Would the Cowboys-Redskins rivalry still feel the same to you if the Redskins changed their name?

    I think it would feel permanently different, especially if the Washington team also changed their uniform as well.

    I don't think it would change anything. The only difference maker in our rivalry is if either or both teams are playoff contenders. And that is usually just the fans getting fired up. Not sure the rivalry means much to the current players any more.

    No, not at all. It's Cowboys/Redskins and it should remain that way.

    Is it blasphemy to not care about that rivalry? Because I just don't. I know they've had great classic games. I always hope Dallas beats them for the division stuff & all that but that's about it.

    I do think they will have to change their name.

    Of course it would feel different. But I'd still hate them more than any other team in sports. They'd still have the same idiot fans that are obsessed 24/7/365 with the Cowboys.

    I think Coach Landry wouldn't want a name change either

    You'd feel different if both teams played meaningful games against each other.

    Every game that the Redskins and Cowboys play are meaningful games. Just because it's not in your Superbowl fantasy does not mean that the game does not matter! They hate each other....except when the Cowboys release an old player, then the Redskins snatch them up.

    It's wouldn't be Cowboys and Indians anymore (assuming they didn't stick with a similar name).

    why is this even an issue? the only thing i would find insulting if i was a Native America is the fact that the Redskins are represented by such a crappy team and franchise.

    lol, spoken like someone who's never been to DC.

    But to answer the question, no, it won't matter. They will always be burgundy and gold and I will always hate the Washington football organization, no matter what they're called.

    None of that matters, though.

    They'll still be in burgundy and gold. Still owned by Snyder. Still will be the worst team in professional sports history.

    I couldn't care less if they were the Washington Marsupials. I'll hate 'em.

    Which means what?

    There are plenty of rivalries outside of Dallas and Washington, no Cowboys or Indians involved.
