"Sort of stuff I think the name of the team changed. That's the most important part of the story, and now you just move on and you move forward. And you know full well that the owner of this team who who has device just told you stands to certainly rake in a lot of dough from a new marketing campaign, but we'll see if that works. We'll see if that rings hollow. Because to me, it would ring very very hollow. If I knew that my owner was doing this against his own desires that he was he was. Not Literally like at the tip of the bayonet forced into this situation, but he was financially forced into the situation, because the sponsors were dropping like flies, and didn't want to be involved in it anymore. Like like like Steve, said it was not a stream of consciousness he did not all of a sudden have had a change of his mind, and listen to a players or feedback or a Roger Goodell or any executives. It was about the economics, the sponsors and some of the investors who then who wanted out I don't even know that a majority of the fans of that team are supportive of this change. I mean I have no idea. Idea if it's majority I mean you'll see some commentaries from the fans, and and some just don't care like some. Don't get it some. See nothing wrong with it like this is our heritage. It's always been called that way on. This is our history and I think there are some that do I think there are a lot that do, but I mean I have no idea of course. What what the data shows right I wonder if I wonder if Dan, Snyder or any team did like internal polling, and if they did padres with Brown. Yeah, we're for all these years sort of anecdotal evidence which existed mostly social media and from a hand. Full of people who had microphones or people that would right columns and people would would suggest hey, listen, this is what you're you know this is. This is part of your identity and previous employees, the team who'd research, but I do wonder if Dan Snyder had been presented evidence or data from his own team, said listen seventy percent. Want you to change the name I just wonder if he would've sucked to his guns, no matter what. Until the economics became involved like I. IT mattered, Anyone said. Until, he got the financial pressure. Absolutely not absolutely not I mean it wasn't that long ago, and it's not like he's listen, and it's not like he's going to come out and just start telling everybody. Hey, guess what. I've seen the life. Wow, this the last couple of months and based on what happened in Minneapolis. Profound impact on me. Listen to my player. Players and I've talked and I've just had my goodness. I just can't believe that I actually took this like I've said before my own situation. I remember thinking oh well. How can we change the name of our our mascot? And we went to the final four twice with that, and then you SORTA okay. Let's nickname whatever you move on and. You feel better for it once you get a little bit of clarity instead of just being stubborn and just being dug in on this -sarily on some sort of silly thing. And this is this is. This is a dumb thing to get hung up on sure, but it's very clear to anybody who, either is where we are or closer to the situation. That gets not what the owner wants to do. You know what I mean is that the owner wants to do with what the owner has to do?.

Washington's NFL Team to Change Name After 87 Years

"Colorado's Morning news. Well, they don't know what their new name will be yet, but the NFL team in Washington no longer known as the red skins, the team is officially retiring the nick name and logo After major public pressure from fans and sponsors, Team owner Dan Schneider says the replacement will be announced in the coming weeks. So what do Native Americans think about the change? Let's get into that with Native Ways. Federation executive Director Carly Bad Heart Bull Goodman Me and Carly and thanks for joining us. Good morning. Thank you for having me. We should mention your group is focused on supporting Native American activism and education. So were you folks pushing for this name change? Absolutely are the members in our organization have been part of the movement for the native for this for this change in our native communities have have many folks and Leadership positions many native youth and particular native women across the country for decades now, Carly I'm curious, because I I think that you tell me it's more important what you think that it's the Redskins as a descriptive if they were the Washington If you want to, say native Americans, or even the Washington Indians, which we can talk more about that that would be a want to say, less offensive. It's the descriptive. It's like a majority visit. Not now, That's the biggest thing. It's not so much if they're honoring them. It's the fact that no, you don't use that term. The issue is that our people have been saying for again for decades that the name doesn't on arrest that term. Andi, I would add that There are other teams. There are other names, including some of the names that you lifted that were also were also not in favor of the issue is when you have a community that has been saying for for generations for decades that we are not honored by the use of these names that you need to listen. You need to listen when our community is saying that this is not representative of who we are. When you come from a community that is Is eatin a history of lack of representation of misrepresentation. It is really important to listen to us and to you hear us when we say that it's important for us, and it's important for our kids that Any representation that is out there in the media is adequate, not only adequate, but is also a celebrating who we are not Ah, stereo type, not You know, I'm misrepresentation or, you know, not making fun of who we are. Let's go through some of those names. The Atlanta Braves say they're not going to change their team moniker. Chicago Blackhawks. Kansas City Chiefs Cleveland Indians should they all change. You know? Yes. Honestly, I mean, I mean that, as far as I know, you know the Redskin Sorry. I hate even using that term. I shouldn't use that term. I should not even be saying that name. They haven't gone public with any information on what their new name with their new local will be accepted, say that they hope to honor native people and the military and so it's really important that we're having this further conversation. Because again, even though the Washington team is talking about changing the name, there's so much work yet to be done both with their name and with these other teams that you that you mentioned the remains concerning these communities about about what this means about the The history of Blanding in a way that that is said to honor native people. Even after community members leaders Jaime Time again have said that these names do not honor us. So we're hopeful that that you know a new name. A new logo with the national team will not continue this native imagery or thing or themes. We're hopeful that the team as well as these other teams will listen to native communities come back and talk to us. We have been saying for years on DH will come up with new branding altogether. You know, it's time to do the right thing. Otherwise, at some point, honestly, they're gonna have to do it all over again. That the you know, make the effort now and any abuse and this perpetuation He's racist stereotypes. Once it for all against

