It’s the latest edition of JG Sports Talk with host Amiri Tulloch!
To start today’s show, Amiri is joined by sports podiatrist and radio host Dr. Robert Weil. Dr. Weil’s show, The Sports Doctor, airs Wednesdays from 3-4 pm CST at http://healthylife.net/. Dr. Weil comments on the growing number of injuries in youth sports, and highlights some of the reasons behind the epidemic. Then, Amiri tackles the ongoing controversy that is the Washington Redskins name, explaining why he thinks owner Dan Snyder should change the team name.
Amiri looks at the history behind the name, including the franchise’s first owner’s racist past, the historic definition behind the term ‘redskin,’ and why tradition should be discounted in a decision to change the team name.
