The Washington NFL team is undergoing a 'thorough review' of its offensive nickname … finally

2 min read

It’s always been offensive. It simply took this moment in history to get the ball rolling:


“In light of recent events around our country and feedback from our community, the Washington R******s are announcing the team will undergo a thorough review of the team’s name. This review formalizes the initial discussions the team has been having with the league in recent weeks.

“Dan Snyder, Owner of the Washington R******s, stated, “This process allows the team to take into account not only the proud tradition and history of the franchise but also input from our alumni, the organization, sponsors, the National Football League and the local community it is proud to represent on and off the field.”

In other words, this has become untenable — both morally and financially.

Of course, it took financial pressure to make it happen, because Snyder was never going to do the right thing on his own.

Let’s hope this happens soon. And then this logo can be retired as well:

As a basic white dude, I find this pretty funny, actually.

Hail to the Washington team … assuming they actually follow through.

Hey, maybe they can give Kaepernick a job now, too.
