Washington Warriors. "Redskins" is just a reminder of the NFL's racist & offensive past. There are no teams in the other leagues called the Whiteys or the Blackskins with the stereotypical head of a white guy or a black guy as their logo.

Redskins owner has already trademarked 'Warriors'. He was going to use it for his arena football team, so it wouldn't be that hard for them to switch over. Not sure why people keep saying stuff like "well when I think of Redskins I think of tribal warriors bravely fighting for their people etc et". The original owner of the Redskins named them that because he was a racist and a white supremacist. He did not mean it as a compliment.

Do not know about the original owner or any of his story but why would anyone want to name their team after somone they found "lesser"?

The Redskins owner, George P. Marshall, was on the trailing edge of race relations even for his time. "The nickname had been the brainchild of George Preston Marshall, a laundry magnate and flamboyant showman who had bought the Boston Braves football team in 1932. As his second head coach, Marshall hired William “Lone Star” Dietz, a journeyman coach at the collegiate level whose mother was most likely a Sioux. It was in “honor” of Dietz, who coached the team for just two seasons and who at Marshall’s urging willingly put on war paint and Indian feathers before home games, that Marshall changed the team’s name to the Redskins. When Marshall, frustrated by Boston fans’ lack of support, moved the franchise to the nation’s capital in 1937, the coach was gone, but the team name stayed." Here is a link to the book review, it has some interesting history about race relations, the Redskins and the NFL: http://www.nybooks.c...agination=false 4 Reasons a name change should not bother you http://www.hogshaven...-not-bother-you

Since the name Redskins is in honor of a man who coached the team for two seasons, why not carry on that tradition and name them after another iconic member of the team. How about the RG3s?
