Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Something else to consider since the nickname is being changed...could Snyder use this to get a new stadium venue. If Virginia wanted the team, deal could be made to change the name to the Virginia _________ if they outbid DC. Since ALL of this is just about money anyway, I'd drag this out if I were Snyder to get the best deal...especially with the minority owners also possibly wanting out, he may try to do anything to save his stake in the ownership.

Side note: will all of our old gear now be like wearing the confederate flag?

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Washington Redhawks also has no native connection, you can say the feathers on the R are from a Hawk. Other than that, they would have to wipe out the whole scheme in place and come up with something new ASAP...

If our logo is offensive then the Blackhawks has to go too. This is all so damn ridiculous.

I would think that somebody at the Redhawks Nest (fka Redskins Park) would have the eloquence and poise to go before the press and gently explain to the foaming at the mouth reporters that birds have ... <gasp!>... feathers.

We are jettisoning 75 years of history to appease the hysterical mobs. Might they let us keep a few feathers?

They have not said anything about a re-brand so I find that very interesting

When I hear that, I point out that the current logo was designed by a Native American at the behest of Native Americans. George Allen thought it a great idea.

That is one of the things that has bothered me about this from the start. People have had to fabricate reasons why it is offensive.

Probably too late right now for a full logo/uniform change for this season. Probably will have to go with a modified design for this year and next year unveil a new look. I like the idea of keeping the burgundy and gold, but all new logos.

The Braves aren't saying anything right now either, but it won't be long before the attention turns their way.

I've seen some Warriors logo's out there with the W but they were garbage. One looked like the U of W on the helmet , that's just plain to me
