The Redskins are currently leading their website with two employees at a high school that still uses the name “Redskins” for its sports teams. And guess what? They like it!
A separate but seemingly related Larry Michael propaganda video features another person from another high school that uses the nickname. I’ll warn you, though: It’s enough to turn your stomach.
The nascent PR campaign has been called out as passive-aggressive (and worse) by the likes of Deadspin, USA TODAY Sports, SB Nation and Pro Football Talk in no time flat. And that’s going by Internet time, which is FAST.
Either way, this much is clear: Despite what seems like slow-building momentum for a name change, the Redskins are digging in and won’t be going by anything else anytime soon.
