Happy Memorial Day everyone, today should be an interesting day. 

Not really. All we are getting is official confirmation the Redskins name us being retired. 
 

Until they get the trademark issue settled, no new name announcement.

What does that have to do with the firing of Santos and the other guy?

 

 

As I said this is pure speculation but Santos could have been used by Bruce as the frontman for tampering or some other yet to be revealed act of corporate malfeasance.

 

If the reports that multiple draft picks may be lost are correct something serious up to and including circumventing the salary cap likely occurred.

That's only part, I'm more concerned to see what more comes out about the guys that were fired.

Just woke up, hoping that the news isnt embarrassing. Has a time for press conference been released???

I dont think sports are doing press conferences. Are they? I think anything would just be a zoom call or something.

Ben Standing on 980, and strongly hinted the santos and other guy firing has an ugly side to it and Rivera has too much on his plate to handle.  He leaned hard into Rivera having a lot of responsibility and needing help, never indicated in any way Ron wanted out.  
 

He clearly knows something, he said the name change announcement was a non-event to distract from the other news, but he kept going back to Santos.  
 

I came away thinking there is something messy non-football related with the FO, there was no indication Ron was going anywhere, quite the opposite actually.

It's probably based on the poll--well, actually two polls--that show about 90% of NAs polled aren't bothered by the name.

 

NA activists tried criticizing how the polls were conducted but their criticisms were not valid.

That was done locally though. Regardless of the way how it was conducted, you have to assume that you're going to get more support for it locally. If it's offensive it has to be a nationwide poll so you can get an accurate assessment.

 

ESPN has reported that Native American leaders have been sending letters to the commissioner asking it to be changed, that's enough for me to say its about time for it to go.

Well I did expect that it would end up that way with a re-org. It typically does when you want to put your "system" in place your way and dont have enough guys to do it yet. I would expect it to be this way for about a year until he can get the folks he wants in place to do things the way he wants them.

RedWolves (or Red Wolves) is awful. It sounds like, “Hey, what animal can we put after ‘Red’ that sounds cool?”...

 

 

My concern is that they feel pressured to rush out a new logo/uniform set, and it will look just that: rushed. If you’re going to change, say, yes, we’re going to change, but we’re taking the time to create a logo that will be another classic (this is all painful to write, as I love the name and current logo)...

So the day they announce the retiring of this historic name - a day full of varied emotions - it comes out that there's now something else, something dire, that's also going to be brought to light? 

 

Only the Redwolves, man.

That's all well and good, but when you have a screaming mob and pissed off sponsors, it needs to be expidited.
