A new member of the D.C. Council David Grosso, who was elected last year, is introducing a resolution calling on the Washington Redskins to change its name, saying the current name is a derogatory, racist name.
“It’s been a long time that we’ve had this name associated with Washington, and I think its time we take a stand and change it,” Grosso said.
Change the name to what? The name Redtails has been suggested.
Why stop there. Name the team after the Redtail Boa (pictured below)? Yea, that would be a real good name with a nice lovable mascot.
How many Redskin fans will be willing to replace their hog snouts for snake noses?
Maybe it’s just time for the newly elected Grosso to stick to learning how to shake down D.C. business for graft and kick-backs as a member of the D.C. Council and leave the Redskins alone.
