Skip to comments.Vanity- the Washinton Redhawks name trademarked in Febuarary. Freeper help needed.
Posted on 10/25/2013 11:01:21 AM PDT by barmag25
Doing some thinking today about how a few liberals made a college close to where I grew up change their name.
The name was the University of Miami Redskins in Ohio.
They became the Redhawks because Redskins is off course to offensive.
I searched trademarks and found the name Washington Redhawks was trademarked by a guy in D.C. Back in Febuarary.
Is somebody looking to get rich off this? Who is this guy? Any close ties to Dan Snyder or the Redskins? Any involvement in the protesting for the name change?
Let us know when you've completed it.
The Washington Redmohawks!
These people are ‘Trademark Squatters’. They register a trademark in the hopes of selling to the actual owner for a huge profit............
The Washington Red Inks would be very apropos.................
Picky bit, but the University of Miami is in Florida. Miami University is in Ohio.
I suggested that when they changed their names from Redskins to Redhawks that they should dump the Miami name (from one of the local tribes and the major river in the area) for Oxford (name of the city they are in) so that the Indian tribe be forgotten completely. No one listened to me. :-(
Snatch up the domain name now,,, cyber squat it...
It's the real solution to the Washington Redskins problem:
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.
LOL! Can I help you whitewash that fence?
They don’t even play in Washington DC.
“Beltway Braves” is probably a more accurate/descriptive moniker - IF they decide to make the mistake of changing it at all.
So then why not the Washington Washingtons?
Or Washington Redtape
No way!!!! It would be hard to hate them then. Can’t do that.
Right now they would be the Washington Red Faces................
The Washington BraveHearts was trademarked earlier this month by Dan Snyder’s neighbor.
Sure, but it seems pretty dumb to do that before anyone has chosen to use the name. Who is going to go with “Washington Redhawks” if they see it is already trademarked? They’ll just pick something else.
Not to mention that Ronnie starred in one of the great football films of all time, so there is at least a small connection to the sport.
And their secondary can be collectively nicknamed Star Wars, because they intercept bombs.
Don Chernoff Author of “wild Washington”
He is a photographer for the Potomac Conservancy, weren’t these the folks protesting when snyder cut the trees on his property back in 06.
also did an interview in wapo about luggage his company was selling to Men’s warehouse.
Said his company is developing football helmets to protect football players from concussions.
From the article:
And he has other business ideas he’s eager to explore, such as a helmet to better protect football players from concussions. “I’d love to talk to Dan Snyder about it,” he says.
Are these guys friends?
As I said before, Mr. Snyder is playing this for his advantage:
'The side story is that DC wants the 'Redskins' to move back to DC. The FBI wants to move out of their old building.
This is all just to get the deal done. Break lease in Md of current stadium, change name, move stadium, relocate FBI to Md. All done.
I call BS on the whole name controversy. I say Dan Snyder is behind it. New city, New name, and all the fans need to Re-buy jackets, Hats, and shirts.
Personally I really like the name but am dead set against changing. I'm sick and tired of the whiny left always winning these damn things!

It’s currently rejected for being confusing with the Seattle University Redhawks.
Note that a trademark registration is not granted (even if the rejections are overcome) until the mark is actually used in interstate commerce (this guy needs to start putting on football games.)
The Washington Redhawks new uniforms maybe?
