Just because they named their franchise the Redskins it doesn't correlate to the killing of native americans.. Only liberals like you will twist the name and give it a impractical meaning.
If anything just name the team "Skins" kinda like how the Tampa Bay Rays.
Redskins is a slur. They weren't using it as a slur but it is a slur. Why would the NFL want one of their team names to be a slur?
Is it a huge deal? No. But that doesn't mean it should be ignored and left alone forever. I'm not feeling the argument that a football team's name HAS to be left a slur because it's fans will miss it too much.
Essentially if it's such a "who gives a shit" thing, then you change the name.
