    Monk, Green: Mull name changeUpdated: July 23, 2013, 12:03 PM ET
    ESPN.com news services

    Washington Redskins Hall of Famers Art Monk and Darrell Green say the team should consider changing the team's nickname because it is offensive to many Native Americans.

    Owner Daniel Snyder has said he will never change the team's nickname, but Monk and Green told WTOP Radio in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday that the topic isn't one that should be so easily dismissed.

    "[If] Native Americans feel like Redskins or the Chiefs or [another] name is offensive to them, then who are we to say to them 'No, it's not?'" Monk told the radio station.

    Monk, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2008 and is the Redskins' all-time leader in receptions (888) and yards receiving (12,026), added that a name change should be "seriously considered."


    Green, a former cornerback who was also inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2008 and is the Redskins' franchise leader in interceptions (54), agreed that a name change should be under consideration.


    "It deserves and warrants conversation because somebody is saying, 'Hey, this offends me,'" Green told the radio station.


    In May, 10 members of Congress sent a letter to the Redskins, the NFL and its other 31 teams, calling for a name change.


    Commissioner Roger Goodell, however, defended the team's nickname in a letter to the members of Congress, writing that the Redskins name "is a unifying force that stands for strength, courage, pride and respect."


    The nickname is the subject of a long-running legal challenge from a group seeking to have the team lose its trademark protection.

    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

      Except Native Americans aren't saying that it's offensive. Only a very small, idiotic percentage of them are.

        Washington WR Pierre Garçon commented to reporters that he thought “the Redskins’ offense could be the best ever in the NFL”. Thoughts?

              WATCH: A Redskins fan gets ultra-upset after preseason practice
              By Josh Katzowitz | NFL WriterJuly 25, 2013 9:20 pm ET

              If you want to be annoyed by somebody who appears to be a Redskins fan, do not (I repeat, DO NOT) click on the video below.

              But if you're a masochist or you just enjoy fans complaining about their first-world problems or you like to see multiple saliva lines stretched across the mouth of somebody who's hurt that SHE DIDN'T GET AN AUTOGRAPH, by all means, press play.

              Ten bucks says you can't get through the whole ordeal, via recordsANDradio, without wanting to punch yourself in the face.

              Oh, and if you go to Redskins training camp, be aware that, just like 99.9 percent of the days in your life, you might not end the experience with an autograph from an NFL player.

              You, dear reader, have been warned!

                    What a fricking loser.

                    "I've been a Redskins fan all my life and no one came over to where I was standing"

                    Yea, like the players stand around at the end of a shitty practice and look out into the crowd and wonder "Hmmmm, I wonder which ones here have been fans forever and took the day off work?"

                            She will probably end up with a boatload of autographed Redskins' swag and watch a game in the owner's box.

                              Watching it again, that seems like a lot of fake crying.
