    ^ I still hate the Yankees, Montreal in hockey and the Lakers in basketball. Just feels appropriate, though the disdain has probably subsided a bit since Boston has won championships in these sports. I actively rooted against the Heat from the time of "The Decision" to when LeBron decided to move back to Cleveland. Speaking on moral victories, I have fond memories of watching Bledsoe lead the Pats to an impressive comeback against the Vikings in 1994 during the Parcells era.

    I'll tell you what's annoying, Pats fans acting like their team is still elite even though they've lost 2 Superbowl's in the past five years :)

    who's acting like the pats are elite? I haven't. I don't get it. They're relevant because they've made some pretty deep playoff runs coupled with stellar average regular seasons (albeit always inflated because of weak divisions) but if anything all my fellow pats fans knew we didn't really have a chance against the ravens or denver in the playoffs recently.

    Shameless 49ers fan who lives a stone's throw from Candlestick. We are the best team! The refs are awful!

    Meh, I just don't like the name. If government wants to revoke the name, more power to them :)

    The Redskins patent protection has already been pulled so that sort of counts as revoking the name.

    What are you smoking? The government makes all sorts of decisions every day. This was just one of them.

    You sound a little butt hurt. Will you be all right?

    Not a Redskins fan so really don't care too much from that perspective. Just seems like a very silly thing for the government to waste its time on. Your opinion may differ and that's fine.

    Deciding what can and can't be said on the air is a huge part of what the FCC does.

    ^ Yeah. As long as the Redskins are the official name of the team, however, it seems really stupid to be deciding whether it can be used on air.
