Redwolves is trending on Twitter.

That was my choice, but I'm starting to move towards just Wolves.

Time to rename the thread:

https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/29453631/source-redskins-announce-nickname-changed

Announcing that the redskin name will be retired but no replacement yet.

Update: USA Today says they will announce the new name today.

Quote
Statement From The Washington Redskins Football Team

On July 3rd, we announced the commencement of a thorough review of the team's 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.

I have this urge to rush over to Tysons to visit the Redskins team store outside Nordstrom, but then my practical side says, "What for? You aren't going to wear any of it anyway."

If this indicates that Danny has been humbled into submission, it'll be worth it.

Rumor is that the new name will be The D.C. Redskins. :)

I would guess that the Cleveland Indians are next. It’s actually quite simple for them; just use the really old Spiders name. Heck, all they would need to change is the front of the home uniforms that currently say Indians.

The Seminole tribe actually OK'd FSU's use of 'Seminoles'.

That was then. This is now. They will probably try and stop the chip first.

Also, the name Snyder wanted to use is currently involved in a trademark lawsuit

I read that tweet. Someone is going to make a crap ton of money because they trademarked a bunch of names (including Warriors, Red Wolves, Warriors).

He didn't get Wolves though. Washington Wolves sounds good.

It's probably Red Wolves, which is already involved in a trademark dispute.

Hey, maybe something good will come of it.

But apparently, there's a school that has Redwolves as their mascot, and another school wants to use Red Wolves. So now a judge has to decide if Redwolves covers Red Wolves, as well as if Red Wolves is a generic enough term that you can't trademark it (like Tigers or Bears).

Was it ever really Native Americans who were offended by the name, or a bunch of virtue signaling white people?
