The prickly issue of the Washington Redskins' insulting nickname would be much worse if team owner Daniel Snyder didn't justify it in such a sensitive and understanding way.
"We'll never change the name," Snyder told USA Today after the issue re-surfaced recently. "It's that simple. Never. You can put that in capital letters."
Thank you, Mr. Sensitive. There are some other words I'd like to put in caps, but I won't.
Remember, this is the same guy who sued season ticket holders who couldn't pay up when the recession hit, even though he said there were 200,000 on the waiting list. The same billionaire who changes coaches like power ties.
Anyway, it's ironic that the nickname was supposedly meant to "honor" head coach William Henry "Lone Star" Dietz, who probably wasn't even a Native American.
I won't beat this dead horse into submission again.
