Wanna keep the fight song and logo? Fine: call them the Warriors.

Hail to the Warriors!
Hail Victory!
Braves on the warpath,
Fight for ol' DC!

I admit, that "Braves on the warpath" line is a bit sketchy, but it's a work in progress.

It could be worse, though; they could have the caricature logo like Cleveland's baseball team...yikes!

Has ESPN banned the Chief Wahoo logo?

I don't know; I don't really watch ESPN anymore.

Just read article ABOUT Washington, (meaning NOT using the word wouldn't look weird). And a few comments STILL complain! *SMH*

RE: Use of the word "Redskins"
How hard would it be for them to change the name to Warriors or Redhawks??

Is the name Redskins offensive? it's debatable...

...but what I see is a stubborn owner that doesn't want to budge.

Maybe they could take Jay Leno's suggestion for the Wizards (nee Bullets) and drop "Washington".
