Fight On: Battle Over Redskins Name Goes Before Federal Board

Post  Outerlimits on Thu Mar 07, 2013 11:28 am

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The long-running battle over the Washington Redskins name gets a restart Thursday, when a group of Native Americans goes before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board to argue that the franchise should lose their federal trademark protection, based on a law that prohibits registered names that disparaging, scandalous, contemptuous or disreputable.


We better change everything that could possibly offend someone! Oh wait…we are already doing that for every “protected group”. Of course if you are offended by something and you are not in a protected group…you are SOL.

It is. Not much chance of a change though is there?

Of all things offensive coming out of D.C., these moonbats are singling out the professional football team. Rolling Eyes

Amid renewed momentum, Native Americans opposing Redskins nickname go before trademark judges

This sounds like another attempt to get a "piece of the pie" without having done anything to earn it.

The Washington Redskins are changing their name because of all the negativity, shame, humiliation, dissent, polarity, adversity, defiance, hatred, animosity, contempt, discrimination, division, violence, counter-productivity, ill-spirit, ungodliness, and hostility associated with their name.


From now on they will be known simply as the Redskins.

Today, we forget that the original "Redskins" was a ball team from Boston—whose Native-American coach wished to honor the Native-Americans on the team—with that name...

But I'll take the Washington Reagans.
