Two weeks after the Washington Redskins hired progressive political blogger Ben Tribbett to help defend the team's controversial name, Tribbett announced on Twitter late Monday that he will resign. "Obv. this issue with Redskins is one where I don't see eye to eye with some friends. I just don't agree with the attacks on the team name," Tribbett tweeted. Tribbett, 34, told The Washington Post on Monday night that his position on the name has not changed. "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." Tribbett wrote the progressive political blog Not Larry Sabato and broke the story of Redskins executive Bruce Allen's brother, former Virgina Sen. George Allen, controversially referring to one of his opponent's campaign volunteers as a "macaca" in 2006.
