change the Redskins name and logo, the team announced Monday in a statement.

The new name of the team was not revealed.

The announcement comes just days after the team said that a "thorough review" of the name would be conducted. The name has long been denounced by Native American groups as an ethnic slur.

  1. When is the last time the Redskins had a winning season, 30 years ago? I was a huge fan in the 80s when I was growing up in DC, but after 30 years of losing it’s hard to care about the Redskins.

  2. Fun fact: an actual Native American Drew up the Redskins logo…

    • Fun Analysis: That still doesn’t make the logo OK…

    • @Boyd Otero The redskin logo was designed by a Native American. Walter “Blackie” Wetzel Chairman of Blackfeet Nation and President of the national congress of American Indians. Created the logo in 1971 to put on the redskins helmets. Quote By Wetzel in 2002 “It made us all so proud to have an Indian on a big-team. It’s only a small group of radicals who oppose those names. Indians are proud of Indians”
      This is how history is changed, people being ignorant and going off feelings to make history however they want it to be. So no one will learn from the past mistakes and history will ultimately repeats itself.

      @DieFlabbergast Christopher Columbus came to America and called native Americans ‘indians’ Christopher Columbus is stupid, native Americans weren’t from india

      The definition of irony

  3. I’m tribal and it’s not offense now we will only have the chiefs to represent us Native Americans. It’s ok to change the name but keep the Native American theme plz we barely get represented anywhere even if ppl think it’s racist. It’s a word and they never ment any offense to me. Wtf this cancel culture needs to end now and only us can do it.

    Apparently, honoring some people’s bravery and courage is now somehow offensive. I don’t get it, maybe I´m too old.

      Read up on what the CCP did to China in the 1960s.. And you will see disturbing parallels to what we are see happening here, in dismantling and erasing culture and history. CCP in just a few short years dismantled hundreds to thousands of years of Chinese culture and history because it conflicted with their “ideals” of what China was.. Notice the far left cares more about this and virtue signaling than actually helping the Native American population in United States.

    “Is this offensive to Native Americans, Mr. Black Man?”

  6. Create controversy, get attention. Everyone’s knew way of advertising.

      Yep, which is why we’ll respond by not watching the NFL. UFC is better anyways and they won’t play the Black National Anthem (because black is a nation, I guess?) before games either

    Nike – “Redskins” is offensive

    Also Nike : Chinese child labor is needed so we can sell our shoes for only $200

    • So this mean the Cleveland Indians, Kansas city chief and Atlanta braves need to change there name. If was so offended to nike,pepsi,fedex why they keep selling there Merchandise

      Trust me, us Niistitapi, are offended and we do care. The only Natives that don’t care, are the elders who have become segragated by the residential school and foster care system. And thug/gangster type Natives, are the one’s who don’t care, because of identity loss, they think the logo is something “warrior”-like and that’s how they identify with their lost cultural identity. Natives who speak their language, practice traditional religious beliefs, attend ceremonies, and are still deeply connected with our culture, we are the one’s who are offended by the name and logo, and all the idiots(fans) in the stands wearing mock headresses, beating on fake “Indian” drums.

  11. Imagine if CNN actually read the comments.

      Boss Hitmonchan Fox leaves it’s comments on usually, but it looks like every news channel leaves them on at complete random. Pretty annoying, but it’s better than channels like Obama’s where the dislike to like ratio and comments are turned off for every video.

      Anyhow, do leftists like you absolutely have to use those same few buzzwords (“bigot”, “racist”, “homophobic”, “sexist”, “Nazi/White Supremacist”, “Fascist”, etc…)? I’d swear that every leftist I’ve ever seen uses those exact phrases for every conversation and honestly, aren’t childish insults beneath political conversations? Politics are supposed to be adult matter, but using those is just childish. I mean, you know none of those words carry any meaning if you call everyone them, so you might as well just not even bother with them.

    EVERYONE IS OFFENDED BY SOMETHING! What a JOKE?🤮

  13. I guarantee people will be wearing Redskins shirts, hats etc for decades.

    • @Don b The only petulant and child thing here is changing a name because a bunch of self righteous white liberals are offended.

      After all, they got their gender degrees and social studies.

    • @C S Quite true! They’ll take a logo off the helmet but they aren’t going to restore the ownership of the land to them, are they!?

    • @Aaron Landry You might not be offended, but the woke white people who want to virtue signal are! And I guarantee you they are not willing to give back the land on which their homes sit, or the businesses built on Native American land.

      They’re not _that_ virtuous!!!

    • Well in KC….

      Yeah if they think they can somehow ban a stadium full of thousands of screaming fans from drawing arrowheads on each other or the word CHIEFS across their bellies or politely demand and order them not to do the CHOP during a big play… You’re nuts.

      They can do those things AFTER they take their seats and they can’t employ enough guards to escort EVERYONE out. Its an empty threat that is only enforceable with season ticket holders. In November 10 degree chills, are they going to make a woman open her coat to make sure they don’t have a sparkly Chiefs bikini on underneath? Or a bad shirt_

      Get real. Censorship only goes so far.

      What… If you had your car professionally painted in redskins or Chiefs murals are you banned from entering the parking lot to tailgate?

      Repeat after me kids

      Donato Davis Not what the Democrats are teaching no. Walking with cardboard signs about issues in cities based within the cities controlled by the lack of effort or neglect by the leaders in the cities on local levels……

      No marching with pretty signs doesn’t change the fact you guys don’t show up to city elections and vote officials out and get any policy changes.

      I can’t remember the last law that was passed due to the protesting. Maybe a case? A judge ruling one time? No law changes.

      You know what works? Following what policies are passed and showing up for every election keeping up. Learning the system, legislative, judicial and executive…..

      Knowing where the issues lie and who controls what, federal vs local level:

      The cities are failing economies. Rich vs poor. There is no in between. They run the nation problem…..those senators and officials can’t run their districts.

      It’s a popularity contest. Promises and words. No action just #walkaway

      Joseph F Microsoft no kidding just released a patent “060606” (devils numbers nothing to worry about)……and it’s a chip to monitor body activity for cryptocurrency mining. It’s also scannable light activated with luciferase….. nothing to worry about. Completely fine.

      Very real lol. I’m like how do you even imagine these things.
