The franchise has chosen to commit to the Indian.  

See how easy it is to say, “no”

If the Sioux name has not been willingly voted to be retired back in 2012, it certainly would be getting a ton of pressure today to do it. It sucked seeing the Sioux name go, but the inevitable PC mob was going to win the day one way or another. Now that the Redskins name is changing, no. Armenia sage. Indians, Braves, Seminoles, you are next!!

Hopefully Washington comes up with a better nickname than Hawks.;)

Or keep the existing logo and just change the name, they have to use it in some way to keep the trademark

Which pro sports league do they play for, the Auto Correct Athletic Association? ;)

Washington Redskins still on NFL.com but not on ESPN. Rumor is Dan Synder removed the name but will be a thorn in a bush on creating a new name. If so, I like his move here.

Maybe Snyder should get a Native American perspective on the new name, maybe someone like Elizabeth Warren.

They should just truncate the present moniker to "Moes".

They'd be the Esko Moes. PRESTO! Solution. 

Logo?

Robstown? And the best they can do is Cotton Pickers? 

C'mon ... Bandits, Prowlers, have fun with the town name Robstown. 

Thief River Falls' Prowlers got it right (thief, prowler). 

Crookston missed their opportunity.

Well, they are the Pirates. So they didn’t miss it by that much.
