In the realm of 2020s stupid decisions made in the name of racial sensitivity changing the name of the Washington Redskins, while still stupid, is perhaps towards the bottom of the list.
Many have already suggested changing the teams mascot rather than its name:
Given the direction the NFL is headed these days why not go a step further and require all NFL teams change their names to various potato cultivars? The options are numerous and colorful
making name choices plentiful.
For example how about the Green Bay Jewels:
The Minnesota Purple Vikings:
The New York Roosters:
The Buffalo Butterballs:
The Huston Huckleberries:
The Cleveland Russets:
Or maybe really shake things up and go with the Cleveland Purples:
The mascots practically make themselves.
I think its perfect for the NFL who has adopted the motto Believe in nothing rather than having to do anything. Why not name your teams after the couch potatoes that have supported you lo, these many years?

Idaho would have to get a franchise for this to really work.
The Marihuana folks are really good at naming their products. Me? I would take a page from, “the artist formerly known as Prince” and tweak the PC snowflakes
But just like how they forced changing calling people 'crippled' to 'handicapped', and then woke to find even that was bad, they forced a change to 'physically disabled', they will want to bring back sports to keep the subjects, well, subjugated (us and the unprivileged Left).
The Left wants to destroy civilization to bring about a new type of one. One where the elite live in splendor and the 'unwashed masses' are of little consequence.
You know, like it was in the Medieval Times...
“Every thing the Left touches they destroy.” (Dennis Prager)
I for one, vote for the new name: SWAMP CREATURES.
Tampa Bay Strawberries ... hmmm, easily squished?
Should keep the Redskin moniker, as in embarrassed for such lousy record over past decade+!
“change to ‘physically disabled’
No,no, it’s “differently abled” now. Didn’t you get the memo from your block warden SJW? Badthink, citizen. Report to the re-education camp.
They’ll pick an animal as the name. You can’t go wrong with an animal name.
Personally, I think they should go with one of the local vipers in the area. It would add so much local color, and no other team is named after a snake.
Black Rat Snake
Black Racer Snake
Red Bellied Snake
All are local to DC. Any of those would make a great name fo the team.
Gotta go, the re-ed van is here to pick me up! =:-)
So a name that 90 percent of Native Americans don’t find offensive, about which the most commonly expressed feeling is pride, with a logo designed by a Native American, has to go because the #woke mob is offended on behalf of these poor, suffering people who apparently aren’t bright enough to be offended on their own?
THAT, my friends, is white privilege.
