Chris ‘Mad Dog’ Russo became the latest in a suddenly growing group of media members to publicly support the Redskins’ team name, in a debate with Peter King on Sirius XM on Tuesday.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told 106.7 The Fan’s Lavar and Dukes that the NFL needs to continue to listen to different points of view regarding the ‘Redskins’ nickname “if we are offending one person,” while emphasizing the importance of honoring tradition as well.
Peter King recently contradicted one of his writers saying the TheMMQB.com would no longer be using the name ‘Redskins’ in print, but then he wrote 2,746 words about Redskins’ offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, without ever mentioning ‘Redskins’ once.
Jim Rome of CBS Sports had some words for RGIII following his latest “Operation Patience” tweet. He called out Griffin for liking the “attention and the hero worship that he gets from coming back” from his knee injury, which Rome says he “won’t shut up about.”
Peter King’s MMQB.com website will no longer use the nickname ‘Redskins’ in writing on its website, MMQB columnist Robert Klemko tells Chris Moore of CBS Sports Radio’s “Mojo with Chris Moore and Brian Jones.”
Maybe it was the rain, or maybe it was just the Miami Marlins, but some weird stuff happened in the Nats 4-3 win last night, and Miami’s Logan Morrison found himself at the receiving end of a lot of ridicule. Watch the video evidence here.
Shannon Sharpe, a Hall of Fame tight end and current NFL analyst for CBS, told 106.7 The Fan’s Chris Lingebach that Robert Griffin III should never feel secure as the starting quarterback of the Washington Redskins.
Recently retired QB Donovan McNabb returned fire on RGIII, who recently declined his invitation to sit down and talk, by saying the current Redskins’ quarterback is “getting brainwashed” in Washington.
Darrell Green was quoted in a recent interview as saying the Redskins name “deserves and warrants a conversation,” but clarified to 106.7 The Fan on Wednesday, that’s all he meant. He doesn’t actually want the name changed.
Davey Johnson gave a heartfelt weekly address to the Junkies on 106.7 The Fan Wednesday, acknowledging he fought with Mike Rizzo over Rick Eckstein’s firing, and while he’s trying to remain optimistic about the season, there was on overriding sense of defeat in his words.
