Should Redskins change name?
The Washington Redskins have faced constant, if not always heavy, pressure to change their name in recent years. This week, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office canceled the team's trademarks on the basis that the name is "disparaging to Native Americans." The ruling is being appealed and affects only trademarks registered between 1967 and 1990, meaning the current logo is still protected. Still, it's another example of the growing movement against this long-standing moniker.
