Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

I almost don't care about the name, just as long as it stops commentators saying the whole name just to emphasise its a temporary name/crap. It's well beyond tiresome now.

Commanders.

Start getting used to it now and when it's formally announced you won't be surprised.

WTF is a commander? Lame as name.

The Navy always comes to mind when I hear the word Commander.

It isn't in my top group of choices, but I'd also be OK with it.

And all military services have Commanders at all levels. They are ultimately responsible for the accomplishment of their respective unit's assigned tasks and missions. Could be as low on the totem pole as a Tank Commander, to as high as the "Commander in Chief".

It's a dumb name for a football team though IMO.

Sounds like an arena/USFL team name, dumb. Might as well name them the generals. Maybe the dead Kennedy’s.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Once the newness wears off, it will be just like any other name. In a vacuum plenty of other names aren't that great when you think about it.

Why is RED done and why do you accept that? That is our history and can continue with some simple tweaks.


Although I loathe them, the Cowboy star is actually very, very cool. Say what you will, but Dallas' images, from the uniforms to the cheerleaders, have always been impressive.

The current W fits in perfectly with the sterile landscape that is FedEx Field. Keep WFT and put a nice, traditional block W in there.

Funny you mention Green Bay, but the aforementioned Lombardi R was designed with the G in mind as obviously Vince had been there.

What's funny is how commentators actually keep saying Redskins by default.

I heard Collingsworth and Michaels do it and then have a laugh. Aikman did it on Thanksgiving until Buck corrected him. And then this past Monday night one of those guys did it.

Force of habit.

Better than when Phil Simms made a bid deal of how he was never going to use it and then proceeded to use it multiple times when he covered the <gasp!> Redskins.

Makes me think this was manufactured outrage from the get go.

Levy said Redskins at the end of the game on MNF.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

It's like saying San Diego with the Chargers. In time that becomes less of an issue.

Redskins is gone. Sucks but that's life.
