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:

NFL Players Union Appeals Ray Rice's Indefinite Suspension! They Think He's Being Punished Twice!

Filed under: ZportzFootballNFL

ray rice press conference doodle opt

Um, do you know what he did? Why SHOULDN'T he have a punishment that fits the crime, especially if the first punishment was waaaay off?

After video of former Baltimore Raven's player Ray Rice's brutal abuse of his now wife Janay surfaced, everyone pretty much came out against him.

Though now it looks like someone is on his side… even if he sorta does pay them to have his back: the NFL player's union is stepping up for Rice, having already appealed his indefinite suspension.

We hope they feel good about doing this (which is sarcasm, because they shouldn't.).

Great. Just great.

Ray Rice has been condemned in the public eye and indefinitely suspended from the NFL, but that doesn't mean he isn't trying to get his job back.

It's being reported that Rice is planning to appeal the NFL's decision to suspend him after that awful elevator abuse footage surfaced.

Rice is planning on appealing the NFL's decision through the NFL Players Association.