"The Sports Business Journal. And writes for sports business. The he's he was the first one. On the now's everyone else picked it up after that so. Shout the Ben Fisher. but yeah This is not something that wasn't expected. As the article goes on to say, it's why the expected that Washington would change its team name. One source said Saturday night. That announcement of a new name would come soon. As business I reported and and there's no name. On the I guess there's no name to be. Determined or to be. To be put out there as of Monday morning, Lisa at this moment will see if anything changes between now, or you has hearing this on Monday so Move. We'll see if anything by the time you hear. This official names come out. doesn't seem like there will be As we talked about as was mentioned a little bit. discuss through the different episodes of from last week. Adam schefter reported that Washington franchise would not use any native American imagery awards logo of Native American chief. Of An American Indian chief has been designed by. Was Designed by native, American nineteen seventy-one, and another source told ESPN that the plan as of now thirteen franchises, use of Burgundy and gold colors co drama. Vera, said that team wanted to include the military in its new name as well. Read the article goes on the same things. I talked about A. a bunch of people wanted to pull out of like one money out of the franchise, not support the franchise in different ways because it seems that's kind of. Iraq in in the country now is that if If. You don't support something. Or you're trying out something or trying to. Force something to change the most effective way to do that is two pockets as I, said originally with this thing on Dan Snyder wasn't going to change a mess. His money was hurt and now the money started getting her in the Nasi Fedex. Ex wanted to pull out and everybody. minority-owned from the southern states like all that stuff happening boom. Bam now over some the getting change only took however long. And like I said it's only like. pockets of episodes ago Those two thousand thirteen. We said that Never GonNa, change related matter what happened? And, but now here we are twenty twenty. And nothing changed. The time changes the climate changes, society changes, and they're less willing to look past certain things now, and that's kind of. Where we are at at this point is cautioned. Not to go too far that will stick to the sports, but yeah discount is where we are right now Again, the people are realizing although the the the people are realizing the power that they think they at least have ozzy again the ones with the actual power can influence the change like lawmakers. That's wealthy people congressman. Presidents in things governors people on those levels are really the ones with the power because they can. or owner is commissioners. Things like that they can they control everything in terms of they control like the way different leaves maneuver way different states maneuvering thing out, so you're seeing that as we go throughout the country with the. Wrong response every every state every. Every city depending on within the same state is. Reacting differently in that's. due to the leadership that they have and. while. That is true that the leaders do have a lot of people have the power. They put them in that position, so the people decide. They don't like something that they don't want something. They can use that power to force a change that they want to see. Then again, people have talked about this So this is not necessarily that same situation because they've been talking about for years, and it wasn't until the powerful people like the Fedex is the Nikes. The Pepsi's the NFL that they were the ones on Snyder back about it. Changed, but we now. And again, a lot of it is due to the outrage of the people in the country about a multitude of things, so like I said the people did help, but again being able to identify in the pockets, and that's where the. High level people come in. that's though that's really where. it was able to make the change. Because again is something that I didn't think I would see anytime soon again figures. We're going to happen at some point. They've been talking about this for years. and it should have been changed years ago again once, anybody I don't know say anybody could not just one person thing, but once a group of people. Determined that they don't like no matter how big or small it is just like there's no. Like again. There's no reason to keep the name honesty. Because as we discussed on our earlier or as on earlier episode, The people have the memories tied to the players, and what they did not necessarily like. If you changed, the name was not the history of the. Of the franchise goes away. The franchise exists. Just again has a different name. It's not it's not that serious you like they're moving. I was all like Houston was became Tennessee Titans. what was it? The colts originally moved to Cleveland. The Baltimore. Colts raiders moved to Cleveland, I think. saw the. I saw the Browns or No you know what I mean like people, appreciable cores Baltimore Baltimore, colts excuse me. but yeah so I can send people move round like that's a little different. This is just stem changing. This would be like if the revival Minneapolis they changed, from. The from went from Minneapolis a Lakers and everything like it's. Again is not like the Minneapolis. Part of their French has is gone just that again. There's something different. People still are not not many people now remember that, but if you were around during that time, remember then you're displeased at the team mood, but again the same point you have the memories tied to the players, not necessarily the name of the franchise, just because the Washington what he was going to change. The name does not mean everything that happened. Before that gets erased, so..

