The only way a name change occurs is if the government or NFL forces a change or it becomes financially beneficial to Danny to make a name chnage.
This whole discussion reminds me of the "F Word" Southpark episode. Some of the same exact arguments.
NO Pressure, No Diamonds, KNOW Pressure, Know Diamonds!
Griffin said that he was going to watch the game with his family and that he will never attend a Super Bowl if he needs a ticket to get in.
"John Wall will never be as good as Kyrie Irving was in his first week in the NBA" - David Falk, published February 14, 2013.
We had a big article in our paper yesterday how the Smithsonian declared the name racist and some guy wearing his Redskins stuff changed his mind, took it off and said he agreed that it was indeed racist.It's funny too, seems like the "white" people are pushing it more now than anyone.
Also on Jeopardy the other night they referenced a Mascot name "Indians" for a High School in this Wyoming city...Cheyenne. I turned to my wife and said "I give it 2 weeks and someone will be after Central (the said high school) to change their name. It'll happen.

A young spring-tender girl
combed her joyous hair
'You are very ugly' said the mirror.
on her lips hung
a smile of dove-secret loveliness,
for only that morning had not
the blind boy said,
'You are beautiful'?
No Pressure No Diamonds

Holy. ****.The team’s lawyers, defending the brand in federal trademark court, argue that the name was originally chosen in the 1930s to honor positive traits of Native Americans.
That might be so, but it’s certainly become a problem today, according to Kevin Gover, director of the American Indian museum. “It’s stereotyping to use Indians that way. They’ll say, ‘Indians are brave, strong and steadfast.’ We want to say Indians are also smart and pious and generous. If you honor us only for those [other] qualities, then you’re basically saying that’s all we’ve got,” he said.
This guy must be super fun to talk to at parties.
"Kate, you just earned your Ph.D, right? Come over here and meet Kevin, he's a really smart guy himself."
"Wow, man. Wow. I can't believe you would say that to me. I thought we were friends."
"What the hell are you talking about?"
"Well, you only said I'm smart. You didn't meticulously list every single positive thing you think about me, so the obvious conclusion I came to is that you think I have no other redeeming qualities."
When the Cleveland Indians change their name, then we can start talking. Seriously, their name is offensive. Until then, people need to stop focusing all their "civil righteousness" towards the Redskins and spread it to every team that has any Native American themes...
Gone, but not forgotten... RIP RP
