They can’t announce the new name as there is some legal holdup in getting the rights to it. RollingEyesSmiley5

Not sure if this link from News will work or not.

Great news.

Apparently Snyder wants a military-themed new name.

The top 5 contenders for the new name according to Newsweek are:
Redtails
Generals
Presidents
Lincolns
Veterans

Is it The Washington iPhones?




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

Perfection is the enemy of progress. -Winston Churchill

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I'm just hoping the trend towards ephemeral (is that the word?) team names like Dream, Liberty, Magic, Thunder, etc.. goes away. In hindsight, the Washington Bullets may take the cake for the worst name. Ouch.

How about calling the team The Americans? And keep the same logo.

that name and logo wouldn't work together..."American" comes from Amerigo Vespucci, the Italian explorer from the 15th century. Also the logo really needs to go.

They’re “retiring” the name, not “changing” it. Because to the bitter end, they won't acknowledge they bowed to outside pressure. Jackasses...

Love this tweet: "Let’s make it happen: #WashingtonFranklins, in honor of our greatest president and the inventor of electricity and freedom"

...and the eagle-eyed geniuses who just had to "correct" him.

The last three are WTF-worthy and isn't the second the name of the Harlem Globetrotters' opponent?

The Washington Lincolns? Why not the Washington Washingtons? RollingEyesSmiley5

That's easy - one group is on the field and the other is in the stands.

Keep the logo with "Americans"? I'm ok with that.

Put I so like the sound of "Red Tails"!

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

And to make sure it's not offensive to some people, the washers they are referring to are a piece of hardware.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser doesn't seem to want the team to be named "Washington"
anything unless they actually play in D.C. (& pay taxes).
Quote
Mayor Bowser -
"We want to change the name and change the location. "You've heard me
say that a number of times, that the Washington football team should be playing in
Washington."
NBC Sports
Washington Football Inc. (a Delaware Corp.); owners of the team and FedEx Field in
Landover, MD is headquartered in Ashburn, VA.

It's been long rumored that Snyder would build a stadium complex in Northern VA if
the Commonwealth offered the right "incentives", something D.C. doesn't seem to
be interested in doing for the old RFK Stadium site.

Yoinks! terrified smiley

Puts a whole new spin on the phrase "getting cut from the team."

May be considered insensitive to Jewish, Muslim, and some other players, though...
