Just in case you thought this whole Redskins name controversy was new, this is from the Lincoln (Nebraska) Journal Star back in January -- January of 2003."Readers of the sports pages may notice a change in the newspaper's style beginning today: We have stopped using the nickname 'Redskins' to refer to the professional football team of the nation's capital. When we're reporting on that team, we'll call it Washington."Native Americans aren't the only ones who think some team names should be changed. Lots of other groups would probably like to see some changes.
