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

I just find it hard to believe that if the official name is changed to something other than the Redskins that we would still play a song that uses that name considering all the issues it has created so far.

Also, we can't compare any other teams to this situation because ours is very unique in the fact that it may (or may not) be a racial term.

well - let's put it another way for you negative nannies :twisted:

there is more chance of us changing the words to 'Hail to the Redskins' than there is of us changing the name of the Washington Redskins - it ain't happening :roll:

get over it - there's nothing to any of this - we can put anything we want out there - geez :D
It's taken years for the Redskins to become as bad as we are - there is no way that the team is going to be consistently competitive in 2016
we'll win some games but it will take years to be good again

wrong .... again :lol:

I was referring to the posts about 'keeping' the song ... I was not referring to your position on the team name

the fact is - nothing is changing so we're just having fun here and some are trying to make out like it's a 'possibility'

the Washington Redskins are not changing the team name



and





no matter what .... we're keeping the fight song :lol:

Obviously, we're keeping the name for the forseeable future, but we were engaged in a what if scenario. If the team changed it's name, no way would we retain the fight song version with the word Redskins in it. NO WAY! :twisted:

Yeah, I don't see Snyder changing the name. That said, if he is more-or-less forced to, I think he should change it to the Washington Red Tape.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.

I'd love to see you or someone with you, try and get the Washington Redskins marching band to stop playing at games played by the Washington Hillbillies or whomever they are - that band is staying in the gear and playing Hail to the Redskins after every "Hillbilly" TD - guaranteed :twisted:

It's pretty simple, if the team name changed, the owner (be it Danny or someone else) would have the lyrics changed to accompany the new name and theme. The band just plays the music. I'm sure the fans would sing the old lyrics anyway. But the band attends the games at the owner's pleasure, and they would find themselves out on the street if they didn't comply with the organization's wishes.

I really think the "Washington Algoncin-Delaware Redskins" Would work.

it tells the haters "take your small little mind to an O.E.D. (Oxford English Dictionary - the definitive word on the English language) and let the truth chain thy tongue".

it isn't really a name change, so we're not buckling. It's an extension, for clarification.

it preserves our RIGHT to call our team what we choose.

it preserves our logo and name (can you see commentators constantly adding the extra syllables?)

it presents new marketing opportunities with 'extended name/ alternative logo' crap

it legally staves off attempts to misrepresent our name as offensive

but. . .

if the world sucked enough that we lost our beloved identity . . .
if the whiners and haters stripped us of the right to sing our beloved fight song when we score . . .
<I'm sorry Sir/Ma'am, Mr. Mara has instructed us to escort you and your party from the stadium>

would that negate the deal, all those years ago,that put Dallas in the NFC EAST? :-s

I'd have to say seriously though... The Braves is the most logical answer. Back to our roots!
