Typical hog wash that our society as decided out of the blue that the past is bad no more statues of the founding  fathers, and if it is not presented in a positive past then we should destroy th

Washington Monuments.......just imagine the logo!  Enough to make a Clinton blush......

I just call them Washington, as I would say Green Bay or New England. I don't say the Green Bay team. I just say Green Bay.

I remember reading they may just stick with the name they have now. We'll see.

I hope they do.   This is what I wanted when they first caved to the pressure.  

Could they get away with:

The Skins

The Pigskins

In some ways it has grown on me.  Sounds “old-timey.”

”The Washington Football Team.”  

It puts the emphasis on the home location.... Washington.  

There’s actually probably a unique marketing angle that could be inventive, progressive, and refreshing........: thenagain, its Dan Snyder.

I actually like it to.

 

 

I do know they will sell a lot of extra merch.

 

Sell remaining on old merch(cause some will want to buy it for nostalgia)

Sell The Football Team merch(season or 2)

Then change to new name and sell that merch, everyone will want to get the Football Team Merch then for nostalgia.

 

Major money making going on.

Honestly in Europe most teams don't have mascots or anything like that.  They just call themselves things like Chelsea FC.  (FC standing for Football Club)

 

I think if Washington just started calling themselves "Washington FC or Washington AFC (for American Football Club) it would be cool.  I am guessing they will come up with a team name though.

It’s gonna be strange & uncomfortable if and when Washington brings in some of it’s Hall of Fame players or other historical greats like Joe Theismann, Doug Williams or John Riggins for accolades, but expects them to embrace the new team name or deny the one they achieved their fame under.

I think that the false news channel like "CNN and others have created  a must comply with leftest democrat's  view 

on how to comply on peoples right to disagree. They want you to feel that you  have no opinion on the matter. and if you don't agree then you are a bigot

Only a long term bigot would insist on keeping the racist name. If he owned a baseball a team in the old Negro Baseball League what would his team be named?

Tell that to the American Indian Nation.

Typical hog wash that our society as decided out of the blue that the past is bad no more statues of the founding 

fathers, and if it is not presented in a positive past then we should destroy that past history part. because it's offensive 

I call it selective history to heaven forbid not embarrass anyone about what the past history was.  What's next ?

there was no Roman Empire or Spanish inquisition, or  American revaluation ,  or world war 1 or 2?, because we ended world war 2  by the atomic bomb? Or they were not Hebrews in Mosses time that were slaves' in bondage.  Every race, even the  so called White race  were at some point slaves or in bondage to the society at some point in history . so my point every Race , religious belief, etc.,,, were in bondage at some point in time. So do we just wipe all of this out of history? or do we learn from our mistakes of the past  and move on.

King Colt , I resent  your bigot implications because number one you don't know me , and I doubt very much you are of American heritage.  So unless you speak for the  American Indians, that by the way have a much better case for why they are not the  minority , since this is their land  then all races should just give them back that what were there's' I would not have any trouble in complying to them Would You?

Pretty sure he was talking about the original Redskins owner and not you.

 

Either way lets clean it up in here. Not even to sure the thread needs to stay open.? It just invites back and forth that is toeing the line.

I don't need a weatherman to tell me it's raining. I don't speak for any race rather against racism.

I think they had a few names in mind I do wonder what they end up being 2021.

 

 

Part of me thinks that Snyder just might be playing a waiting game before he goes back to Redskins.  How long does this really take to find a name? 

 

NBA commissioner said that they will not have any of that social messaging in their unis and games next season.  Sort of addressed the issue when the iron was hot, but now going back to simply playing basketball.

 

I don't think Snyder will do that, but I would not be entirely surprised if it happened.

    • I get #1 and I especially #4. #4 worries me. I think #2 & especially #3 would be greatly reduced with us, just like with Phil.
    • I wouldn't say trading for Stafford could happen "easily"  They aren't trading him unless they get someone they feel is a better option.   If they can't,   they won't trade him
    • Good post on Hilton: One critical element, regarding Hilton is; who’s going to be throwing to him? People say he’s declining and to some degree that’s true but he really hasn’t had a “gunslinger” throwing to him since Luck and I believe that effects people’s perception of him.       I like Mack but he may warrant better money elsewhere. If Taylor went down, it would be nice to plug him in and having running backs with “fresh legs” at the end of the year, would be key in making a postseason run.      Hooker is expendable. I hope they find a way to keep Rhodes. (It’s going to be interesting to see how the secondary shakes out).     I think they’ll keep Autry and/or Houston but that could change if they think Lewis could step in.      I disagree that MAC is a “one note player”. He’s an above average blocker, a good route runner and good at 50/50 balls. He was hampered by injury, so he looks lumbering in his receiving game but I don’t think we’ve seen the best of his game yet.      
    • I believe Houston was on the feild more than Autry too. Never mind Autry was played a bit more.
    • TY Hilton - If he's not willing to take a paycut down to WR2 money then I'm fine with moving on from him.  Loved what he's done for the org but he's not a WR1 anymore.  I'd rather pay him WR2 money and sign a True #1.   Marlon Mack - His spot at this point is taken.  I'm fine with moving forward with JT, Hines, and possibly drafting a young bruiser or signing a vet for cheap.  If he's willing to come back on a prove it deal then fine, otherwise he can test the market.   Justin Houston - Resign him.  2yr deal with an option.  Coming off one of his best years.  He was definitely our best pass rusher.  Health isn't a concern but age is.  I'd say bring him back.  Not too expensive however.  That may prove to be a problem if he's looking to cash out before retirement.   Denico Autry - I want to bring him back, but if another team try to force us to overpay for him then we should let him walk.   Xavier Rhodes - I was impressed by Rhodes this year.  Bring him back, but not for #1 CB money.  I don't think he's there.  #2 CB money for him and I'm ok.   Anthony Walker Jr. - He can walk.  We need an upgrade.  I'd be fine with drafting his replacement.  But if we can't find anyone I'm down to bring him back.   Malik Hooker - Same as Marlon Mack.  JB has taken his spot.  Either come back on a prove it deal or he can walk also.   Jacoby Brissett - We need to wait and see how our QB search plays out.  If we are able to grab Wentz, Staff, or Wats, then I'm ok with Eason being the backup.  But if we fail on the 3 mentioned and Ballard isn't sold on Eason, I'm fine with JB being a stopgap.  He'll play good enough to keep us competitive but not so good where we have trash draft capital.   Zach Pascal - IDK about this one.  We need to upgrade at WR but due injuries depth is a concern.  50/50.   Mo-Alie Cox - Resign ASAP!  I think MAC is a diamond in the rough.  I honestly think he can be the next Antonio Gates.  Not sure why we don't utilize him more.
