Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

I like Braves also because I like having an American Indian identity but Braves might be problematic because some of the hard core objectors don't like any Native American reference and even if it passed muster for the moment the team would risk having the goalpost moved in the future.
Other thoughts include Washington; Revolution or Revolutionaries as another poster suggested, Rebels, Defiance, Independence, or Freedom. For those who think the name should reflect how much of the country feels about DC maybe one of these should get consideration; Hogs, Pork, Liars, Tyrants, Wastrels, Backscratchers, Corruption, Demigods, Logrollers, Majority, or Incumbents.
