Draft 2
The Redskins can play a major role in helping with a major epidemic in our youth day; Obesity. Children today are revolved around video games, mindless hours watching television and endless hours on the computer. Gone are the days where you had to look out for kids playing on the streets while driving and even avoiding cyclists. A dangerously low inactive lifestyle is sweeping the nation's children, and the Redskins can help. A new proposed plan will allow children to not only engage in a more physically active lifestyle, but they will enjoy it.
Each summer, the Redskins will hold a junior training camp which will allow children in schools from Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia to train with the actual team. They will have to perform real NFL style drills and plays led by the same coaches and players on the Redskins team staff. It will be divided by age class, with the older kids receiving more rigorous activities and vice versa. Since the Redskins are such a cherished organization, and athletes are treated as celebrities, the children would be more than willing to participate in this event.
The junior training camp will of couse have a limit to the amount of kids allowed, in order to keep it low cost. It will be part of an incentive program in correlation to the childrens physical education class at school. The top scorers from schools around the community will be allowed to participate in the program. This will provide a massive motivational tool for kids in their P.E classes.
There is great benefit to both parties with this plan. It will take place after school has ended, so it does not interfere with the childrens school work. Also…...

...the use of salary caps. While the enacted cap does stop wealthy owners from “buying” their way to championships, it does not guarantee that all teams will have a fair chance at taking it for themselves. In 2012, the NFL made the decision to reduce the cap for the Cowboys and the Redskins and to reallocate the money throughout the other teams. The reasoning for this decision was “to remedy these effects and preserve competitive balance throughout the league, the parties to the CBA agreed to adjustments to team salary for the 2012 and 2013 seasons.” (FLORIO) In light of these events, the question that remains is “where is the ethicality in these actions?” A salary cap is set up to create a more “ethical, just” environment for the players of the given league. The intent by the league officials is to create a level of competitive balance that will equalize a lopsided league. In 2010, there was an expiring collective bargaining agreement and as a result there was no salary cap. (PETCHESKY) Management at the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys took advantage of this loophole and frontloaded their player contracts. It was known that all of the teams were participating in these actions but the Redskins and the Cowboys took it to the extreme. Dan Snyder and Jerry Jones, the two owners, were warned multiple times of what would happen but they chose to ignore the warnings. The warnings were ignored because in essence, they were not doing anything illegal. Unethical…yes.......

Cowboys History

...winning their first two games both against division rivals. The good start would not last as the Cowboys inconsistent play reared its ugly head again during five consecutive losses. However, the team would rebound to end the season on a strong note winning five of their last seven games to finish with a 7-7 record. 1966: President and General Manager Tex Schramm is heavily involved in the negotiations as the AFL and NFL agree to a merger setting up a season ending Championship Game. The Cowboys looked like a candidate for that game from the start of the season as they won their first four games in blowout fashion. After a rough four game stretch in which the team went 1-2-1, the Cowboys pulled out a one point victory in Washington over the Redskins to get back on track. A week later the Cowboys set a record by sacking Steelers Quarterbacks 12 times in Pittsburgh to improve to 6-2-1. Four days later a tradition would be born as the Cowboys hosted the Cleveland Browns in the first Thanksgiving game in Dallas. The game would end up being a key game as a 26-14 win put the Cowboys in the driver's seat for the Eastern Division Championship, as they went on to claim their first title with a solid 10-3-1 record. In the NFL Championship Game the Cowboys hosted the Green Bay Packers at the Cotton Bowl in front of 75,504 fans. The Packers would prove to be the better team that day, but the Cowboys did not go down without a fight, as they gave the Packers all they could handle before......

Elitism and Institutional Power

... The basis for Katherine Graham’s power was being the CEO of the Washington Post, which some considered the most powerful information sources in the United States. “Kay Graham manages to overcome many of her life's obstacles -- and privileges -- to become a powerful and effective leader. She doesn't always make sound choices; she clings to her corrosive and philandering husband through thick and thin, and she overturns her Republican father's desire to create an unbiased-newspaper by making The Post a mouthpiece for the Democrats. But it is her mistakes that make Graham most interesting and accessible to readers.” ( Serenaaah "serenaaah") The Washington Post can print a story on the Washington Redskins playing the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon and the Redskins lose the game to Dallas. The attitude in the Washington Metropolitan area is a feeling disappointment which is reflected by a great deal of fans. The fans that are frustrated by the loss to the Dallas Cowboys will seek out a motorist and take their frustrations out on the individual in the form of road rage. The Washington Post can have a story in the paper which shares information on a free concert in the city, and a great deal of Washington residents will ascend to the location to be a part of the event advertised in the newspaper. The Strategies which Katherine used to maintain the status and influence were to buy Newsweek magazine and five television networks and several pulp and paper......

