This has come up before, and it did again on Sunday before the games got underway. Should the Washington Redskins change their name? I heard the fact that they've been the Redskins for years and all the history of the franchise, but what about the history of the word 'redskin'.
I don't know that, when the term 'redskin' was introduced, it was meant to be flattering.
Redskin, was compared to team names like Chiefs. Chiefs are leaders, to be revered. Braves. Braves are warriors, couragous in battle. Redskin?
I've never have thought it was a very good name to hang on your franchise, but I'm just one mans opinion.
