SI Poll: NFL fans disapprove of Goodell
Thursday September 25th, 2014

A Washington fan is hoping to encourage his fellow fans to support changing the team's name by launching a website where they can submit and vote on new nicknames and logos for the organization.

Derek Jeter has the best selling MLB jersey of all-time currently has over 20 alternative names for the team, and a dozen options for new logos should owner Dan Snyder decide to change Washington's name.

The current vote leader is the Washington Generals, with a logo depicting George Washington's head over the Pentagon, while site owner Brian Thurber says his favorite is the Washington Redtails, according to the Washingtonian.

Sports Illustrated's recent NFL fan poll showed that just 25% of people supported a name change for the team, but Snyder's refusal to change the name has been the subject of ridicule from places like John Oliver and South Park.
