... The frontrunner was RedTails, with 28 percent of 91,936 votes, with Warriors (23 percent) and “other” (20 percent) close behind.

... The story of the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African American fighter pilots in World War II, was told in the 2012 movie “Red Tails.” That’s as close as Washington will get to the old name, while turning a negative into a positive.

The initial review of “Redskins” is complete, and the team is expected to announce that the moniker will be retired as early as Monday. It is unclear if the new nickname will be announced at the same time.
It’s safe to assume the transition to the new nickname will happen swiftly after merchandise partners have already pulled merchandise with “Redskins” from their shelves. Sponsors also pressured Snyder and the team to change the name, along with politicians’ insistence that a new stadium on the RFK Stadium site would happen if the name is changed....

"Generals" 6%. Nah, but I do like the Harlem Globetrotters reference.
"Senators" 3%. Ewww.
