  1. I thought it was a separate helmet from the regular burgundy helmet and the NFL had a rule about two helmets and that's why they stopped using it (could have sworn that was in an article I read). If it was just a sticker over the current helmet and the NFL was against it, then fine, I can't blame Danny for that. There's still plenty of other things that can be blamed on him.
  2. I was kind of hoping they would have brought back this helmet for a season with the whole logo/name thing up in the air. But once again Snyder has dashed any hope.
  3. Ok, so no wolf skins on Native Americans. Just back to regular red wolf logo.
  4. If they have to change the name but can keep a Native American logo, then what about this Red Wolves concept?
  5. I'm sure a few words could be changed and the song would still work (wouldn't be the first time the song changed). Hail to the Warriors/Red Spears would probably change the least. Hail to the Redtails, hail victory, brave men in aircrafts, fight for old DC.
  6. I don't want it to be Warriors (unless the other options considered by Dan and Ron are worse). The name itself isn't bad is just too synonymous with the basketball team for me (granted I live in the Bay Area and hear that name more than others). I have a similar problem going back to Braves, I associate that name with the baseball team. I'd like whatever the new name is to be something unique and distinctive while still intimidating and cool. I'd also like to avoid any political names (Monuments, Senators, etc) or anything that would force a color change (I assume any extremely patriotic name would require red, white, and blue unis). And lastly, having the new name start with an R would be nice. If we can't keep Redskins, at least keep HTTR.
  7. Ok, so looking into it a bit more, I think Red Wolves (or Redwolves) fits as a solution to honoring the military and Native Americans. Military connection: Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 84 (HSC-84) "Red Wolves" was a helicopter squadron of the United States Navy Reserve. Along with the "Firehawks" of HSC-85 , the “Red Wolves” were one of only two squadrons in the U.S. Navy dedicated to supporting Navy SEAL and SWCC Teams, and Combat Search & Rescue . Native ties: Wolves figure prominently in the mythology of nearly every Native American tribe. In most Native cultures, Wolf is considered a medicine being associated with courage, strength, loyalty, and success at hunting. Plus with Pepsi threatening to pull sponsorship, that leaves the door open for a new drink.
  8. According to Wikipedia, he did have Native American blood: Foxx was born John Elroy Sanford on December 9, 1922 in St. Louis, Missouri and raised in Chicago's South Side. His father, Fred Sanford, an electrician and auto mechanic from Hickman, Kentucky, left the family when Foxx was four years old. He was raised by his half-Seminole mother, Mary Hughes, from Ellisville, Mississippi, his grandmother and his minister.
  9. They want something paying tribute to Native Americans and the military: • AH-64 Apache attack helicopter • UH-60 Black Hawk utility helicopter • UH-72 Lakota utility helicopter • CH-47 Chinook heavy-lift transport helicopter • OH-58 Kiowa observation helicopter, which the Army is considering retiring them • OH-6 Cayuse observation helicopter • TH-67 Creek trainer helicopter—the Army may retire them, too • C-12 Huron transport aircraft • RU-21 Ute electronic intelligence aircraft, a variant of the C-12 • BGM-109 Tomahawk cruise missile • UH-1 Iroquois utility helicopter, retired in 2011 • H-34 Choctaw transport helicopter, left service in early 1970s • RU-8 Seminole utility aircraft, 1992 • H-21 Shawnee transport helicopter, 1967 • OV-1 Mohawk twin-engine observation aircraft, 1996 • T-41 Mescalero trainer aircraft, no longer in the Army but still flying for the Air Force
  10. Hail to the Redwolves. Hail victory. Hunt in a wolfpack. Bite for Old D.C. Redwolves take 2:
