No way. Redskins stay.
Whether or not they change or keep the name of the Redskins I'm a hard no on changing it to the Presidents and changing their jersey colors. Just call them the Redhawks or something and use the spear logo and uniform as a basis for the rebrand. Change the colors so it's more of the current color scheme, which is iconic, very clean, and looks terrific on TV. Or just keep the bottom uniforms, which are pretty much perfect, and put a spear or something else on the helmet.
The groupthink thing is a valid point. You don’t have these guys all hanging around each event, reaffirming, “yeah I love that kid too”.....etc.....
I think some big mess ups and big steals will happen.
Eliminate the Indian head from the helmet and tone down the Indian references would go a long way. I am a big fan of the Lombardi helmets with jus the R on the helmet.
Or at the extreme end, change the name to Warriors. Washington Warriors has a nice ring to it. It even works in Hail to the Redskins. And screw Golden State having an issue. NY Jets didn’t make a stink about the Winnipeg Jets coming back or Tennessee taking their old name in the Titans. NFL is king!
Expect this from the NHL and other leagues.
I’d be ok with Warriors and keeping the Indian head myself. Really make it about being a tribute instead of a mascot.
Maybe when Snyder goes....
I remember Warriors being the most logical option when the whole trade mark stuff was going on a few years back.
Warriors is "Wizards" level bad
I've always liked the "Federals" from the old USFL team
The Feds? Meh.....
you missed an assumption lol.....that there was a change.
Soon after Snyder bought the team I remember reading Snyder was going to purchase an AFL expansion team and he got the trademark to Washington Warriors. Then the AFL shut down and it didn’t happen and when it restarted Snyder didn’t go through with it. I liked the name idea then and it’s about the only thing I’d support if the name is changed.
Sports hernia eh? Where have I seen that before?
Yeah I was intrigued until I read that. We’ve seen how injuries like that affect players after and it isn’t good.
By this time next week Chase Young will be a Redskin.
My vote for name change is “Redshins”. It’s just changing a letter and you can keep the fight song etc. Same idea as “Red Sox”. It would sound weird for a year or two and then probably feel like nothing ever happened. Plus it’s not racist. A huge plus in my book.
That's a horrible idea... What is a red shin? Will our mascot be someone on crutches with a cast on their broken shin? I'd rather completely change the name altogether than name them something that doesn't make sense at all. That said don't care about the current name and don't want it changed.
Separate names with a comma.
