Yeah and I'd be pretty willing to bet if there are changes, they're not going to be extreme like he's suggesting.

Wiping the slate completely clean on a multi-million dollar business? Not smart.

So what keeps you a fan, just being a local? What if they moved to another city and another team started up in DC? Who are you rooting for?
That's a good question, what does team mean? I think local has a lot to do with it but I also think who you grow up rooting for is also a big part of it.

If the Skins moved away and a new team moved in I'd start following the new team but I'd still pay attention to what the old Skins are doing.

I think fantasy football has already done this for a lot of people.

I agree, it seems strange that all of a sudden these people have a problem with the name.

I think this is all part of DS and the NFL's plan for changing the name. DS can fight the good fight for the fans while the NFL plays the heavy.

When i was about five years old my mother bought me and my brother to the mall for winter jackets. It was all the nfl teams. Those letterman jackets with the team patch on the front and the pleather sleeves. Remember those? Anyway i spun that clothes rack around and looked at everyone. I picked the redskins because i liked the colors and i loved that indian. (Native american - lol).

I'm a Skins fan because they're local and because they've always been a family team. At this point if they moved somewhere else I would still be a fan just because I've been a hardcore Redskins fan for the past 8 years. But for me its all about being local, hence why I'm an O's, Nats, Caps and Wizards fan. So a little part of me in terms of fandom would be gone for good.

There are some teams I like just because of the fan base and history though, such as the Raiders in football and the Red Sox in baseball.

But I'll always root for the home team first.

I moved from Rockville, Maryland to the West Coast 30 years ago, what keeps me a fan? The tradition, history, uniform, the team is like my family, identity. You take that away, you might as well root for no one.
