Should the Washington Redskins change their name? The answer is yes. And now, while the Redskins are mired in a seemingly perpetual slump is the perfect time to do it.
I don’t understand why American Football is called “Football.” Football literally means foot and ball – which would imply that the players kick a ball with their feet up and down a field….very much like in European and Latin American futbol. In American Football the players run with the ball in their hand – which is absolutely forbidden in futbol. In American Football, there is only one kicker and he maybe kicks the ball once per game. American Football should be called “tackle ball” or “American Rugby” rather than bastardizing the original game by calling it “soccer.” What is soccer?
