not only that, if you want to be pissed, i mean the cowboys must be upset also. REAL cowboys are pretty wholesome guys and NOT crack users.

So when the P.C. police finally get to Danny Boy and force him to change the team name, does anyone think that he'll go this route and just sell the team name to the highest bidder?

A co-worker and I think that in a few years we could be signing "Hail to the Walmart!" on Sundays.

Some other idea: Washington Fightin' Goldenpalacecasino.com
Exxon Mobil Drillers of Washington
Washington Haliburton Shotguns
Washington Ronald McDonald's presented by Coca-Cola
The Pepsi Generation NeXt of Washington
The Ragin' Trump Real Estates of Washington


ok, I need to get back to work before I get fired, but any other suggestions?
I for one will be rooting for my Washington Pep Boys with pride.

Danny Boy better not sell to amazon.com. The Washington Amazons sounds a little gay.

Re: Hail to Washington Walmart

If I were rich I'd pull a move like the Charolette Bobcats owner did and name the team after myself (his name is Bob, not Bobcat).

Hail to the Scotts, Hail Vic-tor-y!
Scotts on the Warpath, Fight for Ole D.C.

It brings a tear to my eye just to think about it.

bjschmonsees, I am a big soccer fan too and was initially pretty appalled with such a commercial name. Then I realized it was bestowed on the Metroturds and was pretty excited about the whole thing. I have a feeling the screaming eagles and barra brava will have a lot of fun with the slogan "Red Bull, it gives you wings" all next season.

Re: Hail to Washington Walmart

Given how much Redbull is planning to pump into the league, I guess it's an ok deal for MLS. But it is pretty silly.

Wonder how long before other teams and sports follow suit? Also, I'm still surprised that the NFL, NBA, etc haven't sold uniform advertising like they have in Soccer. There's lots of money in that--when people buy their team's jerseys, they buy the advertisement as well.

USA Germany 2006!!!

Re: Hail to Washington Walmart

The team will change its name when the term 'redskin' becomes offensive to the fan base here in the DC metro area. If this were Oklahoma, it would be a more sensitive matter. But it's not, so it isn't.

Some people don't seem to understand that 'Washington Redskins' is ingrained in the culture of the area. We are all Redskins. It's all positive. Most of my heros are Redskins. To change the name is to give up the fight song. Oh H311 no, no, no. Hail to the Googles just doesn't work.

Someday the fundamental croud will go after the Washington Wizards for devil worship.

rant over

Re: Hail to Washington Walmart

Well, Red Bull already owns a soccer team in Austria... now called Red Bull Salzburg.
They totally destroyed ALL of the tradition the club had... new colors, homepage totally revised (former championship etc. deleted), forbids coming to games in the old colors and so on.
Id say, the Metrobulls-fans will have to deal the same things...
for further information here is the link to the "oldschool" fans of Austria Salzburg, english HP version: www.violett-weiss.at

Even though Im not THE total knower of Redskins History, I think renaming a team is just plain stupid, no matter what money comes out.
