Washington _________

Post by MissouriValleyUnite »

Redtails please. Instantly a top-5 name and honors the historical significance of the Tuskegee Airmen.

-Snyder always swore up and down he would never change the name.
-July 2-FedEx, one of the franchise’s top sponsors and holder of the stadium’s naming rights, released a statement asking the team to change it’s name.
-Last week, FedEx sent a letter to Snyder saying they would take the company’s name off FedEx Field if he didn’t change the team’s name.
-Pepsico, Nike, and Bank of America made similar demands.
-This is the only way to deal with scumbags like Snyder-threaten them with serious financial consequences. Moral appeals are meaningless to them.

That would be fantastic and a no brainer. But I doubt it happens.

Other potential names of local significance:

Washington Thrush (official bird of DC)
Washington Federals
Washington Memorials

I think Red Tails is cool, except there isn't a tie to DC. If the team was based in Alabama, it would make more sense.

Right or wrong, this is going to be a domino effect as every high school and college in the nation will be pressured to change their name. Of course, FSU will be exempt.

Redtails is cool but they would have to buyout Martin McCaulay.

I don't know who this Keanu Reeves you speak of is. Now if you're talking about the greatest Sentinels QB of all time, Shane Falco, that's a different story. They could even bring back legendary Sentinels head coach Jimmy McGinty.

I am all for capitalism, but I do wish we had legal protections against this type of stuff. Like a patent for products, there should be some legal justification of an actual product or the protection is not granted.
