You're still going to have people **** about that. Unfortunately, claiming "offense" in this day and age is infallible.

Someone would find a reason to **** if they named it the Washington Pumpkins. You can never make everyone happy.

probably already mentioned...

DC Thunderbirds

NA/Military connections (interesting note about the swastika symbol used by NAs before became Nazi symbol.

 

The Thunderbirds

When World War II broke out, the US Army’s 45th Infantry had a problem: Their insignia was the swastika. And they were going to be deployed to Europe. Leaders thought that this might be in poor taste.

The actual tradition of the swastika, for this unit, was tied to pride in the many Native American serving in the unit and their location in Oklahoma. However, the formerly peaceful symbol had been rebranded to mean hatred and Naziism. 

They made a switch to the Thunderbirds. And the rest is history. The 45th went on to become one of the most decorated units in WWII, serving from the invasion of Italy to the discovery of the concentration camps.

Another name from that... The Washington 45th.

I think a good way to go would be the Washington:

 

1.) Looters

2.) Rioteers

3.) Covids

4.) Batmen

5.) Offenders

 

On a serious Note:

1.) Hogs

2.) Windtalkers (Navajo code talkers)

3.) Redtails

We could do much worse than the Thunderbirds.

 

Nice car too...

 

Gimmee a ‘57 T-Bird, a nice open minded apple bottom warming the passenger seat and a thousand miles of open road. 

 

Crank up the sound pedal to the metal and leave all your troubles behind.

Washington Guardians (would have maybe been ok, if not for the XFL)

Washington Reign (can still use #HTTR)

I am close to the point where if they don't keep team colors and logo then I am checking out.  Having said that, if they do go with entirely new color scheme and logo I hope it is designed by the same people who came up with the new Rams gear.  Will make my decision much easier!

If they start winning, you'll be back.

Yes, i do too, but it will never happen. Too many purists and crybabies and "it's not how things looked when I was 7 or in the 80s" so it's never going anywhere

 

Everybody wears black, though. It's just not special. It's corporate surrender

They could change the name to The Washington Maggots and I’d be jumping for joy if it meant getting rid of Snyder.

Prime is actually a cool name IMO. Won't ever happen and maybe most don't like it but sounds strong to me.

 

Edit: I think I like Washington Reign too. Or as others have pointed out, change it to DC, so DC Reign.

Prime has potential but the BIG news eclipsing everything else would be Bezos and his 85 billion ducats.

 

This Bezos thing is gaining steam all over the internets. Hasn’t reached probable status yet. I’d say somewhere between hopeful conjecture and very educated guess but certainly would be both a game and name changer.

 

One crossover possibility— Washington Prime season ticket holders get Amazon Prime free!

 

Or if you Register an account on the new ExtremePrime website you get a free one year digital subscription to the Washington Post.

Then don’t come back when we start winning

I am surprised red hogs isn't getting more love.   It keeps the red part, same number of syllables and can keep the HTTR fight song (replace braves with hogs) and it reflects the glory years of our franchise's history.  Something that has a direct connection to the franchise is much better than a generic term like warriors imo.  Red Hogs is also very unique.  I'm not aware of anyone else using that mascot.  The fact that red hogs are not found on North America doesn't bother me one bit.  

 

For those of you that don't like it, is it because you think it just sounds lame?  I'm just curious, bc it's far and away my favorite choice.  I feel all the other options are so detached from our history it will be like rooting for an expansion team, but this continues our traditions, while removing the potential criticism of keeping a NA mascot.
