    There is no mascot in war paint. There is no mascot at all. There is no tomahawk. They do have a fight song. So what? Your claim has no factual foundation.

On June 5, Roger Goodell wrote to the co-chairs of the Congressional Native American Caucus, whose members had been urging the team to change its name. On NFL letterhead, the league boss alleged that "Redskins" was "a unifying force that stands for strength, courage, pride and respect."

    "Importantly, this positive meaning is shared by the overwhelming majority of football fans and Americans generally, including Native Americans," Goodell wrote. And as Exhibit A, Goodell cited the support of "Chief Steven (sic) Dodson," whom Goodell identified as "an American Inuit chief and resident of Prince Georges (sic) County, Maryland."...."

    The man may or may not be an Indian but it's a point of no importance.

    False

    Anyway, claiming the sport, team, logo, mascot and other representations say nothing about NAs is stupid.

    The team's unofficial mascot is Zema Williams (Chief Zee), an African-American man who began attending games in 1978, wearing an Indian costume consisting of a feathered headdress and rubber tomahawk. Other fans also attend games in costume and are celebrated by the team.[143]

    That has a nice ring to it and if any sport has a lot of bloviation associated with it it's football and Washington, D.C. certainly has more than its fair share of bloviators.
    Until it changes I'm going with the Foreskins.

    The team name could be changed to Warriors and everything else left as it is. The only problem is the attempt to depict a race. Or get a tribes' endorsement and change it to their name.

    It's of no importance to you perhaps but it's important to the Indians.

    Well if we went with the Native nations that were in the area it'd be cool to go with Mohawks. Then watch the players do haircuts to pay tribute.
