Separate names with a comma.

What are they doing about their Super Bowl banner? And Lombardi trophy? Changing the names retroactively?
There was another thread on this a few days ago where several posters chimed in with several different articles and polls about it. "Fabricated talking point"??? Me? Ha. How dare you
DeSean Jackson >>>>>> "Redskins" in the racist department. Has he been cut yet?
Perfect time to make the name change. Right now nobody is talking about sports.
please make it be the Snowflakes
Warriors has to be the most generic mascot ever. 134286 high schools called, they want their mascot back.
What ever, considering the original name it fits perfectly without offending the snowflakes..
File this with the other temporary "outrage" when the Oilers and Browns changed their names. Nobody cares that they're the Titans and the Ravens now. The Browns exist again. Houston got a team but named them the Texans instead of the Oilers. I lost track of the name and city swapping with the Rams and Cardinals.
I own a Hickory Crawdads hat.
it clearly promotes violence and glorifies war. I for one am OUTRAGED at this name.
I'm not necessarily upset with the Washington Warriors name, just the spelling. 11 letters, but only the w's are capitalized....are they implying w's are superior letters?
where can I buy that jersey?????!!!!!
Washington new name and logo will be announced sometime today..
Owner Snider is leaning toward the Warriors..
Holy shit, that Bunny RULES. Look at him.
To appease the SJW's we need to make the new mascot be the most marginalized person imaginable. It has to be someone who's mixed race, in a wheelchair, handicapped mentally, gay, trans, and identifies as a deer. They'd make up a name for it so noone can criticize it, like fubantias or something strange.
well I'm offended by the name warriors. Someone in history that was a warrior did something to offend me and the rainbow doesn't have brown or black so it's a racist nazi and offends me.
Don't forget the Rocket City Trash Pandas in Huntsville, Alabama!
A band already has that name.
Weird. I thought they were changing because "Washington" was the offensive part of the name. Guess I should pay more attention.
I hear that.. I personally think Creighton should be renamed the boyfondlers because of the whole Catholic affiliation.... Or any Lutheran schools should be the surfing Jesuses as I’m pretty sure most Americans are convinced Jesus was Swedish.... but I bet somebody will get butthurt if we start making religious comments...
Updated: ‘A long journey and many sacrifices’ leading to the scrapping of racist name and logo

The Washington NFL franchise announced Monday it is retiring its team name and logo. The franchise is developing a new name and design under the direction of team owner Dan Snyder and head coach Ron Rivera.
“On July 3rd, we announced the commencement of a thorough review of the team’s name,” the team said in a statement. “Today we are announcing we will be retiring the (deleted) name and logo upon completion of this review.”
The team gave no timeline on when a new name and logo will be released.
The team’s Director of Communications Sean DeBarbieri told Indian Country Today in an email, "We won’t be commenting until the full process has been completed."
The fight to change Native-themed mascots began in the 1970s and has since been largely led by Native women including Suzan Harjo, Hodulgee Muscogee and Cheyenne.
It was carried into 2020 with the help of Amanda Blackhorse, Diné, Crystal Echo Hawk, Pawnee, and many others who have been leading the fight for change.
Indian Country Today background on the use of Native American symbols and mascots

Some four years ago the Washington Post published a “poll” of Native Americans that said nine-in-ten did not object to the name of that city’s NFL team. That document was used by the team as its public excuse to dismiss repeated and consistent calls from tribal leaders, civil rights organizations, and a wide cross-section of Native Americans to change the name.
In 2019 the Post did it again. Another flawed study that reached with the same results.
“The data from previous opinion polls is often used to silence Native people,” Dr. Stephanie Fryberg, Tulalip, said in February. “But our study, which captures a broad diversity of Native peoples and experiences, shows high rates of opposition. As researchers and consumers of information, we need to be very careful about whose voices we claim to be representing.”
This is the perfect opportunity for a real, “thorough review” of the team’s name. (Then: How do you review what is already a “dictionary-defined racial slur?”)
I like the DC Redskins. Wait which name was the offensive one?
Well they needed something to make them relevant for a bit.
I didn't see anything religious in your comment
How about Washington swamp creatures
Duh....that's why I posted it
I can only speak for my family, but growing up the grandson of the granddaughter of Chief running bull, Souix tribe, the only team she cheered as hard for as her huskers, was the Redskins. She nor her kin had any other affiliation with D.C. the Irony is, that's where most of the broken promises that put her in the reform schools to whitewash her and her family originated.
That's a narrow view of why I feel that this a vocal minority affecting this change. Glad I dont care that much but I'm sure she would be pissed R.I.P Gramma Jan. And go Niners. GBR
Legalizing the weed in D.C. I'm all in on the Washington Weedmongers
Might be losing the owner too. Would be the best news possible as a Slurs fan
You see the guy who trademarked a bunch of likely names so they'll have to buy it back from him? Genius.
Saw a meme that would have worked ...keep the name and replace the face with a red skin potato.
The name change may be the least of the news coming out of Washington. "Toxic culture" rumors to say the least.
That would definitely be the easiest way out..
Should be Washington foreskins. We know what happens when you peel things back!
