come on now, "Generals" will forever be remembered as New Jersey's USFL franchise. (by me and maybe 23 other people anyway....)

just had a great discussion about this with a co-worker. he asked me if i had heard about "all this fuss" about the r******s name, and that he thought it was bogus. there's no reason for anyone to get offended, he can't understand why anyone would, and he doesn't consider the term slanderous or racist. then i asked him about who was leading the effort to change the name, and he said some native american groups were involved. uhh...

he also said

"there was a time when geronimo was on the u.s. nickel - it's an honor."

can't argue with that!

Doesn't matter. The 81-year-old Washington http://images.chron.com/blogs/askacat/hatcat.JPG name is falling, and everybody better get out of the way. For the majority of Native Americans who don't care, we'll care for them. For the Native Americans who haven't asked for help, we're glad to give it to them.

Trust us. We know what's best. We'll take this away for your own good, and put up barriers that protect you from ever being harmed again.

Kind of like a reservation.

i imagine that several BIG BOSSES at ESPN wanted to manufacture a contrived counterpoint to the clear and obvious point of "hey this team name is a clear racial slur that refers to SKIN COLOR and somehow managed to limp into the 21st century with this hella outdated and generally offensive name" so that they weren't perceived to be looking at both sides of the issue and down to the bullpen they went and who raised their goddamned hand but rick fucking reilly
i mean for crying out loud the article tag on the sidebar reads: "Not A Cause For Everyone - The outrage over the name http://images.chron.com/blogs/askacat/hatcat.JPG isn't universal."

Maryland Myrmidons

The Myrmidons of Greek myth were known for their loyalty to their leaders, so that in pre-industrial Europe the word "myrmidon" carried many of the same connotations that "robot" does today. "Myrmidon" later came to mean "hired ruffian", according to the Oxford English Dictionary.

I don’t know about American sports, but I can’t see any reason not to just go with The Washington Go-Gos. Kind of the perfect name, no matter how you look at it, unless I’m missing something.

the missing thing is that if you took a map of the dc/md/va and marked the regions where washington football team fans live and then mark the regions where go-go music is performed and listened to there would be zero overlap


I think I get your intention here but this makes it sound like ppl that live in areas where go-go is performed don’t watch the Washington football team, which is actually more true of the nationals

just going off of experience as someone whose spent my entire life living within a 30 mile radius of DC. obviously the washington team has fans of color but football isn't big in the city itself

football fans are still pretty white though

Of course most fans will be white, whites compromise about 76% of the population.

ok i regret posting that because i was only ever making a flippant generalization that the football team has never been a big part of DC metro culture like the wizards or even the nats are, they belong to maryland and virginia. i've met more WFT fans from baltimore (from the post-colts pre-ravens era) than i have from DC city proper. i spent six years in PG county (the home of go-go music AND... fedex field) and i still met surprisingly few fans who were native to the county. the idea of snyder using something like go-go to brand his team just strikes me as cheap. of course chuck brown was supposedly a big sk*ns fan so what do i know.

I see http://i.imgur.com/QbYzHTH.jpg-crap-festooned cars in DC proper on a regular basis. Almost always driven by black people (if I can see the driver).

I feel like I see more cars with Capitals and Nationals crap, though. Probably has something to do with not sucking.

Also never forget the local Cowboys fandom. Note the stats in this City Paper piece on black residents’ affinity for the local team, though: https://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/news/article/13042042/why-are-there-so-many-cowboys-fans-in-dc
