Snyder is sitting on a GOLDMINE. If he changed the team name, think of all the fans buying the new merch.

[slightly relevant tangent]

Owners like him, Dolan (Knicks), and Jerruh are bad for sports. They think *they* are the story and all they do is meddle with potential success.

The league should step in and force a sale because Snyder continually fields a non-competitive team*. Dolan hasn't fielded a worthy team since dumping Ewing in 2000.

Same as Marge Schott and George Streinbrenner in the years between Misters October and November.

I'm sure the Browns and Lions wouldn't mind a competent ownership group.

If the owners think they're playing too, they should face the same risks for poor performance. If not taking their franchise away, make them pay for the postseason.

[/slightly relevant tangent]

Snyder still hasn't provided anything close to a valid reason to keep the team name, and he continually fails to read the room. In the larger context, real and fake billionaires seem to be quite out of touch with the vox populi.

On the lighter side, maybe owners should start naming teams with aspersions against white people. The Karens, Flatasses, Great White Fragiles, Inbred Hillbillies, Slowpokes, Insider Traders, Ponzi Schemers, Frivolous Lawsuits, Creepy Neighbors, Fratboy Chads, Lowjumpers, Bribers, Complainers, Participation Trophies, Tax Evaders, Embezzlers, Pretenders, Michael Boltons, Brunch Bunch, Serial Killers, Chickenhawks, Cheaters, Fortune Stealers, Bribers, Nepotism, and the Patriots. 


* As a Giants fan, I acknowledge my team's ownership would be in jeopardy as well.

FedEx can fark right off. It's not like new information has become available, they signed the contract and theoretically profited from it for a very long time. If they finally don't like it, they should buy out the rest of the deal and have their name taken off of it.

And then the Redskins should change their name. Maybe to the Lobbyists. Most people hate them and people's values can be abruptly changed for cash in Washington, so it'd be a nice fit.

I don't know of any other reason why he should be such a stalwart defender of that stupid name, and I think he only resists because he's a rich asshole who can't stand to look as if he made a decision because people told him to,

Also, I think there's an example (locally even) that demonstrates how simple it is.  I think, at this point, most people don't even remember when the Washington Wizards were the Bullets.  And the people who know, don't care.  Sure, the team lacks support, but not because of their name change.  It's because they've been mismanaged for decades by a raging asshole.  Come to think of it, maybe Dan likes having the argument about the team name as a distraction from his other shortcomings

OTOH: Wizards is a stupid name and everyone mocks your team for being even more late to the game than the stupid Magic name.

I actually like the Bullets name (and stage logo, and some of the uniforms), but I don't have any emotional attachment.  Almost every sports teams's name is stupid, it's just that most of them have been around so long that we don't really think about it.


Plus the whole Gilbert Arenas thing would have been soooo much better if the team had still been the Bullets.

I stopped watching the Bullets/Wizards because of the name change. It happened when I was a teenager and was really getting into sports, and I loved the Bullets name, the Bullets logo (with the two L's going for the jump ball) and the Bullets uniform. I didn't like that they were changing their name, but hey, nothing I can do about change.

But then they changed their name to the dumbest thing possible. The wizards? What a terrible farking name. And the logo sucked. And the uniforms were ugly as hell (its better now that they went to old color scheme).

I've been a Redskins fan my whole life, but I am perfectly fine with a name change. It's long overdue. I just don't have any faith that they won't fark it up like the did with the Bullets. Warriors is as bad a name as Wizards. I don't think Redtails is a good name for any sports team. Just call them the Washington Football club. Keep the colors. Reword the fight song. There isn't a name change that is going to satisfy the fans.

This.  This is exactly what needs to happen.  You don't even lose the fight song this way.


There was a rumor at one point that Danny-boy trademarked the Washington Warriors name but I don't know if it's TRUE.

You see, ol' Dan desperately wants the site of the old RFK Stadium so he can tear that down and build his new $1 Billion+ palace

The problem? DC has said, "You want the site, change the name."


Took long enough, but it's nice to see the corporate world actually willing to speak with their dollars in situations like this.

I'm good with that. Also, any NCAA athletics program that does business with Nike shall adopt the "Asian Slave Laborers" mascot.

Wow, this is the most fitting name I've ever seen.

Told you so.

The damn caps are ALREADY made sitting in a warehouse waiting to be shipped (checks e-mail, yep tracking number). You want the NFL to ship off those hats to El Salvador, Haiti, Armenia or Africa like they do for the loosing NFL Superb Owl jerseys/hats?

P.S. Really not a bigot
