It seems like the debate over the controversial Washington Redskins name will never end, and on Friday another Redskins great spoke his mind on the issue.
Many former Washington players have spoken out on the issue with such as Champ Bailey, Art Monk and Tre Johnson all in favour of the name change.
As with most things in sport there are contrasting opinions, Jeff Bostic, Joe Theismann and Chris Cooley present the pride in the name and think it should stay the same.
Now NFL Hall of Famer Russ Grimm has had his voice heard, Grimm claims: It hasn't offended anybody for a long time. I've never heard of anybody calling [someone] Redskins where it’s a derogatory name."
Grimm even used former Redskins player Bailey in his argument saying "I saw the article with Champ Bailey and stuff like that. Is it that far? No. Do I think they should change it? No."
The only person who really needs to be persuaded is Redskins owner Daniel Snyder who maintains that the name is derogatory.
The debate is clearly far from over and as more and more former players add their opinions, it seems it will be one to divide the franchise personalities for a long time to come.
