Washington Redskins players have been advised not to speak about the “Redskins” controversy

washington redskinsThe debate about whether or not the Washington Redskins should find another something else to call themselves other than Redskins grows with each passing week.

On one side of this debate, there are those that oppose the use of the name “Redskins” because of its insensitivity to Native Americans. This group includes many media members that have vowed to no longer refer to the team as the Washington Redskins.

And on the other side of the debate, there are the folks that can’t fathom that type of change. Mainly because they have skin in the game. Case in point: Redskins owner Dan Snyder saying, “we’ll never change the name. It’s that simple. NEVER — you can use caps.”

But what we haven’t heard thus far is which side of the debate to Redskins players fall on. And it seems that the Redskins organization wants to keep it that way.

According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free-Press, Robert Griffin III was asked where he stands on the issue. And after giving a politically correct answer that wasn’t really an answer, he then told everyone present that Redskins players have been advised not to comment on the matter.

Good luck with hoping players don’t comment on this issue. If we set the over/under at a month before someone on the Redskins gives their opinion on the issue, I’m going under.

  1. Good for YOU, Daniel Snyder.
    Tell those P.C. clowns & b#stards to go rent a DVD / VHS of “Blazing Saddles” — Mel Brooks ‘genius’ makes fun of : black railroad workers, Chinese workers, hunchback lynch-men, gay dancers, Adolph Hitler, saloon girls, hookers, Nazis, dumb folks, Christian minister who gets his Bible blown up/shot thru !! Yes, there ‘s something for everyone.
    And everyone ‘farting’ around the campfire scene–“Would ya like some more beans, Mr. Taggert?”
    MAKE SURE you get the unedited unrated version. N-word, “OK well let the niggers and the chinks, but we don’t want th IRISH!”
    “Candy-gram for Mongo–Candy-gram for Mongo—-Candy-gram for Mongo.”

    Q: HOW was that film even allowed to be made?
    A: People weren’t as thin-skinned as they are now a days.
    IT seems every other week there’s a new P.C. crisis.

    Well in the words of that great debated W. Jeffries, “This conversation is ENDED !”

  2. Oh, no. I forgot Mel Brooks himself plays both the “GOV” ( governor ) AND an Indian chief with Rodney Allen Rippy as one of his children. HOW did I forget that?
