Redskins on offensive

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Redskins launched a Twitter onslaught at Sen. Harry Reid in their campaign to keep the team’s name.

The Redskins instructed fans to tweet the Nevada Democrat to show their “RedskinsPride” and “tell him what the team means to you.”

Fans did just that — but not always in a manner the Redskins would have preferred. Many told Reid they support his efforts to change the name. Soon, both “RedskinsPride” and “changethename” were trending in the D.C. area.
