While Nationals may be boring it has a history dating back to the 1870s as the name for Washington's baseball team.

I hope he's right, I do not like that name.

And hopefully it's not going to be the Washington Red Sentinels.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

I like Red Wolves and Sentinels. For me Sentinels is a nod to the Skins Glory days - and when our team beat the Cowboys - through the movie Replacements , and fits for DC and Washington. I really don't want Warriors or Red Tails.

But I am sure it will be Warriors

Yeah I really don't get the hype around Sentinels. Sounds awfully XFLish to me...

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Washington Hogs

It would be a nice tribute to Joe Bugel and throwback to the most successful years of the franchise. Marketability- Hogs are easy. We already have the Hogettes and other folks who dress up at games with pig noses. We can have pig races at tailgates. Adopt a hog mascot to run across the field for pregames. Hell bring a few more to the party and have a stampede. Food pork themes. Vegan pig. Cups/mugs that dual as pig noses when you raise your glasses. Stuffed animal pig toys. Oinking crowd noises.

Hail to the Pigskins
Hail Victory
Hogs on the Warpath
Fight for Ol' DC

Why does this work well as a football mascot? Hogs are agressive animals. Smart too. Always getting dirty and throwing their weight around. A tough mascot to exemplify a tough football team.

From a PR standpoint, the franchise could befriend PETA and throw money at animal welfare groups that focus on pig farms. Raise awareness about feral swine and invasive species.

I would honestly love the Hogs. But I don't think it's happening. Didn't receive much support online, and would be easy to joke on.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Hogs was a nickname for the OL which was awesome but it's not really a great name for the team.. I guess he could go with the Razorbacks logo but what other pig logo works?

Love your whole post except for giving money to those extremists at PETA. Find a legitimate partner, not one that has been caught throwing dogs and cats in dumpsters while preaching ethical treatment of animals...and throwing animal blood on women with fur coats. Donate to free range farms and prop up humane producers. Farmers who supply restaurants have been suffering greatly through the pandemic, they could use support.

The team would be served well, and Snyder, to turn the new name into an outreach opportunity.

Of course, in D.C., if you choose the "wrong" charity (politically) you'll get crap from the same people that just canceled your name.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Change the name to HOGS and slap this on our helmet...at least twice a year.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Sunny if you're suggesting we go get Joe Flacco...please don't.

I'm OK with replacing Tom Cruise and Matthew McConaughey with Keanu on our sideline though.
