Ditto.


Snyder and the Redskins, especially the cheerleaders who visit bases all over the world in the offseason, have always been huge military supporters. It's really a natural move if we must bury the Native American theme.




Check out the logo behind them in this pcture...could be useful!

I'm all for military themed too, but that may be hard with our color scheme

The fans want Redwolves

Not if you honor the Marines!




This is a nice looking concept for Warriors if we can't use the spear.

Be sure to click right for more images.



Another one but the logo is a bit busy and probably too "Indian" to be a go.

That's bad

The Warriors logo was good but I agree too much Indian stuff in there to work

Anything with hogs or pigs is just silly

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
If I was DS i'd set up a site/email address to send in suggestions. Then a poll of the top 3 based a) most suggested and b) ruling out any that would be just as contentious. Then a competition for (kids in?) the DC area to come up with a design based on the chosen name. By the time they've done all that it will be too late to change anything this season anyway and it will be a good publicity stunt to get the community involved. Set up a website for the poll/entry submissions and get FedEx to sponsor it. Kill two (red)birds with one stone...

I like this. Wolves or Red Wolves is the way to go. Plus, this or a similar logo would translate well onto a helmet or shirts.

Agree. Also no names that need some big explanation about how the name "honors" this military squad or that veterans group. Something simple that can give a good clean logo is all that's needed.

NO POLLS.


Fans will pick something stupid...and online polls can easily be manipulated anyways.


Fans voted on and chose THIS look for the Rams' interim uniform. It's a mess:

You would think it would be a honor for teams to nickname after Native American culture .. however if they find it offensive then so be it .. I would go totally away from it and never look back .. one day a young person will ask there grandfather why did all the teams with Native American themes change ... let them explain it .. next up is the Cleveland Indians , chiefs , Braves , Blackhawks , Yankees (slur), and all the other names people find objectionable.. itís time to move on .. at least I saw the redskins win all there super bowls!!
