Schlereth: It is time to change the name

Former Redskins lineman Mark Schlereth: ‘It is time to change the name’
www.washingtonpost.com

“There’s no question, if you research the history of that name, it’s a pejorative term and it needs to change. I mean, you would never go into a conference of Native American people and walk up in front of them and refer to them as Redskins. It is a derogatory term, that’s its origins, and it is time to be a leader, from the standpoint of the NFL. High school(s) across America have changed their names. The NCAA has implemented policy to change those names. Why has the NFL shuffled its feet on this? I don’t know, but it’s time to change.”

Amen, Stink.
