Redskins Name Change

In an effort to combat Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid’s attempt to force a Redskins name change, Washington’s PR team decided to launch a #RedskinsPride social media campaign that encouraged fans to show support for the team name.

Unfortunately, the result wasn’t what the team expected and even helped out Senator Reid’s cause.

It looks like the Redskins are going to fight this tooth and nail to no avail. I expect they will be forced to change the name within the next year or two.
