just had a great discussion about this with a co-worker. he asked me if i had heard about "all this fuss" about the r******s name, and that he thought it was bogus. there's no reason for anyone to get offended, he can't understand why anyone would, and he doesn't consider the term slanderous or racist. then i asked him about who was leading the effort to change the name, and he said some native american groups were involved. uhh...

he also said

"there was a time when geronimo was on the u.s. nickel - it's an honor."

can't argue with that!

I asked him what he thought of having his team featured last summer on the HBO reality show ‘‘Hard Knocks,’’ about life at an N.F.L. training camp. He said it was a net plus, although he was distraught over how much swearing there was and joked that Coach Bill O’Brien should introduce a cuss jar. I asked McNair if he was as sensitive to other offensive language, specifically the N.F.L. team in the nation’s capital’s being named the Redsk1ns. McNair told me that he grew up in western North Carolina, around many Cherokee Indians. ‘‘Everybody respected their courage,’’ McNair told me of the Indians. ‘‘They might not have respected the way they held their whiskey, but. . . .’’ He laughed. ‘‘We respected their courage. They’re very brave people.’’

"Get it... 'brave' people?" McNair then held two fingers behind his head to symbolize a feather headdress and proceeded to dance in a small circle while loudly whooping before finally collapsing to the ground in a fit of giggles. "I kid, I kid. But I really do love those goddamn injuns."

You're wondering, even for the NYT, how does somebody get to be such a front-running fairweather sycophant that they write this fawning spooge, but he helps you out with his little autobiographical sprinkles. "I am a Patriots fan... I live in Washington and usually write about politics..."

He called Goodell ‘‘a football politician, which is his perfect job’’ — someone who has brilliantly nurtured a system that grows the pie, expands to Europe and possibly Latin America and gains eyeballs trained on the ever-present Shield. The Shield is financial and cultural gold, proof that the system is working — at least for the Membership.

The Washington r******s failed to sign quarterback Kirk Cousins to a long-term deal, setting the stage for his possible departure next offseason.

Team president Bruce Allen said in a statement that Cousins was "obviously important to our team and fans" and detailed the team's offer made to the quarterback. He also talked about the decision in a video posted on the team's website but referred to Cousins on five occasions as "Kurt" instead of Kirk.

Asked about Allen's pronunciation of Cousins' first name, a team spokesman said it sounded that way because of the r******s president's accent.

FedEx on Thursday became the first major corporate backer of the Washington Redskins to call on the team to change its name, the most significant development yet amid mounting financial and political pressure on team owner Daniel Snyder in the long-running controversy.

In a one-sentence statement issued Thursday afternoon, Memphis-based FedEx said, “We have communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name.”

Even without elaboration from the company, the statement signals a dramatic pivot by one of the Redskins’ more loyal, long-standing corporate backers — a Fortune 100 company that for more than two decades has tied its brand to that of the team.

The company’s request comes less than a week after a group of more than 85 investment firms and shareholders representing $620 billion in assets called on FedEx, Nike and PepsiCo to sever ties with the team unless Snyder changes its name.

And it represents another shift in a battle in which the terrain has shifted from moral appeals to business and political tactics during a period in which the country is reexamining statues, monuments, symbols and corporate names and logos that some Americans have never questioned but others long have considered a source of offense, insult or pain.

If prominent Redskins sponsors feel sufficient pressure to dissociate from the team, Snyder’s bottom line would take a significant hit at the same time he faces political roadblocks in building a new stadium.

FedEx, which ranks 47th on the 2020 Fortune 500 list, holds the naming rights to the team’s existing stadium in Landover, Md., through 2026 under a 27-year, $205 million deal signed in November 1999. Moreover, the company’s CEO, Frederick W. Smith, is a minority investor in the team, believed to have a 10 percent share.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2020/07/03/washington-redskins-launch-review-controversial-team-name/

The Washington Redskins said Friday they were beginning a thorough review of the team’s controversial nickname, a stunning step that came as a number of the team’s largest corporate sponsors called for a change. The decision followed years in which the franchise refused to even consider such a move.

The team offered few details of what the review will entail, but two people familiar with discussions between team owner Daniel Snyder, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and other league officials that led to Friday’s announcement said the review is expected to result in a new team name and mascot.

“You know where this leads," one of the people said, speaking on condition of anonymity. “They’re working on that process [of changing the name]. It will end with a new name. Dan has been listening to different people over the last number of weeks.”

Asked whether a change was certain, the person said, “I don’t want to say 100 percent. It’s very likely headed in that direction.”

A second person with knowledge of the situation said: “It’s not a matter of if the name changes but when.”

it will be such an amazing surprise when the "review" determines that yes, it is in fact a racist team name that should have been changed many years ago

time is running out to pitch in $5 (Karl Malone), Friday, 3 July 2020 17:16 (one week ago) link

but the review will also find that the team holds no personal liability in the matter, having not been aware of the damage it caused until the review
