Washington RedskinsMike Ditka has been in the news recently for his statements regarding The Washington Redskins.  He believes the team should continue to go by that name despite its trademark being revoked by The United States Trademark and Patent Office.  The Patent office cites the name as disparaging to Native Americans.  Mike Ditka disagrees.

I don’t have a feeling about this decision one way or the other.  I don’t live in Washington and I don’t follow the NFL.

Many Redskins fans, however, will undoubtedly be upset about the ruling.  However, there’s a silver lining in all of this; the Redskins will most likely have to change their uniforms and logo.

Here’s to hoping they don’t choose the ugliest color combinations possible.  Oh wait, they already did that.

Since the Redskins are without a name and mascot, I took it upon myself to come up with a few options.  Hopefully Washington will choose one of these and send me tickets to their opening game.

16 Thoughts on “Suggestions For Name Changes For The Washington Redskins

  1. The Filibusters! Too funny. Their mast Fil would slay us all with tons of words that say nothing.

  2. As a fellow “I don’t give a fig about the NFL-er”, I am going to say “Lattes”. I totally think about Lattes when someone says Washington state. I needed a laugh today!

  3. I love that you’re coming up with slogans for NFL teams. Hilariously irrelevant.

  4. Having been born in Washington, D.C. and lived there most of my life, and having not cared about the Redskins for a whole lifetime (that’s 40+ years of not caring–tell me that’s not devotion), I would cast my vote for the Snowplows. Given how hilariously inept the D.C. area is at snow removal, it would be fitting. In fact, if the football team was as competent as the snow removal people (which they may be–since I don’t follow football, I really have no idea) you could bet on them NOT to be in the Super Bowl every year, and win handily.

    • I don’t follow football either so I guess it’s the blind leading the blind here. Wait, isn’t that what they do in Congress? Crap! That’s another possible name!

      • They actually had a baseball team called the Senators back in the 40s and 50s (I don’t follow baseball either, I just know that). The problem today is that to be believable, they’d have to call them what they really are, and “Corrupt Unethical Power Hungry Bribe Taking Scumbag Weasels” would be really hard to fit on a jersey.

  5. Oh Lisa… Don’t ever change.
