I remember when we had the guys that wire tuxes at games. I think they were called the Blue Lights. What other long time groups do we have? Skid row and Elvis?

Sneeder will NEVER move that team back to DC. Never. It's a brand new stadium fer krikies sake. He's not changing their name either.

Why on earth would the Redskins ever want to move to DC?

The Earl of Bud was the "tequila beer dancer" at the Aud....  Earl was a fireman in his real life.

I think the DC Mayor is saying if the Redskins ever want a new stadium in downtown DC they will have to change the team name, personally I agree with you I don't know why they would want to go DC, its not as bad as it used to be but they got a good thing in Maryland why move

I've told several of my friends who are Washington fans that the team should just drop their logo and slap a redskin potato on the side of their helmets. End of problem. Or would that be offensive to spuds? ;)

The Earl of Bud made a return after several years during Game 5 of the 2007 ECF against Ottawa. Being an elimination game (which the Sabres ultimately lost in OT) during the President's Trophy season, the crowd was buzzing as if it were electrically supercharged starting long before puck drop. But when the Earl of Bud was put up on the jumbotron, the already buzzing (in more ways than one) crowd absolutely erupted into a frenzy. It was as incredible moment, and I won't forget it (even though the series was a dud).

The difference is that "Redskin" was once used as a derogatory term.  "Seminole" is the actual name of the tribe (and, incidentally, the Seminole nation gave it's stamp of approval to it).  I think taking away the "Fighting Illini" (which the NCAA did) was stupid because that was hardly derogatory.  But I can see that people might get offended at "Redskin."  (I like the potato idea, though. :w00t: )

Yes I am sure if you " Pack Cheese" for a living you might be offended by that name & "Cheese Head" could also be offensive


Yes "Redskin" was once used as a derogatory term but this is what I mean, first it will be offensive terms, then next it will be any & everything

we already live in a PC dominated society, where now compliments are saw as bad taste, how far do want to got down that road till you can't turn back
