Skip to comments.Could Washington Redskins become Washington Bravehearts?
Posted on 10/25/2013 10:45:49 AM PDT by Zakeet
In recent weeks Redskins owner Dan Snyder has seemed to warm up to the idea of changing the Redskins name. So the report that a wealthy neighbor of his applied for a patent to lock down the name Washington Bravehearts is more than a little spicy.
According to TMZ, Aris Mardirossian, "a wealthy patent investor" who lives "a few doors down" from Dan Snyder, registered the name "WASHINGTON BRAVEHEARTS" on Oct. 17.
CBSSports.com has also learend Mardirossian registered the domain WashingtonBravehearts.com on October 18.
The patent license, per TMZ, is for "entertainment in the nature of football games."
TMZ also obtained the LLC filings (.PDF) for Washington Brave Hearts, LLC.
First impressions of this: What a potentially awesome move. Bravehearts is a sick name and -- unless I'm totally insensitive -- not offensive. It maintains much of the same sense of the name Redskins, but gets rid of the whole, pesky, we're-offending-an-entire-culture thing.

That name heap less offensive to people with high cheekbones!
As my heritage is Scottish, I am offended. I guess I’ll call my congress-critter.
Having caved to the politically correct then I assume “Bravehearts” is meant sarcastically?
If the Leftists get the name changed, they win. And that is all they care about. They couldn’t care less what the football team is named, because they just want to make social change.
Then, they will go on to the next ‘name’ that ‘offends’ them so they can get it changed and rack up another win.
One small win at a time and PC moves the nation a little more leftward.
If I were Scottish, I’d be offended.
Time for collectors to buy up as much “Redskins” memorabilia as they can.
Hail to Mel Gibson...
Kilts on the warpath...
Fight for old P.C.!
It even fits.
Let’s see how they like:
WASHINGTON TEA PARTY
If they were too chicken to keep their original name, “Braveheart” seems a little much.
Maybe “Browbeaten” is more like it.

Remember that for the original Boston Tea Party....they dressed up as Indians....
It's a universally appealing solution!
The conservative case:
Naming a professional sports franchise after somebody is an honor worthy of Ronald Reagan because of his great accomplishments, including, but not limited to:
The liberal case:
Naming a professional sports franchise after a person is a horrendous and dishonorable insult to their legacy, a fate Ronald Reagan deserves because of the horrible things he did, including, but not limited to:
A city named after a great president deserves a football team named after a great president.

More like the FAINTHEARTS.
I think you’ve got it!
Change the “Washington Redskins” to the “Washington Reagans!”
I like it.
