PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has suggested that the Washington Redskins keep their name, but change their logo, from one indigenous American (a native American warrior) to--well, another one.

Most Native Americans are not offended by the name or logo.

It is the uber liberal white guilt crowd that is, plus they are the same people who want to turn the NFL into flag football.

The Redskin's logo was designed by native indians.

PETA has become equivalent to the Westboro Baptist "Church".

A bunch of vocal whiners and cryers demanding attention like a small child with a full diaper.

And they're both about as useful as the full diaper...

We all know PETA has a CHIP on their shoulder, but this really is a half BAKED idea.
What's next, the Cleveland Hash Browns?

williegoat, put the coffee down. You are trying way too hard this morning. I know, it was just too easy, right?

Could call them the Washington Potato Heads.

It's all crap an I applaud Dan Snyder for his steadfastness, however. the name will change when ----- This years super bowl is outdoors in NY in the winter. If and when it is deemed a success all 'northern open stadiums' with a community base that can support the game will become eligible. Dan will want the game and the commissioner will say --Love you Dan and we want YOU to have the game BUT the NFL cannot stand the heat your team's name brings. Change the name and you will get the game in 20??.

Do you think they know how crazy they sound to us?

I think they are actually a group of cool people, who sit around, get drunk, watch sports, and say "What can we think of next? LOL I can't believe they fell for that last one! Let's say they should change their mascot to the potato. Ridiculous, right? I love it!"

And then we fall for the troll every time.


No way could anyone have written that seriously. I felt like I was looking at an article by the Onion.

I was out in the sun and my skin is red, so how do I tell someone without fear of offending someone like Bob Costa? Does the name NY Giants offend large people? This is what da Fuhrer administration is doing to this country.

Hmmm. I thought PETA stood for People Eating Tasty Animals. Could be why I got dirty looks when I walked by their last rally with my plate full of ribs.

I bet if he changed the name to the Washington Rednecks no one would complain.
