RUSH: But this Redskins thing, this is clearly, and it always has been a media thing. The Redskins fans are not upset. The Redskin donor class, season ticket holders, they’re not upset. The Redskins players are not upset. RG3 doesn’t care. There’s nobody upset. Other NFL teams are not upset. Now, the NFL meetings, the next scheduled meetings are tomorrow in Washington and there is nothing on the agenda to deal with the name of the Redskins.
However, the media says that some owners who are getting nervous about the negative PR are going to take Dan Snyder aside and start working him over on the idea that at some point they’re going to have to deal with this because this is a situation that is untenable. But Snyder is making it as clear as he can make it that he’s not changing the name. He went out and hired cheap big paleface Lanny Davis of Clinton fame to be the front man on this in terms of PR. Lanny Davis. Number one Clinton defender during Lewinsky. And Lanny Davis is out there with all kinds of polling data from everywhere that shows there isn’t anywhere near a majority.
