Washington Redskins owner 'thrilled' by Supreme Court's trademark ruling

Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder said Monday he's "thrilled" about the Supreme Court decision striking down a federal trademark law banning names the government deems offensive.

The court ruling came in a separate case brought by Oregon-based, Asian-American band The Slants, which had been denied a trademark because its name was considered disparaging. The court ruled Monday that the law is unconstitutional.

The decision has direct implications for the Redskins’ dispute with the same office – the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which canceled numerous trademarks for the team back in 2014 over allegations the name is insulting to Native Americans.

Good! The iconic Redskins identity has been around for a long time just like Chief Wahoo of the Cleveland Indians. There is no intent to disparage Native Americans and being an Indians fan so totally identify with the Indians trademark. By the way...did anyone see the score from last night's game? Ouch!

Common sense, yet the owner of the Redskins still lacks that from an NFL perspective. Owner since 1999 and the team still stinks! Move to VA where you belong!!!
