I saw an article somewhere that mentions Washington Revolution. Itís not entirely historically accurate but goes in an very different direction. Iíd be ok with that. Americaís team!

My 3 favorite ... not that anyone is asking me, or gives a damn ...


Renegades

Pig Skins

Sentinels



Hate the Generals.

Red Hawks is blah.

Red Tails feels like straight out pandering. And what happens if it is discovered that the Red Tails committed some war time atrocity or something? Not saying they did, but tieing our mascot to something so specific to appease the PC mob seems risky. Are we gonna go through this again?

Warriors doesn't do anything for me. But it will probably be the name.

If they continue playing poorly then Generals would be appropriate .....Harlem Globetrotters opponent

Dude could you bust on the scene with more bullshit all caps racist crap? You have been a member for 16 hours and will be the first person i ever blocked.
This post is not what I am referring to as racist. That would be the one that shows your complete intolerance of the BLM movement.

Keep it simple.

Washington Braves - Keep the current logo

And

Washington Red tails - NO
Washington Generals - Hello NO

NIKE is a piece of shit company. With all of the issues in the world: the current pandemic, homelessness, sex trafficking, troops with PTSD, our political climate, they focus on a footballs teams name.

I think having a person other than the parents to name children is a great idea!

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
I personally like the RED TAILS, because they have a great story and they were in the Army Air Corps in WWII. However, many people have never heard of the Tuskegee Airmen. I actually was in a USAF unit in Iraq, called the 332 Air Expeditionary Wing. They called themselves the Red Tails ( which what that unit did to all their airplanes in WWII - they painted there vertical stabilizer Red, so it could be easily recognized). When Air Force units are deployed to combat locations, the unit they go to is the same number and name of a FAMOUS Air Force unit.

BUT, I think Snyder is going with the Native American theme. The problem with WARRIORS or BRAVES is that name is used by a team in another sport. That includes the Generals - a team that loses to the Harlem Globetrotters.

I think he will go for a real Native American tribe. There are HUNDREDS of tribes to choose from, so I think it will be a FAMOUS and well-known tribe. That gets you down to a much smaller list:

CHEYENNE
APACHE
SIOUX
NAVAHO
COMMANCHE
CREEK
MOHAWK

There are no major sports teams with any of these tribes.

I believe it will be one of these tribes. Not Red Tails, not Generals, not Red Hawks, not Warriors or Braves.

It isn't the worst idea when you hear all of those stories where children get given horrible names because their parents are trying to be cool or edgy.

"KingMessiah" might be the worst name i've ever heard, besides many years ago when there was that baby named "Fighter Pilot" or something like that...

Warriors or RedHawks.

Dan wants to keep the colors and logo so that would work.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
Hello all,

I have lurked here for years, but the current situation has motivated me to join this fine forum. I have bled burgundy & gold since 1971. I am sick about the name change and am trying to come to terms with it.

IMHO the best scenarios are:

1) [B]Washington Warriors[/B]: Switch to the 1960s spear logo and tweak the fight song. Most everything remains so it would be palatable. The one problem- and it could be a big one- is that we would still be in the realm of Native Americans with the spear logo

2) [B]Washington Redhawks:[/B] Take a cue from Miami University in Ohio. Switch to the late 60s/early 70s "R" logo and tweak the fight song. Emphasize the scripted Rs and avoid too much bird talk. Hassle free as the Native American stuff is jettisoned once and for all.

More unconventional choices:

[B]Washington Braves:[/B] I am a stickler for tradition and Braves is the original name. Having one syllable makes the fight song harder to tweak. And we are still in Native American territory.

[B]Washington Redskins[/B]: I used to think that maybe Snyder could ditch the current logo and return to the aforementioned "R" logo. Also expunge any other Native American references. Then issue a press release that states the name now refers to the color of the uniforms, nothing more. But I doubt Snyder could pull it off.

[B]Washington Hogs[/B]: With the right moves, it could work.
