On July 31, the Washington NFL team announced the retirement of their current name and logo.

From Washington Team website:

On July 3rd, we announced the commencement of a thorough review of the team's name. That review has begun in earnest. As part of this process, we want to keep our sponsors, fans and community apprised of our thinking as we go forward.

Today, we are announcing we will be retiring the Redskins name and logo upon completion of this review.

Dan Snyder and Coach Rivera are working closely to develop a new name and design approach that will enhance the standing of our proud, tradition rich franchise and inspire our sponsors, fans and community for the next 100 years.

    That team should have never named it that name, and finally it has been changed. Now the kansas city team has to change its name too. The kansas city chef’s. The atlanta and cleveland baseball teams will change their names as well as the chicago hockey team. All schools, k-12, colleges, and universities will do the same. So will businesses. All Indigenous people need to make them change, now!
