    Washington Warriors would be the perfect name for the NFL

    Wait … what’s that sound? I think we just heard Rosemary’s Baby, Donald J. Trump’s head go ‘POP’.

      @Brandon C. Are you crying? Does he scare you little boy?

      @Billy M. It’s possible to be both politically correct _without_ being anti-intellectual. Your assertion is conflating the two things. When you say things like “none of this” you may want to be more specific. “This” could mean a lot of things. I may agree with you on some cases, but not others.

    • @JamieLan2011 this isnt about political correctness. It’s about shaming the white man. Shaming the white man went into overdrive when Trump was elected in 2016 because the dems have no other coarse of action to take. None of this existed before. If it did it wasn’t even remotely taken seriously. Aunt Jemima has been cancel for Christ sake. This is anti-intellectual nonsense. Based on nothing but political subversion and manipulation. I feel sorry for colored people. They are being treated like the dems pets. They will do nothing for them in the end.

    • @Billy M. then you should be ready to vote trump out.. you said it yourself this wasnt a problem till trump happened.. now how ya gonna backpedal on your own words like a typical trumper?

      Everyone needs to ignore Trump..

      The Team was named to honor the bravely and fight in American Indians

    • @Miss Lana. M. Hudson We don’t need Trump to tell us how dumb you liberals are you are doing a good job yourselves. NFL 1920-2020 watch the implosion. By by.

    • @Name Uhhh… SO the Houston Oilers changed to the Titans.. I hear the Raiders and the Rams changed a couple times too. With your logic, I guess the NFL is doomed. Oh well.

  7. It is about time, the word redskin is such a derogatory word. I can’t believe it’s been around for 80 years. The other teams that uses American Indian as mascots aren’t as bad. The art is bad but at least their names isn’t derogatory.

  8. What name would you like to see?

    The Washington ______________.

    Keep in mind that Boaty McBoatface is already taken.

  9. What’s that sobbing sound coming out of the White House bunker?

    WINNING HUH Maga thx for sticking your heads out.

  11. Diego Winterborg | July 13, 2020 at 11:10 AM | Reply

    I am calling it: Washington WARRIORS!

  12. If they want to go for alliteration Washington Warriors is a possibility, but I feel Washington Wannabees is more appropriate.

  13. The term “redskin” is not a description of native American natural skin color. It was a derogatory term concocted to describe their blood soaked corpses after the many genocidal massacres carried out by settlers and the military. The name is really, really horrifying and totally sick for a sports team.

    • Why make your case now? You lost already. XD

      @Margaret Nicol Yeah, they actually were. Get some history in you.

    • A victory over an enemy.

    • Laurence Kueffer | July 14, 2020 at 3:08 AM | Reply

      I’ve never seen it used as a reference to bloodied corpses. I looked it up in Wikipedia, and there’s nothing about that there; instead, they base it upon other factors. You just invented that malicious idea, Sarabeth, If you want to prove me wrong, then come up with a reference source.
