So you can't name your team based on people who were shat upon, but you CAN name them after the people who directly did the ****ting?

Makes no sense. But whatever.

Let's just not pretend this is just about "Redskins" Virtually every major sports franchise that a PC argument can be made for will become a target sooner or later. If they haven't already.

The question is how much do we want to sanitize our full history, including our sports history, in the name of politically correct bull****? Where does this end?
