I can't get excited about anything hog or pig related. Makes me want to eat bbq not watch football. And the pig jokes would be annoying as all hell.

A name I really like is the Raptors (the jet).

Washington Raptors

I know another pro team has the name but it's a completely different thing/reference.

Wouldn't even necessarily need a logo on the helmet, the helmet could be fashioned to look like a fighter pilot helmet.

[quote=skinsnut;1254203]I stand corrected.
The new name is the Washington Mooby's[/quote]

Terrible, who came up with that garbage?

Pretty cool name, wouldnt mind the dinosaur either, but I understand the jet/military thing.

The only way I can support Warriors is if they completely dump any reference to native americans and go full military, change colors to cammo or red and white (DC) and have a military honor section in the stadium and honor a vet every halftime. Have flyovers, bring in the marines marching band and go full on military. Discount tickets, the works. even host Army/navy game.

I definately dont want Redtails, we are just swinging from one ethnic group to another, eventually someone will find out the guy who named them was a pedifile or something.

It's hard not to admire the Tuskegee Airmen and I like the notion of the name being a nod to them. A few years ago, I brought my son to a book fair where one of them was doing a signing. Meeting him was a great experience and I am glad my son was able to shake hands with a true hero.

But ... Red Tails just does not do it for me.

What if instead of honoring the Tuskegee Airmen the logo became a dominatrix with a paddle?

While there is some appeal in that, I am not sure I can stomach Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda leading a new campaign against us. :D

(I'm aware it has less than 0% chance of happening, but since we're throwing ideas out there...)

Wouldn't it be fun to have a super-non-badass animal as a team name ?

Like if we were the [I]Washington Ferrets[/I] or Squirrels, every Sunday would be a win-win situation:

If we lose, at least you had fun yelling "Come on Ferrets! Let's goooo! Show a bit of pride and fight like a true ferret!" at your TV.
If we win, our opponents have to walk away and hear how they "got completely dominated by the Ferrets".

^^^^^

Rather just be the Wolves

Then the fans would be the Wolfpack
