That Frog Picture made me spit out my coffee. Love that you called them the "Maryland Frogs too".

Those Warriors uniforms are badass. That 2002 look was my favorite Skins' alternate ever.

Re: Redskins "Name Change" Volume 10000000

I'd prefer the team move to Virginia and away from the morals toilet of D.C. before changing the team nickname. I'm a Redskins fan.

Snyder is being dismissive because a.) he owns the team, b.) this false issue has been pushed for decades

I don't want the team to get bribed or blackmailed by politicians with a new stadium in exchange for throwing 80 years of tradition away. I'm glad Snyder is taking a stand for something he believes in and I'm glad he values our team's history and tradition enough to fight for it. He's not willing to sell his beliefs for a shiny new stadium and Super Bowl venue. I appreciate that of our owner.

Wish I could take credit for drawing the Kermit set, but I guess some kid did it. Found it on Google when I searched "Washington Warriors uniform" to see if any concepts with that military vets idea were done.


I'd be thrilled if we adopted that look now, without having to change our name.

Re: Redskins "Name Change" Volume 10000000

Im not sure why people keep recommending the Warriors as an alternative name. If we are changing from Redskins, why would we change to a name that the people against Redskins say is derogatory to Indians? The Indians fighting against Redskins are going to go after the name Warriors for being derogatory to Indians if they can get the name Redskins to fall. They have already given their view of the name Warriors and they feel it should not be allowed.

If they cave in and go that route, I would like them to use colors more like burgundy and yellow than garnet and gold, the spearhead looks too much like FSU as is.

But taking the Green Bay protestors at their word, they are offended at NAs being called "warriors". So that name should be a non-starter in reference to Indians, if the name has to be changed.

Washington Sentinels, or go Washington Warriors with a modern US Army motif would make more sense. Camo or standard drabber colors? Represent a demographic that isn't "offended" by the name, and appreciates us cheering for them.

Now Warriors is derogatory?

We need to just move to London and be the Sillynannies because it's seriously moving in that direction.

Re: Redskins "Name Change" Volume 10000000

Warriors is such a broad term.

If push came to shove I'd be willing to bet they would settle for that over Redskins.

They want all of the sports teams with anything pertaining to Indians to be changed. They are against Chiefs, Braves, Indians, Warriors, Seminoles, Blackhawks, Fighting Illini, etc. to be changed.

The NCAA already adopted that rule. Thats why Marquette changed from Warriors to Eagles and Stanford changed from Indians to Cardinals. The NCAA has a rule that if an Indian tribe ok's a name, then it can stay. Which is why Florida St. was allowed to keep Seminoles. Which prompted Suzan Harjo to say that the Seminole tribe in Florida that ok'd the name are a bunch of sell outs.

They look like us.

1968 Redskins


1968 Florida State





Check out their 1962 helmet...these protesters should be happy we're not using something like this!


They didn't copy our spear helmet until 1976.

Warriors is considered derogatory by some folks when used in conjunction with Native American regalia. It is seen as creating an unfortunate stereotype.

If we were the "Warriors" with a nuclear missile as an emblem, things would be different.

Agreed.
I believe that's what my old high school did way back when. The nickname has always been Warriors but they changed from an Native American to a Robin Hood-looking guy since the school name is Sherwood HS. I think they also use a knight sometimes. (ironically, European Americans couldn't care less about this, but whatever).

I believe the Golden State Warriors kind of did the same thing.
