Philly Inquirer Bans 'Redskins'
Because it's a day that ends in "Y" - another story has emerged on the Washington Redskins moniker.
It goes without saying that many publications, including SI.com, on a national level, have chosen to go this route.
That's fine. Everyone has their choices.
As the publisher of RedskinsReport.com, I am in a difficult spot in terms of covering this issue.
Many are once again calling for the name to change. The argument will only get louder and louder.
I have to choose what deserves attention and coverage. It was my decision to write about Ali Krieger and Spike Lee.
It was also my decision to mention 3-time Pro Bowler, Michael Bennett's opposition and it was also my editorial choice to write this about the Philadelphia Inquirer.
I understand many of you are exhausted and I would use stronger descriptive words but I'll keep it at that.
Redskins fans - we have an obligation here at RedskinsReport.com to cover all major news stories and items of interest involving the Washington Redskins.
Also, that's their legal name and trademark.
That's what we will provide moving forward at RedskinsReport.com until someone above me tells me to do something else.
I hope you understand and realize at heart - I am a football guy trying to cover a football team.
However, after 11 years of near daily coverage - the Washington Redskins organization has always been much more of a circus than a football organization.
That will not stop. It might slow down. It might get better on the field and in the front office and we promise to be selective in what we cover when it comes to the name issue, allowing anyone who reads these words to decide what they are more comfortable with.
