Moonie Times editorialist comes up with the "perfect" new name for the Redskins

You guessed it: He wants the team renamed the Reagans.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/jun/24/taube-why-not-the-washington-reagans/?page=1#ixzz35eye70Zb

Isn't there something NON-political associated with Washington they could name the team after? I was thinking "cherry blossoms" once, but that sounds like something you'd name a Japanese baseball team.

1. Nope, that sucks. BUT, if we expand that a little, they could completely rebrand and call themselves

The Washington Presidents

3. How about a play on Washington?

Call them the Continentals after the Continental Army.

6. And the New York Giants can change their name, too!

How about relocating them to Harlem and calling them the Globetrotters?

8. They'd always be losing games when other teams pulled the ol' ball on a rubberband trick

or ran around with a water bucket full of confetti.

14. No, "Ham Fighters" is something you'd name a Japanese baseball team

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nippon_Ham_Fighters

actually, Japanese teams are named for the corporations that own them, in this case Nippon Ham. So the name is really "Fighters".

16. There's also a Carp, a Dragons and a BayStars Japanese baseball team

I think people over there would like a team named the Cherry Blossoms.

15. I found it! The Only Name for the Washington team

Call them the Washington Copperheads. The snake is native to the area and has the degree of menace that good NFL mascots require.

17. Copperheads has a secondary meaning

Democrats who opposed the Civil War were called Copperheads.

19. The Washington Lobbiests.........

Think of the slogans....

We call the plays.
We control the game from the backfield.
Washington is OUR tailgate party.
Make that first down! Throw money at it!

Even the play names would be interesting.......

The filibusterer rush.
The revolving door lateral.
The long Hail Adelson pass.

In no time at all they would control every aspect of the NFL.
