It's our team, and we like the name Redskins

The University of Minnesota has added the latest fuel to the Redskins name fire.
When the Vikings host the Redskins in early November, the university doesn't want the name used.
Opponents of the name keep coming up with reasons to dislike the name.
But fans of the Redskins like it.
They think it's praiseworthy for Indians.
There are noble characteristics that they want their team to possess, thus giving them the name Redskins.
If you think a name denigrates your favorite team, you wouldn't be proud of it.
Sports columnists focus on Daniel Snyder as the reason for the name not being changed yet.
He is, but not because he's the owner.
It's because he's a fan.
The name Redskins gives him good memories of time spent with his father, rooting for their team.
Fans are the ones who'd have to pay for new gear if the name changes.
They are happy enjoying their team.
Hail to the Redskins, Hail Victory. Braves on a warpath, Fight for old D.C.
