I love that Snyder said in an interview years ago that he'd NEVER change the name. Even better is that he'll likely have to pay some Trademark Troll big bucks to buy a name. I think that it will be Warriors since he was leaning toward that for a possible alternate football league team.

So dumb. The losers complaining about this aren't even football fans. They casually ignore polls showing that the overwhelming majority of native americans find no offense in the name.

Politics has ruined sports. Sports was always a uniting factor no matter what your race or creed in American society was. Now it's a political circus.

Iím a huge sports guy, or at least was. Played in college as well.

But Iíve found during this whole time that I havenít really missed sports. Itís nice to have time back and not worry about making the game. About the only sport Iíve kept regularly watching is IndyCar.

I think a lot of leagues will one day regret deciding to go political with sports.

So. "The Washington Football Team"?

Better hope they don't play the Seahawks in the Super Bowl-- then you'll have "The Washington Football Team" vs. "The Other Washington Football Team"-- it could be confusing.

Here's a sneak picture of their new helmet logo:

They moved to DC from Boston. They were the Boston Braves. Don't remember when they switched to Redskins. There were definitely Native American populations in the DC area.

I, for one, just hope they keep it the "Washington Football Team." I think it's fantastic, and the memes coming out are hilarious!

NFC East:

Giants
Cowboys
Football Team
Eagles

They were only the Braves for one season. George Marshall changed the name as there was already another team named the Braves (baseball?) and he didn't want people confusing his team with any other teams. Then head coach Lone Starr Dietz supposedly chose 'Redskins' as the name. I'm going off of memory but I believe that's more or less the story behind 'Redskins'.
