How about if we go the Prince route and give them a symbol that has no pronunciation?  Might offend the fewest people.

They aren't going to rename the team.

Any press release announcing an inquiry that uses the term a half dozen times isn't going to find a problem wit the term

In this case, Snyder also gets a sweetheart land deal if he changes the name. He may be a hardcore bigot but he's also a rapacious bigot.

Sporty McPalefaces.

Or you could do something like Washington Abolitionists. Bonus we'd get to watch Dan Snyder choke when he hears the idea.

They aint gonna be renamed. Their owner is a racist f*ck (with documents showing he doesn't give a shiat about black people either) who doesn't care. Once he dies, then maybe I'll listen to ideas about renaming the team.

They could be the Nixons, or the Nixon if you want to get pretentious. He was a fan.

If major corporate sponsors pull the plug and stay away, Snyder will change it.

Right now he is stalling for this to blow over, but if pressure continues he will fold for money.

Major corporate sponsors have been "complaining" for years. You'll have to forgive me if I don't consider that a serious rebuke.

Oh I was hoping for the Pigskins. Maybe that's too close to the old name, but I always thought that was more Footbally and folks could still get away with calling them the Skins.

Also, what are we going to do about the Chiefs?

Oh, sure, autocorrect, you will change one word to another, but you won't correct a typo. Ducking tablet...

To balance the universe they should be named the Washington Rednecks for the next 50 or so years. Then go the boring, generic naming route like most soccer teams do.

You cold also name them after an American patriot who took 2nd Amendment solutions to tyranny. Who could argue about that level of patriotism?
