    It looks like today is the day. The new name will be revealed later.

    Scuttlebutt in these parts are that the new name will be either Red Tails or Warriors.

    It's about time they changed that offensive part of their name. I hear they are going to change it to the DC Redskins! :D

    Unbelievable it took until 2020 to get this to finally change. I think if the team was named the Blackskins, Brownskins, or Yellowskins with associated cartoon logo it would have been changed far earlier. I suppose the smaller the minority the less other people care about using offensive names...unfortunately.

    I'm a Ravens fan so I suggest they change the name to the Washington Foreskins.

    You know what is so ironic, although changing the name will cost them some money, the revenue from all the new clothes, souvenirs and other crap will make Synder a fortune. I never understood his refusal to change the name.

    Honestly when they are okay with social justice stickers on their helmets and slogans written on the field.......who is going to watch the NFL, MLB or any "professional" sport. Once they started disrespecting the American flag/National anthem and expect to be rewarded for it......I'm out and not coming back until all the Social Justice crap is scrubbed away. Even then....I probably will have something else more interesting to do.

    I guess in the tradition of that "other" football sport, people will just call them "Washington FT".

    T[/QUOTE] Tom, my friend, you will always have "FLY EAGLES FLY" the all time greatest and most beloved of all sports teams songs. This is a well accepted fact that is beyond refutation and you can look it up.
