    Seems to me that the answer was sitting there all along:


    Washington Senators.

    Would be a great alternative. Only thing is that the MLB team used it so maybe they don't want to retread.

    Yea, but it was a football name, too. Just play that angle up and run with it.

    In the final analysis, I don't think the Redskins will be changing their name.

    Letter from Snyder to Redskins fans (don't think they are going to chance the name and I don't blame them either)

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/...46b_story.html


    To Everyone in our Washington Redskins Nation:As loyal fans, you deserve to know that everyone in the Washington Redskins organization -- our players, coaches and staff -- are truly privileged to represent this team and everything it stands for. We are relentlessly committed to our fans and to the sustained long-term success of this franchise.
    That’s why I want to reach out to you -- our fans -- about a topic I wish to address directly: the team name, “Washington Redskins.” While our focus is firmly on the playing field, it is important that you hear straight from me on this issue. As the owner of the Redskins and a lifelong fan of the team, here is what I believe and why I believe it.
    Like so many of you, I was born a fan of the Washington Redskins. I still remember my first Redskins game.
    Most people do. I was only six, but I remember coming through the tunnel into the stands at RFK with my father, and immediately being struck by the enormity of the stadium and the passion of the fans all around me.
    I remember how quiet it got when the Redskins had the ball, and then how deafening it was when we scored. The ground beneath me seemed to move and shake, and I reached up to grab my father’s hand. The smile on his face as he sang that song ... he’s been gone for 10 years now, but that smile, and his pride, are still with me every day.
    That tradition -- the song, the cheer -- it mattered so much to me as a child, and I know it matters to every other Redskins fan in the D.C. area and across the nation.
    Our past isn’t just where we came from -- it’s who we are.
    As some of you may know, our team began 81 years ago -- in 1932 -- with the name “Boston Braves.” The following year, the franchise name was changed to the “Boston Redskins.” On that inaugural Redskins team, four players and our Head Coach were Native Americans. The name was never a label. It was, and continues to be, a badge of honor.
    In 1971, our legendary coach, the late George Allen, consulted with the Red Cloud Athletic Fund located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota and designed our emblem on the Redskins helmets. Several years later, Coach Allen was honored by the Red Cloud Athletic Fund. On the wall at our Ashburn, Virginia, offices is the plaque given to Coach Allen -- a source of pride for all of us. “Washington Redskins is more than a name we have called our football team for over eight decades. It is a symbol of everything we stand for: strength, courage, pride, and respect -- the same values we know guide Native Americans and which are embedded throughout their rich history as the original Americans.
    I’ve listened carefully to the commentary and perspectives on all sides, and I respect the feelings of those who are offended by the team name. But I hope such individuals also try to respect what the name means, not only for all of us in the extended Washington Redskins family, but among Native Americans too.

    The Cardinals did it, or they could do like a Bears, Cubs thing, and be the Washington Congressmen.

    Ironic that it comes from the guy who screams anti-Semitism at the slightest critique.

    Can't have it both ways Danny boy.

    Warriors is the clear favorite in the clubhouse locally in my experience.

    This concept, Penatagon/Should Stripes + Warriors is not horrific. It could use some fine tuining, but isn't half bad.

    I like that one.
