DS and the NFL will make a ton of money from this name change and that will be the the reason for the change not because they think the name is a slur. These kinds of releases are put out to make it look like DS is fighting the good fight to keep the Redskins name. In the end $ will win the day.

It will cost several million to change the name, they won't just be making a ton of money by changing it.

How would changing your brand that is already well marketed and established world wide for decades going to make you a ton of money?

There will be a minimal cost to change the name (mostly signage around the stadium and some logos, etc on the website but that will be more than offset by the millions of dollars worth of shirts, hats, and other swag that will be sold to the fans who will have to have the newest gear.

Needless to say you are losing the best rivalry in the NFL, anthem, band and fans.

How? They will still play the Cowboys, they will rewrite the song, and the fans while angry for awhile will still be fans.

irish I think you're really oversimplifying things here. And you're underestimating what it means to change the identity of an organization.

I dont think I am. If anything I think you are making this a bigger issue than it is. I lived in DC when the Bullets changed to Wizards and nothing changed. Same lousy team, same rivalries, same fans. If anything I think its easier for the team to maintain its identity since they are staying in Washington. I can see moving from Houston to Nashville creating an identity issue but going from Washington Redskins to Washington whatevers, not so much.

Yes but this is the equivelant of the los angeles lakers changing their brand, and not the bullets. While the Redskins may not be one of the more successful teams on the field, they are off of it.

Exactly!! The Bullets. The Redskins are no Bullets, never will.

Actually it would be roughly $20-25 million per the latest estimates. And the Redskins would have to incur all of that cost. They split merchandise revenue with the rest of the NFL teams. That revenue is I believe in the mid to high 30s. So it's not boat loads of money they'd making when you think about it

I think that might be true for people who live in DC and the surrounding areas.... but right or wrong, if you're an out of town Redskins fan and they completely change the identity of the organization, I don't know if you're 100% a shoe in to stick around after.

I think its going to be very critical what they change to.

Not that this would happen, but if they wen't from the Redskins to say the Kings or something and completely changed everything, I could see some people who don't live in the DMV area switching allegiances to maybe their local team or taking a step back from football all together. Not saying its right/wrong but I think that's very realistic.
