The U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider the right of Pro Football, Inc. to use an ethnic slur as the trademark of the NFL team in the Nation’s Capital. This was no endorsement of the name; the decision was based on a technicality. If shame can’t convince Dan Snyder and company into abandoning the trademarked racial slurs and stereotypes, if the front office discounts the bad karma the name has brought, perhaps this abysmal season — and decade — may encourage them to re-brand the team with a new name and start over.
Come to think of it, given their 4-11 record, DC players and coaches might benefit from similar re-branding after next week’s game. We suggest entering the Federal Witness Protection Program.
