  1. Wildcats is overused in college and there are already four teams in the NFL named after a Wildcat (Lions, Bengals, Panthers, Jaguars). Warriors is only marginally better but still wouldn't sound right. I personally like "Renegades". Don't know why but it sounds cool and its starts with the letter "R" like their now-former name. I'm also liking "Code Talkers" as its not generic-sounding and several Native American groups don't seem to have a problem with it.
  2. To be clear, I did NOT specifically type "Washington Redskins" or "Washington NFL" when I searched on eBay. Before the past week or so, If I were to search "NFL Shirt", "NFL Stickers", "NFL Helmet", etc, I would get a mixture of teams, usually the more popular teams like the Cowboys, Steelers, Raiders, Bears, Giants, etc. As for the Redskins stuff I suddenly noticed show up on the "Best Match" this past week, I did see a few items that featured "WASHINGTON" and/or the logo but not the name. There's even Nike Redskins gear (such as sneakers) that showed up. I typed "NFL Hat" on eBay this morning and the top 3 results were the Redskins and more related to NFL's most controversial team name shows up as I scrolled down the page.
  3. 1978-1993 "MB Glove" logo wins hands down. Glad the Brewers went back to a modernized version of that logo.
  4. The NFL and Roger Goddell should force Snyder to sell the Washington Whatchamacallits right now. The NBA did this with the Clippers years back when Donald Sterling was caught making those dumb statements as he had been an awful owner for years. I think the Snyder situation brewing right now is worse as Sterling was only guilty of making stupid comments.
  5. No. I consider them a grass team, which is why I did not include them or any of the other teams that have that type of grass. If I recall, don't the Broncos, Eagles, and Texans (pre-2015) also have the plastic-reinforced grass that you described at their respective stadiums? I forgot something, here's where I got most of the information from https://www.stadiumsofprofootball.com/
  6. Toronto Blue Jays of Buffalo (lame joke, I know). Watching baseball in 2020 is going to be weird enough with empty stadiums due to that virus! And Comcast cable still hasn't picked up the Cubs' new network Marquee Sports Network, meaning that I'm stuck watching the White Sox on NBC Sports Chicago or whatever Fox's Game of the Week is on whenever I'm in the mood to watch a ballgame..
  7. Chargers look incredible! Easily went from one of the worst/blandest looks to one of the best in the NFL. Don't mind the italic numbers at all. The Steelers pulled it off and now have the Chargers. My only criticism of the Chargers' new look is the royal blue color rush. It's not bad but they should leave that color to the Rams. The navy jersey can stay, however, Although the Chargers look much better than the Rams, they will still be the 2nd team in Los Angeles (they should had never left San Diego). As for the Rams, I love the return to royal blue/athletic gold and the helmet is nice . I'm glad they didn't go with a bland navy blue/white scheme. But the bone off-white color they're trying to pull off with the road whites doesn't mesh well with the brighter colors. (and why is there a white stripe on the off-white pants?) At least their gradient numbers aren't as distracting as the Falcons new red/black jersey. The Rams' new primary logo isn't truly great but it isn't as bad as people make it out to be. Overall, a mixture of good and bad .
  8. I had assumed that the new Los Angeles stadium would have grass. My mistake. I updated 2020 2020 (32 teams) NFC - 8 teams (Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, Detroit Lions, Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants, Los Angeles Rams) AFC - 7 teams (Buffalo Bills, Indianapolis Colts, New York Jets, Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots, Houston Texans, LA Chargers) Overall, artificial turf (FieldTurf, not the original AstroTurf) has been more accepted in football than in baseball. Full NFL list Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans (1968-1996, 1998 AstroTurf) Philadelphia Eagles (1969-2000 AstroTurf, 2001-2002 Nexturf) St. Louis/Arizona Cardinals (1970-1987 AstroTurf) Dallas Cowboys (1970-2002 AstroTurf, 2003-present FieldTurf) Miami Dolphins (1970-1975 PolyTurf) New England Patriots (1970-1976 PolyTurf, 1977-1990 AstroTurf, mid-2006-present FieldTurf) Cincinnati Bengals (1970-1999 AstroTurf, 2004-present FieldTurf) Pittsburgh Steelers (1970-2000 AstroTurf) San Francisco 49ers (1971-1978 AstroTurf) New Orleans Saints (1971-1975 PolyTurf, 1975-2002 AstroTurf, 2003-present FieldTurf) Chicago Bears (1971-1987 Astroturf, 2002 FieldTurf) Kansas City Chiefs (1972-1993 AstroTurf) Buffalo Bills (1973-2002 AstroTurf, 2003-present AstroPlay) Detroit Lions (1975-2001 AstroTurf, 2002-present FieldTurf) New York Giants (1976-1999 AstroTurf, 2003-present FieldTurf) Seattle Seahawks (1976-1999 AstroTurf, 2000-present FieldTurf) Minnesota Vikings (1982-2003 AstroTurf, 2004-present FieldTurf) New York Jets (1984-1999 AstroTurf, 2003-present FieldTurf) Indianapolis Colts (1984-2004 AstroTurf, 2005-present FieldTurf) Atlanta Falcons (1992-2002 AstroTurf, 2003-present FieldTurf) St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams (1995-2004 AstroTurf, 2005-2015, 2020-present FieldTurf) Baltimore Ravens (2003-2015 Show Sports Turf Momentum) Houston Texans (2015-present Hellas Matrix Helix Turf) LA (formerly San Diego) Chargers (2020-present, FieldTurf) Green Bay Packers (never) Washington Redskins/insert new name here (never) Cleveland Browns (never) Denver Broncos (never) Oakland/Los Angeles/Oakland again/Las Vegas Raiders (never) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (never) Carolina Panthers (never) Jacksonville Jaguars (never)
  9. I agree. Don't let some of the other replies suggest otherwise. Maybe not the name but the Indian head logo may return someday (or the Florida St-esqe Spear look). Whatever side you're on this often heated issue, can we all at least agree that fans will not miss Daniel Snyder's tenure as the team's owner. Whatever they call themselves in the near-future, I'll still refer to them as the "Ex-Redskins" (or "Ex-Skins" or "FedEx-Skins") I still miss the Houston Oilers (the Tennessee Titans' new look is beyond dreadful though their original look was acceptable). That said, the Texans brand is fine as it is and we don't need a Cleveland Browns-like scenario. Despite the controversies surrounding the Washington franchise with this sexual harassment bombshell not helping any matters, Redskins-related memorabilia seem to be in high demand. I searched "NFL Pennants", "NFL Shirts", "NFL Hoodies", "NFL Posters", "NFL Helmets", etc on eBay just for the fun of it and in most cases the top result is a Redskins item or as I scroll down the page, I noticed a high amount of Redskns gear. On "NFL Shirts" alone, 14 of the top 15 items as I scrolled on page 1 are Washington Redskins shirts and a few more show up as I scrolled down the page.
