    I went through the history of first round draft picks for the Redskins last night, and it was even worse than I thought. After drafting kicker Charlie Gogolak (!) in the first round in 1966, the team wouldn't draft another white player in the first round until 1994, when they selected the much maligned Heath Shuler. They also drafted Patrick Ramsey at the end of the first round in 2002. So, we have a grand total of THREE white first rounders in FORTY FOUR years.

    It's not quite as unbelievable as it sounds, since George Allen and later Bobby Beathard traded away several first rounders, but it is still a very telling (and sad) statistic.

    Combined with the fact they have only given ONE white WR (Ricky Thompson) decent playing time since the 1960s, and you have hands down the least white friendly team in the NFL, historically speaking.

    This is especially ironic since the Redskins were the last team in the league to allow black players. Edited by: bigunreal

    They are consistently one of the blackest teams in the league. They went from one black quarterback (Jason Campbell) to another (Donovan McNabb). They refuse to draft any white skill players and about the only good thing they have done is draft Chris Cooley who has turned out to be a stud tight end. Tribesman Dan Snyder must hate white players.

    The one exception is the early 80's when John Riggins was the man in DC.

    I was going to use this post to start another thread but I believe it fits here.

    I'll quote a post from http://the506.com/yabb/YaBB.pl?num=1264641367/50#50 (a forum where I sometimes contribute as "ixnay"). This quote, though, is from a poster thereon named "Dnbronc". The quote follows. Note whose name I boldened towards the end of the quote.

    I assume the QB that night was Theismann btw. If he gave to Riggins instead of passing to Buggs, we might have been spared Caste Joe. [​IMG]

    I'd expect as much from an "afflete" loving tribesman owner like Synder (akin to fellow tribesman Al Davis(tein)).

    I note that Caste Joe Gibbs race teams have not exactly been overflowing with affletic talent. Why is that? Hey Joe, if your football team had to be all black to be "competitive", then why aren't your race teams? Aren't blacks superior athletes in every way? Oh, I guess when it's YOUR money on the line things are different, huh?

    Daniel Snyder is one of the premier White-man-hating Jewish execs in the United States. It is and has been his personal mission to de-Arianize the Redskins football franchise. The Blackskins with its Chutzpah owner are the main reason I gave up all interest in the NFL ten years ago. I personally wish the Redskins perpetual failure and loss of capital

    It's statistics such as this that prove that white players are being discriminated against in the NFL.

    If the delusional white fans keep seeing statistics such as this it may get them to start thinking.
