Minority Owners Of Washington Redskins Looking To Sell Stake In Team

Published

on

Three individual minority owners of the Washington Redskins professional football team are looking to sell off their shares in the team amid controversy over the team’s name. Again.

Yes, it seems the Redskins are forever caught in a loop of having to defend their team name from the gaggle of social justice warriors running around the nation screaming and crying about faux systemic racism and crusading for causes like renaming sports teams in order to make themselves feel important and like they have a purpose.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

Businessmen Robert Rothman, Dwight Schar, and Frederick Smith have hired an investment banking firm to conduct the search for potential buyers, which, according to one unnamed source, was happening because they are “not happy being a partner” of majority owner Daniel Snyder, the Washington Post reported. ProFootballTalk first reported that Schar and Smith were trying to sell their share of the team on Sunday.

Rothman is chairman and CEO of Black Diamond Capital, a private investment company; Schar is chairman of NVR Inc., one of the largest homebuilder companies in the country; and Smith is the chairman, president, and CEO of FedEx, which has a long-standing partnership with the football franchise. Together, they account for about 40% of the team’s ownership. The remaining stake rests with Snyder, his mother, and his sister.

The organization said on Friday that it will conduct a “thorough review” of the team’s name amid new demands that it stops referring to the team as the Redskins, which critics view as being racist and insensitive to Native Americans.

Snyder released a statement last Friday saying, “This process allows the team to take into account not only the proud tradition and history of the franchise but also input from our alumni, the organization, sponsors, the National Football League, and the local community it is proud to represent on and off the field.”

Snyder bought the team back in 1999 and has been resisting the call to rename the franchise. He’s only started to move on this after receiving enormous pressure from both the public and the corporate sponsors who help fund the team, much of this pressure the result of the death of George Floyd while in police custody.

FedEx, which has authority over the naming rights of the team’s stadium, released a statement late last Thursday that said, “We have communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name.”

There was a study done a few years back from the Washington Post, where lots of Native American folks were asked whether the name of the team offended them. A whopping 9 out of 10 said that it didn’t and was actually a source of pride for them.

So who, exactly, is offended by this? White left-wing crusaders. Makes sense, right? They need to feel important and have latched on to this little “cause,” having created the hoopla from scratch to justify their own existence.

Talk about hubris.

Isn’t that an example of the “white savior complex” that the left supposedly hates, yet engages in every single day?

Save conservative media!

Donald Trump accomplished more in one term than anybody thought possible. He managed to make even many “never Trump” Republicans see the light, with the way he went about business in the Oval Office. Unfortunately, Trump will not be able to serve a consecutive term and continue to expose government malfeasance. That being said, there’s still a whole lot POTUS can give us before leaving 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on the 20th.

Joe is quite the card, even after all these decades. WATCH: Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

School Featured In ‘Remember the Titans’ Might Be Renamed ‘Kamala Harris High’

Great movie, terrible idea.

Giving Kamala Harris the title of vice president is pretty awful. Senator was bad enough. But now she’s going to be honored with her name on a school? What’s next? Forget Harriet Tubman and put the woman who slept her way into politics on the $20? From TDW: T.C. Williams High School, well known for its prominent role in the popular Disney film “Remember The Titans”, could soon be renamed as “Kamala Harris High School.” In November, the Alexandria City School Board voted unanimously to remove Williams’ name due to his support of segregation while serving as superintendent of the Alexandria, VA, school system. According to the school, Williams was a “staunch segregationist whose views could not have been more inconsistent with the vibrant, diverse and inclusive place we know today.” Students are being given the chance to vote. The final decision will be made in April. Other options the kids have to choose from are “George Floyd High School” and “Ruth Bader Ginsburg High School.” If it came down to Kamala, George, or Ruth, you’d have to go with RBG High…right?? Here’s a clip from the film… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYp94Kk8AdE
