    Bravo Czabe! There is no one in the sports media today who thinks as clearly as you do on this. (Or at the very least, among others in the sports media who also think clearly, you are the least afraid to speak the truth.)

    As long as those on the militant left are showing their “PC peacock feathers” (great term by the way) at every opportunity, I hope you keep fighting back.

    I’m about a liberal as it gets, and this whole name ‘controversy’ has me embarrased to be a liberal. This whole campaign is bullying, plain and simple. From the outright falsehoods put forth in that PSA during the NBA Finals the news organizations throwing away basic journalistic integrity by showing its ok to not report accurately if doing so conflicts with your personal opinion, it has been a headache.

    But, the biggest thing I have noticed that shows what a joke this whole ‘issue’ is comes from how these holier-than-thou sports personalities complain about being tired of dealing with the Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Greg Hardy stories, but they have no trouble constantly bringing the Redskins name issue back up. It proves how far the name changers will go to exploit a meaningless issue to make themselves feel important, but won’t tackle real, important subjects like domestic violence and child abuse. It’s too complicated for them. It’s so much easier for them to point their fingers at a Redskins fan and say “you’re a racist”….

    I don’t see eye to eye with you on a lot of things Czabe, but please keep banging the drum on this one (Cooley, too)

    Well said, Czabe.

    Just got to say that sports used to be an escape for me from drama of everyday life. Depressed about the economy, politics, world crisis, etc. turn on a ball game, maybe listen to some sports talk radio. But now things I once loved like the NFL have been totally infected with the politics of the day. Can I watch a damn game without hearing Bob Costas’ veiws on gun control? Can I watch football in October without a pinkout? Can I root for the Redskins (as I have my whole 36 years of my life) without being reminded that liberals hate the name? And at this point, football doesn’t even closely resemble the game I grew up loving. Does anyone understand the rules anymore? What’s a catch? What’s defenseless player? What’s the head and neck “area”?

    I don’t know, Czabe. They change my teams name and I might be done. Sometimes I wonder why still care. “This league” is a sinking ship. It’s already hit the iceberg…they just don’t know it yet.

    Deion’s partial “Redsk….” gaffe reminded me of that scene in Blazing Saddles when The GOV (Mel Brooks) started to say “The sheriff is a Ni …..” but stopping mid-word when he realized he was talking to the sheriff. You can bet Deion is still calling our team the Redskins when he’s not on air.
