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