Could go with spear chuckers. Save the helmet logo. Won't solve the offensive part but it'll get the Indians off their back
Step away from the keyboard, dude.
For teams like the Florida State Seminoles, and Illinois fighting Illini, and North Dakota fighting Sioux I see no problem, especially when those tribes have come out and actually say they see it as a sign of respect.
A team like the Redskins though? Yeah..that ought to be changed.
Freaking liberals crying rivers again.
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
Smh. Yeah lets make them change their names 100+ years later.
Then there was that whole pain in the ass with North Dakota because only one tribe gave them permission and the other never said anything.
ITT phaggots are jelly of our school representative and traditions.
North Dakota is being forced to change.
I look forward to Ole Miss changing their mascot to "The Klansmen"

I agree with this. If you have a relationship with the tribe like FSU that's cool, but Redskins is insane.
No one is jealous of some retard riding a horse.

PETA gets really up in arms about Gamecocks every few years.
I stand corrected, thanks for clarifying. It seems they got the overwhelming approval of one tribe, and didn't get response from the other. The NCAA is requiring them to get approval from both. Foolish if you ask me, considering the people who brought it up more than likely are neither from North Dakota, nor members of the Sioux tribe.
If they were calling themselves the Fightin' alcoholic Sioux I could see where that would be offensive, but they chose that mascot because of the Sioux's ability to hunt bison; which just so happens to be the mascot of their chief rival, NDSU. Seems to paint them in a very respectful light, not derogatory at all.
I love PETA..stands for People Eating Tasty Animals, right?
Off topic, but thanks for introducing me to the Drake equation yesterday, ya bastard. Took me down the wiki rabbit hole til 5 am this morning. Link, after link... Didn't get into work until 4 today. Where I'll now be for the next multiple hours.
Says the tiger, War Tiger? School is so dumb they can't pick a mascot. Bo knows everything but how to spell Bo.
Considering I got 100 volunteer hours at a wildlife rehab center that had eagles that isn't the best thing to say to me.
Get back to me once you learn how gut and clean a rabbit/rat to feed to a eagle.
As a lifelong Redskins fan my buddy told me Dan Synder owns the rights to the name Warriors
The Washington Warriors sounds so gheyyy
I love the name but I hope we won't ever have to change the logo
It just sucks when the team you've cheered for your whole life (the Redskins in my case) is going to have to change its nickname. That is especially weird in pro sports. That's such an iconic name and symbol that I hate to see it go. I know it can be viewed as offensive, but it seems pretty harmless to me. Maybe I'm way off base, and I'm definitely biased.
Cheering for the "Washington Warriors" just seems so fvcking stupid. I think I would just stick to calling them the Redskins. I think most fans would too, which seems to defeat the purpose of getting the name changed.
Agree I don't get the big deal in all my life I never never heard of someone calling another person a Redskin it's such a dead term..,but we live in a whiny PC pussification society
Wow Nova you are truly an idiot
What if they were the Washington Darkies..would that be cool?
Are Italian or Turkish or Greek Americans pissed about the USC Trojans nickname ?
