It is not a matter of where or if the name changes but when as that could be hardly very slim to not ever!

- Keep the same logo (no one has argued those are racist).
- Fight song still works.
- Respectfully honors native-Americans (since that is what most people argue the team name does)

There is no way they keep the logo, it keeps them open for more protests. The best that can be hoped for is that they keep the colors and I'm not sure even that will happen.

I think that's the best solution. Change the logo and it should work. And I can keep all my gear...

I am now convinced the name change and new stadium go hand-in-hand. Snyder won't get a new stadium unless he changes the name. He won't change the name unless he gets a new stadium.

Re: Skins getting heat again over name issue

I watch sports to get away from the daily grind of politics.. Iím really close to closing the door on all pro sports ... think about whatís going on .. the true history of this country ( bad and good) is being erased .. the great Super Bowl redskin teams we all loved could be gone .. if the name is so bad now why would any of us refer to the team agian with any pride ? If the name redskins is truly rascist then everyone of us could be labeled that also.. should I feel bad for ever pulling for this team ?? ... Iím confused .. I try and love everyone and respect everyone.. I donít even think about race .. My view is there is only two types of people .. the good and the bad .

The Burgundy and Gold. It's a name the team is often called. Who are we gonna offend with that, the color blue?

I think is is garishly horrible. On the positive side, they could save on expenses by playing night games without turning on the lights.

The gold as a primary color doesn't work for me either

Remove the feather from the spear helmet and call them the Lancers.

I think if the pants were the same color as the helmet it would be a lot better. That's a lot of gold.

Re: Skins getting heat again over name issue

We should take down ALL historical statues and replace them with unicorn, ice cream cone, and tooth fairy statues.

We can all never have our feelings hurt again and live in fantasy land.

We definitely need to change our team name. I'm thinking Washington Willows is nice and peaceful. Plop a tree on that helmet and call it a uniform.

Re: Skins getting heat again over name issue

I never really understood the idea of honoring racist generals who were on the wrong side of history. It's like the ultimate participation trophy.
