One of the us postal companies that sponsors the national football League (NFL) club “Washington Redskins”, asked the club to change its name, as it, in its opinion, offends indigenous peoples. This is reported by CBN.
“Redskins” in English means “Redskins”, and the emblem of the club is an image of an Indian.
The Washington Redskins won the NFL regular season twice (1937, 1942), and also won the so-called super bowl, the final game of the NFL playoffs, three times (1982, 1987, 1991).
We will remind, currently in the United States there are mass protests related to the death of an African-American George Floyd, who died on may 25 at the hands of a police officer who used a chokehold during detention.
“Disaster, shame, humiliation.” Tina Kandelaki – about the situation with the VFL
Match TV General producer Tina Kandelaki spoke about the situation with the suspension of the all-Russian athletics Federation (VFL).
Recall that yesterday, July 2, the international Association of athletics federations (World Athletics) confirmed that the VFL did not pay the fine until July 1 and did not provide information about when the funds will be transferred. Consideration of the issue of granting neutral status to Russian athletes has been postponed until the Council, which will be held at the end of July. The Russian side’s debt to the international organization is $ 6.31 million, including a $ 5 million fine that has been known for a long time, and $ 1.31 million in expenses incurred by World Athletics from June 30, 2019 to March 31, 2020.
“Well, the all-Russian athletics Federation did not pay a fine in favor of World Athletics of 5 million dollars. The consequences (more than likely) will be: a) Stripping our athletes of the status of neutral athletes and b) doubling the fine.
The vfla has already stated (and this is all the Federation has done!) that it is not allowed to punish athletes. Masha Lasitskene – the undisputed world leader in her discipline-tried to save the situation, and this in itself is already a wild thing: an athlete already puts his entire life on the altar of endless training, earning glory for his country. Sports officials (with rare exceptions) we don’t run very well, and they only throw spears at each other.
The whole situation in our athletics in recent years is a disaster, a disgrace and a man-made humiliation of our own clean athletes, ” Kandelaki wrote in her telegram channel.
