Snyder already owns trademarks on Warriors I believe. Just in case.

We're not the Giants...I'd like to think we're more creative than that.

Re: American Indians look to high court

Give it up already. The team is named after an American Indian that was the coach of the team. Isn't there a limit to how many times you can take someone to court? I can't see the supreme court accepting this case either way.

If not, Snyder already has Washington Warrior merchandise ready to go.

Maybe our new logo will be the Washington Redskin Potatoes?

I doubt it since I dont know of any Irish people protesting the name and logo.

I have no idea what the Skins new name & logo could be but I am willing to bet they have something in the files that would be ready to go.

The team is not named after an American Indian coach of the team. In fact Charlie Casserly was just on WP Live on CSN saying the organization never really knew where the name came from.

Some Indian was at one of the first games against the Cowboys and as we kicked their a$$ he yeld out go Redskins and it caught on and before you knew it everyone was saying Hail to the Reskins. The rest is history.

Where do people come up with this stuff. Hail to the Redskins was written by GP Marshall's wife as a fight song because GP Marshall wanted Onward Christian Soldiers as the Skins fight song.

Washington Redskins The Boston Braves entered the NFL in 1932. The following year, they would play their games at Fenway Park in Boston and take the Redskins name. It is rumored that this name change was partially meant as a tribute to their coach at the time, Lone Star Dietz, an American Indian.

Not quite as solid as I hoped, but this is what I've always heard.
