[quote=CRedskinsRule;1302957]So the family of the man who created the logo is trying to get the rights to use it "so that it can become the face of the Blackie Wetzel Warrior Society, an organization that raises awareness about social inequities on Native American reservations and*missing and murdered Indigenous women. Native Americans"

I have no problem with this, [B]I wonder if all the people who took offense by its use will come out to object.[/B] Hmmmm.

Well to be fair the "human mascot" point is quite a different story whether the logo is used by a multi billions dollars sports franchise or by an association defending NA rights and bearing the name of the NA man who designed it... isn't it ? Context is everything.

I felt all along that if the franchise had actually, from the start and all the way, done enough to represent, honor and support NA communities, the discussion would have been different. Maybe I'm wrong, cuz it sure didn't feel like the most vocal anti name people cared a lot about actual Natives' opinions... but we'll never know.

Coach Gibbs is revealing the name (date to be determined) but he shot the video today per the teams page.

Pretty cool to have Joe do it.

I bet it comes out SB week

Incoming unpopular name. They need Joe to soften the blow.

Do you have a link ? Can't manage to find anything, and I'd like to read about it.

The GOAT coach for the GOAT name choice. Blow my mind Gibbs.

I think Washington Hogs is my new favorite choice. Wolves is 2nd.

D.C. Hogs would work too. Hogs goes with everything.

Thanks !
Nice to know he's involved. Hard to know to what extent, but still.

Sheehan mentioned on his pod that marketing people say it'd be smart to have a first announcement... to announce the official date the new name will be announced.
I think that's quite likely. Make it a count down to the new name announcement, build up the excitement... would make sense, wouldn't it ?

Maybe that's what they're shooting right now.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
Wonder how many team names they are deciding upon?! As should be coming up with an answer there. Just find it weird to call it WFT.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
Washington Contagion
Washington Biohazard
Washington Plague
Washington Scourge
Washington Bane

With our COVID situation, any of these would fit. Sigh.

I hope it's wolves, actually. I think some of the uni mockups for that have been neat, and the Commanders doesn't do it for me.

Maybe it will be something totally unexpected like DC Vipers or something -- there is a military aircraft by that name. I just hope it doesn't suck.

I think Hogs would appease the older generation who remembers the glory days.

But it wouldn't do anything to bring in the younger crowd (me) who has no quality memories to speak of.

It would be like naming them the Washington Slingin' Sammies - you might appease the seniors who remember those days but if you didn't witness it it doesn't hold the same weight.

I think its a cool name that just happens to be a tie-in to our past.

Washington Instagrammers or D.C. Tik Toc'ers, to pull in the younger crowd.
