It is now the openest of open seasons on the Redskins. Among those to weigh in Wednesday: Howard Stern.

“Well I’ve got to tell you: I don’t know who the owner of the Redskins is; I don’t follow it that closely,” Stern began, via Jimmy Traina. “But [expletive], this guy has dug his heels into the sand. The guy’s name is Dan Snyder? You know, it’s so foolish. It obviously is an offensive name.

“Why would he be so dead-set against change?” Stern went on.  “I mean, the team is still going to be there. Even if it was like the Washington Reds, or something, I don’t know. I mean, what would it mean to him? It’s just like, give these American Indians a break. Their entire history has been obliterated. Their entire ancestry is gone. If it really bothers them that much that there’s a team, the Washington Redskins, [bleeping] change it. Have a heart.”

Also weighing in recently: Martina Navratilova.

And John Legend.

And Albert Brooks.

And Dennis Miller.
