It was said out of reverence, out of pride to the American Indian. Even though it was called a Redskin, what are you going to call them, a Brownskin? This is so stupid it's appalling, and I hope that owner keeps fighting for it and never changes it, because the Redskins are part of an American football history, and it should never be anything but the Washington Redskins. That's the way it is.
"Its been the name of the team since the beginning of football. It has nothing to do with something that happened lately, or something that somebody dreamed up. This was the name, period. Leave it alone. These people are silly asinine, actually, in my opinion."
And he continued the strong words in the interview:
"It's all the political correct idiots in America, that's all it is," Ditka said. "It's got nothing to do with anything else. We're going to change something because we can. Hey listen, I went through it in the 60s, too. I mean, come on. Everybody lined up, did this. It's fine to protest. That's your right, if you don't like it, protest. You have a right to do that, but to change the name, that's ridiculous. Change the Constitution we've got people trying to do that, too, and they're doing a pretty good job."


He is kind of making me think the name should actually be changed now....
Ditka has always been a hot head. You ever notice he tries to talk so fast sometimes that you can't really even understand what he's saying, lol. He should be replaced on the show. He's jut not entertaining to watch. I think there are plenty of guys they could find that would be better. Get Shanny in there, hahahahahaha, KIDDING !!!
