    The Washington Redskins aren’t the only NFL team whose name bothers some Native Americans. The Kansas City Chiefs should also change their name to avoid giving offense, according to Amanda Blackhorse, the lead plaintiff in the case that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office just decided against the Redskins. “I’m not sure there’s anything the…

    I get the Redskins compaints. But to complain about the Chiefs? This is going to get zero traction from the public (I hope).

    They can do one, people are stupid if they can't see the difference between the Redskins name and the Chiefs. The problem these days is that everyone seems to find a way to be offended by something or other, where will it stop ?

    She just hurt her case for the redskins now. Now shes showing her true colors thats she is just after money and attention cuz her excuse for redskins thats its a slur and racial but with the chiefs its not so she has no excuse to go after the chiefs. I wouldnt be suprised to see the judge dismiss it all. Or atleast thats what I would do. I dont see and never thought of redskins being a slur. I bet everyone thinks of indians and dont know what the meaning is and who cares. They just lost all merrit for their case in my book.

    610 sports has a podcast of Danny Parkins talking about this on 6-25. The argument looks to be more about the "mocking" of their culture with the tomahawk chop and the other Indian related things the fan base does, some of it queued by the organization.

    I think the belief is that if the name is changed that the "offensive" behavior would stop.

    If you haven't heard Parkins take it's worth a listen.

    I find many things offensive about this entire thing. I am a all american, my family is pre revolutionary war, so I have all kinds of mixed blood in my family. Kiss my behind, and take your name changing buffalo excrement and shovel back to where it came from Amanda Blackhorse. It is you that is making all this racist or derogatory, instead you should feel the opposite. You should feel honored that your heritage is being remembered.
