Have some common sense. This reminds me of another board discussion I had about the Paterno Statues at Penn State. I argued they should come down. Students argued that if the statues come down, then the library bearing his name must come down also. I argued just the statues, have some common sense.



The statues were there to honor him as a coach. He didn't pay for them, and that honor may or may not have been warranted after the scandal broke. The library is named after JoePa because he donated a huge amount of cash. Enough that they picked him over the other donors as the person to name the building after. That seems like a completely different situation...

The Washington Redskins MUST change their name.

Let's remove the offensive name (Washington) and just call them Redskins.

Wow, my Arizona Cardinals don't even get on the list as a recognized NFL football team. Now that's almost as offensive as their play on the field. :)

I lived in AZ for 3 years and don't remember seeing them on local TV. But I may have slipped in my cut and paste.

Why give some teams a pass? Panthers, Lions, Bengals, and Jaguars are aggressive carnivorous cats. Eagles and Seahawks are just as bad as falcons. So the rams, cardinals, dolphins, broncos, and bears could potentially be OK, I guess.

Bears is actually kinda appropriate unless the team has an actual hetero guy on it. That might be slightly uncomfortable for him.

Seattle is name after Chief Sealth.... which is of course hardly offensive, honouring the guy with a city name.

Not really... calling something after something isn't offensive in itself.

Which is the point being hugely missed here, but never mind, eh.

I copied and pasted this to my facebook (crediting a message board as I know there are AP players here who would rather not be known)

The entire game is hateful to people without feet. Maybe change it to the "National Fun League"

In that instance then it's probably just as hateful to people without balls.

Now that you bring it up isn't calling it "National" xenophobic as well?
