Trademark Board Weighs How Offensive Native Americans Find 'Redskins'

The National Law Journal

That the Washington Redskins football team name is controversial is undisputed, but the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board is weighing whether there was evidence that enough Native Americans considered it disparaging to cancel the team's trademark registrations. A Thursday hearing marked the latest development in more than two decades of litigation over the name.

For crap's sake, now we have to go back and fight the Battle of Little Big Horn again or some such other foolishness, the Redman/Redskin as used in this context is an honorable fighter, a good opponent, not a wheedling Reservation Squaw wanting every thing handed to them by the Great White Father (who i\s no longer White) in perpetuity.

Syracuse lost their mascot, Miami University did as well, only Florida State among majors seems to have enough balls to keep its mascot and symbols, with the cooperation of the Seminole Tribes of Florida.

Did you hear the one Congressman's proposed name?  The Redtails as a memorial to the Tuskegee Airmen; while they were an honorable crew, what the Hell did they have to do with Washington or Football?

If we have to pick a DC oriented name, we could do the Senators, or Capitols (and yes I know other teams have done that), or maybe we can be non-partisan and pick my favorite, the Republocrats.

Redskins name change: Will Congress make team act?

Christian Science Monitor

Can Capitol Hill get the Washington Redskins to change their name? That’s a live question in D.C. Wednesday since 10 members of Congress have sent a letter asking for such a switch to Redskins owner Daniel Snyder, National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell, Redskins sponsor FedEx, and all the other NFL franchises
