    I think they should keep the name Washington Redskins they had it for years why change it. Its a football team with a name. Growing up every school or any Sport had a name for their team. NOBODY OWN”S the name Redskin. And yes I am native Ojibiway I love sports hockey football basketball every team needs a name. I think its a good name for the team, they had it for years Don’t Change. And the person or persons who thought of the idea to change their name PLEASE don’t make something out of nothing. DON”T CHANGE it just a name for your team. “I LOVE IT”.
