Why not just use Patomac Indigenous People? It has a certain flare to it.

PIP for short.

Since the traditional rival team is The Cowboys...

looking to history, the Washington team could be renamed The Sheepmen.

Other teams in our nation's capital, highlight the role of D.C., e.g Nationals or the Capitals.

What about naming them after something associated with D.C.?
The Cherry Blossoms
The Monuments
The Lobbyists
The Swamp Dwellers

Or they could be renamed the Senators or the Federals since those names appear to be available again.

Since they're not based in DC (Ashburn, VA) nor play there (Landover, MD)
I'll stick with my favorites...
Landover Loonies, Landover Losers, or Beltway Jams!

For years, I've offered to let them keep the name and draw a redskin potato as a mascot.

That might be why I made the suggestion, they are both losing teams.

Talk to my auto correct, it doesn't listen to me.

I like this, replaces bald-faced racism with respect and honor. But will it pass muster with the Cultural Appropriation Police?

Cowboys is a racist in nature, in the vein of Redskins, Indians, etc..

It should be the Dallas Cowhands.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

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

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

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

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

The Washington Potato Skins fairly rolls off the tongue, and could be the team's Official Snack, available at the concession or a vendor near you.

Naming teams after animal carnivores (Seahawks, Raptors, Panthers, Wolves, etc.) associates those animals with intentional, excessive aggression. This promotes a negative image of organisms which do not hunt for sport but only for subsistence, which are only aggressive against non-prey when they are defending themselves. (This is tongue in cheek, but there's a kernel of truth here.)

Cleveland Indians are exploring a name change as well.

While it seems troublesome at first glance, some mascots have a deeper background. An example would be the FSU Seminoles. The school works closely with the Seminole Indian Tribe to be accurate and honorable in its presentation. When the NCAA came down on racist names, FSU and several other schools were exempted due to their relationship and approval of Various Native American Tribes.

Last I heard, plan is to call the new state "Douglass Commonwealth"
