Apparently they are going to pursue changing the name again.

What a fucking ignorant organization.

Wonder what Libtards have to say about this.


Now, a Native American organization has launched a petition asking the NFL club to change the name back to Redskins. The petition already has over 65,000 signatures. According to their release:

We, are passionate supporters of the Washington Redskins and its rich history. We write to you today as a collective voice, urging you to reconsider the recent name change from the Redskins to the Commanders. We believe that restoring the original name, the Redskins, is the right decision for the team, its loyal fanbase, and the legacy it represents.
The name “Redskins” carries deep cultural, historical, and emotional significance, honoring the bravery, resilience, and warrior spirit associated with Native American culture. It was never intended as a derogatory or offensive term but as a symbol of respect and admiration. Changing the name abruptly disregards the positive legacy that the Redskins name has built over the years and disorients the passionate fans who have invested their emotions, time, and unwavering support in the team.

We acknowledge the concerns surrounding cultural sensitivity and the need to foster inclusivity. However, we firmly believe that there are alternative ways to honor and respect Native American heritage without erasing it. By reclaiming the Redskins name, we have the opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue, educational initiatives, and collaborations with Native American communities. Together, we can promote cultural appreciation, address misconceptions, and work towards a more inclusive society.

The name “Commanders” fails to capture the essence, tradition, and historical weight associated with the Redskins. It lacks the uniqueness, emotional connection, and pride that our team’s original name embodies. The change to “Commanders” dilutes our team’s identity and weakens the connection with its devoted fanbase. By restoring the Redskins name, we reinstate a symbol of unity, strength, and shared identity that has inspired generations of fans.

We recognize that change is sometimes necessary and beneficial. However, in this case, the name change has caused division among supporters, tarnishing the team’s legacy and distancing it from its roots. As fans, we seek unity, respect, and inclusivity. We believe that the name Redskins can be a catalyst for positive change, fostering understanding and appreciation for Native American heritage through community outreach, education, and collaboration.

In light of the aforementioned reasons, we kindly request that you reconsider the name change and reinstate the name Redskins. By doing so, you will honor the history, tradition, and emotional connection that millions of fans have forged with the team. We stand united in our belief that this change will strengthen the team’s identity, engage the fanbase, and promote a spirit of unity and understanding.

Thank you for your time and consideration. We eagerly await your positive response and remain dedicated to supporting our team, the Washington Redskins.

The dude is a genius after all. And he's part of a committee deciding how the front office is going to be constructed and moving forward on the HC search. It's a committee with many various professional backgrounds represented.

Condie Rice is one of the owners, this ownership group is the richest in the league in both dollars and grey matter. Washington is going to be a problem going forward. New owners have been hands off so far. Intentionally. I can see they have a plan.

You said they'd be a problem this year. And last year, and probably every other year since we started posting.

Somebody's a closet Foreskin fan.

I've never considered them a problem under their idiot previous owner. I didn't know the new group was keeping hands off for a full season. That's over now, and this ownership group is filled with people who are winners and won't tolerate losing. Just bookmark it.
