- Season over for Redskins star who seeks advice from legend

Whilst the football world appears to be divided on the issue with the argument of history versus ethics still raging, the newest chapter looks set to be written.

I say written and I mean that literally because there is one TV show, that has always been more than willing to address the controversial topics in the world.

Now it appears that South Park are going to take a stab at handling the Redskins naming issue in their upcoming season.

Who knows where creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are willing to go with their newest controversial issue.

In the last 17 years, Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny have addressed some very serious issues and now t seems they've turned their attentions to the NFL.

In the clip advertising season 18, Cartman appears to be the focus of the episode which will feature Dan Snyder himself and even star Quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Who knows what the episode will bring but I for one look forward to seeing it and seeing just how outrageous the show goes.

The burning issue

The issue has surrounded the Redskins organisation for months now and since the trademark on the name has been removed to try and force owner Snyder's hand in changing it, it seems like it will never end.

Many big names in football have come out and agreed with the potential name change while an equal amount have defended their current name.

Said to be racially insensitive to native Americans, many believe that the name should be changed in order to avoid the issue.

However, it seems that there may be a way around Snyder going against his promise not to change the name.

The proposal for a new stadium for the Redskins to replace FedEx Field could give them an opportunity to change the name without sparking too much controversy.

So what could they become known as? 

Well rumours are circulating that they could be known as the Washington Warriors in the near future but who knows if the Redskins will ever become known as something else.
