President Barack Obama recently stated his case for the Redskins changing their team name due to its history as a racial slur against Native Americans.Obama also points out that the fans and team owners are not intentionally offending Native Americans.However, he does point out that Native Americans feel strongly about it and that should outweigh any fan attachment to the team name. 1. Warriors - Very little will need to be adjusted here. Probably similar Native American uniforms, same fight song, same colors, just not Golden State's mascot- "Thunder". 2. Crabbers - Because Landover, MD, formerly Raljon, MD, is about a 30 minute drive from the Chesapeake Bay, what better team name than the Crabbers? Most Skins fans love crabs, Old Bay seasoning, and a Natty Boh to go along with it... Why not name the DC Football team the "Crabbers" after the popular Mid Atlantic crustacean? 3. Red Tails - This nickname derives from the famous Tuskeegee Airmen fighter pilots from WWII. Although it is always a good thing to honor the Tuskeegee Airmen, the Redskins may want to shy away from anything with racial origins - good or bad. 4. Federals - This is the old USFL team name. Why not turn the key on an already established brand and DC Football team name? One thing they'd have to change would be the ugly team colors of red and green. Even big dumb football players should know not to combine red and green, aka Christmas colors, for any outfit. Yikes. 5. Soldiers - With Washington, DC, as the central hotbed for Military intelligence, operations, and politics, naming the team the "Soliders" would be fun and fitting way to honor our fallen troops from previous wars. Besides, it could finally justify camoflauge NFL clothing.
