Look up the Me-262. Jets were flying during the war. 

1941/1942 was the first operational flight, they were active during WW2, but dont expect these uneducated Neanderthals to understand it, they can barely understand someone being flippant, let alone world history.

When are you changing your last name?  Shane helped out a homesteading family (the Starretts) and the Homestead Act accelerated the settlement of the American west, intruding on the land of the Native Americans.

From the press release:

“On July 3rd, we announced the commencement of a thorough review of the team’s name. That review has begun in earnest. As part of this process, we want to keep our sponsors, fans and community apprised of our thinking as we go forward"

Notice the order of concern? I have zero doubt that is Snyder letting his thoughts be known.

You forgot one,

Jets: bent over fans backward and did the dirty to them for over 50 years.

lol. I’m derived from the Sheehan clan of County Cork, IRL. My great-great grandfather came to America in 1916. County Cork was famously invaded throughout the centuries by the Moors, Vikings, Greeks, and even the French, which explains our burly physiques, native excellence in love-making, and relatively huge dicks. 
 

Footnote: both @Irish Jet and @Panzer Division Marduk are from the west coast of Ireland, so none of that applies to them.

They were hardly flying and more importantly it was a German fighter.  Doesn’t make his ugly comment that weve been bombing civilians since WWII

Other than engine problems kept the Jet out of service until mid 1944 and that it was a fighter plane, not a bomber the Neanderthals actually are clued in especially since you said dropping bombs since WWI, which this Neanderthal remembers was earlier than the 1940s :)

It’s pathetic that Snyder didn’t give a sh*t about the outrage his team name caused for decades until Nike and fedex threatened his bottom line...

This is me watching all the crying online from people so upset about the name change...

Their tears are delicious 

Certainly catnip for sports journalists. What will be interesting is the reaction when Snyder uses this as leverage (Already is I’d bet and could have been in on this change this go around)for not spending a dime on a new stadium and getting the next Super Bowl available. They are sitting on the name right now too. My guess is until they get approval on the stadium and big game.

I 100% support this change.

"Slippery Slope!" and "What's Next?" and "What about...?" arguments against it are just the weakest and dumbest defenses of abject racism IMO.  

Teams should not be named after ethnic groups and logos shouldn't be outdated racist caricatures of those ethnic groups.  No matter how much the intent is to "honor" them.  Most of "them" don't want it.

Washington comes up with a decent logo and name, and I'll very likely start watching their games and rooting for them (after 30+ years of refusing to do so living down here) alongside our Jets.  No harm in rooting for an NFL team on the side.

Nope.

Trademark issues are the reason.  Nothing to do with Stadiums or Super Bowls.

Don’t care about the name but it’s going to be tragic to kill the HTTR touchdown song

The replacement name is very likely to be "Red____" (Wolves, Tails, etc), which would keep the song basically intact.

No need.  Don't really care enough either way on that aspect.

The name change was what I wanted, and we're getting it.    

Yeah they’re definitely changing it now. FedEx wasn’t removing signage until after this season though, so my guess is they’ll play out this season as “Washington” in their old threads. Once the RFK site is finalized, likely in partnership with FedEx we’ll see a massive rollout with the new brand etc. And then a Super Bowl announcement at some point.

So what happens when you are a fan of Team A and Team Y protests because the American alphabet no longer represents a real language to the disenfranchised text/emoji based "truth" seekers known as American youth.

I've always like the idea of the Washington Filibusters.

DC $26 TRILLION IN DEBT PRINTING FIAT UNBACKED CURRENCY won't fit on a helmet.

Like I said, "Slippery Slope!" and "What's Next?" arguments hold very little value IMO.  This one is so silly I have to presume you're having a laugh and not being serious.

Will be redwolves, redtails or redhawks.  The uniforms won’t change.  The Helmet logo will be a very similar circle.  

Redtails makes little sense geographically speaking.  The Redtails (P-51 Mustangs with the tails painted red) are associated with Tuskegee Alabama where their training took place.  It would be a great name for an expansion team in Alabama, but not for the DC area...

I still like my idea best.  A total remake.  Washington DC Federals.  Union Blue jerseys, light blue pants with dark blue stripe.   Union blue helmet with two gold stipes that are outlined by thin light blue strips and gold helmet logo of crossed sabers or a civil war cannon or the Union Eagle emblem in gold. 

What could be more fitting ???

Jets: toxic, fossil fuel burning machines that destroy the natural environment and have played a major roll in wars that have killed, maimed and de-house millions of innocent peoples around the world.

Totally ignoring the context of making a flippant remark, but ok.

I'm surprised a Neanderthal knows about Wikipedia.
