US Strikes Down Redskins

Sounds like a tagline for a John Wayne movie, doesn’t it?

The US Patent Office this week voted to revoke six trademarks for the Washington Redskins, find that the term was “disparaging” to Native Americans.

The disparaging term is “Redskins,” by the way. The term “Washington” is disparaging on a much wider scope.

This doesn’t mean that the NFL team will have to change its name, and management says it will appeal the decision. But, just in case, they may be shopping for a new name anyway.

Immediately thrown out of the mix was the Washington Senators. With a name like that, the front office fears nothing will ever get accomplished.
