Washington, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – Just days after the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office cancelled six of its trademarks, the Washington Redskins announced today it was dropping its offensive team name in favor of a more politically -correct and patriotic brand.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office canceled the trademarks belonging to the football team on Wednesday, saying they are offensive to Native Americans.
Today’s announcement ends the emotional debate that has long plagued the team on and off the playing field.
In a hastily-called press conference, Washington Redskins owner Daniel Marc Snyder announced that effective immediately, his team will be known as the Red, White and Blue Eagles. “I don’t think there could be any other name more patriotic and politically- correct than this, ” he said, adding, “It’s time to end all debate. Let’s play ball!”
