On Tuesday, the D.C.Council passed a resolution asking the Redskins to change their name because the term is considered a racial slur to Native Americans.That same day, six members of the Minneapolis City Council voiced their disapproval of the name in a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and team owner Dan Snyder.

.By Thursday morning, hours before the Redskins will face the Vikings in Thursday Night Football, Minneapolis mayor R.T.Ryback joined the discussion".It has never been right to disrespect the indigenous people of our country, and it is especially wrong to do it in 2013 with the name of a team that represents our nation's capital", Ryback wrote on his Tumblr (via Sports Bog).One of those other politicians includes President Barack Obama, although Arizona governor Jan Brewer said last month that she didn't consider the name politically incorrect.In September, Goodell said "It is something that I want all of us to go out and make sure we're listening to our fans, listening to people who have a different view, and making sure that we continue to do what's right to make sure that team represents the strong tradition that it has for so many years".In May, Snyder spoke in unequivocal terms about the team name".We'll never change [it]", he said at the time".It's that simple.NEVER -- you can use caps".The team name of the Redskins has stirred up a discussion of wheather the Redskins should change ite name or not.

.Both sides stated their opinions.In my opinion, I don't think the name "Redskins" is politically incorrect.As the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he want all of the members to go out and make sure that team represents the strong tradition that it has for so many years.Changing name is not necessary.NFL fans can now cheer their team and show their true fandom - at a low price - with apparel and accessories from our online shop.Welcome to buy!Titans Mart Fantastic Jerseys is a leading provider of sporting goods from the NFL, NHL, MLB, NBA, NCAA, UFC and WWE, along with soccer leagues from around the world.
