In light of the team formerly known as the Washington Redskins changing their name to the Washington Football Team, I want to make it easy for you (because I was wondering this myself) to have a list of all the professional teams (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL) that will most likely be changing their names in the next 5 to 10 years to be more politically correct. I’ll also put together a list of major colleges that will be doing the same. Let’s start with the NFL, though…
New England Patriots
Major League Baseball:
National Hockey League:
There are a few more I would add to the list of each league if I were being nitpicky (Oakland Athletics… offensive to unathletic people?)… but for now we’ll leave the list as it is.
Do you think these teams will be pressured to come up with new mascots anytime soon? Chime in below with your thoughts.
