Adios to the Redskins

The NFL goes full SJW:

The Washington NFL franchise, 10 days after announcing that a “thorough review” of its name will be conducted, has made a preliminary decision.

At the end of the current review, the old name will be retired.

“On July 3rd, we announced the commencement of a thorough review of the team’s name,” the franchise announced in a statement. “That review has begun in earnest. As part of this process, we want to keep our sponsors, fans and community apprised of our thinking as we go forward.

“Today, we are announcing we will be retiring the [current] name and logo upon completion of this review.”

It’s going to be amusing to see all the journalists trying to thread the needle explaining why the Redskins had to go, but the Chiefs don’t, right up until the narrative shifts again and the Chiefs become the target du jour.
