With the repeal of the Redskins trademark by US Patent and Trademarks Office. What do you think the Redskins will change their mascot / name to?Personally I'd go with the
Americans or Generals or Warriors

I knew a girl in college who was 1/16th American Indian (Lakota Sioux) and she spoke often about the problems afflicting her people. If she had made a list of things she worried about regarding this, the use of the term Redskin wouldn't rank in the top 50. BTW, this issue never came up. It never occurred to her once to care, even after I told her I was a Washington Redskins fan casually. This is my point. At the time it never occurred to me that it could be an offensive word and she didn't say that it was when I said it. So where is this BS coming from?Most of what she spoke of was about the extinction of her people and preserving their heritage. A name change won't do squat. I realize this is just one person I am using as a sample size but I felt that most (Native Americans) probably are more in line with her way of thinking.However, she told me that she found the Atlanta's Braves tomahawk chop really annoying and borderline degrading.Where's the movement to ban that? As a liberal, this is getting really silly and follows a troubling trend.
