Sports Speak Up! More suggestions for names to replace Redskins including some you surely hadn’t thought of

YO RANDY just a thought bout renaming of the Washington Redskins. There are only (a few) teams not named after cities (among them) the Arizona Cardinals (formerly the Phoenix Cardinals formerly the St. Louis Cardinals and the New England Patriots (formerly the Boston Patriots). So why not the DC__________ maybe Defenders?

HOW ABOUT the Federals? Seems to me that would cover a lot of bases and make their primary sponsor delighted.

NEW NAME FOR WASHINGTON: “Washington Savages”

— Chuck Scheib

HERE IS A novel idea. They can change the name to as follows: Washington FedEx (sponsor of the stadium they play in) Mailers AKARedskins! Although that would be infringing on the rights of UNM by using the AKA moniker for “The Pit”.

MY IRISH ANCESTORS were treated poorly upon their arrival to America. We got over it. Actually toughened up and brawled our way to acceptance. Hence the nickname Fighting Irish for Notre Dame. Is that nickname going to be leaving us, too, in our new soft America? Difficult to believe that we’ve gone from World War II’s Greatest Generation that saved the world to a new fragile and delicate country. It’s not my America. If the Fighting Irish nickname is eliminated, I think I’ll give up watching sports altogether.
