    Not that that's right.

    The Atlanta minor league team of yore being called the "Atlanta Crackers" is one thing; a Dallas team called the "Assassins" would be another.

    "Washington Wizards" is as lame as "Tennessee Titans," unfortunately. If it were not so, renaming the football team the "Warlocks" to give D.C. the coherence of Detroit's or Chicago's franchises would be cool.

    How about calling the teams the "Washington Warmongers" (basketball) and the "Washington Warlords" (football)? Ooh, and since they seem to hate "Senators," how about "Warcrafters," since nerds love baseball? (I guess I've shown my sport affinity toward football - but give me a break, I live in a town with the second largest college football stadium in the nation. :)

      to call themselves the n-word (they are being ironic). But if a white person called them the n-word, they'd whip some ass. And who could blame them?

      "Redskins" is patently offensive and does not need to be embraced! It needs to be eliminated as the name of an NFL franchise.
