I just want to start this thread off by saying I'm not looking to start a political debate over whether the Redskins name should be changed or not.

What I want to know and discuss with other Raven fans is if they think that Skins fans will stay loyal to the team if the name is changed.

If you were or are from MD, VA or nearby you will know that Skin fans claim to have the most loyal fan base in the league.

So will the fans stay loyal and root for DC's team if and when the name is changed?

Please don't turn this thread into a political debate.

"In every journey there will be ups and downs peaks and valleys and no matter how long you have been in this business that when opportunity knocks you gotta grab it. Because if you don't grab it, you never know if it's ever going to show up again. All 32 teams come in with the same thing, for us it's no different. Ultimately the destination is Dallas. The one team to see the confetti drop. We've been everywhere and been tested and if thats in our destiny, than that's what we're really going to touch at the end of the year. As far as, Why else do you play the game? You only play the game to win a Championship. And I want that taste again, and that's always the motivation and that movitivation will never stop untill the day I retire." #52

I don't think it'll matter in terms of them losing fans. They'll just be mad at the league and bitter about it. That would be my guess.

It's not like they are moving.

Easy answer. Would you stay loyal to the Baltimore Ravens organization if they were pressured into changing their name?

I see nothing wrong with the Redskins name.....They should protest to keep the name if it was ever happened for the change.

 

 

My answer would be they will stay royal for their team.....

Sorry they are keeping the name I guess some people dont know that they do alot for the smokey mountain reservation  that Franchise is a Historic Franchise that has given to the native american community as a person who can claim heritage I think its not a slander  of a name never will be .

I like how the OP says twice not to turn it into a debate about whether or not to change the name...and comments immediately follow discussing the merits of changing the name.

 

As for whether they would stay loyal, I mean, the vast majority would, you don't just stop following a team in the same city because they're called something else now, with the same players, but there are definitely some people who would probably stop following football altogether as a way of "sticking it" to the NFL if Washington changed the name.

Nobody should dictate to people of other races what they should and shouldn't find offensive. With that said its on the Redskins organization to change it or not.

They have a proud history and tradition, to think we're attacking such a noble name. It shouldn't be a surprise they're going off the reservation.

It works the other way too... trying absorb every bit of money he can from the fans... Walking on the sidewalk ( Fee) , no walk-ups at 6 flags, paying to see training camp
