Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
[QUOTE=CRedskinsRule;1306282]Weird thing about the Arkansas State v Chattanooga red wolves case, the articles all said a trial would occur this past October but I can not find any articles at all about the results.

Just saying a hypothetical here but suppose Washington stepped in and asked Arkansas to postpone or settle but to do so with a privacy clause until Washington announces the deal after the season.

If you are looking for a stealth bomber you look for the absence of reflections where some should be. There should be a public resolution to the Ark. v Chattanooga case especially since Chattanooga continues to use and market the Red Wolves name and logo

Sent from my SM-G781U using Tapatalk[/QUOTE]So New Years eve and I am on the couch googling this stuff. Turns out that Chattanooga and Arkansas agreed to a temporary suspension of the proceedings to allow time for them to reach a settlement. The clock for their filing started again in late November with a lot of time to resolve it. [IMG]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20220101/a9bcb200800e6f23eb75fe639e2e0f71.jpg[/IMG]

Sent from my SM-G781U using Tapatalk[/QUOTE]Speculation but decent reasoning IMO.
I was wondering the exact same thing and didn't think any further than "Well Arkansas and Chattanooga must have made a deal before the trial"... Didn't think of why it hadn't been made public.
Maybe we're overthinking, but you might be on something there.

EDIT: Saw your second post. Still could be related though.

Bidenís new dog Commander and Jeep Commander, how original. How much money spent in this process to come up with a shitty new name.[/quote]

That's just silly. Washington Commanders is almost as perfect as the Buffalo Bills when you consider that Washington was considered the best Military Commander in the history of this country.

A team in the nation's capital, surrounded by all that history' has to reflect it in some way in its name, like the capitals and the Nationals IMO

Iíd say it is even better. Buffalo isnít named after William Cody the way Washington is named after George Washington. Buffalo also uses a bison as its mascot and erroneously calls it Billy Buffalo. They even have a bison for their logo and not a buffalo. The entire thing doesnít make yet nobody cares.

That's true and besides, who cares if the name has been used before? If they take it and make it their own nobody will give a shit.

Thank you !! Your analogy of the name Commanders in reference to George Washington made complete sense!! Count me in as a fan of the Name now hopefully they will use it!!

Of course I also don't get how Buffalo Bills is a perfect fit either.

Commanders is long thatís my only Issue but it fits the DC theme and itís also unique. I canít think of another team with the name. Other than that AAF team

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
Let me get this straight.

For 83 years, we were called the Redskins- a name that had absolutely no connection whatsoever to the Washington area. Now that we have been forced to jettison the name, the new one has to have connection to the area?

Not seeing the logic.

Redskins had a faint- very, very faint- connection to their origins in Boston. The colors were influenced by those of Harvard and Boston College. The Indian moniker might have been a nod to the Boston Tea Party, but that is one of several stories and its unknowable.

So now historical connections are primary? So much so that we have to settle for a lame name like Commanders? When did this paradigm shift happen?

Not a lot of lakes or sheep in Los Angeles. Utah never was and never will be a Jazz mecca. No magical beings running around downtown DC.

We never needed a regional connection and don't need one now. Besides, how long before the same fuckwads start yammering about our militaristic name or that it is a connection to a guy who owned slaves?

And the last line about Washington owning slaves is why I think an animal name is the best/safest route.
