Holy shit, it's happening. Is this actually happening? It feels like it's happening. Hours after FedEx requested the Skins change their name, Nike has now pulled all Redskins off of Nike.com.
I want a camera on Dan Snyder right now. He has SWORN up and down, left and right, that he will never change the name. But like…maybe he's had a change of heart? Maybe the NFL is telling him he must? Can they even do that? I have no idea what is going to happen, but I'm in favor of a name change, ESPECIALLY if it makes Dan Snyder cry.
And remember, it's just a logo to try and get you to spend money. The history of the team still exists. Changing the name isn't the end of the world. The players who we love don't cease to exist. Now we wait and see if this means something bigger/what happens next.
