HERE’S AN appropriate new name for Washington’s football team: The Redsins. That would be a powerful reminder of the abominable treatment of Native Americans throughout the ages.
— Rich, Corrales
MY SUGGESTION for the Washington owner is that he rename his team the “pansies,” or perhaps the “daisies.” Naming it for a flower would (hopefully) not offend anyone, and either name is appropriate.

WASHINGTON SHOULD keep the name Redskins. They could be the “Potato Redskins” or they could be the “Peanut Redskins”. Either way they will still be the Washington Redskins.
THE TEAM can keep the name but simply use a redskin potato or a redskin peanut as the mascot on the helmets. And importantly, it will more accurately reflect the actual play of the team.
A VERY FITTING name: the Washington Invertebrates.
