How the hell is this possible? I think the Skins have a REALLY good case for wrongful defamation especially since the name is historically to HONOR the first coach of the team and their roster which was over HALF Native American.
If the FCC really wants to play ball (no pun intended) then I’d be willing to give the ‘Skins a hand with research to prove just how fucked up the FCC’s position is.
They are exactly the opposite of reality. They want to penalize a team for HONORING its Native American ancestry. What next? Telling the Sioux they can’t call their land the “Sioux Nation” anymore?
The alternatives like the “Washington Senators”, they’re a lot worse. Considering that Congress is at 9% popularity, that would be a hate crime in itself!
This crap has to stop and this just might be the issue to do it on. The FCC doesn’t even to my mind have jurisdiction here. Not only is it not a “hate crime” as they claim… what right do they have to regulate language anyway?
The FCC has always been a department looking for a mission. What do they really DO for $350 million a year? Imagine that. If there were no FCC, I would be free to watch what I want and I’d save a couple bucks on my cable bill every year.
Sounds like a win-win to me.
