When the name changes I dont expect it to be anything close to the word Redskins or have anything to do with Native Americans. It wont have Skin in it and I dont see it being Warrior or Braves either. That said I do think the name Pigskins is clever.
Agreed, but I think they could still go with Warriors while avoiding any NA iconography. Golden State (NBA) and my old high school did the same thing.
Not that it would happen, but I remember thinking a few years ago, right around when the movie 300 was released, that an Ancient Greek or Roman warrior would be pretty badass mascot and it would sort of make sense with the architecture of DC.



Then again, I guess people of Greek or Roman descent would eventually start complaining... shit

Re: Smithsonian Museum - yet another thread on team name

And the hits keep on coming. This thing really seems like its picking up steam in the media. This article's author lambasts the Redskins saying it is immoral about every way imaginable. If the team name does get changed, do I get credit for coming up with the name Washington Pigskins?

History alone should prompt Washington to change NFL mascot - ESPN

Re: Smithsonian Museum - yet another thread on team name

Jim vance did a segment on channel 4 about wanting the redskins to change their name. I read that dan synder has a patient on the name "warriors". They have been playing with different uniforms over the past few seasons as well. Keep the name redskins and go back to the uniforms from the 80's & 90's. Just my opinion

If you notice when you watch, Jim Vance doesnt say Redskins. He dances around it but doesnt say it. Sally Jenkins has an article about the name in today's Wash Post.

Clearly the pants are the problem behind this name thing. Oh the socks too, don't forget about the socks.

Saw the link on ESPN, was going to post it before I saw someone else posted it but are cowboys offended by Dallas? This is a question I have always pondered.

It will cost a couple of thousand if you don't have the right socks and wear them the right way.

I think that is absolutely the WORST idea that could ever happen. There is absolutely nothing WRONG with honoring Native Americans by having a football mascot that is an Indian. If the name, Redskins, is so wrong, then the team should ONLY change the name to another, "less offensive" Indian name to keep with tradition. You're talking about completely breaking off of the tradition of the football team. I would hope that Snyder has enough intestinal fortitude to put his foot down and say hey, I'm willing to compromise, but I am not completely trashing the team's identity.

I would be just fine with Warriors, Braves, or Seminoles; Keep the colors intact, keep the logo intact or switch back to the spear and feather with a bit of an updated look, and I could live with that. But I cannot live with The Washington Federals, The Wizards (Stupid, stupid name,) The Dragons, or the Stemps.

The team needs to keep its identity at least.
