    Washington Announces Temporary Franchise Name

    Honestly, I've just been treating the 'Football Team' as an optional extension. Over here our local soccer teams are 'Birmingham City Football Club' or 'Aston Villa Football Club'. (Not that I support either, I'm not a soccer person!) But we only ever refer to them as Birmingham (of The Blues)...

    Washington Announces Temporary Franchise Name

    Those organisations that win, generally set a tone from the top down. Our tone was... Bruce Allen and his 'amazing culture' and hence a decade of amazing futility. I don't know what Rivera will bring, but I like his approach thus far. His reputation is a good one. Now if Snyder can just...

    Washington Announces Temporary Franchise Name

    Don't doubt it Bulldog, but I'm simply talking about the now. The whole name thing and the uniforms SCREAMS no nonsense to me. It's so totally unfussy. And lately, Synder had been nowhere to be seen. He's off hiding in the bushes and letting Rivera take all the bullets. I know we all want to...

    Washington Announces Temporary Franchise Name

    Maybe it's because i'm a Brit...but I actually kind of dig the new temporary name. Over here we're used to our teams (Cricket, Soccer, Rugby etc) only going by the city name generally, with the occassional 'United' or 'City' thrown in. Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Birmingham...

    The Bombshell.

    Snyder is in an odd position that is arguably of his own creation. You're right, Bulldog, he DOES need to keep a low profile. But, counter to that, I believe he needs to be seen taking an active stand against this with more than just hollow press statements. Mark Cuban was right, Snyder...

    The Bombshell.

    Phew, this is quite a thread to read through! I hadn't commented in here really as yet, as I wanted to take a while to compose my thoughts on it all. It's sad to see that something so reprehensible to me at a core level has had such a profound effect on our little corner of the internet. That...

    If Snyder Goes, Does it Change Your Perspective?

    Now admittedly I don't know much about it... but didn't the NBA have a hand in forcing Sterling out of the Clippers Franchise for bringing the league into disrepute or something? I seem to remember them banning Sterling from entering any Clippers facility etc. I know the aspects were different...

    Redskins Name Change - On Turning the Page

    That's the point I was clumsily trying to make in my post. LOL This is such a huge global shift in the peoples attitudes, that the big companies like Pepsi, Nike, Amazon and Fedex can't afford NOT to look like theyre doing something. Image is everything to them. This is no longer pandering to...

    Redskins Name Change - On Turning the Page

    The name change was always inevitable, and as much as we hate it, it has to be now. No matter how many polls or opinion pieces were published justifying it, the name was ALWAYS going to controversial The societal shift isn't just isolated to the Redskins, or even to the US. This is a global...

    On Taking a Stand and Redskins Fandom

    I'd just like to echo the sentiments being show to you Boone! I have a little experience in the troubles and time it takes to manage a website, my own takes a good few hours a week to sort out and I don't have a Forum! LOL As for the name RedWolves... I have to admit I kinda like it. (I...

    Thanks Boone, Wasn't looking for sympathy per se, just justifying why I'm not screaming at the sky about this change. My mind is elsewhere. Honestly, if I think about it, I think rather than being angry about it... I'm just sad. I'm looking around my desk as I work and there's Skin's...

    THis is the poster FYI. Anyone one else have this one? Dates back to 1983 I think.

    On Taking a Stand and Redskins Fandom

    Tagging on to something Hog Fever said above... I accept that the name change is coming. I've come to peace with it and I'll still support the franchise going forwards. The timing of this over the past few weeks has coincided with my Dad being diagnosed with terminal prostate, bone and lung...

    On Taking a Stand and Redskins Fandom

    Love the OP Boone, pretty much sums up where I am on the subject. I'm also have a foot in the Henry camp, in that I've been surprised by how little this truly bothers me. I've been a Redskins fan since Superbowl XVIII and through that time I've seen players come and go. Coaches come and go...
