The Washington (Racial Slur) football will have a new name

[www.espn.com]

The Washington _____ will officially announce Monday morning that they will be changing their nickname, though no new name will be revealed just yet, a source confirmed Sunday night.

It had been widely expected that Washington would change its name, and one source said Saturday night that an announcement of a new name would come soon.

The franchise said on July 3 that it would undergo a thorough review of its 87-year-old name that some viewed as offensive. By that point, multiple sources said, team owner Dan Snyder already was engaged in talks with the league about a possible new name. Multiple sources said the name would be changing, but there was nothing official from the team.

Snyder had, for years, resisted any consideration to change the name -- telling USA Today in 2013 to "put it in all caps" that he would never make such a move. Some who have worked for Snyder said they believed he would rather sell the team than use a new name. While it's uncertain what the next name will be, it is one a source close to the situation said Snyder was excited about.

Let Snyder be the one to announce his own personal choice of a new name The Washington Savages.

Were it not for James Dolan the owner of the Knicks & Madison Square Garden, Snyder would be the least accomplished tone deaf owner in all of professional sport.

Today's announcement is that the name will change, not what the name will be. The new name will not be announced until trademark issues have been resolved. All that is known is that it will supposedly honor both Native American's and the military.

July 2: FedEx letter
July 3: We'll do a thorough review
July 4: We (owner+coach) have a new name
July 5-present: Trademark dispute

It's nice to see they all took this seriously.

I sent their front office a quick sketch of a redskin (potato) in a helmet, running with a football. I explained that it'd mean they wouldn't have to change the name.

If that's their decision, I'm telling everyone it was my idea.

I think they should create an online poll and let the Internetizens pick the new name.

My prediction of the result is: Footbally McBallface.

Yes, I agree. That does sound more likely.

Well that Onion Article will finally no longer be accurate!

Redskins’ @#$%& Owner Refuses To Change Team’s Offensive Name
WASHINGTON—Denying widespread claims that the franchise is being offensive or disrespectful, the Washington Redskins’ @#$%& owner announced Monday that he remains steadfast in his refusal to change the team’s derogatory name. “The Redskins represent 81 years of great history and tradition, and it’s a source of pride for our fans,” said the hook-nosed @#$%&, stressing that the team’s insulting moniker is “absolutely not a racial slur by any means.” “‘Washington Redskins’ is much more than just a name. It stands for strength, courage, and respect—the very values that are so intrinsic to Native American culture.” The shifty-eyed @#$%& went on to assure fans that he will do “everything in his power” to preserve the team’s proud heritage.

Censored by the Phonum. I'd like to see the Former name of the team censored as well!
