The United States Patent and Trademark Office has canceled the Washington Redskins trademark registration, calling the football team’s name “disparaging to Native Americans.”

Liberals are dumb :(


That name will never change. Mr. Snyder is a neighbor of mine and he will not budge. This same exact thing happened in 1999. Sorry. Redskins isn't going anywhere :D

The 1999 case was never reviewed on the merits at appeal. The ruling was overturned on a procedural matter that does not apply to this newest ruling.

JFC, do people have to check with the party convention to get their per diem of thoughts on every single thing?

I would actually welcome some teams nickname being the "Honkies." Maybe somewhere in TN and play it off as a tribute to the honkey tonk scene.

Not necessarily. I live around 3 miles from Dave Grohl, Tom Petty and Ron Howard, but the neighborhoods are..... well, let's just say 'markedly different'.

Unless by 'neighbor of mine' he means 'both live in Maryland'.

Casa de Snyder in Potomac, MD.

I always sort of considered that a binary thing; yes or no. I wasn't aware there were variations.
