09:07 AM ET 10.06 | The controversy regarding the name of the Washington football team continues to get stronger. The efforts of the organization to defend it do, too. In response to a remark from President Barack Obama that owner Daniel Snyder should think about changing the name "Redskins," the team has issued a statement not from a P.R. specialist but from a lawyer. And, possibly, all that that implies.

President should be concerned more about the government shutdown than the name of an obsolete NFL team

October 6, 2013  09:21 AM ET

Oh oh, there goes Obama's future invites to the owners box.

The sun will always rise, the Redskins will always be the Redskins and the media will always be a pathetic group of losers.

These things are constants.

Snyder wanted to change the name to the Washington Congressmen by the NFL deemed it too offensive.

You could try the Washington House of Representatives, but then you'd have to shut the team down and send everybody home!

Now that's offensive.

This is what happens when stupid people have time on their hands.

Mornin' Canuck. Not much in the hockey threads this morning despite 11 games yesterday. The interns are dozing I guess.

Is Snyder trying to look like JoePa?

Hey Ice how's it going. I'm sure they'll have something up as soon as they read the NY Post or To***to Sun.

Fixed

I think Dan Snyder is behind this whole thing just to get their fans to shift their focus from the teams performance on the field.

The world is right!
The Leafs are 3-0

This is so easily fixable. Snyder just has to legally change his last name to Redskin. Worked for Paul Brown .

HA!

Thank you. Couldn't resist.

Snyder brought in a group of fashion consultants and has been working to develop a 'football look.' The early feedback was that the Jerry Sandusky look didn't receive positive feedback from market groups.

The POS needs to stay out of it. Come to think about it he just needs to get and go back to his homeland.
