@DrewMTips Guess Simms is auditioning for the insufferable Bob Costas role for CBS.

Some Washington Redskins fans hung a banner to protest Phil Simms refusal to say the team’s name. Fans are probably more annoyed by Simms’ bandwagon jumping than by his sanctimony.

@KristenBerset @thomloverro @wusa9 that's frickin ridiculous NFL told them to take it down. Tell them to get their own house in order.

D.C. area residents STRONGLY agree, members of the sports media SHOULD use the Redskins name when covering the team. pic.twitter.com/vdWoPenBW0

Do people in the D.C. area find the word 'Redskins' offensive? Local ethnic groups had this to say in our survey… pic.twitter.com/GIYX40xAMH

It's within the margin among white people @SwanniOnTV @wusa9 so if you take the racist bumpkins out, it's 48-15. Game over.

@bobbyo1967 @wusa9 not arguing public sentiment but study question was skewed

We don't disagree there @SwanniOnTV @wusa9 I was playing the old political game of "even though it's a crooked setup, i can declare victory"

How is Phil Simms coping with seeing the word "Redskins" in the end zone? He should do all a favor and stop calling this game. #TNF

Some Indian organization says “Redskins” is offensive and their opinion is ordained? No… Sorry, if you live in USA, expect to be offended.
