i'd actually take it as maybe a chance for a positive reboot with a new staff, new [players,  and a new identity for the franchise other than "perennial incompetent loser"

Same old owner.

About time. Can not wait to find out my new team name. Hope the fight song still works.


This is why I’ve been a huge fan of Washington Redtails:

 

1) it lets the team keep the fight song (with some changes) and colors

2) there’s literally no pro sports franchise that honors African American history in the us

3) DC plays a special part in African American history (it was the southernmost safe haven for slaves seeking freedom, so much that DC ceded Arlington County back to Virginia in the 1840s to force runaway slaves to have to cross the Potomac as one last obstacle to safety)

 

I know it’s a bit wonky because the Red Tails themselves had no affiliation with the DC metro area, but it’s magnitudes better than naming a team the Utah Jazz.

That's not nice to give people false hope like that.

Most people that are offended by it are not even Native Americans. 

It's the follow the leader type of mentality that bothers me more than anything else.

We"ve taken this PC thing a little too far.

Pathetic.

picture of uniforms

 

Serious reply here:

 

The helmet logo is worse obviously

The grey uniform looks like ass.

We don't need a name change to make uniform changes, teams do that constantly anyway.

Well, probably a game changer for me.

 

I’m not a DC native and Football has become more and more unattractive over the past decade.

 

I have defended the notion that most Native Americans do not find offensive but certainly not worth the fight.

 

The team itself, which like you’re not does include the name, held such a deep part of my life. There are times for goodbye.

Liberalism is a mental disorder. Anyone who is supportive of this should be ashamed of themselves.

 

I don't support this. But it's not a hill I'm willing to die on.

I just hope we keep the colors, history, color scheme, etc.

 

A full rebrand with a new logo and colors would be hard to get behind, especially those of us not living in the DMV
