Virginia Sen. Chap Petersen said he couldn’t believe his ears when he heard the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board had canceled the Washington Redskins’ six federal trademark registrations owned by the team last week.
Petersen, a Democrat who represents Fairfax, was among several bipartisan Virginia state legislators who, on Monday, announced the formation of the “Redskins Pride Caucus” in Richmond, Va., in support of the team.
“I’m proud to be a Redskins fan,” Petersen told the assembled media at the State Capitol building.
On Tuesday, Petersen was a guest on 106.7 The Fan, and he further explained his outrage at the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board’s decision, which is expected to be appealed by the team.
Here’s an excerpt of his conversation with Paulsen and Rouhier:
