The season has not even started in the National Football League, but an advertisement as put the Washington Redskins in negative light. The Redskins and their fan based should be important with the health of RG3 or the team’s ability to play defense, but instead people are all abuzz about an advertisement that took a shot at the team’s controversial nickname.
Here is a look at the commercial that takes a shot at the Redskins and encourages the team to change their nickname.

Some people looked at the fact that the NBA would allow such a commercial to be aired basically taking a shot at the NFL.
Damn, NBA going hard on the NFL. Halftime of the finals they running an anti Washington Redskins commercial

While this will be a powerful moment for some and will try the ire of many people, it could also be a part of an election season that will motivate similar ads. For some fans of football and the Redskins, they would much rather focus on football.
The Washington Redskins should maybe be more concerned over the team’s performance and on actually winning games than on a stupid name. #NFL

For those that prefer to focus on the play on the field, the team seems to be headed in a positive direction. With a healthy quarterback and a better chemistry in the locker room, this team seems poised to make some noise in the NFL this season.

The NFL win totals have been released and the Redskins are only listed at 7.5 wins on the season which could be pretty tempting for Redskin backers that think they will have a great season.
Vegas odds for this NFL season’s win totals. Who are you betting on or against? http://t.co/pNl4xiF1pX

The Redskins are not getting much early respect from the lines makers as they are listed as slight underdogs for the week one game against the Houston Texans.

This ad will get all of the hype now, but when the season kicks off all of the attention will be on the Washington Redskins and their play on the field. This ad could actually sway football fans away from betting on the Redskins which in turn could actually improve the value of those that believe that the Redskins will have an unforgettable season.
