It’s Actually Happening: Washington is Changing Its Team Name

Chicago Bears

It wasn’t until sponsors and vendors started finally dropping the team that I finally thought there was a chance Dan Snyder might capitulate and change his football team’s racist name. I just didn’t think it would ever happen. But clearly, this moment in our country is yielding some things many of us never expected.

It’s happening:

Charles Robinson actually had the scoop a day earlier, but now it looks like Washington is going to make things official.

Time to start speculating on the new name … RedTails? RedWolves? RedHawks? Warriors? Bullets?

Meanwhile, in MLB, the Cleveland Indians have started to consider whether they, too, are due for a name change.
