One thought on “De-skinning the Washington Football Team

  1. I agree wit the point of view that it’s time for Washington to change, I was once neutral leaning towards keeping it (to be perfectly honest), but not anymore. The one issue I have is that I would like to see Washington’s football team take a new name that acknowledges native American people in some way. Perhaps in partnership with east coast tribes, the way the Florida Seminoles have done, as opposed to just keeping the name as is. Become part of a support structure and educational system regarding the continent’s initial inhabitants.

    Renaming the team the Feds, the Generals, the Lawmen, the Tax Loopholes, the Scandals, the Scuzz Buckets, etc, wouldn’t be the same thing (as entertaining as choices might seem at first glance).

    But that’s my opinion, and I’m no one, the equal of many other nobodies.

    Thoughtful post, sir.
