    I feel like Snyder will change it to something super derivative because he's a petty little b....

    Heard that the name "Red Wolves" is currently in a trademark dispute, just like they say the proposed Washington name is. Seems pretty possible that's going to be the name. Won't complain if that's the case, its the best out of all the alternatives I've heard the past few weeks.

    Red Tails would be so cool. So there is no way Snyder takes it. He'll probably pick something like "All Lives Matter"

    It looks really, cool, too. Don't have to change the color scheme.


    Warriors could have them use their old spear logo.

    Call them Washington FedEx. Sponsor names are all that matter to Snyder, anyway. What do the Washington fans want? That's where I would go as an owner; ask the season ticket holders.

    At first I was going to say Red Tails sounds stupid, but I actually like that logo so I could live with that one. I do think Red Wolves sounds more aggressive though. And I thought they said the team would be keeping the color scheme regardless of the name change?

    I saw an article on SI.com this morning that said the Redskins shouldn't change their name to Warriors because that name has racial connotations to it. My reaction was that someone should probably force that Golden State basketball team to change their name now, right?

    Warrior is not a slur. So no. Somebody on SI really said that? Golden State dropped all native imagery. It's now generic.

    I think Snyder will delay until it is too late to change for this season. He might even hope he can avoid changing for longer. He is a POS.

    Just stick Snyder's mug on the helmet and call the team the Washington Rednecks for a season until they figure it all out.

    I'd say the name will come in the next couple weeks. Fed Ex is pushing this and won't take Snyder saying it will be at end of season. Were in July so I suspect with reports that the team is having the name scrubbed off other places they will reveal new name and uniforms soon.

    It's funny what FedEx will push for. I mean, my job is still waiting for them to find a package they lost more than a decade ago.

    Someone at SI is also calling for the Texas Rangers to change their name as well, for what it's worth.

    That wouldn't surprise me. For Snyder, his refusal to change the name was, in my opinion, never about honoring the team's history, rather plain old fashioned stubbornness and hate of being told what to do with his franchise. This time, Snyder has no choice, it's only a question of when.

    Okay, Kansas City guy here...

    Are the Chiefs okay to keep the name? I’ve been presuming they are thanks to it being a title, and because the Hunt family has been trying to get ahead of anything by working with Native representatives, but some outside-of-KC perspective would be nice.

    I know the Native American imagery could be a problem. They have people attending games in Native American head dresses , banging war drums at times on sideline , the crowd also does tomahawk chops and a cheerleader rides a horse called war paint. So that could be a problem. As a long time Chiefs fan here who suffered through some terrible years on CBR , well..its nice to see a fan here as well. But yeah the team may have an issue coming up.
