02:53 PM ET 10.19 | The Oneida Indian Nation purchased ads on two Washington D.C. area radio stations, WJFK and WPGC. They were trying to air ads against the Redskins name. CBS Radio Washington, which owns both the stations, declined to air them though. "Based on the amount of on-air debate, adding paid commercials from one side is not something that we think is beneficial for this discussion and for our audience," senior vice president of CBS Radio Washington said via email.

Seriously, are you interns dozing?

Station's rationale is sound.

Good. They shouldn't change their name. It's a slippery slope and next you know the Indians, Braves, Chiefs and any other team name that someone finds offensive will be up for change as well.

These teams should just ignore the criticism.

The logos of the Redskins and Indians may be more offensive than the actual names.

Didn't we talk about this like, 20 minutes ago?

Redskins logo looks like the old nickel. I think it's actually pretty good.

Agree.

But would they say the same if revenues were down? I doubt it.

Yeah, but Bob Probert sucks so I won't compliment the Blackhawks in any way, shape, or form. I'd as soon join a jihad than compliment the Blackhawks.
