I can’t believe they finally caved to the backlash


Omg they are missing the point entirely. They should just name it something generic like the Savages so people can move on. Same logo though. Don’t see how a proud chief could be seen as bad. Even people in india don’t get offended by it.


This reminds me of a quote from when the Washington Bullets changed their name to the Wizards: “The Washington Bullets are changing their name to something that does not conjure images of violence. From now on, they will just be known as the Bullets”.


I have said it once and I’ll say it a million times. If they change their logo to a bake potato you have a fan for life buying a lot of merch.


Finally they understand how offensive it is to use Washington in the same sentence as Redskin. Don’t taint the mans image
