Washington Redskins Finally (Kind Of) Admit Their Name Is Offensive — But They Have A DISGUSTING New Excuse To Keep Their Mascot

no title

This is unbelievable!

The Washington Redskins are trying to preserve the trademark for their highly offensive nickname, and the NFL team is now going to great lengths to defend their position.

On Friday, the team — along with controversial owner Dan Snyder — filed an opening brief in an appeals court in the hopes that they could keep their nickname after a court just ruled the name was highly offensive.

But this opening brief has to be seen to be believed!

It seems the 'Skins are no longer arguing that their name is not offensive, which had been their argument up to this point.

NOW they are conceding it is offensive to some — but they're arguing that since trademarks have been granted to dozens of other highly offensive (and NSFW) names, the Redskins ought to be allowed to keep theirs, too:

Great work, California!

The Golden State has become the first in the nation to completely ban the use of 'Redskins' as a mascot for any public school sports team, with a bill signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown (pictured above) on Sunday.

The ban comes in direct relation to the ongoing controversy surrounding the NFL's Washington Redskins, and that team's refusal to change their mascot, which Native American advocacy groups and allies have continually said is racist and cruel.

With California's ban, the state joins communities — like Houston, Texas and Madison, Wisconsin — in ridding themselves of the racially insensitive term in the public realm surrounding sports and mascots.

California's bill, Assembly Bill 30, also known as the California Racial Mascots Act, prohibits public schools from using 'Redskins' for athletic mascots or nicknames beginning on January 1, 2017.

Governor Brown said of the bill, and other legal moves on racial issues:

Washington Redskins Owner Dan Snyder Brought The Navajo Nation's President To Their Game Despite The Controversy Surrounding The Team Name!

Filed under: ZportzFootball

no title

And this is supposed to make his team's name okay???

Dan Snyder, aka the owner of the Washington Redskins, refuses to change his team's offensive name, even after their trademark was pulled!

As if to prove that everything is fine, and that his moniker isn't offensive, he had Navajo Nation president Ben Shelly sit next to him in the owner's box on Sunday (above). Does that change anything?

The Washington Redskins Are REFUSING To Change Their Team Name Even After Today’s Landmark Ruling! Read Their Official Statement HERE!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooZportzFootballNFLGIFs

C’mon, Washington! Could you BE any more stubborn?!?

It seems NOTHING can convince Dan Snyder, the owner of the Washington Redskins, to change his team’s terribly offensive name.

Not only are millions of Americans calling on the NFL squad to swap their name for something else, today the US Patent and Trademark Office canceled ALL of the Redskins’ trademarks after finding the name to be disparaging to Native Americans.

But the organization announced soon after that they will not do away with the well-known name and that today’s decision will have ZERO effect at all on their team!


Their arguments for why they want to keep calling themselves the Redskins are pretty shocking.

You can read the team’s entire official statement…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
