I'll just make a case for fun
Th Redskins team name is offensive and shouldn't stay that way.
And that's my case
spacetime

Con

And my case is that the potential to offend doesn't necessarily translate into an obligation to change, especially considering that the team's use of the term "redskin" carries no offensive intent.

Vote Con.

7 points to Con. Reasons for voting decision: Mc9, not cool dude

[*Reason for non-removal*] The debate was conceded, and hence any vote that acknowledges that concession in its allocation of points is not moderated.

It's okay I can see why your mad but anyway you win (I actually would love to do that death penalty debate sometime).

Seriously, man. You were active on the site all day yesterday...
Anyways, there's no way I'm going to be able to finish this debate by Thursday now that you've blown off 3 whole days. Let's have it deleted, and ask Thett3 where to go from here.

Lifelong Washington Redskins fan here
This debate about my team's name is incredibly ignorant when time and time again, Natives have stated they are NOT OFFENDED by the name. The Redskins also became the Redskins with the consent of Native leaders, and a Native man designed the team logo.

Lol that would be a horrible decision on his part. I feel bad for mc9, but a lost debate won't kill you.
