Comments: All of a sudden, "Redskins" is a nasty term

Costas is a moron who likes to hear himself talk. He should stick to sports and STFU about politics; after all, he's being paid to talk about sports.

And a lot of Native Americans in North Dakota were very upset when the NCAA made UND drop its Fighting Sioux nickname.

There is a high school in eastern Washington state with 90+% native american students, and the team name is the "Redskins."

And another high school in Nebraska with 65% native american students, also with the team name "Redskins."

When I first read about this I thought it might not be true, so I searched for the schools and the names were verified.

Great blog you have.

Good thing I skipped over Costas' rant thanks to the magic of my DVR.

He's not even a Native American? Yeesh. The Elizabeth Warren comparison is spot on. Or Obama, since he once tried to pass himself off as a Native in college.

Call them the Washington Reds. Red standing for DEBT and COMMUNISM.
