Washington Redskins to Washington Post: Stop using our name
The Washington Redskins apparently have a new target. Now that they're done suing season ticket holders, and litigation against a journalist isn't enough, they have a new message to local news outlets.
The Yahoo! Sports blog Shutdown Corner says that the franchise asked the Washington Post to drop "Redskins" from the title of their "Redskins Insider" blog.
The Post also conspicuously dropped the Redskins moniker from one of their Twitter profiles, yet the profile image associated with the account still prominently displays the team's name.
This hasn't stopped D.C. Sports Bogger Dan Steinberg from having a little fun.
I'm now going to cover a D.C. United event. No, no, check that; I'm going to cover a Washington pro soccer team event. Sorry.
ESPN NFL analyst Trey Wingo also got in on the fun.
The Redskins say the move is being made to protect their brand; the team name will remain on programs directly associated with the Redskins Broadcast Network and on Comcast SportsNet, the team's official broadcast partner.
