Ok... maybe something gets lost in translation there because I really didn't think that would be perceived as a NA reference. A Warrior can be brave on the warpath without being a Native American, can't he ?

The thing is, I'm a fast learner and would happily learn a new fight song in a couple of hours... But I have no trust in Dan and his team to come up with a new fight song that rocks in a couple of weeks.
Because they haven't shown anything to earn that trust. And because the amount of work they'll have to do to rebrand everything on time for the start of the season is mind blowing.

I agree on your last point but apparently they've been working on this for a month already. Obviously they got some sort of indication ahead of time with everything going on since Floyd was murdered.

Saw that logo you were talking about and I'm not a fan of it but maybe because I just don't want a name change....- just my opinion

I think most of us don't want a name change. Might be a good time to drop Washington as well depending on where we are playing....

1. Braves because that is what their original nick name was and it is a general term Change logo to Spear Can keep uniform the it is now or go to Home - burgundy jersey and gold pants Away - Burgundy pants and white jerseys, or you could go with gold pants

2. Warriors - because it is a general term Change logo to Spear Can keep uniform the it is now or go to Home - burgundy jersey and gold pants Away - Burgundy pants and white jerseys, or you could go with gold pants

3. Mohawks - would have to talk to tribe chief and get their blessing. Set up a fund for them and give them royalties - Change logo logo to Spear. Can keep uniform the it is now or go to Home - burgundy jersey and gold pants Away - Burgundy pants and white jerseys, or you could go with gold pants. I don't see this happening because down the road there could be more protests.

4. Redhawks - Change logo to R. Can keep uniform the it is now or go to Home - burgundy jersey and gold pants Away - Burgundy pants and white jerseys, or you could go with gold pants

If we go in an entirely different direction then I think I like Renegades for a nick name. Uniform could change but could also keep it the way it is now.

Hey VT, great picks and I had not thought of "Mohawks". I like it but I know the protesters won't.

If we did Mohawks, I think the 60s feather helmet would be perfect since it's positioned like a mohawk hair style.

Just do it on a modern metallic helmet, maybe swap the red for gold, it would look great.

Personally, I'll always call them the Redskins and sing HTTR. I have a feeling you'll hear fans spontaneously singing it after TDs for years, in their own form of protest mixed with nostalgia.

My son said yesterday he'll never stop wearing his Redskins gear.



Heck, I still call the basketball team the Bullets because Wizards is such a stupid name, perhaps the worst team name in all of pro sports.

As we all should. If you have a problem with it, you should have left a long time ago.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

OPINION? Here are a few names I haven't heard before. (im sure I may be duplicating!)
None have to do with race at all, and all are US/DC or military honoring.
What do you think of these names?
Revolution
Liberty
Freedom
Justice (also in DC motto)
Constitution
Independence
Icons (like monuments on helmet)
Honor
Courage
Glory (like US flag)
Defense
Federals
Founders
Commanders
Troops
Veterans
Soldiers
Heros

Washington Troops?

Might as well call them Washington Humans

Washington Courage?

How about Washington Strength? Washington Honor?

No disrespect to you but literally all of these names sound weak AF.

I would not mind that name actually.

There's an independent league baseball team in PA named Revolution that we root for.

So wed have two teams we like with the same name.

So instead of 'Skins for Redskins, we'd be called the Moobs for short now?

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

What about Washington Redzone

This would work for a year, just slap an R or W on the helmet and go.
