Found October 17, 2013 on Gamedayr:

The NY Daily News posted photos of the Nazi, Confederate and Washington Redskins flags next to one another along with the byline, “Archaic Symbols of Pride and Heritage.”

  • Whoever thinks the Redskins logo should be compared to the Nazi flag needs their freaking head examined. There are far more important things going on in society to worry about. If the Redskins change their name they should be ashamed of themselves for caving to the minority of people and soapbox politicians who whine about this. I'm not a Redskins fan, but to hellll with anyone who believes they should change their name. The ones complaining for the most part do not even have a Native American heritage. These whining sniveling complainers need to just shut their pieholes and go find something else to complain the clown in the White House. Polls taken with Native Americans have clearly shown that well over 90% could care less about the name and actually feel it is a compliment to their proud heritage. Should we just erase all of these names and allow the history of Native Americans to fade into obscurity forever? If there is any team that needs to change's the ridiculous and insulting logo that the Cleveland Indians continue to use. Let's face it, Native Americans have NEVER looked like that. Living in Arizona where I know many Native Americans, they all agree that the name Washington Redskins was never intended to be a slight or an insult to these proud people. I would think our government leaders could find more important things to focus their attention putting American back to work...YES, also Native Americans. Enough with all this nonsense already.
  • If a name or a picture on a helmet upsets you, then your problems are far more serious than you think. Worrying about the name Washington Redskins is as lame as it gets. Get a life.

RG3 realizes the need to run more

This season, coming off of a devastating knee injury, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III seems to have forgotten what made him such an explosive player last year - his speed and ability to tuck the ball and run.

NY Daily News editorial cartoon likens Redskins logo to Confederate Flag, Swastika (pic)

Nothing subtle about that. It wasn’t until I saw this editorial cartoon in the New York Daily News that it occurred to me that, why yes, the Washington Redskins logo is exactly like the hateful symbols of Nazism and racial injustice. It’s nice to see that to some extent, Godwin’s Law is still in effect, […]The post NY Daily News editorial cartoon likens Redskins logo to Confederate...

RGIII knows that defenders love to hit the quarterback and he is a target out there. He drew two personal foul calls on Barry Church on Sunday and now he is admitting that he uses tactics to draw personal fouls on defenders: “There will be situations, and that’s why guys don’t want to pull up,” Griffin said. “It’s happened in the past with Michael Vick or someone like...

Is RGIII Really Wearing A Wig, Or Did He Just Let His Dreadlocks Flow?

As you may know, October is breast cancer awareness month, and the NFL has thrown itself full force into the cause.  Redskins quarterback RGIII and cornerback Josh Wilson donned wigs to show their support for cancer survivors.  But we’re wondering, is it possible that that’s RGIII’s actual hair?  The length looks about the same.  That’d be something, huh?
