Costas is a sanctimonious hypocrite.  How many times has this clown used the term "Redskin" in his job; now he's running like mad to jump on the "ban the name Redskins" bandwagon.

Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

Not only that, he makes the case for it to be a trivial issue, with very few taking offense, and some native Americans taking pride in the name. And then concludes with hand wringing that would make any liberal proud.

Bob Costas is past his prime. Go away Boob, er Bob.

If they changed their name to the Washington Shrimp, would Bob take that as a slur to those as vertically-challenged as he?

Yeah, I was watching the Redskin/Cowboy game and almost decided to skip their halftime show when I saw that this twit was going to opine on this. The teaser said they'd review the earlier games and go a little in-depth on the Saints/Patriots game as well, but Costas ended up crying the majority of the time. That little tool is just doing what his Lord Obama told him to do, but it's annoying to many football fans. Costas pulled this same stunt last year over gun control - idiot NBC liberals can't keep their politics out of even a football game.

As a Native American, I am very insulted, not by the name "Redskins" but by all of these people trying to erase every instance of Native culture from society just so they can have an issue to play 'champion' of to act like they are caring. In reality, Redskins is NOT insulting. Even ESPN did a poll of Native Americans a few years ago and over 90% said it wasn't insulting. At that, the origin of the word was an honor and something Natives called each other's warriors (based on warriors painting their faces red). Heck, the State name Oklahoma translates roughly to Red Skin and was a word to honor warriors.

I usually don't watch the Sunday night game for that very reason.

And in spite of the facts, the left has decided Redskins is offensive. By virtue of controlling the media, the left has made the Washington professional football team nickname an issue.

It's instructive to watch this play out. It shows the power of the left, and it illustrates that the left doesn't need reason or logic to push a point.

I find the name Washington insulting to Native Americans. We don't want to be associated with that cesspool.
