Not to hijack the thread....
GreenFaith, what new name for the Skins has your vote?
Hey Burgundy and Gold Brother -
I am a bit shocked that our team is FINALLY going through with this...and it appears as if our new coach is at the helm which I'm proud of.
My vote would be The Washington Red Tails - after the Tuskegee Airman.
But I've seen 2 or three others that would suit the team just fine.
The funny thing is that after reading some Twitter comments on this there ARE some fans that STILL want to somehow KEEP the heritage of the Redskins somehow - without the name, of course.
I honestly don't see how that could be done, TBH....once this name goes away I have no idea of ANY "Safe" name that could be used in place of the Redskins but YET still honor Native Americans.....
Anyways here's hoping that this lifts a curse from the team, LOL......if not we can always watch our Celtics Brothers and Sisters here on the blog writhe in pain from Cam Newton...supposedly, he is getting tired of the "Humble" talk already...https://www.nfl.com/news/patriots-qb-cam-newton-i-m-getting-tired-of-being-humble
"I'm getting tired of being humble now," Newton exclaimed.
"I'm really a killa. I'm really a killa," he said. "You hear me? I'm getting tired of all this humble s----. Because, when you're humble, they start taking advantage of you. When you don't say nothing, they start taking advantage of you. But the hyenas can be doing all of this, the elephants can be doing all of what they do, the giraffes, the antelopes, the chimpanzees, even the gorilla. But there's one (expletive) animal in the jungle and when he roars, everything stops. And I'm about to (expletive) roar."
I'd guess that as long as New England WINS I'm sure Cam can roar, yell, scream - whatever - in NE. But if the LOSING starts then I'll be doing this
"IF" things go south in WAS I'll have a distraction. Thankfully I don't think they will, anymore.
