Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
For the record fuck changing the name or the franchise. Since 1999 everyone has been out to destroy this team, and this just may do it. We ALREADY can't fill the stands with out own fans.... A LOT OF THEMa say they're done with the team if a total overhaul of name and.identity happens.... It's a.damn shame. It's a joke. It's a fucking crime. Sick of bullying and pressure from bullshit ppl and ppl with money
Fuck that, fuck this... Good luck y'all let's win the division I'm fucking pissed.

Just bought 2 Redskins T Shirts on fanatics.com. The last 2 Redskins things I'll ever order. Man, it hurts a bit.

Gonna take real good care of all my gear. Gentle cycle.

2 t-shirts and a hoodie off NFL Shop for me, most of everything is 30% off now so their insanely untolerable prices are more reasonable. Paid 80 for everything.

[quote=MTK;1254287]Some people are taking it way too far. Warriors with the spear logo would be perfectly appropriate and not offensive. Warriors is a very generic term and spears aren't exclusive to Native Americans. Drop the feather off the spear if it helps but I don't think that's necessary.[/quote]The people taking it too far are the protesters.

The name Redskins is perfectly appropriate and not offensive for the Washington football team.

MTK, I think you're asking the wrong question about the name Warrior. The question isn't is it reasonable. The question is will the people pressuring Nike and FedEX over "Redskin" , protest "Warrior" next?

Making the new Washington Warriors colors basic army camo would save this mess. But then you have leftist protests about "pro-military" "white surpremacy" etc. Are people willing to stand up for that? Or kneel before the protesters like now?

And face it, "warpath" is on the same level as "teepee", "taking scalps", etc. Think the same leftist protesters won't go after those, especially after they get their way on "Redskins"?

And if you're personally OK with ditching "Redskins", why not "Warpath"? Again, I hope you don't. Just stating what's going to happen with current trends.

-------------------------------------
BTW

The dictionary definition changed over time, that's on those people, and people pressuring them.

I could have sworn a major change in definitions happened in the late 90s - 2000's, not coincidentally during Redskin protests but I've having about as much luck googling it as I am the names of people killed during recent riots vs say Floyd and Brooks. Go figure.

Cheers!

Warpath is not exclusive to Indians...

1 : the route taken by a party of American Indians going on a warlike expedition or to a war
2 : a hostile or combative course of action or frame of mind

We'll be fine.

[quote=BaltimoreSkins;1254384]Keim added in that he was told the plan is for colors to stay B&G[/quote]

To me, that's the most important part about this forced move, keeping B&G.

We need to keep SOMETHING from our franchise's 88-year history!

It's not an official forum of the team, we can call ourselves whatever we want.

If we want to be threeleggedflamingos.net and meet here to talk about our favorite football team...that's our prerogative.

Nice helmet concept for Redhawks, although I hate gray facemasks.

Small variation:

the Nation. William and Mary is the Tribe so there is something of a precedent. Nation is more inclusive than Tribe.

Would play in the Nations Capital

We, the fans, could be called the Nation

lots of other word play we could use.

I am confused is Redhawks referring too the bird or is there a Native Americain tribe named Redhawks? If Redhawks is talking about the bird then the arrow on the logo doesn't make sense.
