Re-Name the Washington Redskins Contest

Cross-posted by Gary Fouse

Yes, folks, with this latest loss, it is time to re-name Washington's pitiful football team. As you know, the team has been named the Redskins for many moons now-going back to when they were in Boston. (Yes, they were in Boston once.) However, the name is not politically correct, and pressure has been building for years to change the name and team logo. In my previous post, I suggested the name "All-Stars", but obviously, that won't do. Perhaps something that symbolizes the city of Washington. I have some suggestions. With each suggestion, I will include a suitable picture which would go on their helmet and other equipment gear as their official team logo. The first suggestion that gets 3 votes wins. Here we go.

1 The Washington Porkers

Either this....

or this.

2 The Washington Stealers

Same pronunciation, different spelling, different meaning.

3 The Washington Elephants

Silly me. There are no elephants in Washington.

4 The Washington Donkeys

Perhaps a bit ubiquitous. Everywhere you look, you see donkeys.

5 The Washington Obamas

Strange name, but the logo is great. Hell, it elected a US president!

6 The Washington Staffers

Who else can get tickets to the games?

7 We could bring back the Washington Generals.

8 How about we bring back the Washington Senators?

Looks scarier than the Raiders' logo, if you ask me.

Or we could just sell the team to Rush Limbaugh and let him re-name the team.

  1. I vote for Rush Limbaugh!

    How about the Washington Stimulators, Washington Pork Bellies?
