I am BLOWN away that the greed machine called the NFL is bowing to demands and changing the name of the racist The Washington “Redskins”.
Corporate sponsors, including FedEx, Bank of America, Nike, and PepsiCo, have been calling on the team to change the name, which is considered a slur against Native Americans. Owner Daniel Snyder and Coach Ron Rivera have been working together to select a new name, and on July 4, Rivera said there were two names they both liked, and they planned to discuss the possible replacements with Native American and military organizations.
Multiple outlets are saying the name wont be released till later because it’s still tired up with trademark problems.
That said, the good ol’ internet leaks the deets and say the new name will be The Washington Red Wolves. Although there is some talk about “The Warriors”.
Dwayne Haskens, a player for Washington, tweeted out this mock up of the name.
This is the best total package out there right now. This is the perfect mix of old tradition and new tradition. The historic “R” with a new Redwolves spin.
This should be on everybody’s TL because this is heat ? pic.twitter.com/LhQLPDiqLi
