    Not so subtle swipe at the NFL.

    I don’t get it. It’s a pun on “going commando”?

    Will the new girls flag football be played shirts and skins? I’d watch that.

    At first I heard, in order to avoid possible negative issues associated with their name, they were going to change to the Maryland Redskins

    I still think “Washington Football Team” was the best name.

    One day everything on earth may be identified with a bar code or a QR code in the name of political correctness.

    Calling themselves “Commandos” would have made the joke better.

    “Skins” is only offensive if they have possession of the ball.

    The Native American Guardian Association has a petition to change the name of the team back. Apparently the name is only offensive to white saviors and not to Native Americans

    I suggested the Washington BIPOC+

    I said for years they should keep the name, change the logo. Adopting the redskin potato for the logo would have solved everything and they would not have had to change the name.

    When are sensible people going to stand up and say “enough of this nonsense! You can’t please everybody.”

    With the current warming, they may start off as the Skins, but they will be the Redskins in an hour or so.

    When I read a headline about people opposed to racially based HS team mascots here in Wisconsin, I figured the article was getting set to point out that our state harbors not only Indian team nicknames but also (based on a listing at MaxPreps, tinyurl[dot]com/onc4c9w) such “offensive” labels as Bishops, Fighting Cardinals, and Popes (Catholics); Blackshirts (Italy); Buccaneers and Pirates (Caribbean); Cōōns (in Cōōn Valley, GoComics nannybot); Cubans; Dons (Mafia); Elks (service clubs); Fighting Kellys and Irish (Ireland); Flying Dutchmen (Netherlands); Green Mountain Boys (New England, also boys); Highlanders (Scotland); Hurricanes and Thunder (meteorologists); Ledgers (accountants); Norse, Norsemen, Norskies, and Vikings (Scandinavia); Phoenix (Arizona); Rebels (southern USA); Spartans (Greece); Trojans and Fighting Trojans (Turkey); and Wizards (Hogwarts). People who are determined to feel offended should have a field day here in the Badger State.

    Commodes. But the thing that fills one has sold the team now.
