Washington NFL team name reimagined by PR, advertising experts - Washington Business Journal

Our Jeff Goldberg on why he'd recommend the Washington Redtails as the team's new nickname:

"It would be an ideal solution to the name change debate. The Redtails nickname was used by the Tuskegee Airmen, the nation’s first African American aerial combat unit who broke the color barrier during World War II. Not only would the Redtails nickname honor one of the most storied military units in American history, it would also give recognition to a group of individuals that stood up to systematic inequality to create significant and positive change that altered the course of history. In this moment of reflection and action regarding race relations in America, the Redtails nickname would show the world that the Washington region is dedicated to promoting ideas, themes and people committed to change and inclusivity.

Furthermore, picking a name rooted in the military would recognize how strongly the D.C. region’s identity is connected to the armed services. This gives the name a true local connection that appeals to fans from all different races and backgrounds, much like the makeup of the military itself."

I think these weekly Live Wire communications are an excellent vehicle for sending important messages that I might have missed. They are so informative and very well done.
The hashtag says it all. "Average" is not our thing!
