    So, my worthless opinion, its just best to not have a team named after a slur. Be it the majority or minority of people that are offended/not offended, its just best to go a different route.

    As someone whose watched a team rebrand/move multiple times, I find it comical how attached people get to team’s “heritage” (for lack of a better term).

    Nothing funnier than a shit team clinging to nothing but their name and history.

    One of the most racist NFL owners (Marshall) renamed the Team after a racial slur "Redskins".What's controversial about a name change exactly ?

    Washington Commanders or Sentinals imo.

    Team names are kind of silly to begin with IMO.
    Just say "Washington vs. _____" on Sunday.

    I mean the Utah "Beetdiggers"?
    or Arkansas "Wampus Cats"?
    "Washington Nimrods?" (real name btw)

    Shit I was talking about the browns


    Pigskins would be cool. Still have the skins as a shortened name, the colors can probably remain and you could argue it's a hogs reference, somehow.

    “Redskins” has been their name for over 80 years. Suddenly people are offended by a team name and confederate statues that have been up for centuries? Sounds like an election year. Funny how no one had a problem with the Redskins name or these statues when Obama was president.

    Dizzy posted a Berkeley study that questioned the following study but I think there’s still validity to a 500 person study:

    The Redskins name has retired before Adam Vinatieri

    There's a highschool in Minnesota called the Awesome Blossoms

    I think that'd be embarassing, but they're actually pretty good. So it must be a lot worse to be all the teams that lost to the Awesome Blossoms
