The Redskins may End up in the Supreme Court

The harried Redskins may have something new to contend with, on top of sucking at football.  Several American Indian activists are attempting to take their long running dispute over the Redskins’ logo to the Supreme Court.  The activists claim that Washington’s trademark is racially offensive and should be changed.  This case has been batted around the lower courts for some time, and rulings have gone back and forth through the appeals process.  Whether or not the case will actually be heard has yet to be seen.  The Supreme Court hears very few cases, despite that thousands are submitted each year.  For the time being, it seems that the Redskins are safe.

  1. Take the policy I take when people are offended at something that I say.. “I am sorry that you are offended” Sounds like an apology, but is really condescension..

  2. Ooh, I hope they have to change their name. Obviously it’s an ethnic slur, plus it’ll make Dan Snyder really angry.
