Good commentary KK, I enjoyed reading your perspective.
As for RG3...poor guy. It's embarrassing he has to deal with that type of idiocy. Sorry buddy, hang in there!!!
I'm also wondering about the veracity of "most" Native Americans find the team name offensive. I live in Karuk Tribal land and I have to say, I got along very well with the vast majority of the Karuk kids in HS as we wore matching Redskins gear quite a bit during football season. Maybe that's just one small segment of Native Americans who doesn't care, I don't know, but our love of the Redskins was something that created a lot of friendships that otherwise probably wouldn't have happened as we hung out with polar opposite social groups...

Politically correct garbage is something I just hate.Did Custer say"Here come the damn Native Americans" No he said "Holly chit there is an arse load of them. Merry Christmas guys and gals.
Of the sports writers in DC, he is probably my #3 behind Boswell and (this may be a wild card) Dave Sheinin.
Anyways, thats sort of OT. Lets get back to banging on Mike Wise. God he sucks.
Edit: Oh, and i didnt say it in my first post, but I thought your piece was really good KK.

I went back and forth with Wise on Twitter a bit today. Apart from being a hack journalist, he also seems incapable of a) making a point or b) defending a point when presented with the challenge. Seriously.
If you do not want to say "Redskins" or learn the history of why it is.
Go be a fan of another team you can actually tolerate to speak of. If and when the name changes don't come back. (it's not a mandatory obligation)
