You're going full loon across a number of threads today.

US sports teams change names and cities all the time - you must really melt down when a whole team up and moves to another city.
Just calling out left wing triggered nonsense. This is minor just wait till Trump gets re-elected.

Comparing Washington Redskins to teams who have relocated or changed names is not an argument. The Redskins aren’t moving and/or changing their name.

So just to clarify, the wealthy corporate sponsors who want the Redskins to rethink their clearly racist moniker are "left wing"?

You're the most triggered person on this thread. Actual Native Americans have an issue with this, but you're the one having a melt down about it on a rugby forum because the team are reviewing the name at the behest of their sponsors.

Some ideas that still allow for 'Exeter Chiefs' but actually uses for the branding some - weird, I know - local history instead of American history.

The name is their history.

As for triggered just calling out woke bs. There are bigger issues going on in the world than changing sporting logos and names.

They have been called the Washington Redskins since 1937 the same year they moved from Boston. That’s a lot of name changes over the years.

So did changing from the Boston Braves to the Boston Redskins then becoming the Washington Redskins change their history ?

BTW

If you had a sports team in say Melbourne called the Melbourne Abos would you be so passionate about them keeping their racist name

There’s bigger issues going on in the world for you to have a hissy fit about an NFL team reviewing their name.

But quite frankly that statement is just plain idiotic. You can deal with big issues and little issues at the same time.

Wah wah woke, wah wah triggered, its like you got lost from a chan thread or a YouTube comment section and wound up here by accident.

You'd get on well with fellow fukwits Catman and Mog.

Redskins is an offensive term. We have moved past the times when such names were acceptable. Would the Washington Chinamen or Washington Jungle bunnies be ok? :uhoh:

Grow up. You are the one making about a mountain of out of a molehill by agreeing with the activists pushing for the name change. That's all these activists do. Push minority causes rather than worry about issues like actually getting a job to put a roof over their head.

They should be called out on this.

Well the woke could focus on that if they want to regain office. They lost elections in the US, Australia and the UK by focusing on woke minority issues such as this rather than having policies on attracting jobs to help people pay the way. That's our main goal in life rather than get offended over a team that was given the nickname the Redskins in the 1930s.

So, you can't both be concerned about larger issues and change a racist team name?

It's one or the other?

Would the Washington Chinamen or Washington Jungle bunnies be ok? As in would you support Washington keeping either of those names in the same way you are supporting them keeping the Redskins name ?

That and they should blow up a bit of Mount Rushmore.

George Washington owned or over saw 317 slaves till his death, where he didn't bother setting them free in his will.
That's not a liek for liek comparison. Redskins was always a enagtive term to indians even if some of us today didn't know it. Imagine if a Football team was called the 'Florida Niggers' or the 'L.A. Chinkies'? Regardless of histroy of the franchaise it's just unacceptable. It has to go.

Most storied sporting franchaises have changed, altered or modified their names over the years. I never udnerstood why the owener wants to die on this hill.

The thing is, they can surely use this as an oppportunity to reach out and ask Native Americans for a valid nickname for the team as a sign of good will. If they like it it can be pat of their official franchaise name, if not it can be their official nickname. There's a chance to win-win here. There has been for years but the owner is a dickhead over a name.

I was thinking the same! The name is taken from a negative slang term for native americans (even if the intent was tribute to their imagery) and he's acting like people are attacking baa baaa black sheep.

Native Americans don't want to be associated with the sporting teams mascots/nicknames. Their campaign is to get them all dropped. So I don't think they will be coming up with a new one for Washington

They can certainly change the name if they want, and they probably should, but a lot of posters in here have no idea what they're talking about. Numerous polls have found most Native Americans don't care about the name.

The players neither, this conversation was already there decades ago, I knew some players from the 90s and they couldn't care less about a name change.
It might be the Washington Warriors, when Dan Snyder purchased the team he trademarked the name.