Washington Redskins shedding name after 87 years

"Is changing its name. In a statement today, the Redskins confirmed they're retiring that name and their logo NPR sports correspondent Tom Goldman is following this story time. Good morning. Morning, Steve. I've paid attention to the city where I lives football team for some years and I remembered a quote went looked it up and it was accurate in 2013. Dan Snyder, the owner, said quote We will never change the name of the team. So what changed? Yeah, And he also said all caps. You can write that in all caps. So Steve in all caps were were saying today that Washington Redskins are retiring that name. As you said a very brief statement. The team released the name The logo are will be gone. So after 87 years of having this name and decades of protest against it, it is gone. Don't know the new name. We don't know yet, You know in this brief statement, It also said that Washington owner Dan Snyder and head coach Ron Rivera are working closely to develop a new name and design an approach that will enhance the standing of our proud tradition rich franchise and inspire our sponsors, fans and community for the next 100 years. The delay right now reportedly is having to work out trademark issues. Some of the most popular names, though, that have been mentioned the red wolves, the Warriors, the red tails in honor of the Tuskegee Airman, the African American fighter squadron that flew in World War two. Their planes had crimson tails, so those could be possibilities. Well, let's remember what the argument was about here. For many, many years, the team had been accused of having a racist name and a racist logo. They had resisted and said they were honoring Native Americans and In various ways and clear the clearly There was a lot of money at stake on that would be one reason that Dan Snyder had said We're not going anywhere with this name. What made this moment? Different? Well, as you well know, there have been, you know, as you say, protests reaching back to the 19 seventies, but obviously the pressure really mounted since the police killing of George Floyd in late May. You know, we have seen a number of symbols, flags and statues change and come down and the Washington team wasn't immune to that pressure, but But, you know, I hate to be cynical here, Steve. But what really got them thinking hard was when sponsors made it clear there needed to be a change FedEx whose name is on the stadium. In Maryland, Pepsi, Nike to name a few All said they wanted changed another important factor The team has wanted to relocate to Washington, D. C. It's original home. FedEx Field is in Maryland. The team practices in Virginia, DC politicians say we'd love to have you back, but you've got to change the name of your team. So that that factored in as well. Our other teams facing similar pressure. Yes, they are, whether they will respond the same way. We don't know. The Cleveland Indians of Major League Baseball report earlier discussing a change the Atlanta Braves of Majorly of Major League Baseball say they won't change their name, but reportedly, they're mulling whether or not to prohibit the Tomahawk chop. The chant and the chopping motion that fans used during games. You know, lots of college teams over the years of jettison controversial names with not a lot of pushback. There will be a long time. Washington fans upset about this because it is changing a long held tradition, but the team will go forward. Tom. Thanks very much.

