The Supreme Court boosted the team's controversial name by striking down a law banning "disparaging" trademarks.

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush has weighed in on the controversial name of the Washington Redskins. In an interview airing tomorrow for the new SiriusXM program The Arena, one could easily pick apart nearly everything Jeb said.
"This movement has been coming for a long time," Jaramillo, a UCC national officer, told The Huffington Post. In 2013, Washington
Robert Griffin may still have a lot of football left in him, but perhaps we should be asking what type of football that is.

"We'll be looking at that petition, we will be dealing with that issue on the merits and we'll be responding accordingly
