DC Mayor: Redskins Should Consider Name Change

Washington, D.C. mayor Vincent Gray has called upon the Washington Redskins to consider changing their name if the team wishes to have a new stadium built in D.C.

The Redskins presently play their home games at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. 

What a load of silliness!

Why should the Redskins change a name they’ve had for 80 years because a few professional activists and their apologists in the liberal media express phony outrage?

In the context of football, the name Redskins signifies the warrior spirit and isn’t a slur against Native Americans. 

The Redskins should stay put in Maryland and politely tell Gray to shove it.
