Blogger hired to defend Redskins name submits resignation papers, claims Twitter got “out of control”

Less than two weeks ago, the Redskins hired a political blogger named Ben Tirbbet to defend their name.  It looks like the job was harder than he thought since he’s already resigned.

Tribbett later told the Washington Post that his decision “was not reflective of me changing my position on this at all. I supported the Redskins before I took this job. … I think that’s how they found me. I still support them. I don’t think [the name is] a slur.”

It seems like everything the Redskins do to defend their name backfires.
