I know, we can call them the Washington Congresspeople because we don't want to be sexist and just say Congressman.
So if they had a team named the Nashville N-words you'd say "just get over it"?

Isn't that what all the Alabama cousins call their relatives in Nashville? LOL Just kidding of course...but...

Don't get me wrong. That word is offensive and I don't use it, but right on the other hand the people who are most 'offended' are the ones heard using it most often. It's a double-standard.

Eagles logo LOL.

About the Broncos logo, I do think it is anatomically impossible for a real horse to tebow. Will do some checking on this.

I'm just flabbergasted as to why everyone is calling it "tebowing". Players have been doing this since scoring a touchdown has been a positive thing. I don't get it.

--agrees with Danno about Tebow.

About Redskins: The name is, what, 80 years old? They called theirselves Indians, and you had people calling themselves "colored," and
you still have people calling themselves coonazzes.

When you pick a mascot, you're choosing something that you think is
cool-- something you can rally around and fight for. Its done out of
admiration, not out of disdain. Otherwise you'd have the LA Japs, and the Cleveland Krauts. Whoever picked "Redskins" actually thought Indians
were heroic, and would be a good symbol.

We just get offendable with time, and decide this or that word bothers us. Thus we still have a United Negro College Fund, even though in any other use, it sounds wrong. Yet the News can call an entire group of people a name that means a gay sex act, and snicker about it.

I'd just like to see equality for everybody. So long as we have "Fighting" Irish-- how's that for a stereotype?, and "Ragin" Cajuns-- another anger management stereotype--- I think we should relax.

I personally think nobody should ever call anyone a "Hokie."

Me too, and I'd also like to see everybody get their feelings off their sleeves.

So, the other guys have been atheists? Still don't get it.

This was not a comeback at you, Danno. I'm just still flabbergasted...that's all!

The crutches were a reference to Payton being on crutches, not our season.
