The Official ES Redskins Name Change Thread---All Things Related to Changing the Team's Name Go Here

It's not a defeat.  It'll be back when the team gets good.  If the team gets good.

 

I've said it before, I'll say it again.  Two reasons why the name change debate got kicked up a few years ago:

 

1.  RG3 leading this team to the forefront of the NFL.  Most jersey sales and the year after his rookie season, most prime time games out of any NFL team.  All of a sudden the Redskins are a hot team, people take notice.  No one cares about this debate when the team is in last place with no marquee players on it.  I am willing to bet that if the Redskins had a generational talent that was one of the key faces of the NFL, this debate is still going on.  "....of the Redskins leads all NFL players in jersey sales.  But what does selling jerseys of a team that has what some deem a racist name say about the state of the NFL and what's tolerated?  Bob Ley reports."

 

2.  Dan Snyder doubling down and saying the name will never change.  

 

The team sucks, Snyder is out of the public eye pretty much all the time and doesn't give interviews.  

 

Sorry the argument only comes up when this team blows.  There was nothing this season about it.

The idea of marketing eating the box along with the cigarettes is interesting

She's the one who won't go to the High Schools who still use the name with majority NA student populations to argue her point. You'd think she could have spent the past few decades doing that. Maybe she tried and they told her she doesn't speak for them. I don't know.

 

and for the record. I'm in the "I don't care anymore" zone. Keep it. Change it. Whatever.

Im temporarily in that zone too. I’m incredibly angry at the organization. I don’t even know who we drafted. 

 

Well see how that changes when the season starts.

A lot of us get it. Nobody who wants to keep the name is doing it because they want to be racist.

 

Said it before. If they ever drop the name. I'd rather there be no new nickname. Just Washington. The Washington Football Club. I mean, I guess Warriors is ok. But I'd rather just have their number on their helmet and the same colors.

I'm here, too.  

 

And if they ever do decide to change it, I think they should put it in the hands of Native Americans to decide what the new name is.  Or if the Native Americans don't want to change it, that's fine, too.

seems that NBA teams are fed up with the term Owner and consider it offensive and demeaning

 

Thus the Redskins should be renamed the Washington Owners
