Hail to the Redskins

The award for spinning your wheels goes to efforts to get the Washington Redskins to change their name.
Yes, many high schools and colleges have moved from Indian names in the past 40 years.
Even the Washington Bullets became the Wizards to avoid an "offensive" name (although the new logos and uniforms harken back to the old name).
Redskins football is Washington - has been for 75 years.
Millions of fans have Redskins hats, shirts, sweatshirts and uniforms. They are invested in the current name.
They are the Braves on a warpath, fighting for old D.C.
There are more important things to fuss about.
Leave the name be.
