Washington’s season-ending loss on Sunday also brought an official end to the Robert Griffin III era. Griffin, who didn’t play a down all season and will surely be cut this offseason, left the team as only he could: with a corny note.
Former NFL running back Clinton Portis has owed a lot of people a lot of money for some time now, and according to bankruptcy filings, the exact amount that he owes to various creditors is $4,857,659.50.
On Sunday, some social media manager got his or her Twitter accounts mixed up and made it abundantly clear that the @redskinsfacts account, allegedly run by a “growing online community of passionate Washington Redskins fans and others who support the team’s use of its name and logo,” is in fact being run by someone…
Washington is such a hilarious disaster, man. We’re not even done with the preseason, but the starting quarterback is shell-shocked and fed up, and the head coach is talking like a man who’s already in the middle of a 3-13 campaign. Here’s what Jay Gruden had to say to the press yesterday (via the Washington Post):
Washington wide receiver DeSean Jackson was talking some of that good stuff during a recent press conference, telling reporters, “I don’t feel no one could stop me. You could go get Darrelle Revis, Richard Sherman, whoever you want to get.” At today’s practice, Jackson hurt himself by running into a blocking sled.
Dan Snyder’s football team continues to be the biggest embarrassment in sports. To wit:
Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has been on record stating that she believes the Washington Redskins should change their name. Lately, however, she’s gone back to saying “Redskins” while talking about the team in public, and it might be because she’s trying to curry favor with team owner Dan Snyder.
The "Redskins" name controversy has played out all over America for years now, in precincts high and low. It's now turned up, though, in the last place you'd expect—Lancaster, N.Y. Some of the same spurious Indians defending the NFL team's name jumped in the small-town fray this week.
Dan Snyder had a lousy Native American Heritage Month. His team went 0-for-November, bottoming out in Indianapolis with RGIII on the bench and the owner's pet's career in worse shape than his left and right menisci. Plus there was that brutal New Yorker cover and a gloriously oblivious "Happy Thanksgiving" tweet sent…
As part of his campaign to convince you that his team's name isn't racist, Dan Snyder took in today's game with Ben Shelly, president of the Navajo Nation. Once again, Dan probably should have done a little more research.
Mark One Wolf, who sure looks like just another bogus Indian propped up by Dan Snyder, has added one more native-sounding name to his already massive ID stable.
Mark One Wolf was, for a time, a favored native in Dan Snyder's fight to save the "Redskins" nickname. "Native American backing team name is VIP at practice," read a Richmond Times-Dispatch headline. It was accompanied by an Associated Press photo of One Wolf in profile, as if to echo the team's logo. But that was…
According to a service that tracks the sales of NFL merchandise, nobody wants to own Redskins-branded apparel anymore.
This is kind of a big deal. In an editorial published yesterday, The New York Daily News announced that the paper will no longer refer to the Washington football team as the "Redskins," and will no longer print the team's logo. This isn't just a decision from the editorial board, as was the case when the Washington…
Vinny Cerrato phoned a Boston sports-talk station recently and tried to explain why Dan Snyder won't change his football team's now officially derogatory name. "It's not a money thing for Dan," Snyder's former sidekick claimed. Instead, Cerrato dropped some Freud on us.
Don Terry doesn't like the current name of the Washington football team. He hopes it goes away. And if that ever happens, he'll try to get paid.
What you see up there is taken from a VHS tape called Hail to the Redskins and produced by NFL Films in 1986. It's a compilation of highlights from the 50 seasons following the team's move to D.C. from Boston.
Former Washington linebacker London Fletcher was recently a guest on NBC's SportsDash, and he was asked about how he felt about playing for a team that has a racial slur as a name. His response, flagged by DC Sports Bog's Dan Steinberg, was surprisingly honest.
Lately, the Washington Redskins are having a harder time defending the team's name than the rest of the NFC East had defending the read-option last season. One of the more entertaining parts of Redskins owner Dan Snyder's effort has been his ongoing Indians-love-"Redskins" campaign, whereby the team calls attention to…
