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!!!
