Washington Redskins President Bruce Allen says team has gotten plenty of support since Twitter debacle

Allen_firing_McDonnell_982wIt seems that the front office of the Washington Redskins will never get it. After being called out by Sen. Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) for not changing the team’s name, the Redskins launched #RedskinsPride hashtag on Twitter which backfired tremendously.

So instead of letting everything calm down, team president Bruce Allen felt like he had to make a statement. For some strange reason, Allen feels like he has the support of their fans in regards to the Redskins’ name.

“The social media is the way people get information now, and our fans have spoken very loudly in support of what we’ve been doing,” Allen said in a phone interview Monday. “We got a very good response from our fans.

“Thousands of our fans responded, including hundreds of Native Americans, saying we are their favorite team. I do think that’s the message we’ve been hearing.”

Allen can’t be reading some of the stuff I read because I saw no support whatsoever about this issue. This is obviously a dark cloud that is going to be sitting over this organization for a long time.

    Please, these columns are written for a response and web hit. Everyone of these writers are on the Harry Reid bandwagon but why were they not two years ago when Reid had to issue a public apology to the president for making racial comments about him. Reid is a joke , these columns bashing Snyder and Allen are a joke and this whole its for the Native Americans thing is a joke. If its just a team name as so many out here in the writing world state then why the big fuss to change it. Its not to help the Native Americans its about helping Harry Reid build racial stability in his office again. The writers pick it up because they know its a hot button issue, but they must let any crack with a computer contribute to these sports pages today. You all single handedly are ruining professional sports, so many analyst and so many wrong comments. Its your right to like the team you like, its your right to think something is wrong, but just cause we think something is wrong or right to us does not give us the power to over rule others passions and opinions. I don’t like your column but I tolerate it, you should do the same with the Redskins team name and get on with your life.

  4. Hey Allen…and the rest of the Redskins organization…shut up and just focus on making the “Skins competitive again so the rest of the NFL can talk about how tough it is to play, and win, in the NFC East…that’s your focus…
