Washington (AIP) - Bowing to intense pressure from powerful critics, including 49 Democratic United States Senators, Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder today announced that he plans to change the team's name.
"From now only this team will be known as The Cunts," said Snyder at Friday's press conference. "I'm profoundly sorry if our previous name offended anyone."
Snyder said that team attorneys have already obtained a copywrite on the new moniker and artists are presently working on a new symbol for the sides of player's helmets.
"We, the Cunts, are moving forward and hoping to put all this talk about offending folks in the past and just play ball," said Snyder.
