Change it to “A-holes”, in honor of Bob Costas and all the other “holier than thou” idiots who want to change the name due to “insensitivity” issues.

Snyder will be “bought out” after extorting as much as possible from the league (some backroom deal involving large transfers of wealth). Then he’ll cave on the name.

Rename them the Politicians. It’s fitting.

I can’t see how changing a team name is going to help their business.

If the league is going to pressure him to change the name, then he damn well ought to do that. The name is an extremely valuable international brand - imagine the reaction if Coca-Cola was forced to change its name due to an anti-drug campaign complaining about it's reference to cocaine. It's no different for the Redskins.

This is amazing. They are going to change the name for the sake of political correctness. That, and a handful of malcontents don’t like it. We really need some men in leadership positions in this country.

Its always been just a question of when the cave-in would occur. The Left strikes again, and again capitulation is the all but certain response. No one ever stands up to the Left after they orchestrate their well established campaign.

It starts as some local “outrage” then the lefty organizations start organizing around it. We then see the Left try to leverage shame and embarrassment associated with the mere mention of the name, or person, or organization in an effort to stigmatize and therefore marginalize. Then the issue gets instantly amplified by someone like Bob Costas and of course then the NYTimes fulminates and it's over, the Left now has an “official” cause which everyone must now bow down to.

I'm almost there anyway with the month of pink crap (now infiltrating college football), the soon-to-be-two-hand touch rules, the broadway dance numbers over making a tackle and the whiney millionaire crybabies (wait, maybe I am over it), but if Snyder gives in and bows to PC over the Redskins name, I'm done. I have better things to do with my Sundays, anyway.

Although, the 'changed my mind about spiking' quarterback sneak to beat the Cowboys was awesome.

Where the hell were they last season? They didn’t like the name then, either, but they didn’t raise a gigantic stink about it. And why aren’t they demanding the Cleaveland Indians be renamed the Cleavland Native-Americans?

I’m surprised no one has stumbled upon the most obvious solution.......... two names. Washington Redskins at home, Washington Appeasers on the road. Doubles the uniform sales. Plus, imagine placing graphics of the great appeasers in history on the road helmets? A marketing bonanza.........

If forced to change the name, he ought to move the team to southern California and give all the angry leftist politicians in DC something to discuss with their neighbors.

Not sure where I heard this.

Redskins announcing a name change

Because White Guilt Liberals Association has requested the NFL disassociate itself from any name that might be construed as demeaning in any way, shape, or form, the Washington Redskins have announced that they will change their name to the Washington Foreskins in honor of all the d*ckheads in Washington DC

Long time Redskin fan here. Following them since the beginning of the 72 season. First Redskin/football game I saw was the first game of the 72 season on Monday night against the Vikings. Became hooked. Was glad to see some of the greats play though it was at the end of their careers. Jurgunson, Kilmer, Charley Taylor, Pat Fisher, Larry Brown, Hanburger, McDole, Talbert, on and on.

Some great games over the years. The Thanksgiving Day game with Clint Longley pulling it out of his ass. We got even last year. The final game of the 79 season, again the Cowboys destroyed our dreams. Then in 82, we beat them in the playoffs. The bodybag game. Three Super Bowls. A record 35 points in one quarter against the Broncos.

Over the last several years it has been tough being a Skins fan. Dan Snyder would charge you for the air you breath in the stadium if he could get away with it. Man, he has destroyed this once great team by treating like a fantasy club. RG III brought me back last year. Until that playoff game where Shanahan nearly let him get killed. Then the same stuff this year as the past twenty. Sad.

I make a vow right now that if they change the name from the Redskins to anything else, I will never root for them again. I will throw my hat in with the Packers.

I believe so too. The NFL isn’t calling Snyder in to talk, they are calling him in to pressure him or offer him no alternative. The decision is already made.IMO

Name them the Washington Hybrids .

I hate to say it, but I think it’s best they change the name.

Why fight a losing battle.

In the future we should refer to the team as the:

Will I still be able to buy Red Chief Apples, or does that not "count"?

And, they're gunna have to change the name of the State of Oklahoma. Look up what it means in Choctaw.

I just love how the minority now dictate to the majority.
