NWashington, D.C.
Washington City Paper Editor in Chief Mike Madden wants you to help rename our hometown football team for reasons I hope are obvious to you. Personally, I’m also of the opinion that Washington should part with the name. Submit your ideas to WCP, and if your submission is good enough, the paper’s own art department will draw up a logo!
Madden is also promising to use the winning submission as the City Paper’s stand-in for all future references to the team that hails from Landover.

    Oooooo. This is quite the cool endeavor! A bit dubious as to how much of an actual impact it could have, but WCP...

    Now mind you, this is highly unlikely to work; the current owner, Dan Snyder, has always refused to budge on the name....

    I’m gonna throw out an early challenge to the inevitable flood of people that want to keep the current name. Why?...

    I am a diehard Washington fan, but it has always been a disgraceful “mascot” that should have been changed decades ago.
