Yup. You could swap our players with the dirty rotten cowboys tomorrow and once they put on the b and g they become my team. Granted this particular example would take some adjusting to, but I am rite with you. Take away that emblem, those colors, and that name and you take away everything.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

I think most people get hooked on their local team as a kid since they are close and easy to follow and that tie is difficult to cut because of the local connection.

If there is no local team it seems like kids gravitate to a team that is good at the time. I suspect a lot of non-DC people who are Skins fans grew up in the 80s when the Skins were a force and on tv a lot. IMO that is a much easier bond to break. I can see those fans going elsewhere since its not like the Skins are a perennial powerhouse that is easy to root for.

I didn't grow up in the DC area, but I grew up in the southern part of VA, where the 'skins were always on TV and that's still pretty much true today. And yes, it did help that I got to grow up during the 80's when the 'skins were contenders year in and year out, but that bond is definitely not easy for me to break today. I would have a very tough time seeing the name 'Redskins' changed to something completely different. If they changed the name to the Generals or the Federals, I'd almost feel like our team is being transformed into that team that always gets beat by the Harlem Globetrotters, lol!

I completely disagree. If you are a true fan of any team than there is a bond. If you can easily go root for another team than there was no bond.

True enough, if there was not a bond and you lived in another city, chances are you would already be routing for the other team.......

I agree. Even if the team changed its name, logo, and colors (gasp!), it would still be the only NFL team which I have not rooted AGAINST.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

Snyder should not change the name but I have a feeling the pressure is going to keep building up. If he does change the name I would want it go back to the Braves and keep the logo that we have. Have you seen the poll on espn? Oneida Nation meets with NFL leadership to seek Washington Redskins name, mascot change - ESPN

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

Washington Redsyns

Sounds like Redskins and Redsyn is an anagram of Snyder.

Problem solved.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

Synder should tell them I will change the name of the team when the state of Oklahoma changes it's name.
