Now Entering Russ's World
Everyone that is in or around the NFL knows that the Washington Redskins are a team that is rebuilding their organization and do not actually have higher expectations heading into next season. Even though they have to spend this year building up their team instead of competing for championships, does not mean they want to do a complete overhaul of their personnel or their name which has seen a resurgence of criticism from pro-native American groups. This most recent rebirth of court battles over the teams name actually ties it to a Supreme Court ruling involving the confederate flag and the State of Texas denial to put it on a license plate. The group that wants to make the team change their name believes this ruling helps them by showing the government does not have to allow for the protection of the teams trademarked name because it is offensive to Native Americans.
