    Yeah, they’re the Minnesota Twins now.

    Washington Senators also used to be an MLB team.

    Ditto, used to watch with my Dad back in the C4 days when it first came on. I remember a line from Tony Kornheisser(sp?) that 'They should keep the name but change to logo to a potato'.

    I think the colour scheme has to stay whatever happens, it's too iconic. I'd be more gutted to lose that than the name tbh as that's the reason I chose them as my team (Closest match to Aston Villa which is my footy team). Buuuuuut, I could see how the colours could be linked to the name so might need changing for the cleanest of breaks. I see Washington Warriors going around a lot and I wouldn't be averse to as they could probably go back to the helmet with the spear on it, but again is that enough of a change? Then there's the possibility of going with a name that reflects one of the indigenous tribes of the DC area, much like the Florida State Seminoles do(who have a very similar colour scheme and logo to the Redskins). I've also see Redhawks and Redwings mentioned but I think I'd prefer Redhawks from that but then that would lump in with all the other 'bird' teams. tl;dr I really don't know what name I would chose but I think there's a way to make a change but keep the identity. It would also buy some much, much needed good publicity for the team.
  7. You’ve not noticed it before. I also hadn’t noticed it until my daughter found it.

    FedEx, Nike and other sponsors now putting pressure on Snyder to change the Redskins’ name. This will probably finally do it as he can bang his chest and say he’ll “never change” the name, but as we all know money talks. Seems a good way to do it without losing face to the entrenched fans; “don’t want to but without the money the team will disappear”? As a lifetime fan it will be weird not having the name but let’s face it, it really does need to go, now more than ever.
  9. Aye, we were up to 9th with four minutes to go. If we could have even held on for the draw it could have been massive.
  10. This is really my hope, don't risk the stars. We might sneak a 1-0 win on current form.
  11. You're right but having seen how lacklustre Villa are playing I just can't see us picking up more than 4 points and that is a best case scenario. I was hoping it would be between us and Wham on the past day of the season, winner takes all. Can see Watford getting points off Norwich, Newcastle and West Ham at least. If Villa has shown even a modicum of fight in the relegation battle I wouldn't be so resigned but no one looks like they give the slightest shit we're going down...Again!
  12. Yup. I think The only chance Villa had was somehow overhauling a poor looking West Ham. Fucked now. Can’t wait to be back in the Championship only this time without our best players. Well played all.
