The team gets to keep its history and tradition with the name they originally had in Boston in 1932. A positive and affable ode to the Native Americans, the nickname has held up in baseball, why not football?
Possibly the most famous group of fans in the country, the 'hogs' have been a staple at games for decades.
A dedication to the lies, deceit and corruption that's ruled D.C. for, well, who knows how many years? Can you imagine the fun that would come of this? Let's get horny!
Some Christian supporters have brought up they're still upset their right to display nativity scenes -- in some cases -- has been taken away. Therefore why steal something precious from another group; a group of football fans? Here you get to integrate the word 'natives' with something just as meaningful. Can you imagine the hoopla around Christmas time each year!? I would love to see a baby Jesus mascot following each touchdown!
The Piscataway tribe inhabited the current day Washington D.C. region long before the whiteskins, er, excsue me, white man, entered the region. This is a specific honorary name to the Natives who still celebrate their rich history in the area.
What the heck is a 'Red?' Who knows. But Cincinnati has been able to hide the definition for over one hundred years. By removing the word 'skins' from the name, the nickname becomes innocent and tradition continues.
Plain? Yes. But again, upholds tradition. Plus, there is no other professional sports team in the country with the name already.