Early Bowl Games, CFB Playoff & a Conversation with Jim Delany

"Joe's I'm Stewart Mandel L.. Joined by Bruce Feldman for our Christmas week episode Bruce a really special guest Pleased to have the outgoing big ten commissioner Jim Delaney on this show here a little bit. He is down to his last ten days or so on the job. But I How is your house your viewing experience first weekend of Bowl Games? It was good I got to see most of the Games. It was one thing I'll say is it was three. NFL Games. That ran on Saturday in those games. Were more competitive Than some of the bowl games I gotTA admit You know hats off to Fau. They had a coaching change and even without the coaching change. I think a lot of people would have thought okay. You have a bigger group of five really good team. SMU AGAINST A smaller group of five and it turned out to be a blow out but not the way. Yeah probably a lot of us would have expected so hats off to the owls. I thought that was a real head-turner The other one that jumped out at me. I think is Kent State it considering how bad that program was Not long ago I mean Sean. Lewis has stepped up there and really made a a huge impact. They are a fun team to watch they at their first bowl win in school history On the first first day of the bowl games it was one of those reminders of what I think because they had to really scrap just to get to be bowl eligible. I think that they are a great example of Y. No there aren't too many bowls it's five hundred team that got into a bowl game. They were impressive how they handled it. And it means a ton to that program Graham and I think Those players deserve the spotlight. Yeah I got that one wrong. I picked Utah State to win by like thirty. Whoops that's bowl season for ya the SMU ONE SMU Fau? Definitely surprise me as well. I think that that. SMU's one of those teams that got a lot the hype because they were doing things they hadn't done a long time and then it just kind of unraveled You know their their signature win was TCU and then TCU doesn't end up making a ballgame So hey that crazy shootout with memphis though You know it's interesting. There was a time when everybody was lobbying for their respective team. Conference for the Group of five New Year six bowl and Michael Rescue was furious that at one point. SMU is ranked behind Appalachian State. Obviously Mountain West. People were furious. That Boise State didn't get more credit Compared to the AC and then both SMU eastbound Boise State Mountain West Champ gets blown out by Washington honestly a Washington team. That wasn't all that great this year but I felt like nick and kind of I think you had the same hunches. Well and Chris Petersen's last game that they would. They would come to play and they did. That was a Thorough domination and now we all wait to see what Jacobson do. Yeah look I mean this is now Jimmy Lakes program. There's already been a little staff shakeup. Bush Hamden the offense coordinator. WHO's there for two seasons? He is already out as well as One other offense of assistant so one thing to keep an eye on and I'm GonNa have a story on this on the athletic Later this week is there's a lot of sizeable offensive coordinator vacancies out there. So Bunch in the PAC twelve oregon is looking for an offense coordinator as his Washington. As is cal- I think there's going to be quite a few more coming There's you know look. There could be a few big ones in the south as well as the ones that already have had coaching changes. This is where they're looking for guys so it's an interesting subplot to keep an eye on over the next couple of weeks Again as we mentioned a few weeks back You you know. We both have a lot of respect for Chris. Peterson thought it was cool. To see the way he went out We'll see if he ever comes back to coaching or what he does next. He's somebody I would. I'd love to have on the podcast at some point down the road Just because I always thought he was one of the more interesting people in coaching even though sometimes he didn't always WanNa show oh you his hand publicly so hats off to him stew before we get to Jim Delany though This is probably our only chance to restore at least on the audible to talk about the semi final games. And you'd think it feels like they're way off in the distance but as we're taping this They're less than a week away. feels like the right up on us. Does I mean to me. The teams arrived working on this part on Sunday night and the teams arrived. I think a couple of them at least arrived in Phoenix already. It's nuts it's It's playoff semi final week already. So how do you break this down. I know you didn't want to tip your hand on what was going on especially in Europe ballgame. You're going to be covering the one in Phoenix covering the one Atlanta for the athletic. So Oh

"Of your favorite team. So if you're a cowboy fan, and you see Dacca's sixteen to twenty one now he doesn't thrown an interception and he hasn't thrown a touchdown. So you're like, oh, okay. Hey, Dax Ballin in zeke's got a touchdown. Everything's good. But watching the game is everything. Good for the Cowboys. Yeah. And it it doesn't feel good in the sense of as you watch just opportunities missed after after after opportunity after opportunity missed for this cowboy see, but such is the life for Cowboys fan. I think they're always just right on the doorstep of being good. But then they wind up being mediocre. They've been. The picture of mediocrity for the last decade and James couple of decades, frankly, and that's where they find themselves today. Right. Like in a battle with with the Washington team that has doesn't have a starting quarterback and has shown on an inability really in the back into cover, folks. Deep like, I don't understand how you're not taking advantage of this situation. If you're Dallas in them. But here we are because of the mistakes made to this point while and you talked about the Redskins not having a quarterback Colt McCoy, I think has actually been okay, he's only seven to fourteen one hundred sixteen yards a pick and a touchdown. But I think he's giving them an explosive component to their offense that touchdown pass went to Vernon Davis for fifty three yards. It was a beautiful throw in. If I can if I can logically say this is a football fan. It doesn't compute. You're starting quarterback in Alex Smith has that gruesome leg injury, and they're okay without him. I think Colt McCoy so far today is look pretty good. They are because Colt is willing to take those downfield shots. He's an aggressive sort of playmaker. He's willing to put him. Himself out there, regardless of the states, whereas Alice continues to keep his up because you so willing to take exactly what the defense gives them. Not try to throw him his receivers open too much to the point where he gets the ball turned over. So you're looking at different styles of player that quarterback position though, both of them know that offense of scheme. Really, well, obviously cold just takes a sort of different oppose. It opens up the playbook a little bit more allows you to get the ball to excellent athletes like Vernon Davis right off the gate.
