Any fka Redskins fans on here? What do you do now?

I work with a guy who said his fandom ends TODAY, after 50 some years. I understand his frustration, but are others giving up on the team because of a mascot change? Even before the new mascot is revealed?

I am a Buccaneers fan, and I didn't quit when they went away from orange (although creamsicle orange) as their primary color. And I wouldn't leave if they changed it again, and the mascot, tomorrow. But that is not apples to apples, either. If the team decided on its own to rebrand, I would be cool with it. If they were forced at the point of a bayonet (or a step onto the plank) to change it, I might feel different. Still, it seems like the team resisted abandoning Redskins until there was no more wiggle room. Why take it out on the team? Thoughts?

I don't think a fan is giving up because of the mascot change! It is probably more because the team is giving into pressure because somebody somewhere is offended by everything on planet earth.

People often look to sports as the escape from stupid people and social issues. Now you can't escape them at all.

Charles Barkley said yesterday basically that is sports continues down this road, the will lose their fans. The NFL took a huge hit over the last few years, regardless of what they are trying to put out to the public.

The NFL ratings were great last year. They were up 2 years in a row.

NFL is down from 2010-2015 viewers, so nice try on saying ratings are great.

They were up 2 years in a row and the ratings are great. 2015-2016 were just better. They are gaining viewership the last 2 years though from 3 years ago. Last year was the most watched since 2016. It is down 1% from 2016. The ratings are still great. Sorry it doesn't fit your narrative, but the NFL is thriving. The NFL draft had a record 55 million viewers over 3 days this year smashing all records.

Keep using statistics incorrectly, results are down from 2010-2015 and with population growth, that is a real decline. You can keep up with your false narrative but it is not going to hold true for the future. Of course NFL draft results were up, no competion with real live sports, no NBA, no NHL, no MLB


my gut emotion would probably be the same...

but if you were truly a vested fan then you'll eventually come back. And I agree, not like they have much choice. What stinks is the Redskins are one of the originals and I hate seeing that history die out. Hopefully the can compromise on something related and keep the same color scheme. I believe someone on here said just go by the Warriors and use the old spear logo. That would be fair to all involved. Or be more politically correct and go by the Washington Natives (referring to Native Americans).


I think they should change it to "Red Hens"

Also, I grew up in NE Florida as a Dolphins fan. I never got into the BUCs, but they need to bring out those Creamsicles more often.

I think I gave up on the Snyder 3-13ers years ago. The lack of awareness over a "name" for such a long time just shows the lack for integrity from the upper levels.

Plus most old fans (such as myself) always called the team "washington" but I guess that is baseball now.

It was the only time Spurrier coached a team I followed and he is still my nemesis. (First Clemson game was in Durham, attend CU from 06-12.... uggg


Of course, Dan snyder is going to screw this up more

Have not watched the NFL since the kneeling began so the Washington team can bow to the socialist mob if they think that will satisfy them (which it won’t). I suggest they rename them the Forskins because they will be covering for a bunch of Di**heads. Just my opinion.

Yeah, skins especially when they were losing... bad to Philly during the snyder years. But during the JKC era, it was just Washington. If you were talking about another sport it was the Bullets/Wiz (never really acknowledged them as being in DC) .... DC/United, or O's ... eventually the Nats - which is "washington" now.


FxBG and Palisades myself.

Snyder killing the team has done more for me to not watch them anymore than this name change.

I hope Mr. Snyder holds off on providing a new name this season. It would be interesting to see how everybody handles that.

consensus name of their choosing like what is talked about in this article. But its gotta be more succinct than "Code Talkers". But i do like the idea. Use the same tribute to native americans but less of a slang like Redskin. I'm good with that idea.

Heard from a reliable source this will be it. I think it’s a bit too long.

Stop watching NFL. I’d much rather watch random college games than any nfl game anyways.