Ethics

...Exercise 1, RGS6036.E1 1. I would define ethics as a set of concepts and principles that guide us in determining what is right or wrong. Ethics consists of standards that have been developed to direct us in what we ought to do, in terms of rights, obligations, fairness, and benefits to society. Individuals must also continuously study their own moral beliefs and conduct to ensure we live up to these ethical standards. 2. Should Daniel Snyder (NFL team owner) be forced to change the name of the Washington Redskins? This is an ethical question that is being discussed currently in the news. The main concern is that the nickname “Redskins” is disparaging of Native Americans. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office canceled six federal trademark registrations for the Washington Redskins name on Wednesday, June 18. The team has been called the Redskins since 1933 and a name change along with the trademark cancelations could cost owner Daniel Snyder millions of dollars. 3. The study of ethics is necessary for graduate students because ethics plays a critical role in well-rounded decision making. Most graduate students will be in a position to make many important decisions professionally and personally. A good background in ethics will help serve as a guide in making sure the right decision is made not only morally but also in terms of rights, obligations and fairness to all involved. The desired outcome of the student may not always be the most ethical of choices......

Indian and the Dam

...pivotal role in recreational activities like boating, fishing, swimming and water skiing. These activities are also cultural in nature. This could affect seasonal economic factors like tourism and all the local businesses that are support by it. The non-Indian population affected by these changes may fight back by petitioning their congressmen, making people aware of their struggle. But on the flip side if you did nothing American Indians would fight it legally and would take their story to the press. This struggle could go on for years keeping a community divided. One similar struggle that has been going on for decades and is starting to regain momentum is over the name of the NFL football franchise in Washington D.C. the Redskins. The fight is between Redskin ownership and Oneida Indian Nation. When polled most people including most American Indians didn’t find the name offensive (CNN, 2013). But the issue continues to receive a lot of press coverage. The debate over what to do with the burial ground is complicated issue, that can divide a community,because economic hardship, and cause pain to those offended. The responsibility falls on both sides to find a plan that works. Coming up with a plan that works for everybody will not be easy. No one will be completely satisfied but that would be an unrealistic goal. There are only a few options that are practical. The most practical would be to relocate the remains of the burial site to a suitable location. This option......

Organ Bans Native American Mascots

...among followers, there is also a dark side to their uses” (p. 48). This is a racial inequality that materializes in our educational system today, therefore, we need to start focusing on the impact that this have on the kids. Professional sport teams were founded in a period when prejudice and racism was accepted. Back in the 1800’s, tribal names and symbols were used repeatedly to characterize them. Today our professional teams use hurtful Indian brand names and logos, rather than respecting Native American people. Some names like the Braves are hard to define as defensive. But the Braves and the Redskins (the team with the most insulting name) were both originally owned by a well known racist; George Preston Marshall. The Redskins name was opted in 1932 at the same time as the federal Civilization Regulations were still in place. According to J. Gordon Hylton (2010) “the term Redskin was used regularly to refer to Native Americans and not in ways that were flattering” (p.885). Native American Indians found this expression to be extremely cruel as well as demeaning. Basically, this is the equivalent to calling African American people the “N” word. While the expression has appreciatively fallen out of the general use the association remains the same. Not to mention that this billion dollar industry doesn’t even compensate these people for the use of their cultures or names. Professional sport teams, with their mascots and logos are playing in a racist game. The use of Native......

Washington Redskins Name Change

...Zachary Hagan-Sanchez Should the Washington Redskins Change their name? No, the Washington Redskins should not change their name. They have had the name since the franchise was born in 1937, which is 80 years ago. If people want to change the Washington Redskins name and mascot then there are going to be lots of other teams in professional sports as well as in colleges and high schools that are going to have to change their names too. The Oneida Indian Nation has started a campaign for the NFL to stop using a racial slur as the name of Washington’s football team; they also want the mascot changed to something that is not offensive to Native Americans. They are not wrong about the meaning of the word Redskin, if you look it up in the dictionary it is defined as “Used as a disparaging term for Native American.” The name was not picked 80 years ago to be offensive and a slur and for many decades no one had a problem with it until now. Whether or not the name gets changed there are still going to be people on both sides of the fence that are either going to be happy or upset. I personally think they should just leave it alone and move on. There is always going to some kind of problem whether it is racial or something different, what people need to remember is that we are all human regardless of the color of our skin or the name of a team or what a mascot looks like....

