The Washington Redskins and their forgotten dynasty

When the word dynasty comes up in NFL circles, almost everybody thinks of the same teams. The Cleveland Browns dominated the 1950’s, followed by the Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots in each subsequent decade.

New ad asking Redskins to change the name

The Oneida Change the Mascot campaign has a new ad out asking the Washington ‘Skins to change the name of the team. It’s simple and effective, though I doubt it will sway the minds of those who now see keeping the name as a matter of principle. The Oneida did not get permission from the NFL to use this footage so I don’t know how long this ad will last. Here it is.
