Isn't part of the issue the fact that because the team doesn't seem to actually do much to honor and support Native communities, it can be perceived as flat out cultural appropriation ?
If it was a process and dialogue with Native communities couldn't it be a good tool to honor, raise awareness and fund projects that would benefit them ?

Maybe it's too late and there's kinda no way to make it up though.
To me it will be viewed as appropriation either way. The backlash in our society of a member of the wealthy in the United States "buying" the rights to name a team after a minority group would not stand. Even if there is an agreement between a tribal nation that agrees to it. You would see continued financial boycott from investors that would perceive this as exploitation. DC would still hold up a stadium deal. If that was to happen it should have happened already.

Ok.
Maybe I'm just hanging on to a ideal scenario where it could be possible to have it work for everybody, starting with the Natives... From the start I just liked the idea that Natives were represented and honored in the biggest sport of America... Heck anyway I don't have much say in it and I will get along with what ever happens.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Washington Generals ? who wouldn't want to be named after a team that never won a game and was made fools of on a regular basis ?

Not to mention the team would have to pay for the naming rights ?https://sports.yahoo.com/report-glob...233823854.html

Why would we want to keep honoring native Americans who have blown this thing up despite 90% of the native Americans not being offended by the name in the last poll I have seen ( 2018 ) ?

The Redskins have given millions to native American tribes.


Time to bow down to the liberal pressure ..

Maybe we could be the "Washington Woke "

I'm sure some we fans could find a suitable mascot..

Bingo.

They need to get as far away from any direct correlation to NA as possible or this issue will only continue to fester.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Agree with all saying to get away from any association with native Americans. Its a shame in my opinion but it is what it is. If they go with Presidents, Monuments, etc. I will be very disappointed.

Red Tails is really growing on me.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

I like Revolution or Renegades, and we can still use the R logos

Dear Mr punch it in, Please change your name as I find the word "punch" to be too violent.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Rivera wants something that honors the military.

Snyder wants a Native American theme.

I thought the RED TAILS was cool, honoring a famous Air Force unit in WWII. But no Native American ties to it.

I think WARRIORS or BRAVES is kind of generic AND already taken in other sports

I could go with MOHAWK or CHEYENNE because these were famous, warrior tribes. But no military ties , except the Cheyenne tribe fought the US Army in the 19th century!

I think it will be hard to come up with a name with a Native American theme AND a MILITARY or Veteran theme. One or the other.

Iíd either like RED TAILS or MOHAWKS (Eastern U.S. tribe).

Hogs is a terrible name.

I still say Washington Renegades should be strongly considered and use the Redskins ďRĒ logo.
Renegades reminds me of the USFL.

I hear you about sharing a name, but the Skins were the Boston Braves and shared their stadium with the Boston Braves baseball team. They switched to Redskins- much to the chagrin of the latter day sjws- because they moved to Fenway and shared with the Red Sox.

I doubt anyone would confuse us with the NBA Warriors.

So, RedHawks it is.

The question is will Dan listen to reason. I can see him saying "but we are honoring them" as his argument and not seeing the forest for the trees. Like I said this will be his defining legacy.

Screw it up and he will be known as the perpetual loser that defended racist and racist jr. monikers. Do this right and his legacy may very well become positive.
