Face it, someone is going to be "insulted" no matter what is said. I prefer to look at how it is said and dwell less on the what. Some of what is said is downright funny, and a good laugh is always welcome.
For the record: I have no problem with the Redskins, Fighting Sioux, Badgers, Gamecocks, Vi-Queens, Volunteers or any of the other thousand nicknames out there. I do have a problem when people cherry pick what they consider insulting or degrading and then rail aganst someone else when they use words or phrases or nicknames "they" consider insulting or degrading.
And I'm glad you don't think I am "that stupid". I just don't know how I could carry on if you did.

The only thing OFFENSIVE about the "Washington Redskins" is the Washington part!!!!!
I vote that they should change their name to the Capitol Niggards - under Snyder the product fielded does not represent the storied history of the Redskins .
