JBL Thinks The Washington Redskins Should Change Their Name

John Layfield feels the Washington Redskins should change their name. The following is an excerpt from a recent blog:

I’m a huge NFL fan, eventhough my Cowboys have caused me more grief than happiness this century. I love the rivalry with Washington-but what is the problem with changing the name “Redskins”, it is a derogatory term and no team would now be allowed to use it. It’s not like ‘Braves’ or Warriors’, it’s a slur-and my opinion is they need to change it.

Changing the name is the right thing to do in my opinion-it doesn’t change the team or their terrific history as one of NFL’s great clubs.

    Though I do agree with JBL that the term Redskin is racist. I find it odd that JBL is saying this, this being from the man who did a Nazi salute when on tour in Europe and then got fired from CNBC for it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RV9NQnsRAO8 But if he really means it, great. I guess a bigot can learn
