Poll: What Should the Redskinsí New Name Be?
PJ Media ^ | June 18, 2014 - 9:46 am | by Bryan Preston

Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is not a particularly admirable man. He tends to treat the Redskins as if he’s playing fantasy football. They tend to lose more often than they win. He’s not exactly a fan favorite. But Snyder isn’t taking the U.S. Patent Office’s ruling against his team lying down.

The team has released a statement saying the ruling “will have no effect at all on the team’s ownership of and right to use the Redskins’ name/logo”. They’re correct, but it does allow others to use the name as they wish…the just can’t trademark it either.

Which, in the short term at least, means we’re likely to see a whole lot of pirated Redskins merch hit the streets. Dan Snyder just won’t make any money from it.

For its part, the NFL is trying to be Switzerland. It’s not going to say anything in support of or opposition to the Patent Office’s decision.

At some point, the Washington Redskins will be forced to change their name. It’s only a matter of time. The hostile occupying force that is now the Beltway cannot abide anything less than total capitulation from the rest of us. After that, maybe Washington will see fit to force Oklahoma (translation: “red people”) to officially call itself “Texas’ Pan-Shaped Hat.”

Snyder could have some fun with a Redskins renaming contest, though. Twitter has lit up with alternative names. Snyder could poll test them to see which ones capture Americans’ current attitudes.

What do you think the Redskins’ new name should be?

Washington RedTapes (12%, 154 Votes)

Washington Extremists of Undetermined Religious Background (20%, 252 Votes)

Washington Desk Jockeys (3%, 35 Votes)

Washington Bolsheviks (40%, 496 Votes)

Beltway Bandits (26%, 322 Votes)

Total Voters: 1,242

The Navajos of Red Mesa High School don’t mind the name Red Skins.

Only liberal whites, satanists, have a problem with it.

Just call them the “SKINS”, and make sure the letters are bright RED.

Just Washington. Dan Snyder has said he’ll never change the name of the Redskins so fine, don’t do it. If the league forces him to drop the Redskins name then don’t choose a new one. Refuse to be called anything but “Washington” and send a message that way.

Conservative radio host was just booted off of radio for daring to say the word; “REDSKIN”.
