The inane dispute over the name of the Washington NFL team drags on with President Obama’s statement (Tribune Oct. 6) that team names like “Redskins” offend a sizable number of people.
That seems pretty hypocritical in view of the fact that the president is a Chicago Bears fan, while at the same time millions of people in other NFL cities are offended by the name “Chicago.”
My offering for a resolution of the problem would be: Keep the name, but replace the feathered Native American logo with that revered salad potato, The Redskin.
Perhaps Tim might even change his name to Tuber Tebow and start his career anew.
Heaven forbid there are any vanquished and now offended Welsh druids out there lest the Minnesota Vikings go through a similar angst.
