Hail to the Redskins (even though this has not been a good year) !



The Redskins............


I agree with our Native American population---I am highly insulted by
the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue
that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would
exalt them as warriors, but nay nay….



We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political
correctness and courtesy, we must move forward Let's ditch The Kansas
City Chiefs, The Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians.



If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins
makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.



The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of the
militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. Offensive to us white folk.



The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team
named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to
that tragic war between the states that cost this country so many
young men's lives. Besides, the South shall rise again!!



I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion
among our football team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New
Orleans Saints, Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres.



The fact that there are birds on their shirts does not protect either
the Arizona or the St. Louis Cardinals---gone!



Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and
pillaged as their way of life. We are talking the horrible Oakland
Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the
Pittsburgh Pirates!



Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to
our children---and it is all about the children. The Green Bay Packers
and the St. Louis Rams--promote gay men. Wrong message to our
children.



The San Diego chargers promote irresponsible spending habits. Wrong
message to our children.



The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity--a
growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children.



The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children.



The Milwaukee Brewers---well, that goes without saying.... Wrong
message to our children.



So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to
rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become
involved with this issue, as they should. A high priority directly
behind efficiently managing our country's health care. Can I get an
amen?
