My honest guess is that all four will be renamed two years from today.

For the Redskins at least, its economic now. The company with the naming rights wants out and several places that normally stock all the teams won't stock the team's gear anymore. And the decision has been made to no longer be the Redskins, the question is where do they go now.

The Eskimos are going to be a relatively easy change, the term Eskimo was used as an insult by Calgarians toward Edmonton and the idea of a team called the Eskimos have a Green and Gold color scheme just seems off (it was caused by a local college having the jerseys available).

As for the Indians, my guess is that they will go as well, through I'm curious why you menioned the Indians, but not the Braves. My guess is that they get renamed more or less at the same time.

As for the Chiefs, I'm very familiar with the fact that they weren't named after the Native American Chiefs, but rather H. Roe Bartle, however the team's mascots and similar marketing make it quite clear that the franchise interpretted their name relating to Native Americans. They *might* manage to remain the Chiefs, they have a better chance than the rest, if not much.

The Indians announced they are exploring the mascot change. As for the Red Skins, sorry Tom. I guess I grew up in a different genration and a different place in the country so I have compassion for the Native Americans.

ANTS are too tiny to protest the use of their name.

Who would protest these team names:

PRAIRIE---FAMILY---BRIDGES---PROTECTORS---EARLS---GARNETS---GROVE---SHORELINE---MAUVES---SWEETS---ORANGES---RAINBOWS---JUSTICE---LOVE---ARMY---TRIANGLES---ARROWS---WHISPERS---BLADES---VILLIANS---MILLIONS....

Or, for the sake of TomEarp, the PeaSeas.
