Redskins ask Washington Post to stop using name on blog

The Washington Redskins do not want you capitalizing off their brand.

And therefore they don’t want you using their name unless, you know, you’ve paid and have a contract with them.

So that end the franchise recently asked the Washington Post to change the name of “Redskins Insider,” a blog covering the team on the newspaper’s Web site. According to Dan Steinberg of the Post, the blog has been renamed “Football Insider.”

The team has a number of television productions that are done with Comcast SportsNet, but they have deals in place with the station.
