    Yeah, but that’s racist and offensive and illegal to make a profit from.

    STG, every day it’s something. “Overload the system”

    So now they’re the Washington Team Formerly Known As The Redskins.
    Aside: Kindle auto fill doesn’t do Redskins.
    BlackBerry does but the native spellchecker doesn’t like it. Hmm, doesn’t like spellchecker either. Go figure.

    What about “redskin” peanuts? Are they racist? Dittos on potatos?

    When is Indiana going to get a new name? Sioux City? Horror.

    I am a native American, having been born in the US, and I am offended by people who claim to be “Native American” because of their Indian heritage (vague as it may be).

    …and if Indians were so proud and wonderful why are they whoring themselves out as casino operators (scalping the people who come through their doors)?

    And the administration puts another head on a pike to warn others.

    It’s not totally official yet— they’ve tried before. So maybe —- altho I do like your find.

    They could rename the team “The Washington Lobbyists” or maybe “The K-Street Raiders.” There’s a potent mascot for a team.

    How about a grassroots movement to mail redskin potatoes to the patten office. 50,000 anonymous packages containing just one [redskin] potato each.

    Just change the name to the Washington Unicorns, and go with the “pride” flag for the logo background. It would fit the place they represent.

    Keepit in a safe place in case you ever need to sell it on the red market.

    rickn8or 8: Washington Crusaders: well done, but of course offensive to moslems everywhere (including the ones in the White House and at State)

    Jay 11: Rename them the Washington Tyrants… ok, that was way better than mine.

    I figger they should be called the Washington Foreskins, given all the useless pricks infesting the city.

    And seein’ how the team is being given the shaft, that name ought to fit right in.

    I’ve been a Redskins fan since I was little. This name thing is an annoying distraction. I envy the fans who can wear their team’s jersey without worrying that someone’s going to shout “hate crime!” and throw blood on them.

    I’d rather change the owner. I could handle a change of name, except we’d lose the best fight song in all of sports.

    They should just drop the letter “s” at the end, put a picture of Obama on the helmets in place of the traditional Indian, and they can be the “Red’s Kin” in honor of the commie bastard in the WH.

    Don’t need the approval of the USPTO to use the term unless you want to sue someone for trademark infringement. Even then, since the ‘skins are a nationwide mark, the NFL can still probably sue anyone in the US.
    Hail to the Redskins!

    “Offensive to moslems” was the idea.

    (By the way, “muslims” don’t like to be called “moslems” which is why I do it.)

    The action of the patent Office is intended to distract from the IRS issue, the Benghazi investigation, real inflation and unemployment numbers, and anything else having any negative effect on the tyrant Ali-Bama’s regime.

    I also like the term “ukase.”
    … and not just ’cause it shows up in 20% of the crosswords I do.

    I like the way you think.