Native American Names

...American names is something that I have discussed numerous times in the past. I am a Washington Redskins fan as well as a Florida State Seminoles fan. I do believe that neither team nor the other teams, car companies or the military feel that the use of Native American names is derogatory or racist in any way. I agree with their use and although some might feel I am unsympathetic, I believe that the use of these names is meant to be more honorary then racist. Although dictionaries state the definition of the word redskin is a racial descriptor of negative intent, the Oxford Dictionary states the following and many other sources agree that it was not originally a negative meaning: “Redskin is first recorded in the late 17th century and was applied to the Algonquian peoples generally but specifically to the Delaware (who lived in what is now southern New York State and New York City, New Jersey, and eastern Pennsylvania). Redskin referred not to the natural skin color of the Delaware, but to their use of vermilion face paint and body paint. In time, however, through a process that in linguistics is called pejoration, by which a neutral term acquires an unfavorable connotation or denotation, redskin lost its neutral, accurate descriptive sense and became a term of disparagement.” This topic is in the news recently as some are currently fighting to have the courts make the Washington Redskins change their name. At this point, many people: 79% according to a recent AP poll......

Suey Park's Outrage: Comparing Stephen Colbert's Superiority to Her Own

...Colbert’s audience watches his show for witty jokes, which result in laughter, Park took the joke out of context. Park thought Colbert was holding himself to a higher position compared to Asian Americans when it was a play on the Washington Redskins name and in his attempt satirise the organisation’s owner’s attempt to calm the backlash of the team’s name. In taking to social media, Twitter specifically, and initiating the “#CancelColbert” hashtag, Park was channelling her right of free speech through hashtag activism. However, in doing this she was trying to show her sense of superiority theory, even though it was not in the context of humour, it was her chance to upstage Colbert. Superiority theory in humour can help illuminate instances of humour in media and bring serious social matters like the Redskins’ outrageously racist name to the forefront, people like Park, taking the joke out of context and seeing it as an attack on another race take way from the initial issue. Park’s assumption that Colbert assumes he is better than Asian Americans is as equally as silly as the Redskins’ name. In Depp’s remark he is purporting this and calling out Park for her outrage by comparing her argument to that of Dan Snyder, the owner of the Washington Redskins, and not wanting to change the team’s racist name to something more politically correct.

Native Americans, Struggles, Mascots, Controversy

...is derogatory or discriminatory against any race, ethnicity, nationality, or tribal group. These include Redskins, Indians, Braves, Chiefs, Apaches, Comanches, and any other American Indian tribal name;” (Slagle 2002:33). In the state of California there are approximately 180 schools that would have to change their names and mascots if this bill passed. The bill focused on a handful of specific names that were potentially offensive. Ultimately the bill did not pass, it was defeated by the state assembly because it did not get the votes it needed. “In some cases this pressure has led to teams changing their names. Notable examples of successful activism in the Unites States have been the Los Angeles Unified School District banning the use of Native American team logos and names in their schools, and Springfield College’s decision to change their sport team names from the ‘Chiefs’ and the ‘Maroons’ to the ‘Pride’” (Robidoux 2006:201,202). Stanford was amongst the first schools to change their Indian mascot because of objections from Native American students. This has cause efforts for change in other California schools such as San Francisco, Fremont, and Galt High School. “With this said, however, many of the highest profile offenders – the Braves, the Indians, the Redskins, the Blackhawks, and the Seminoles – remain” (Robidoux 2006:202). For instance the Washington Redskins have had a lot of controversy surrounding their name. Since the 20th century activists have rallied for......

Native American Mascots: Negative Views Towards Indians

...1800s, Native American tribal names and symbols were commonly used to represent them. Over the years, this pattern has given us the Kansas City Chiefs, Chicago Blackhawks, Cleveland Indians, Florida State Seminoles, Atlanta Braves, and Washington Redskins (to name a few). During the 1960s, the National Congress of American Indians created a campaign to eliminate negative stereotyping of Native American people in the media. They focused mainly on cartoons and movies; however their protests of sports organizations garnered the most attention. The National Congress of American Indians has long been opposed to mascots that portray Native Americans in a negative light. They feel that teams with mascots such as the Braves and the Redskins perpetuate negative stereotypes of Native American people, and demean their native traditions and rituals. In particular, the term “Redskin” tends to generate a great deal of controversy. "Redskins" is, outside of sports, “a racial moniker reserved for those of Native American descent. While the term has thankfully fallen out of common use, the connotation remains (Dewitt 2).” In fact, several people have found the name insensitive enough to file lawsuits, the aim of which would be to force the Redskins to change their famous name. However, supporters of Native American mascots believe that Native American mascots pay respect to these people and promote a better understanding of their cultures. This interpretation and use of Native American......
