Peter King, who made the editorial decision last fall to cease use of the name ‘Redskins’ on his Sports Illustrated website, says the issue is not going to go away: “There’s gonna be a story in the media once a month, forever.”
Peter King of Sports Illustrated thinks it’s absurd of the Redskins to think they’ll get a 2nd-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft in exchange for Kirk Cousins … but he does think they can get a 1st-round pick in 2015’s draft for him.
Peter King explains the response to his recent decision to no longer use the nickname ‘Redskins’ on his website as “probably predictable.” While he maintains it was a personal choice, he clarified his stance “has nothing to do with calling anyone racist.”
Peter King has confirmed he will not use the Redskins name on his website, TheMMQB.com, moving forward, addressing reports that surfaced last week suggesting as much.
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.

Congress refused to vote for relief for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The first Republican President famously said “a house divided against itself cannot stand.” The same holds true for the Republican Party today.
