Washington Redskins name change: 'Warriors' leading contender

Recommended Posts

Still controversial.  The NBA has Golden State Warriors.  But Marquette University changed their team name from the Warriors.

Depending on the logo, it really doesn't signify 1 group or another.   While other sport franchises may have a problem with the name, hard for any one group to say they are the warriors depicted by the name and as such offended by it.

I just looked up some Marquette logos because I couldn't  remember.  Looks like some of the older stuff was very possible offensive.  The newest did not seem to be.  Glad my daughter chose Loyola over Marquette.....got to see a Final Four run!!!

Maybe to compleatly avoid all issues we should give each team a human name, the Washington Willy's, Tennessee Tim's and Seattle Steve's,

Sounds like they'll end up there, but too bad they couldn't pick a name that wasn't already used in the NBA. Why not pick the Yankees or Crimson Tide for that matter?

Putting anything offensive or not aside, I don’t get it. Changing the name is a big deal, choose something unique. Why would you want to retread something like warriors?

I agree.  Seems like a generic name that's already been used.  Red Tails seems good, I don't know the history on that much.  I did like The Swamp.  D.C. Comics, Washington Warrens after brave Native American leader Elizabeth Warren (not a political statement by me fyi).

Redskins to be retired tomorrow.  There is a trademark squatter registering all the popular choices; so that has to be resolved before they can announce their new name.

Hail to the Redskins will never carry the same steam .

 

this wasn’t as much the power of protest as it was an absolute sabotage by the sponsors.

Well, the sponsors used their leverage because the protests pushed them to do so. It's all related I think.

The skins fell victim to cancel culture. The same people that defaced an actual Frederick Douglass statue were part of the skins getting cancelled . It’s a slippery slope to me but what do I know

I heard Fanduel was taking odds on Washington's new name but I can't find anything on their site.  Anyone have some info?

Couldn't find anything on Fanduel, but the current odds are on Redtails, which I kinda like.

 

 

Redtails (+200) 
Presidents (+300)

Memorials (+500)

Veterans (+800)

Monuments (+1000)

RedHawks (+1200)

Hogs (+5000)

Red Wolves (No Odds)

Warriors (No Odds)

Sentinels (No Odds)

I thought RedTails made most sense but I'd be there are no odds on Warriors for a reason.  I think that might be the leader at this point, followed by RedTails.

Warriors has such a Pop Warner sound to it for me, My favorites in order are:

 

Redtails

Sentinels

Red Wolves

Monuments

Veterans

Warriors

RedHawks

Presidents

Memorials

Hogs
