Keep the Washington Redskins Name

426 Signatures Goal: 5,000

Recently the Mayor of D.C.,Vincent Gray stated the Washington Redskins organization must consider a name change if it is serious about moving from FedEx Field in Landover, Md., to a stadium inside D.C. proper. Redskins fans, including many Native Americans, are strongly against the name change consideration. The name is not meant to be offensive but is a long standing tradition and history with the team. In 1933, George Preston Marshall, the owner of the team, which was then located in Boston, renamed it the Boston Redskins in honor of the head coach, William "Lone Star" Dietz, an American Indian. When the team moved to Washington in 1937 it was renamed the Washington Redskins. As Washington Redskins fans and supporters, we do not agree with the consideration of changing the name of the team.


As Washington Redskins fans and supporters we also honor the history of all Native Americans across our country. - Petition to be emailed to Mayor Vincent Gray's office. -

    In a poll taken a while back, the majority of Native-Americans who were asked about this matter did not think the name "Washington Redskins" was offensive.
    This seems to basically be an issue for some white people who have way too much time on their hands.

    This politically correct B.S. Has got to stop! This team has had this name for a long time and it should not be changed! That's like changing the Yankees because "Yankee" is a derogatory term for city folk. Screw that! USA! USA! USA!
