Allen: 'I'm Proud Of What We Represent'

Posted Mar 7, 2013

Redskins GM Bruce Allen addressed the media following Thursday's hearing at the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

Redskins general manager Bruce Allen addressed the media following Thursday's hearing at the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, speaking in favor of the Redskins' name and legacy.

"I'm proud to be a member of the Washington Redskins and what our organization has stood for, for 81 years. [I'm proud of] what we've represented to our community and to people across the world that are Washington Redskins fans," he said. "If you look at everything that we represent, you'll find that the Washington Redskins have a positive image.

"Our Washington Redskins Charitable organization, and what it's done for this community with youth programs. I suggest people really closely look at what we do as an organization, to represent the good values in business and sports."

Asked several questions about the power of a name, Allen said: "That's part of our history. That's who we are. There have been coaches and players and fans that have supported this team through the decades, and its our job to make sure they support us in the upcoming decades."

Allen, son of former head coach George Allen, mentioned his own personal history with the organization, including his days as a Redskins' ball boy in the 1970s.

Allen focused the discussion on a legacy more than eight decades in the making.

"We're proud of where we're taking the franchise. We want to protect the game of football and this franchise for the fans, the players and the coaches," he said. "We'll stand by what our organization does. That's who we represent and we look forward to representing them in the future.

He continued: "Our history is something to be proud of. Five world championships. Some of the greatest games and some of the greatest characters to have ever played in the NFL were Washington Redskins. I don't think you can just turn your back on that, and we don't plan on doing that."

Asked specifically about today's hearing, Allen said the team had no plans to change anything, and that legal proceedings would determine the rest.

"I'll let the lawyers talk about the merits of both sides' case; I'm talking about the Washington Redskins," he explained. "I know that our fans are proud of us. I know that there are Native Americans that are very proud of us and who are fans of our football team.

"I think there are laws in this country that we've abided by since 1933, and we'll continue to. I've got to worry about our fans and the future of our organization."
