Alexandria, Virginia (PRWEB) May 18, 2014
The Washington Redskins gridiron football team should change their name. The most popular new names are Bravehearts, Pigskins, and Warriors. A Kickstarter campaign will allow backers to support the name change by purchasing apparel, cups and mugs, foam hands, and footballs with the name of their choice.
The Washington Bravehearts is the most likely new name. It is original and a popular choice. Pigskins sounds like Redskins and is also a reference to the offensive line known as the Hogs that helped the team win three Super Bowls. A football is called a pigskin because they used to be made from the hides of domestic pigs. The Washington Warriors could use "Washington Warriors - Come out to play-ayyy!" as a stadium chant, based on a line from the movie The Warriors.
Supporters of a name change include President Obama, Senator Harry Reid, Senator John McCain, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, Redskins Pro Bowl defensive back DeAngelo Hall, Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, the District of Columbia City Council, the State Legislatures of Maryland and New York, comedian Lewis Black, and the Oneida Indian Nation. President Obama said “If I were the owner of the team and I knew that there was a name of my team — even if it had a storied history — that was offending a sizeable group of people, I’d think about changing it.”
