That's brilliant. Where did you come up with that clever idea?

And since the Potato is NATIVE to the AMERICAS, it honors the cultural contributions of the natives.
Bullshit. The Irish invented the potato. :tothehand:

So did they ever ACTUALLY announce a new name? Or just that they're retiring the old one?

Not that I have heard. Just that they are in the process of developing a new logo and name.
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/washingto ... -mccaulay/

Washington owner Dan Snyder and new head coach Ron Rivera will "develop a new name and design" approach, the team said Monday. However, Martin McCaulay, an actuary from Alexandria, Virginia, jumped on the speculation of a name change way before the announcement.

McCaulay has filed numerous trademark claims in the last six years for potential monikers for the Washington football team. A search by CBS News in the United States Patent and Trademark Office's database found at least seven names that have been registered in just the last month alone. Among them include the Washington Red Wolves, Washington Redtails, Washington Monuments, Washington Americans and Washington Veterans. The idea, presumably, would be to sell the name to Snyder should Washington choose one of the registered names.

Tweets out of some DC reporters (including NBC/Fox) is the Washington Post is about to drop a bomb soon, and that bomb is a connection between Epstein and Snyder (and other execs).

I hope it's not true, but Snyder essentially trafficked Washington cheerleaders before so I wouldn't be surprised if it is.

Beth Wilkinson - one of the most prominent criminal trial lawyers in the country - was just hired by Washington.

Something is about to go down soon.

Redtails and Monuments are the best there but Monuments can't work - the Monument is phallic and represents toxic masculinity.

I worked with an ex-Redskins cheerleader in Annapolis. She was smoking. She was also smart as a whip and took no shit from anybody. I guarantee she wasn't part of any trafficking. She would have told Snyder to go fuck himself.

I think he tried to pimp them out at parties.

Will the NFL force Snyder to sell if he gets wrapped up in the Epstein affair (novel by Robert Ludlum)? They might develop a good team with competent ownership.

Since the hockey team is the Caps, perhaps the football team could be the Poorly Managed Salary Caps?

Too wordy?

Baltimore Bullets was one of the all-time great franchise names.
