    I have no affiliation to the Redskins and I really couldn’t care less about their name, but this seems like it will be a short-lived “victory.” The issue isn’t going away because of a Supreme Court ruling. Multiple states have already banned native american mascots. The Redskins will eventually be forced to change their name. It’s just a matter of time.

      The Supreme Court is the highest court, it would over rule any law a state would try to pass.

      Not sure how you’re coming up with this conclusion. From the results of the survey two years ago to this Supreme Court ruling to the fading interest of the bulk sports media to continue prosecuting this matter, this issue is all but dead. Sure, the die-hards, like Blackistone, Wise, Bomani Jones, and Drew Magary will continue banging the drum on this issue… but, the vast majority just aren’t listening anymore.

        It’s not going to be decided by polls or court rulings. None of that saved the North Dakota Fighting Sioux, the Miami Redskins, or the hundreds of other teams that have already changed their names. This is a matter of public opinion.

        It doesn’t matter to me, one way or the other. I’m just saying if I had to guess, I would say the name will be changed within the next 10 years.

          Seriously Joe. A couple of years ago, we had p.c. media and tons of pols (including the then prez) demanding the name be changed. The issue was hot as a flaming fireplace poker. The anti- name Wash Post did a poll that, to the Wash Post’s dismay, found 91% of Nat Amer either support the name or don’t give a crap. That ended the p.r. war. Now the Supreme Court has UNANIMOUSLY stomped on the legal strategy that the anti-namers were using. This issue is dead, dead, dead. Your f’n great grand children will be watching Redskins game..

      If you don’t care and have no affiliation, then why troll what is so obviously a correct ruling? Pity you don’t you have anything better to do…

      Wise (not a Washingtonian – not now, not ever) blocks everyone on Twitter who dares to disagree with him, so he’ll be in his bubble-wrap.

    It’s too bad Miami University didn’t do the same and had kept their long and storied ‘Redskins’ name. Great to see someone actually stand up to the bullies.

    Funny, I drove through an Indian Reservation last year, and what was the big sign on the side of their schoolhouse? “Home of the Redskins”…..
