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.
exactly!!!

Warriors is so blah and generic to me. I say let's go with something that has a little more originality.

I think if they go with it, it's just a cop out to change the name asap and run with it.. I would get new gear of course but I agree I'd like something nobody else has.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Another way to look at it that sucks is , what if we have a shitty season? The newly named Washington franchise starts its new beginning with a 4-12 record... Not the fresh start we would hope for

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Look,first of all,I love the team as much as anyone,but let's get away from anything Native -American as far as a new name goes-now as far as names go should be something that identifies with the city-Monuments-Federals[yes I know about the old USFL team]but that was a whole different time and league-Express-Archives...well just some ideas,I''ll be following this as I'm sure everyone else will...I just hope they don't name em anything stupid sounding.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

I'd bet on Warriors as the name that is chosen but I like the name Heroes. I hope the team keeps the current colors so I can still call them the Burgundy and Gold.

I thought calling anyone a hero was off limits after 911

That's why I think the Redhawks option is probably the best.

We can pretty much keep all our traditions- colors, the (tweaked) fight song, and our logo, albeit an earlier one.

We completely get away from the Native American controversy.

And we need not bother with adopting something disingenuous or USFL-sounding.

HTTR!

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Washington Warriors is lame. What the fuck is a Warrior? That represents absolutely nothing and everything at the same time. So bland on top of being so unoriginal. There are thousands of words to choose from that aren't already being used.

The more I hear Redhawks or Redtails the more I dislike either of them too.

I'm just preparing myself to be disappointed and have a name that rather instead of actually liking, I'll just have to get used to.

Pick any name, besides Warriors, that doesn't have the word red in it. Get a fresh new name.

Get rid of Red in the name, just sounds forced.

Worked for Miami University and St Johns University.

The only thing that has kept me engaged during L'Regime Snyder has been the history and traditions.

We can keep those. But if we switch to something radically different, those go out the window and there is little incentive to stick around.

Of course, that is just me. Obviously other opinions are equally as valid.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

I haven't posted here for years but I was curious to see what you guys think.

I really think they need to retain the B&G at all costs. We may be forced to change our name, but we have almost 90 years of tradition that doesn't need to be flushed down the toilet due to politics.

My preferences:


1. Warriors - as mentioned, Snyder has the rights to it and may have had this plan in his back pocket the entire time, knowing it would eventually happen.

We could keep the uniforms or change to the 70th Anniversary spear set and still have one of the better looks in the NFL. NO BLACK JERSEYS. Black for black's sake is never good. I prefer tradition over trends.



2. Braves - go back to our original name and it would probably have the least impact in terms of feeling like we're losing our identity.

If we go with that name, I'd love to see the leather helmet throwbacks become our primary uniform.



3. Redhawks - I wasn't a fan of it until I saw the concept that skinsfaninok posted above.

The feathered "R" logo is fantastic, but I might prefer using the Gibbs' "R" logo in it.



4. Redtails - Solid identity with some significant meaning and local roots too as 3 of the 5 Tuskegee airmen were from the D.C. area. My only hesitation is if the current racial situation in the country is the suggestion...these men were true heroes that deserve honor, not a consolation prize or being awarded it because of the color of their skin. They do not need reparation payments, they've earned all of the respect in the world based on their heroic acts. That's above politics.

I saw a concept online based on the leather helmet set with some red airplane striping added to the helmet and aviation logos on the pants.



5. Renegades - we can keep the color scheme and most logos, probably not the Indian head since we'd then be calling Native Americans violent.

70th Spear uniform!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Also, Nike pulling our merchandise but not the Super Bowl champ Chiefs is really hypocritical. They also get heavily invested in racial politics with Kaepernick yet take this giant stand against us? And yes, there's the Chinese child labor too...

It's sad that Dan is really being blackmailed into this. He's defended the team and its tradition forever, even won in the Supreme Court when challenged, but the political powers have found a way to force him into it by making it impossible to financially afford to keep it. The D.C. mayor, FedEx and Nike's moves are more pressure than he can withstand.

After this happens, no one will be happier for it. The culture cancel movement will move onto the next target. I would not be surprised if someday the New England Patriots are a target...we're seeing in this nation how many people are offended by the concept of Patriotism, our flag, our monuments, our history, our simple founding as a nation.

Then who? The Vikings are practicing "cultural appropriation". The Cowboys, Browns and Bills named after white men so that's "white privilege". The Giants are fat shaming. The Packers can be interpreted many ways. The 49ers symbolize corporate greed and wrecking the environment, as do the Steelers. No profiting off of endangered species! Raiders and Buccaneers promote violence. Saints are promoting religion and the Fleur de Lis was used to brand runaway slaves.


Where will it stop?

I tend to agree. That's another reason I think Redtails and Redhawks gained so much steam...some people want to hold onto the "Red".

I'd prefer to keep the color scheme but go with Warriors or Braves.
