Seems so, I'd had been on board with that had it allowed to keep a reference to NA. Without that it's so generic. Diet Coke Redskins like.

What a bullshit reason to jump ship! Snyder didn't want to change the name. He fought the name change as long as he could. Now he is being forced to change the name by unavoidable circumstances beyond his control.

The good news is that we'll be keeping our beloved B&G colors. That means a lot to me.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
I feel like skinsfaninok - seeing the team change its name is a lot to process mentally.

It just doesn't feel the same, thinking about whatever the name is, Redtails, redhawks, redwolves, redspears, redSHITS, whatever it is it is just sad IMO that today's cancel culture has brought about this.

I guess i just need to give this a chance to see if i can get behind it. If i can't, then i'm probably done as a fan of this team. I, like a lot of people, have been considering my fandom the last couple of seasons as thing with Snyder has gotten worse and worse, we went through the Bruce Allen debacle, now this, it just seems like things are getting worse and worse. But i am going to do my best to see if I can get behind this new start.

Be careful Snake, I don't think you can say that on here. You gotta put a star in like so: "sh*ts". I don't want you to get in trouble.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
I'm sorry if I was all negative and dramatic yesterday but the Redskins were my childhood , football in general down south saved many of us in our certain situations.

If it's the Warriors I'm staying
Redwolves is ok but it's also the name of Arkansas state football...

I guess I will have to really think about it and losing the skins still doesn't seem real to me.. Crazy what a Football team can do to you

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
I hate the circumstances of this name change. Its never been discussed or proven that the name Redskins is offensive. Were just being run over by a liberal mob. Its devastating and my worst sports nightmare. As foR the alternatives...Warriors is the best but only if we can use some variation of the spear helmet and have some subtle references to NA. Otherwise Id probably go with Redwolves but not as enthusiastically as others. Just please no dumb Washington DC political red white and blue nonsense.

Fred Smoot says it's going to be Redwolves , Lake Lewis told me "Warriors is his guess but Redwolves has a legit chance as well"

Pretty good read it is an opinion piece but a lot of his fears resonate with me in regards to the rush job we are seeing. Snyder knew this day was inevitable and yet unprepared.

I hope they announce theyre dropping Redskins and will just go by Washington for one season while this process plays out properly.

I had read that the other owners have to sign off on the name as well.. I'm not sure how legit that is

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
I think we all hate the circumstances. I hope it is Redwolves for the simple reason it is an animal, we can keep same color scheme and I don't think any other professional sports team is called Redwolves. Coming up with a logo should not be that difficult. Could go with the name for a year until the make a logo they really like There are some colleges that changed to from Redskins to Redwolves...

if it is the Warriors can still keep the same color scheme. The spear logo would be cool with this but slight chance of the liberals complaining about that also......
.
And call me silly or bitter - if the liberals don't want a native american name or theme I'd rather have a clean break from it.

I think the FSU Spear would be fine

For Redwolves you could have the wolf on the helmet and the R logo on the sleeves

I think that is an error too. I think the league has to approve the name. I also hope they drop the name, play as Washington football and wait and do their due diligence.

Correct, the other owners do not vote on the name. Just has to be approved by the league office/commissioner. Although the owners vote for the commissioner to represent them, so in that regards they did vote already.
