Possible replacements:

Washington Redshirts (first Star Trek themed franchise)

Washington Skins (first human organ themed franchise)

Washington Reds (new mascot Joe McCarthy)

Washington Snyders (hey it worked for Paul Brown!)

Washington Georges (first President themed team)

They should revive one of the greatest, ironic though not intended to be so, names in all of sports:  The Washington Bullets.

Holy shit I’m on an Indians thing and they’re sending very clear signals - they’re changing their name.  I’ll miss it, but what can you say.  That old big nosed Indian mascot was racist as hell.  The more recent one, a little less offensive.    One cool thing I’ll miss was we kind of had a second name.  We just called the team the tribe.  It was like, “Hey tribe fans!  Stop by the right field bleachers for our 50 cent beer specials.  No kids after the 6th inning please since most of you will be blackout drunk by then!”
 

Now to think of the new name.

Cleveland Freighters.  

Cleveland Lakers.

If they try to synthesize the rock and roll thing I’ll fucking barf. That Cleveland is a rock town thing is pretty played out.  Got them the hall of fame but everyone hates Cleveland so much that they don’t even hold the annual induction show/concert in Cleveland.  It’s funny, actually.

If it’s like the “Rockers” or something it will be a sad day.

I’d go with the Flaming Cuyahogas. Dated but classic.

Cuyahoga was a tribe of natives, can’t happen.

Washington to announce name change today.

https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/29453631/source-redskins-announce-nickname-changed

Don’t know the new name but HC Ron Rivera wants it to somehow include the military, for whatever that’s worth. So maybe the Bullets is still in play...

I liked the idea of the Redtails, in reference the Tuskegee Airmen from World War II.
It sounds close to Redskins, it woudn't take much to change it.  They could keep the colors.
It checks off both something Military and hits from a social change perspective.
There are already some really good helmet and logo ideas on Google to check out.

Or they could go in another direction.  I don't have a dog in the fight, so it's whatever honestly.

Rumors point to the “Warriors.”  Meaning every game will have opponents twitter or whatever inundated with “warriors, come out to play!”  Snippets from the old movie.

FedEx strong armed Snyder, they pay a ton of cash to him for stadium naming rights or whatever.

Tom Hanks played a FedEx employee in that stranded on an island movie.  Thus they should be called the Washington Castaways.

Washington Wilsons. With a volleyball for their logo.

Crumpled, deflated, soiled volleyball.  Then the logo can be just like the owner.

DeWine is going to address the state today at 5:30, and the buildup (skipped briefing yesterday, has been in meetings planning it) indicates it will be something different.  I can’t guess what it is, but it’s significant.

Hoping they don't get stupid and issue a plan for stay at home mandates based on counties reaching "Level 4, purple" in COVID cases.
We don't have any counties at Level 4 in the state, but a few are close, to include Hamilton County.

Probably more like a state wide mandate for masks.
