    2020 Football Team: A Capital Scandal

    I think the investigation the NFL is referencing is the on-going one started by Snyder when the first story came out. The lawyer was referred to the Redskins by NFL HQ. I do not believe there are parallel investigations.

    Washington Football Team Name Change

    This is 100% true. It is as if there is a book on how to do the right thing and they always seem to do the opposite.

    Washington Football Team Name Change

    So thoughts on this position from a member of the Osage Nation.... ***** The decision to use Football Team was “worse than doing nothing,” said Louis Gray, a member of the Osage Nation and former president of Tulsa Indian Coalition Against Racism. He believes the franchise is “extending the...

    2020 Football Team: A Capital Scandal

    \ Sure - being in DC I have seen Snyder make similar moves (and I never once said she was unqualified). There is an issue (name, minorities in the FO, etc) and within an extremely short period of time we get a new hire, a new policy, a new program. Seems a little too convenient that he...

    2020 Football Team: A Capital Scandal

    The rush to "make things right" begins. She has been around DC for quite some time, well qualified I guess. Not quite sure what her job will be, hopefully she picks someone good for the radio calls.

    Washington Football Team Name Change

    My apologies if I implied that they were related. Perhaps derivation was the wrong word to use. However, the confusion between the two leads to trouble. and I ran across this today..... https://t.co/qaFCq7yU0A?amp=1 This is an article in the Washington Post regarding changing the Texas...

    Washington Football Team Name Change

    Former season ticket holder here (keep the jokes to yourself please). Like many things that one grows up with, you do not give it a second thought. I was 5 and watched football with my father; his team was the Redskins and so was mine. I never gave it a thought that the term meant anything...

    M.L.B. Said to Be Pushing for major Overhaul of Minor Leagues, eliminate up to 40 teams.

    I read someplace (and I cant remember where) that the minors were full of "prospects and suspects". I doubt that many of the "suspects" skipped college scholarships to ride the buses in Princeton, WV. The Carolina League (High A) guys I knew were pretty certain where they fell in the pecking...

    M.L.B. Said to Be Pushing for major Overhaul of Minor Leagues, eliminate up to 40 teams.

    curly2 has BINGO! This is bullshit - they are going to raise salaries by putting a lot of players out of work. The Dream League is crap too - they all but admitted that the pay will be very low but offset by the "opportunity to impress MLB scouts". I think MiLB owners will get the short end...

    Scottish Fitba 2019-20: Sorry For Laughing

    I don't know shit about soccer but that jumped out to me when I looked at the score. I follow Celtic because a good friend of mine in the UK follows them. I asked him and he did not really answer, just a stream of (*&^%&*(*&^&*()(*&. Interested in hearing someone more rational.....
