They Are Talking About A Name Change and I think this one works:The Washington Redskins become the Washington Generals(Washington Generals, GO WITH IT!!!)[Braves and Indians will be next to Go]/Ron Rivera speaks out/Cleveland manager says we need to change our nickname

I have seen it in more than one place…Get rid of the Washington Redskins name and have the Washington Redskins become the Washington Generals….

Sounds good to me…Can you think of anything better???

It worked for a while for the New Jersey Generals of the USFL, and there was the Washington Generals, the team that used to lose every night to the Harlem Globetrotters…

We have heard this talk before, about the Washington Redskins becoming the Washington Generals, and why not, they could pull this off before the start of the new 2020 season if they went to work now, and took care of the details…

The Washington Redskins become the Washington Generals and it is an idea whose time has come…

It has never really been discussed previously like we are here today, and it just seemed like the perfect time to “Bring Up The Generals”….

This is the Fourth of July Weekend and General Washington(George) would be proud and very happy that we are looking to commemorate his group of Generals that led our nation….General Washington, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, General Douglas MacArthur, Ulysses S. Grant, General Omar Bradley, General George Patton, General Alexander Haig, General Colin Powell and many other Four-Star Generals, that were historical leaders in our US Military…..
(Make this the synthesis for calling the team in our nation’s capitol, the Washington Generals.)

Lets make this change happen….

The Washington Redskins become the Washington Generals….

They can make this name change happen before the start of the 2020 NFL season…Here’s hoping that it gets started before President’s Day 2021….

The Washington Generals, and that’s the way it is, and that’s the best in sports today….If you combine the closings of Walter Cronkite, and Charlie Harville, you know it has to be good and hopefully not just too good to be true…

Make it happen….

The Washington Generals

**********And for our next trick, we are going to have to come up with new names for the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians…Must happen…Can’t turn the Redskins around, without taking the Braves and the Indians down the same road.**********

  1. Hearing names like Redtails, WarHogs and others…

    The Generals would be the best, and just forget about the Washington Senators…

    Washington Generals…..

    They can be your ‘lovable losers’, when they lose, that is….

  2. I like the Generals but how about in this age of delicate flowers they would more appropriately be named the Cherry Blossoms.

  3. The Onion has an article where they change to the DC Redskins. Another great suggestion.

  4. When the Washington Senators moved to Texas, they became the Texas Rangers…Nothing fancy, just a fairly plain name, but very practical…

    When Houston lost their NFL team to Tennessee, due to the Bud Adams family move, Houston later on got another NFL team, and team is now known as the Houston Texans..

    Nothing fancy, or outlandish for Houston, just the Houston Texans, and it has stuck, and served them(Houston) well…

    If Washington changes their name to the Washington Generals, then that would be a good basic name for the NFL football team….Even the Washington Federals would be a basic name that would fit…

    The Washington Generals, or the Washington Federals would seem to be fine….

    The Washington Redtails sounds like something with a Red tail, or Red rear end…There is not enough knowledgeable history about the Redtails being affiliated/associated with the Tuskegee Airmen to make the Washington Redtails work…

    That is my opinion on all of this and others may differ, but I feel like I have laid out a pretty good game plan here for the Washington Redskins, and their need for a name change…

  5. They can keep the name and here’s how. Use the yellow “R” on the helmets ,like the one they used in the early 70s. And the mascot can be the redskin potatoes. There you go!

  6. Redskin Potatoes…Now there is a novel idea…

    Still like the Generals…And this looks like this is the best time to make the change…

    And the Atlanta Braves have to go, and so do the Cleveland Indians…

    Redskins gone soon, Braves and Indians on the way out too….

    Southern Guilford High School had the forward thinking to get rid of the Indians name several years ago, and a good move on their part….

    Time for changes…..

  7. Washington Redskins coach Ron Rivera says he has been working with owner Dan Snyder on a new team nickname in recent weeks.

    “If we get it done in time for the season, it would be awesome,” Rivera told The Washington Post on Saturday.

    “We came up with a couple of names — two of them I really like,” Rivera told the newspaper. He didn’t reveal the names.

    Washington is likely to change its name, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter, after the team announced Friday it will “undergo a thorough review” of the nickname amid renewed pressure to change it, given the national focus on human rights and social justice after the death of George Floyd in Minnesota.

  8. CLEVELAND — Cleveland manager Terry Francona won’t sidestep the hot-button topic any longer. He believes the Indians need to change their contentious nickname.

    “I think it’s time to move forward,” Francona said Sunday.

    Francona’s comments came two days after the Indians, amid a nationwide movement to erase racially insensitive symbols, released a statement saying the organization is “committed to engaging our community and appropriate stakeholders to determine the best path forward with regard to our team name.”

  9. Yes, Kansas City Chiefs, Florida State Seminoles, UNC Pembroke Braves, and more changes will become necessary…

    Redskins
    Braves
    Indians
    Chiefs
    Seminoles
    even Warriors, those names are on the ‘Chopping Block’…..
