Well… I have never seen a Redskins flag at a KKK rally. Nor have the Redskins ever won games to support social policy towards Native Americans. There is...

Will the Washington Redskins Be a Contender Again Soon?

The 2014 season was one to forget for Redskins fans. The team finished 4-12 and suffered nine double-digit losses. Multiple injuries and total dysfunction resulted in another terrible season.
