Yeeeesh. If I were a Redskins fan, I would never admit that, and would never sing that song. Go look up the lyrics and the history of that song. They might as well have Aunt Jemima as a mascot, and sing a song about lynching slaves. That team, its fight song, its name and its mascot, are an embarrassment to the NFL.
I'm seriously amazed that Goodell hasn't stepped in and FORCED that crappy second-rate team to change its name and song lyrics. It was tasteless in the 50's and it's even worse now, in the 21st Century. The only saving grace is that the racism is so dated and tacky that it almost seems "antique" or something. You almost don't notice.
This is obviously smack talk, but yes, we love our fight song:
"Hail to the Redskins
Braves on the Warpath, Fight for old DC!
Run or pass or score we want a lot more!
Beat 'em, stomp 'em, touchdown let the points soar!
Fight on, fight on, til you have won, sons of Wash-Ing-Ton!
RAH RAH RAH!
Hail to the Redskins
Braves on the Warpath, Fight for old DC!"
The song has been changed over the years, but the original version is long gone and this is the version that we know and love.
But I understand your point, if its about the old school version. Be rest assured, that one has been gone for a very long time
