Redskins SC Obama Says Redskins Should Change Name

President Barack Obama decided to offer his opinion on the controversial subject known by its name as the “Washington Redskins”.

For years since the team got its name, a handful of native Americans have picketed outside the stadium stating that the name is derogatory.

I have been a Washington Redskins fan since 1983, when I had a chance to meet Joe Jacoby, Russ Grimm, Jeff Bostic, a.k.a. the “Hogs”.

I have never heard a single fan ever express their disdain for the name. I own a 45 recording of “Hail to the Redskins” and still sing when the team scores.

Instead of butting in where his opinion doesn’t matter, shouldn’t the President focus on re-opening the government? Once again, his priorities seem focused on appeasing small interest groups rather than solving big picture problems.

    If anyone should change their name it should be him and his raghead name to an American name or an African name like BoboCheetah.

  4. Since most of the team is black they should change their name to Washington Blackskins, I would think.
