Sims and Dungy won't say Redskins in games

https://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-s...021749496.html

How stupid have we become? Read above.

Soooooooo, in being with silly politically correctness, I would guess Cleveland Indians, The Fighting Irish, New Orleans Saints, UNO Privateers and countless other teams' names would have to change.

Yes, you may ask why I mentioned The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame and UNO Privateers?

Well, can people of Irish descent be not associated with always fighting. Rough, tumble, fighting, down on their luck Irish.

Pirates were very bad , very bad men. Blackbeard and our very own Jean Lafitteand ...etc.
Jean Lafitte Nat. Park and Lafitte , LA must go for name change too I guess.

STOP THE MADNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm a Pirate. And I do take offense to UNO. My wife is the only person who knows I'm a pirate but still. I'm fairly nice. Only like the advantage if getting booty. Otherwise, I don't pillage. So why do the Privateers mascot have a scowl? From now on I am just going to call them oono instead of UNO.

As it's been noted every time this sort of reply is given on the topic, none of the nicknames you describe are racial slurs, not even "fighting Irish".

It's ironic that native american indians look with pride on the redskins

It's the image of toughness, resilience, pride

Having an ad or stadium section with proud indians would be a nice in your face

All we keep hearing is "if it offends one person, they should change the name", and "you don't know what is offensive to another person". I totally disagree with that BS, but if that's the whiny way we're going to be in America, then how do you know what is or isn't a racial slur?

You can't make sense of it any more than I can. It's stupidity and self pity. This world has much bigger problems than a word that natives can't even agree on what it means to them. In the earliest days of this country Indians were commonly referred to as savages, and I would say that there undoubtedly WERE savages on either side of the fight. But then there were those who probably weren't doing anything to anyone, and that term I would imagine was quite offensive. Redskin just sounds like a fact being stated to me. I'm a whiteskin. Who gives a crap?

Maybe it did mean something else at one point in time, but guess what? Gay used to mean happy. Fagg*t meant a pile of sticks. Queer meant unusual. Nobody ever argues that those words have a completely different context today. And from what most natives seem to be saying, the term redskins is meant for honor. You want to argue with them? Go ahead, I'll wait.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.
