Bob Costas takes a strong stance against the name Redskins in this commentary. He labels it a "slur."

I agree with Costas, because of the negative historical associations of the racial epithet. (It's included in a 'List of ethnic slurs' on Wikipedia.)
I suggest the WASHINGTON WARRIORS, which I think might be an alternative acceptable to Native Americans which would enable the team to keep their present logo. Also, it's pleasingly alliterative.
