This week the Washington Redskins organizations announced they were ditching the name and rebranding after a years long battle over the term “redskin” and its heritage as a racial slur to native people. It’s unclear if in the current climate they will be allowed to keep “Washington” since founding fathers are not allowed any sins in the eyes of the mob.
Regardless – I have some great ideas for the rebrand. Here are my top 10 best names.
1. Washington Warrens
Elizabeth Warren is a proud native woman and it’s time the NFL paid her tribute.
2. Washington Truthy Interns
Nothing is more frightening to DC professionals.
3. Capitol Cronies
Just in case we CAN’T use Washington. Descriptive of the local peoples.
4. Washington Redtapes
Barely changes the name. Ironically the most cost effective option.
5. D.C. ~Intellectuals~
It’s aspirational! NFL viewers will love it!
6. Maryland’s Other Team
Baltimore has the Ravens so they could just be the other guys.
7. Washington Women’s Marchers
A truly unstoppable movement. Who wouldn’t want to be associated with those ~feminists~?
8. Washington Capitals
This is already the name of the Stanley Cup winning hockey team so maybe if they take their name they might make a playoff someday also.
9. DC Area Black Lives Matter
It seems to be a popular name to paint on stuff so this one should stick.
10. Washington Racism Solvers
They changed the name so it’s over now. They did it.
