Sports - Washington Post editorials drop `Redskins` name


The Washington Post newspaper`s editorial board announced Friday it will no longer use the controversial nickname of the National Football League`s Washington Redskins, supporting calls that the word is offensive. The newspaper`s editorial page has championed a name change for many years, noting in 1992 the term Redskins `is really pretty offensive` to Native Americans, with the team`s logo a profile of a Native American warrior`s face. Team owner Daniel Snyder has disagreed and is fighting a court ruling that would strip the `Redskins` trademark from the team, likely pressuring the league to force a name change for financial reasons to avoid counterfeit products and lost revenues in an area where all league teams share income. The Post editorial board said the issue is no longer a question to its members.

Sports - White House defends Obama`s golf outings during crises


By Steve Holland EDGARTOWN Mass. (Reuters) - President Barack Obama delivered a somber statement on the death of American journalist James Foley after a video emerged showing Foley`s grisly execution by Islamic State militants. Then Obama proceeded directly to a golf course to play 18 holes. `Bam`s Golf War,` blared the cover of the New York Daily News, showing a picture of the smiling president behind the wheel of a golf cart, while Foley`s parents grieved over their son in a smaller photo lower on the page. Criticism of Obama was not universal but emerged on both sides of the political spectrum, with former Vice President Dick Cheney attacking the president and left-leaning blogger Ezra Klein saying in a tweet that it was in bad taste.

Sports - Washington Post editorial board no longer using word `Redskins`


The Washington Post editorial board will generally avoid using the word `Redskins` when referring to Washington`s football team, it announced on Friday, saying the term denigrates Native Americans. A growing number of newspapers and sportswriters, including the Post`s Mike Wise, have said they will no longer use the team`s moniker. `While we wait for the NFL to catch up with public opinion and common decency we have decided not to use the slur ourselves except when it is essential for clarity or effect,` the board said in a statement, referring to the National Football League. The editorial board controls only the paper`s opinion pages and is separate from the Post`s news-gathering side, which will continue to use the name, Marty Baron, the paper`s executive editor, said.

Sports - Chiefs Stephenson suspended four games


(Reuters) - Kansas City Chiefs starting right tackle Donald Stephenson has been suspended the first four games of the regular season for violating the league`s policy on performance enhancing substances, the National Football League team said on Friday. Selected by the Chiefs in the third round of the 2012 draft, Stephenson started seven games for Kansas City last year and was expected to a cornerstone of the offensive line this season. `I failed to check with the NFL, NFLPA or Chiefs medical team before I took a medication that requires a therapeutic use exemption,` Stephenson said in a statement through his agent. His loss is a blow to the Chiefs, who also parted ways with tackle Branden Albert and guards Jon Asamoah and Geoff Schwartz during the offseason.
