HTTR lyrics can easily be rewritten to not use the word redskins.

I know very few people that defaulted to the original name, even smaller amount outside of WFT fans. I also don't understand the logic that this is Snyder's game plan. What does he have to gain from a handful of people still calling them the Redskins? It definitely does not add any merchandise revenue any more.

Come on let's be real - those singing in the stands will ignore any rewrites and go with the original.

Ditch the song as far as I'm concerned that died with the name. Time to move on.

Odd when this subject was broached (Usually due to something I was wearing or if I was at a place watching a game) just about everyone I've run across (mainly strangers to me) stated they still call them the Redskins (this included other team fans - especially those from the NFC East).

Not sure that is entirely accurate - as the name doesn't seem to have died. It may yet depending on what the team decides to settle on.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

The name is officially gone. People can still call them the Redskins, but that's not the name despite how much fuss anyone puts up.

Well there is no disputing that it is officially gone. But I don't think that makes it dead. It's dejure verus defacto at this point.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

If you want to truly re-brand, you can't hold on to things like the fight song. There needs to be a clean slate with a re-branding.

And that is the crux of the matter - does the team (ie Snyder) really want to re-brand? BTW What do they do when fans sing the fight song, wear/display Redskins gear etc.?

Well .. we changed it from "fight for old dixie" to "dc" but I half agree.
-------------------

I think finding something to go with "washington" is difficult. Just seems Washington Warriors is the only halfway decent alternative but it halfway sucks.

DC .. I think is more workable ... yet I cant think of anything cool for DC either. DC Defenders? is that some fringe sports team already?

Idk .. this name thing is so hard as nothing sounds or seems right.

Im just glad they have chosen to do nothing vs rushing a bad name. The red tails? red hogs? red wolves? fuck that

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Im still partial to Red Wolves, along with a howling noise on every first down. But if I have to come up with a totally new name it would be the Washington Wu-Tang. Because Wu-Tang is forever.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

And Im with Matty. Let it go. We already played a whole season without the name Redskins or the fight song. Why are we even still debating whether or not any of it is coming back?

We're not, We're debating if it ever left. (We agree officially it left, but unofficially .......????? Which goes into the debate on the new name - argument is WFT may be the choice because that would be a wink/nod to the Redskins name).

This, and this, and this again.
I loved the Redskins, thought it was malarky to make them change.
BUT, they did, and now we should to move forward. WFT is not moving forward, and it's not going back, it's just stuck in nothingness.
