|FYI my birthday is in 3 months|
What does this mean? Fuck if I know. Some people think that this is the start to changing the name. Others say nothing will happen because the team will fight this and appeal until they can’t appeal any longer. Now I’ve been 100% transparent on the issue of the Redskins name change since forever. I don’t care. No, that’s not what I mean. I don’t care if a few people feel upset about the name. DEAL WITH IT. If you feel disparaged or discriminated against because of a football team’s nickname then that is a YOU problem, bro, and you need to evaluate what is important in your life. But that’s just me not caring about other people’s feelings. I never took offense to Dave Chappelle’s white guy voice while he was in white-face.
As I said the last time that I wrote about this, I’m just a really lazy guy. I like where my team wardrobe is at. I have absolutely no desire to throw all of it out and spend money on new threads. I don’t want to do that. While you are making a very small minority of people feel better about themselves by changing the name, you are presenting a much, MUCH larger sect of fans with a gigantic bill at NFL Shop. That is not cool, bruh.
Here’s the thing: It’s not going to change. It never will. It does not matter who puts pressure where. Dan Snyder (who, by the way, is without question the least racist owner in team history—go check out George Preston Marshall and Jack Kent Cooke’s resumes!) doesn’t give a FUCK about what people say about him. He does things his way. He sues fans who can’t afford season tickets anymore. He runs numerous Six Flags locations out of business. He refuses to change the FedEx turf away from natural grass. He doesn’t care. No six figure politician is going to tell this ten figure owner how to run his business. EVER.
I mean, really, who the hell is going to actually MAKE Snyder change the name anyway? Congress? Yeah right. If there is one group of people that are hated more than the Redskins front office it is politicians. Roger Goodell? He doesn’t even have the sack to punish Jim Irsay. The 31 other NFL owners? LOL! It’s the same reason why the NBA owners didn’t want to actually have to vote out Sterling. Because when you turn on one, the closets are going to open for everyone. Is the Redskins name hurting profits? Last I checked, this was still the third most valuable franchise in the NFL and would sell for AT LEAST 2 billion dollars if Snyder put it up for sale (he won’t).
I’ll say it again. I get it. It’s embarrassing when the organization releases a statement claiming how the Redskins moniker represents pride and history. Just shut up with that. Say nothing. Hell, maybe these Indian groups wouldn’t be so mad if the team was consistently worth a shit. Did we ever think about that? Everyone hates losers. I know for a FACT that when the Mississippi Sambos won five straight titles, they were beloved by all of America. Maybe if you are a perennial playoff contender, Indians would have the name less. IT’S WORTH A SHOT!
|Gonna recommend playing this at my joint diaper party tomorrow. Oh yeah, that's happening.|
And if you don’t think that this is a big deal then you are wrong. Some of you should be damn thankful that Dan Snyder is as stubborn as he is. Because if there ever comes a time that he caves, the dreaded and hated PC Police is coming north to Lake Erie and they’re only going to start with Chief Wahoo. It will end with the Indians name going bye bye after that. You just watch. It’s a slippery slope indeed and the easy solution/answer might not always be the right one. Hail to the fucking REDSKINS 4 LIFE, BRAH.
That will do it for me this week. Monday is going to be different around here. I start my new job and will probably not be commenting much if at all so I need to come up with a topic in which my valued opinion is not necessary. Hopefully a Fuckeye gets arrested over the weekend.
