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.
NFL Team Nicknames - National Football League Team Nicknames

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

Re: American Indians look to high court

I assumed he changed it from Braves to Redskins because it sounds more like Red Sox.

The fact that this filing was timed to the opening of the football season suggests to me that this is less about righting an injustice than it is about garnering publicity to help fund raising.

If I was was Dan I do it.....look at all the money people would spend in 2 different ways.

1) Buy up as much old Redskin memorabilia as possible!

2) People will buy the hell out of the new stuff!
Hmm, I take offense to the term NewYork Giants.

I mean it's not like there aren't tall people in other states? or are they trying to slander only the New Yorkers?

Just Kidding. but you need to stop with the whole DS should think about his pocket and change his name. We don't need anyone else outside of the DC area putting ideas in his head.

Probably the greatest victory of the PC crowd. Or worst, depending on how you look at it.

I concur with irish that one day, hopefully not in my lifetime, the nickname will be changed.

Must be nice to reply to my post on a closed thread.

I suppose there was no space left on "Name and logo"for my response.

What do you mean? It was closed? I had no idea. Honestly. I didn't even notice it was closed

But anyway, I disagree that he's not coach friendly. But don't feel like continuously rehashing old news. So I will bow out of the discussion

That's fine...don't do anything you don't want to.

However, I think it'd be interesting if a poll was started with that question. My contention is that there would be more 'nays' than 'yeas'.

Re: American Indians look to high court

What's really funny is that when I navigate into this thread, an ad comes up for Indian costumes. Sorry. RED Indian costumes.

You mean his name isn't really LDS - LilDannySnyder?
