Re: Washington Redskins Name Change on the Way?

Frankly this seems long overdue. I do think they need a new name that will strike fear into their opponents. Maybe the Washington Congress, or the DC Lobbyists or maybe they will just go with something bland and dumb.... yeah pretty sure it will be that one.

I'd think those tugs were built to survive if not an a-bomb at least 2 other apocalypses. There is a kinda of elegant but brutally utilitarian engineering to them.

Based on what I have from Company,
ORD,DEN,IAH,IAD,SFO, BOS, BWI, DCA, DFW, DTW, LGA, MIA and EWR all require for pax and employees
I'm also fairly sure STL requires as well.
Last publication I have shows CLT does not require them, so I'd bet CLT is still in the waffle phase on the decision making.
