Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

The Cleveland Indians will now be known as the "Guardians" Thoughts?

Not a fan. That's the way the world is going now though.

I will chill on the name as long as it is a winner. If the new name is synonymous with losing it won't matter what the name is.

Awful name. Guardians at the Gates of Hell would be cooler.

Perfect match to what? The colors, maybe, the city? No So many other opportunities to rep the city better than an animal that is not indigenous. With all the history in that city there are far better options.

Cleveland naming the team the Guardians is a name that was off the radar for them. The Spiders and Blues has been thrown around for the last year and they picked a name off the radar, my hope is that is what happens here.

Now that Cleveland took the name .. I kinda like the Washington Guardians ..

what about the Washington Commandos

Washington Ballers

Washington Fury

Washington ... capitals, nationals, defenders, senators and generals are all taken and those seem like the best options

Washington Reps

Washington Reapers

... so hard

I donít really care if it is symbolic of the city. Chicago Bears is pretty iconic no?
I just want it to sound cool, and i want to hear howling everytime we get a first down. I swear if they are the Washington monuments or senators im done. Lol.

What does Redwings have to do with Detroit? Nothing. Iconic though.

Exactly. And Redskins had nothing to do with the city, it was iconic because it was iconic. Sports teams use animals to represent the ferocity and the mentality of the sports team. Wolves is so natural to football, I just don't get the disdain and angst over it at all.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

I am sure I have said this before, but Wolves are natural enemies to Eagles, Cowboys and Giants. The images of opposing qbs pounced on by a pack of wolves is an amazing marketing image. A running back avoiding tackles easily transfers to the image of a wolf evading an enemy. So many stunning images.
Guardians brings up Guardians of the galaxy, Sentinels has some merit, but wolves hit every key concept of a football team on the field.

1. Redwings have the wheel spoke theme to their insignia

2. The first man brave enough to earn his redwings was from Detroit.
