    in efforts to not confuse with soccer, maybe they should be call American Football Team. Then again, that may be offensive to some as well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Same with me. I went to high school with a brother and sister that were NA or half NA, I forget. But they were redskins fans. I don't recall any controversy about the name back in the 80s, but I can't imagine they were offended. But hey, others are offended for them.

    How about "***" as an acronym for Washington Team Football?

    Hail to the? There goes their fight song. They’re going to have to sort out a lot of things in Washington. All they have left are their colors. You have to figure a few fans will bail on them. Football is never going to be the same in DC.

    Not keeping the same theme really makes things difficult for them. They could have gone back to the old 1969 circa logo with the spear on the helmet. Washington Renegades has a nice ring to it.

    Whether or not this is true, does it really matter? It's not like there aren't current self-identifiers out there that would be entirely unacceptable to use for a team name.

    Obviously people are still going to call them the Redskins because they have no name.

    I truly believe there will be large enough group of people that will still refer to them as the redskins even after they decide on a name just because they were the redskins for so long. Some will do it out of habit others will do it because they don't agree that the vocal minority should force them to change their name.

    ok? This goes back to making an issue out of a non-issue because the .00001% (I made this number up, but I'm probably not off by much) of the population complained about something. Maybe we can start naming names of people and groups using these words in a hateful matter and put a stop to that, but what progress is made by attacking the team name?

    An interesting logo would be of the nations capital with the letters DC on each side. Whatever logo and name they eventually go with their fans are going to hate it. It’s going to be like having a new team.

    No progress what so ever. The Redskins is a slur? My God I'm so offended! Ok. But the tomahawk chop at Braves games was also offensive? Why? The chant or song at Chiefs and Seminole games offensive too? Really? People are even offended at the cartoon Chief Wahoo of the Cleveland Indians. Talk about needing a life. It must be very difficult to live in a world where you're offended at just about anything.

    sorry for being a little confused, are you just added to my post or are you suggesting I'm offended?
