75 Years????

So I was looking around, and on the Redskins site, they have the "75 Year Hats" for sale. If I recall, the "Washington Redskins" have not been around for 75 years, they have however been around for 70 years.

They weren't called the Washington Redskins till 1937, 1932 they were the Boston Braves, and then from 1933-1936 they were the Boston Redskins. So technically they were never the Washington Redskins before any of those dates.


So why exactly is it saying 75 years?

- EDIT -


I'm still going to get one, but I was just curious thats all.

I figure that, but my whole point is, we weren't the Washington Redskins till 1937.

Yes we were the Redskins in 1933-36, but that was the Boston Redskins, not Washington Redskins.

The name doesnt matter dude, they are talking about the franchise. That is how they do it in sports all across the board. Why do you think when they talk about 1 team's history during a game, name changes dont matter?

It really doesnt matter, even if you wanna be anal about it you are still wrong. It is the 75th year.

Well thanks for informing me on that. I don't know how sports doesn't, I might love the Redskins, but I really don't pay attention to the whole "Franchise" per say. I'm not smart enough to learn that shit, I never remember / comprehend anything.

Re: 75 Years????

How do they do the Ravens anniversaries?

From when they were the browns? What about the browns now?

Ravens would be from when they began as the Ravens...I think Cleveland did something that they could keep the history of the team. New Orleans was prepared to do the same if they lost the Saints after Katrina.

Re: 75 Years????

I wonder about the Colts since the moved to Indy. Both Balt and Indy eras were very productive, but the Balt era had more titles. What do they do there?

Re: 75 Years????

Actually, I remember watching a Ravens game a few years ago, and Johnny Unitas was at one of their halftime ceremonies as a player for the "Baltimore" franchise with a Ravens jacket on.

Shouldn't he be associated with the Indianapolis Colts?

I think they had a similar agreement like the one Cleveland had, so all Colts history, awards etc. would remain a part of Baltimore. In fact, I think Unitas had made a big fuss about it when the team moved to Indy and had said he refused to be associated with the Indianapolis Colts
