I thought it was based on the Tuskegee Airmen.
I'm definitely not an American Historian though lol.
That would be Red Tail.
I'm fully on board with the Red Tails name. I like the history behind it.
Just hope Washington gets creative with their name.
25 years years ago I thought the Jaguars and Panthers nicknames were meh.
So...moving the red man out, and moving the black man in.
Yeah. Seems like something we'd do.
Why 40+ year old men should not play football?

Brees had X-rays, CAT scans and has been seen by doctors every other day this week. They have now confirmed eight rib fractures on his left side and three on the right. That’s more than double the total from testing performed on Monday that revealed five rib fractures.
I think Redskin is considered derogatory and racist while Red Tails is revered for what it stood for during the war no? Seems like a decent step in the right direction for such a terrible franchise with poor recent history.
Or maybe we all have to find an issue with it. Who knows.
No matter what is chosen you can be sure 50 percent will be pissed off.
I think Foreskins fits them well...owned by a Jewish guy. Oy vey!
Red Tails is a cool name, and cool heritage. But perhaps you gotta keep the Native American aspect of it. Besides. They aren’t the ones complaining about the name (largely) anyways.
No matter what they pick I imagine it’s gonna piss people off. Maybe Snyder should have stood pat and told the Blue Checkmark crybabies to suck his balls?
That’s gotta hurt.
Dictionary defined slur specific to the red man, yes.
As far as how actual redskins feel about the word, or about a football team calling itself the Redskins...well...
If "not offensive" won the popular vote, "offensive" might just win via electoral collage. They're native americans, after all.
Frankly, I'd rather Washington be the Redskins than the WFT. Genericism of that sort should offend us all.
Correct again. Top marks.
German fighters weren't the only thing those guys shot down. Some goofy fucking beliefs took heavy fire, time and again. Having an NFL team named after them would be a well deserved honor.
And, compared existing team names like the Browns, Cardinals, Patriots, Dolphins, etc, Red Tails isn't bad. I don't love it. But, it ain't my team. No reason I'd need to.
I suppose if we're going to, once again, repeat the cycle of pushing the red man out while bringing the black man in, this is the way to do it.
But, we are still kinda doing it.
I just wish I had it so good that getting offended on someone else's behalf seemed like the sort of hobby I might enjoy. Folks today are queer beyond their years.
Arkansas State already traveled that lame road.
I am for Continentals. Respect the American Revolution for once.
shit im not convinced we can beat the Falcons either next week. I don't think we've ever beat Ryan.
Am I the only one completely opinionless about Washington? I don’t care at all what they name that team.
So your opinion is you don't have an opinion?
