The Washington Redskins may be no more, the patent for the Redskins name has officially been cancelled by the US Patent & Trademark office. This means any team can use the name of the Redskins but that will not happen. The Washington Redskins can still use the name but it is more than likely that they will finally change the name. I have always disliked the name Redskins and I have name suggestions here for Washington to choose from. Here is the tweet from ESPN about the name.
THIS JUST IN: US Patent & Trademark Office cancels Redskins trademark. Team will no longer have exclusive rights to name. — SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) June 18, 2014
