HoopsHype Washington Redskins rumors

October 7, 2014 Updates

With the Nationals playing an elimination game in San Francisco and the Redskins hosting the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks at FedEx Field in primetime, Monday was a big day for D.C. sports fans. Which means it was a big day for Oklahoma City Thunder star and Prince George’s County native Kevin Durant. Durant, whose Natitude is well established with a curly ‘W’ tattoo on his stomach and a custom Nationals jersey, watched the Redskins’ loss to Seattle in a burgundy and gold No. 35 jersey with his name printed on the back. He also wore a Redskins ski cap. Washington Post

Phil Jackson: But Redskins is a derogatory name. Braves isn’t, that’s not a derogatory name. But the Redskins is. It’s like calling someone Blackskins or Whitey, or whatever. So this has been an issue for some time with me and I haven’t worn it on my sleeve. The resistance that football has about it is kind of strange in some ways. It’s all being brought out to a greater degree now that the NFL’s not looked upon as they’re running the show, or they’ve got all the answers or whatever. I think it’s gonna bring negative impact towards this Washington team, and I can’t understand why you want to have a negative feeling towards your team. You want to have positive things about your team. New York Post
