What is the dilemma? Who is against the name, exactly? .00003% of the population? I would bet that there are probably more people offended by the name, “American Beaver”!

Call them the Washington Foreskins and put a politician’s face on every uniform.

I think you’ll find that most of the “offended” are “offended on behalf of”s.

Good solution!

This is only slightly better than my suggested solution after Obama inserted himself into the issue.

I thought the "Washington Red Lines" might be acceptable to Obama.

This issue is confused

Nobody offends me, I take offence
Nobody makes me mad, I cause my own anger
Nobody frightens me, I cause my own fear

These emotions are self inflicted wounds
If someone is “offended”
they are speaking volumes about themselves

One MUST take command of their own emotions
One MUST take command of their own thoughts
Adults do this.

Or they remain emotional infants,
pooping in their own diapers

If the Redskins need a new name, why not the Oklahoma City Redskins? Or the Boise Redskins?

I posted it here 2-3 months ago, so they must be lurkers.

Drop Washington and use Federal. Drop Redskins and use deficits. The Federal Deficits. I like it.

My suggestion is to rename them the “Washington Reagans”, or “Rayguns”. Either one would make PC heads explode.

Just take away the last four letters and you have the perfect name, “Reds”.
