Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

If they end up changing it to Redwolves I may not root for them lol.. No seriously that shit is corny as fuck.

Redhawks is my new favorite - The R with a feather or 2 could work
Warriors is my 2nd but only if they can keep the same logo
Redtails is Meh to me... 50/50

I understand how keeping a reference to the Natives could backfire (even though I think there could be a way to have it be a clear and efficient tribute), so I'll let that go, but man we're one of the few NFL teams to have a real kick ass fight song, I don't want to lose that !
The fight song has to go French.

Idk about you guys, but listening to "Hail to the Warriors" or "Hail to the Redtails" is not gonna have the same vibe to it. Time to retire the tune, and the name, and the logo.

I feel you but I think it's a part us refusing to let go of what we love as we know it.
But the song is great and I think keeping it would be a great way to start fresh while not throwing away the great history of this team.

Flush it all, name, song, etc. Get as far away as possible from any NA related themes.

That's why I'm thinking Redhawks because you can basically swipe that all out. With me not having any true ties to the DMV area, it really depends on how drastic they go with a re-brand... If they decide to clear all history of the Redskins and start over from scratch Idk if I'll be a fan still.. I'd just watch for the fun of it until I found a new team I like. Grew up in MS and FL before moving to Oklahoma so I could just root for the Saints or Bucs/ Miami I guess...
Have already had folks here say go with the Bills lol.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

“Redskins” regardless of the rebrand will be a part of the team now and in the future. Song...cloths and term Redskins isn’t going away. Once the org changes, that’s it. If you want to continue to cry and complain after that...then you should leave as a fan, that’s a you problem.

I'll always wear my skins gear , I don't care what anyone thinks. The Redskins were my first love when it came to sports and I've stuck with them for almost 30 years now.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

I say we change the name to Warriors, and replace the fight song with a karate montage every time we score a td.

Like this one:

That would be the most Dan Snyderesque decision ever. It is funny when Irsay took the Colts from Baltimore the NFL gave them the history, SB everything, but the former players stayed in Baltimore are part of the community and part of the Ravens. The Ravens even recognize the former Baltimore Colts teams and have Colts players in the ring of honor. Bottom line that history belongs to the fans let's hope Snyder doesn't fuck that up.

Just saying it doesn't fit without Redskins, why keep clinging to the past? Fresh start.

To me it depends on the new name.

"Hail to the Warriors/Fighters
Hail victory
Braves on the Warpath
Fight for ol'DC
Run or pass and score we want a lot more
Beat'em swamp'em touchdown let the points sore
Fight on fight on till you have won, sons of Washington"

Works perfectly fine IMO.

With Redtails it'd be different, but I'm not a fan of clinging on to the "Red" in the new name.

My fear with getting rid of everything is do you trust Dan and his team to come up with a new fight song that really rocks in a few weeks ? I don't.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

They ain't gonna let Braves on the Warpath fly Frenchie. And do we really want a new fight song with a bunch of tweaks to satisfy the pc crowd, or do we just want a new song to go with our new identity?
