I think this is best case scenario honestly. At this point you offer to mediate the discussion and help them find a conclusion that they can agree on. That’s the only way to look like you care and get a chance to keep the name. Just reserve yourself to the possibility that it’s not up to you. 
 

my other question is what happens if we force a name change and they Snyder stops supporting native Americans all together? That I would assume would be a net loss for them at first. And he would look like a dick. 

I agree, and I would like to get them involved in the process. Snyder said they want to honor the Natives so I guess a new name wouldn't be something that has absolutely nothing to do with them. So I think it absolutely makes sense to get them involved, but not necessarily with the ultimate goal to keeping the name. Should be an open discussion with an open end.

The name is going to change since corporate sponsors have already pulled money out of the franchise or are on the verge of doing so. 
 

Some of you still in denial are unfortunately going to learn a brutal, cold truth about living in a capitalist country. Money talks and no one cares about your feelings.

But they are changing the name because it’s hurting people’s feelings.

I would be very interested in seeing what would come from something like this. I think it would be kinda cool too honestly.

Some of the ideas I've thought of if Snyder decided it was time to do so in no way am I advocating this should happen now: (In no particular order)

Washington Red Hawks
Washington Red Rivals
Washington Nation
Washington Trumpcards (hey adding a new casino right? why not get on the ground floor and embrace it?)  (Could also subtley thumb the eye of the people pushing this as some will shorten it to the Washington Trumps
Washington Forever (OR DC Forever)
Washintgon Hail  
Washington Triumph

(My favorites here are Washintgon Nation, Washington DC Forever, Washington Triumph, btw it would be fun to tie this to DC getting state hood if that were to actually happen)

I am not a fan of a single one of those.  HOWEVER, if they change the name to Triumph & Wu-Tang Clan’s song Triumph becomes the fight song I might be on board 🤣

None of it will come from Wise, Florio, Feinstein etc.

 

It will come from the literal billionaire who has more than quadrupled his wealth on the back of the franchise with the name. Feels right.

kind of like the whole Redskin potato thing but that obviously would never work because we can't have a potato for a logo, but a Red skinned animal seems ok, no?

That's a great question.  I still don't think it would be enough given our current societal climate.  People will want the name gone entirely bc it is viewed as a racist term aimed at native Americans, and has been in existence for our franchise for 80+ years.  I don't think keeping the name but declaring we are now attributing to something different would have support. 

 

I'm glad we both agree our team name should not be based on potatoes, although chips and french fries are great haha

If jokes are permitted.

 

I think they should change the name to the Skins and at the same time change Dallas' name to the Shirts. After all, we have to keep the mascot rivalry going, don't we?

Again, if we are gonna have this discussion, when we know we really shouldn’t.....y’all gotta try not to be offended by people challenging your opinion and adhere to the rules of not calling each other names. That’s the least you can do folks. Just be adults and share your opinion. Understand we won’t all agree and that’s fine.

We will be at a terrible disadvantage during those cold December games.

If they want a military theme...while still honoring the Native American community...could they use Apache or will that be blasted as well?

 

Apache tribe and Apache helicopter?

If any team beats us every player gets audited and their owner's foreign shell corporations get taxed.

There was always a plan B regarding the name I’m sure. Love or hate him Dan is a business guy and protecting his money is Job#1. They Will act like it was process but I’ll bet it’s already done right down to the artwork.
