Politics in the NFL. Don’t want to admit mistake. Can’t do anything to fix it. Cheating. Unsportsmanlike conduct penalty…BS!

Touchdown on opening possession. RGIII 16/17 for 149 yards. Multiple players working together to push the Giants out of the end zone.

The Redskins are obviously not the GREATEST TEAM in the NFL, but we still love them and will always cheer no matter what especially when the referees mess up but DON’T FIX THEIR MISTAKES. I was at the game and the Redskins were playing very well. The referees were just idiots.

The Washington Redskins were told it was FIRST AND TEN, not THIRD AND ONE and Coach Kyle Shanahan called the play that was supposed to be done…for a first and ten.

Referee Jeff Triplette signaled third down but the head linesman — with Washington in a ‘hurry-up’ situation — incorrectly motioned for the chain crew to advance the chains, which caused the down boxes to read first down.

Following a Washington incomplete pass, the chains were moved back and the down boxes correctly reset to fourth down.

I understand that the Redskins did not have any time-outs left, but saying that is why you didn’t fix the mistake you made is complete bullshit. Triplette said “I feel like we signaled third down. The stakes just got moved incorrectly.”

Dear Triplette, I feel like you need to be fired. Maybe the Redskins would have won, maybe they still would have lost, but all that matters though is the fact the officials ruined the end of that game with the most embarrassing mistake ever.

NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino said in a statement Monday,

 Referee Jeff Triplette and his crew erred on multiple fronts during the Washington Redskins’ final drive against the New York Giants on Sunday night.

The Redskins have absolutely no chance of making it to the NFC playoff contention and have a firm grip of placing last in the NFC East. The Redskins beat the Giants last season at Fed Ex Field 17-16. December 29, 2013 the Redskins will be playing the Giants again, and I hope 1. THERE ARE BETTER REFS WHO DO THEIR JOB CORRECTLY/ADMIT TO THEIR MISTAKES and 2. THAT THE REDSKINS WILL KICK THE NEW YORK GIANTS ASSES at that game.

Hail to the Redskins. Blandino and Triplette, I hope you know that your politics for the game were noted. Blandino needs to make this right, make up for the mistake of your idiotic, worthless refs who cheat at the game.

And for all of you Giants fans or any other NFL fans– I’m sorry if this article upsets you, but when a mistake is that BIG, something needs to be done.Redskins2

I am a huge Washington Redskins fan. I know, they have their ups and downs when they play, but I am a true, dedicated FAN. I would hate to see them change the name of this team.

redskins1Oneida Indian Nation held a symposium in town to discuss their campaign to find a new name for the Washington Redskins after 80 years.This tribe views the name and mascot of the Washington Redskins as a racial slur and say that it has an ugly history and tradition.

Redskins owner Dan Snyder has steadfastly refused to consider it, telling USA Today last spring that he will “NEVER” change his team’s name, even if they lose an ongoing federal trademark lawsuit that would stop the NFL team from exclusively profiting from the Redskins name.

The NFL confirmed on Monday, that they will meet with the Oneida Indian Nation leaders to talk about their concerns with the name and mascot of the Washington Redskins.

But Redskins attorney Lanny Davis said Halbritter is being “selective in his outrage,” citing other teams named after Native Americans who are not targeted in the “Change the Mascot” campaign.

“Why is he not protesting the Atlanta Braves Tomahawk Chop, or President Obama’s hometown Chicago Blackhawks?” Davis said.

President Obama is open to the name change of the Redskins….

It is a name, and if they find it offensive, don’t support the Redskins. However, here is the history of the Washington Redskins name:

  1. Boston Braves (1932)
  2. Boston Redskins (1933–1936)
  3. Washington Redskins (1937–present)
