So now we can have many Washington Redskin teams without worrying about trademark infringement?

Thought police are everywhere these days. I bet George Orwell never dreamed that the left would be the biggest threat to freedom.

Exactly what he dreamed, Tax. Check out 1984 again.

I didn't look at it that way.

But I guess the threat is anyone can now use the name and logo for merchandise.

Yes he did; that's why he wrote 1984 and Animal Farm.

The tyranny is the Corporatocracy or oligarchy if you prefer. They love it when people form left and right political camps. It distracts them from the truth - there is no democracy. They own you.

Pretending you're a Native American to get plush jobs and elected to the US Senate.




That's ok... as long as you're liberal.

Well I just went to the website and purchased a few hats... because if they ever do change their name.. the apparel will be for sale on eBay for 10 or 20 times the original value.

Well, before y'all go renouncing your citizenship and emigrating to the Republic of Klanistan where y'all can be free, there's a few tiny li'l facts you may wanna take on board. . .

1. This has happened before, in 1999, and it was overturned in court in 2003.

2. Even if the courts uphold the PTO, it'll be years before it takes effect.

3. Even if the courts uphold the PTO, dumb Danny hasn't lost his trademark. He's only lost Federal registration of his trademark:

a. He can still call the team whatever he wants.

b. He can still sue anybody that produces or sells knockoff gear.

c. Only thing he loses is criminal enforcement of his trademark privileges. He still has civil remedies.

4. Nothing in this decision, even if it's upheld, prevents dumb Danny or any of y'all from practicing your Gawd-given right to racial abuse.

The founding fathers hated Injuns, why can't football fans do it too?
It's a right.

Precisely.

Furthermore, the PTO granted the trademark. Trademarks are supposed to be forever. This is the wrong move. It brings back memories of the other time the Federal government used its power to require the Washington team to stop doing what it was legally entitled to do.

Well, if it don't apply to you, why are you commenting? Bored?

because I don't consider "The Redskins" to be a racist comment. It's the name of a sports team, not a commentary on a group of people.

Screw it... scrub the name. Give the babies what they want. And bill the NFL.


Wipe all of it and change the name to something that has zero to do with Indians. Change all of the names. Even force the FSU Seminoles to change it regardless of what the Seminole tribe says.

Would you support calling a team The N*ggers?

Whining? Seriously?


I'm saying change it now. It is clear the libs are tossing you a bone to make themselves feel so awesome. They could give two bleeps about Native Americans. Just look how Liz Warren stepped all over Native Americans and all you can do is whine about a name that was never meant to be derogatory and it wasn't until this PC wave started taking a vice grip on Merica.


Change the name and don't forget to kneel in thanks before your lib masters.
