    Yes, at one point in history it was. Now, it isn't. Language changes. Gay used to mean happy, now it doesn't. Redskins used to be a racial slur for Native Americans, now when anyone uses it, they know it is the football team in Washington they are referencing. The vast majority of Native Americans don't consider it a slur, so if they don't, it isn't.
    It's a pejorative term that was used to convey that Native Americans were lesser than the white man. While I am sure that there are scores or people today that use the term without intent to offend, their ignorance of or blind-eye to our past still does not make the term any less offensive.

    Well actually I am more offended by the Browns getting ass whupped last night but I saw it coming. Bye week against a very good 49'ers team. Hubris from being the Ravens last week. Anyway the NFC West seems to be the best division in football
    The addition of horns to the Viking helmet is a historical faux pas. It is more of an amalgamation of Viking symbols and not an offensive gesture.

    It's not a blind eye to the past. Yes, it was ONCE a racial slur. It's ignorance to not acknowledge that words change over time. If Native Americans don't consider it offensive, not sure why you do.

    And Vikings are chosen as a mascot because they use to rape and slaughter their enemies. It's football, not knitting. I'm technically Native American, and the only thing ever said to me was I was called "Tonto". Guess what, I didn't whine about it to my dad, for if I had he would have said "shut the fuck and deal with it, quit being such a pussy."

    People need to get thicker skins and worry about things that matter.

    The survey I could find to support this said they surveyed 500 people who identify as Native American - out of five million. Easy to pick an audience that will vote the way you want them to with those numbers. Kind of like conducting a survey to find out if blacks find the “n” word offensive and only surveying rappers and gang bangers. Maybe you have the results from a different survey, but if the majority of Native Americans truly don’t find it offensive anymore, I’d like to see that a lot more than five hundred native Americans were asked. Their opinion is the only one that matters.

    I fully expect the Rams to find their footing Sunday....this is as close to a ďmust winĒ as you can get this early in the season...coming off two loses they certainly donít want a second consecutive division lose that would result in a three game deficit in the west in week six...I imagine they would want to put the Niners in their place

    Yeah they have been struggling a little, but their still a really good team and their backs are against the wall....very dangerous...hopefully SF isnít feeling too good about themselves.

    It's not incorrect, you just don't agree with it. The same might go for your point and my disagreement, as well. There's grey where we're painting black and white.

    Maybe team names should not be based on groups of people. Animal names are always cool.
