Hate mail to Naval Lt. in NFL?

Redskins hope to get injured players back

In order to play in the NFL, Kettani, who was recently promoted to lieutenant, negotiated a deal with the Department of Defense in 2012 to serve the remainder of his 10-year military service in the Naval reserves. That decision might make some Redskins fans very happy this season, but many people around the United States resented Kettani for his decision.

I received some hate mail, saying, Go back to the military, do your job, and do what you signed up for, Kettani said during an interview on NFL Network on Thursday morning.

‘Redskins’ and irrelevance of public opinion

Mull-USA TODAY Sports Located in Richmond, VA, the Washington Redskins broke ground on their new Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center in January of 2013. With remarkable speed, construction is now complete and the facility is ready to use, not only by Redskins and team affiliates, but also by the local community. Through construction of the $10 million state-of-the-art facility, the Redskins have vastly opened up their community outreach efforts. Training camp is only three weeks long, allowing for roughly 48 weeks local non-profit events, kid-oriented physical fitness programs, and times where local residents can use the grounds. So why are the Redskins so smart for building this facility? Well, this will be the first time in 12 years that the camp will be located outside of the D.C. Metropolitan area. By moving farther south, the Redskins are expanding their fan base and making the claim that they are not only a D.C. team, but also Virginias home NFL Team. Local Richmond residents living in the Virginia state capital will be reminded all year round that the Redskins are their NFL team. Redskins analysts estimate that the center will attract over 100,000 new fans a year, with 60 percent of them being traveling tourists from a radius of 100 miles from Richmond.

Your life is not affected in any meaningful way. Redskins owner Dan Snyder says he won’t do it, which is completely his prerogative as long as he owns the team. He says he’s not trying to offend anyone, but I don’t think that’s something of which anyone’s accused him. He didn’t name the team, and I don’t believe his motivation for keeping the name has anything to do with racism. From Snyder’s perspective, the name simply doesn’t mean what it meant to those who once used it as a slur. Keeping the name is not, of itself, an act of insensitivity.

3 steps to success: Can Washington put its stamp on the NFC East?

This also refers to staying committed to the running game, which was the second-most productive in the NFL according to Football Outsiders’ DVOA rankings. Alfred Morris had a good case to be rookie of the year, if not for his teammate. Washington ran the more on than 50 percent of its offensive snaps last year. That also helped set up a devastating play action pass. In addition to its effectiveness, leaning on the run will help keep RGIII healthy. 2. London Fletcher Fletcher is the leader of the defense and plays like a warrior, never missing a snap. At the ripe old age of 37, Fletcher recorded 137 tackles and five interceptions last season while proving that he’s still one of the better linebackers in football. Now, the 38-year-old Fletcher needs to remain a force if the Redskins are going to continue building a strong defense.

Washington Redskins Practice Smart Community Outreach in 2013

RGIII Training Camp

Roy Helu, Washington’s top rusher in 2011, returned in June after being sidelined for the final 13 games of 2012 with a toe injury. Davis (Achilles) and receiver Pierre Garcon (shoulder), who figure to be Griffin’s top targets when healthy, are expected to be ready for the start of training camp on July 25. So should Meriweather (knee) and cornerback Josh Wilson (pec). If Carriker (quadriceps) is the only critical player unavailable when the Redskins convene for training camp, it will definitely have been a successful offseason. Strengths: Griffin set NFL passing and rushing records while being voted the Offensive Rookie of the Year.

“Redskins” Winning Hearts & Minds

But when ten members of Congress (May letter to Goodell) and a local DC politico (David Grossos removal resolution reportedly had majority Council support (Pol Calls / ESPN (AP) / 5-1) make waves on an NFL logo, media story-spotters dive in head first. Its true that some of the most noble causes in history had scant public support in early stages (desegregation), but besides PC-forces, play-it-safe college elite and an unclear tribal voice, the 30-year Indian-moniker removal policy, while largely successful, has appeared more form-fashionable than substance-significant, i.e., it hasnt resonated. Turning point in this battle in the War of Perspective mayve come in NFL Commissioner Roger Goodells public response (6-11) to the fed letter, appearing in the online Indian Country Today Media Network. In it, he backs Redskins owner Dan Snyder, validating the moniker Snyder vows to never change: the name is a unifying force that stands for strength, courage, pride and respect (Roger / Huff-Post / 6-12 / C. Greenberg). Goodell adds, the issues raised are complex, and we respect that reasonable people may view it differently.
