• Rick Reilly Just Wrote The Worst Thing. Let's Remember The Good Times.

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Sep 19, 2013
    Reilly is entitled to his opinion, although he never makes a definitive statement as to which side he actually falls on. Rick Reilly’s most recent column for ESPN delves into the Redskins name issue, largely decrying his colleagues who have made public shows of rejecting it. But the Peter King and Christine Brennan columns Reilly criticized didn’t illicit the same amount of immediate vitriol as this one did. And then there was the ending. Doesn’t matter. “I guess this is where I’m supposed to fall in line and do what every other American sports writer is doing,” he writes. “I’m supposed to swear I won’t ever write the words “Washington Redskins” anymore because it’s racist and offensive and a slap in the face to all Native Americans who ever lived. Maybe it is.” He goes on to make points about his Native American father-in-law and “white America.”
