Yea, I imagine they will look like this next season and in 2021.

Essentially like Topps football cards from the 70s. 

 

Amazon.com: 1979 Topps # 276 Bob Kuziel Washington Redskins ...

It's been said and will be said again, but this is the direction they should go, letting the name be something fairly unremarkable and the classic look speak for itself.

I love that color scheme, but they've already announced that they're dropping all First Nations imagery.

Seriously, I think Washington Gridlock would make the most sense.

Real, unique, indigenous and specific animal names work better than generic ones. Think Diamondback vs. Snake, or Terrapin vs. Turtle, or Seahawk vs. Hawk, or Bengal (not indigenous of course) vs. Tiger, or Oriole vs. Bird, or Marlin vs. Fish.

 

 

For the record, a red wolf is a particular species (or subspecies) of wolf. So it's actually more specific than your examples diamondback, terrapin, oriole, or marlin, each of which are terms covering several species.

Regarding the trademark issue that's been brought up a bunch of times (them continuing to sell their old stuff just to maintain the trademark) didn't courts rule that they can't have a trademark on it?  Or was it just the name?  I could swear that there's something about not being able to trademark slurs or 'hate speech' or something like that.

 

 

As I recall the trademark appeals board invalidated the name as being derogatory. But in a separate case decided while Washington appealed the ruling, the Supreme Court ruled trademark law's proscription of derogatory marks unconstitutionally abridged the right to free speech. As a result, the previous ruling in the Washington case became moot and the team could continue to protect their name.

Ahh.  Must've missed that.  Welp, we shall see, I guess. 

 

Fingers crossed it's not a Brandiose-style treatment.

Pretty sure that's not what OldSchoolVikings was referring to. Experience is a wonderful thing.

Get back on topic, boys. There are plenty of fine places to have your current discussion and this place isn't any of them.

But on a serious note, Cherries may sound collegiate to many sports fans out there. And while I admit it has some cough;perveted;cough meaning, Cherries is both a fun nickname to pick form and a word with historical/cultural connections.

Actually, the ruling in another case acknowledged that you CAN trademark something that somebody else could find offensive. Case involved a band with Asian musicians that called themselves The Slants.
