It had been the organization's moniker since 1933
The Washington Redskins announced Monday they will change their team name and logo after about 87 years of using it, in the wake of corporate and public pressure to ditch the moniker over racial connotations.
The Redskins did not announce a new name.
On July 3rd, we announced the commencement of a thorough review of the teams name. That review has begun in earnest. As part of this process, we want to keep our sponsors, fans and community apprised of our thinking as we go forward.
Today, we are announcing we will be retiring the Redskins name and logo upon completion of this review.
Dan Snyder and Coach Rivera are working closely to develop a new name and design approach that will enhance the standing of our proud, tradition rich franchise and inspire our sponsors, fans and community for the next 100 years.

Washington Nancy Boys
Go the prince route. Change the name to a bizarre symbol, then make broadcasters refer to them as the team formerly known as the Redskins.”
And they still suck.
There can only be one name....Swamp Rats.
Go with “Washington Bullets” - totally appropriate for the times, and Baltimore isn’t using it any more.
How about the “Not Washington Redskins?”
You are insulting rodents. Im telling PETA on you.
“The Washington Post did not publish the full results of the survey, so we do not know what percentage of respondents offered each response, but regarding the word proud, the Washington Post reports that most of the surveys respondents felt that way.
These results echo those of a 2016 poll that found that only 9 percent of Native Americans described themselves as offended by the Redskins name, while 90 percent said it did not bother them....”
If they are going to change the name, I think the Washington Potomacs would be good. In this case, the name would honor the Army of the Potomac. There is already a logo that can be used:
DC Street Painters
How about Washington Quislings?
Has a nice ring to it....
How about the LGBTQ’s (But to be fair the order of the letters have to be rotated weekly.) Why do the L’s always get to be first?
this is quickly becoming the silliest country on earth
and it greatly saddens me
