Default Washington Football Team

Lets have some fun and suggest new name for Washington's football team:

Was Redskins. 90% of Indians are supposedly not opposed to the name but change is coming. Can we keep Red...

Washington Redskins former name, native americans polled | wusa9.com


A University of California Berkeley study, released in February 2020, questioned more than 1,000 people who self-identified as Native American.

The results showed that 49% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that the name was offensive. That number jumped to 67% for those "frequently engaged in tribal cultural practices."

If we’re being sucked in by this madness then “Washington” must go too.

New name: abundance of options...

Woke Wussies
Budget Busters
Beltway Bandits
Pork Pirates
Capitol Donothings
Washington Wastrels
DC Dingbats
or just
Washington Reds (that would cover budget records, anger management issues, political philosophy of some pols, random affiliations with China and even save the red paint left over from former name)

All they had to do was change the mascot to a potato, no name change required!

hmmm, wondering if The Patriots will end up changing their name

some 'looney tune' with nothing else to do will eventually come forward stating that there is evidence that there were patriots that owned slaves and were harsh on their indentured servants...and the poor cupcake finds the word Patriots offensive.
Kraft won't fold like a deck of cards, but once he sees the increased apparel sales that "the team formerly known as the Redskins" are ringing up for gear with their new logo on it, he'll see the wisdom of appeasing the 'woke fans'

then the 49'er's will have to change their team name....hello they rode into land specifically designated as belonging to the Native Americans, killed many of them and stole all the gold that they could find

Cleveland Browns....now that's a team name that's certainly living on the edge

Tampa Bay Buccaneers ...well we all know that pirates enslaved people....that one's gonna end up in the trash heap

then there's the Kansas City Chiefs ...they can't hide much longer, might just as well start rebranding now

The owners will be pleased...look at all the new apparel they'll sell with the new team logo on them

Now this might work. Flip it around. The George Washingtons rather than the Washington....

Two things wrong with that "study"
UC Berkeley and "self identified"...................more BS!

I suggest they change to The Washington Generals. This was the name of the house team that played against the Harlem Globetrotters. The Generals never won a game. It fits.

Wink DC Football Team or Maryland Football Team!!

The name Washington will have to be removed as well as soon as they realize G. Washington was a slave owner! Gonna be a goner! I suggest all names should be changed to numbers,,,!!! Identify with the date they came into being or built.!! Buildings/house be numbers..... Streets letters!!!
