Might work, especially since some realtor in Alexandria has "trademarked" some of the obvious possibilities.  There is a name for people who do that, but it eludes me at the moment...

Is this even legal? Can you trademark names you are definitely not using?

Back to topic;
What about Washington Greenskins and use an Orc as mascot?

Apparently it is legal.  It's a practice known as "bad-faith trademark filing"-sometimes referred to as "trademark squatting."  People do it mostly in hopes of making a person or company pay them big $$ to give it up.

Ugh.
Hopefully there will be legislation to deal with these sort of things just as it began for copyright trolling.

The guy who did it is apparently willing to give the trademarks up for free, so it sounds like he played himself more than anything.

If even a fraction of this is true, then holy freaking cow, man.   :o

From what I was reading Washington's possibly about to face a sex trafficking scandal that may even involve Snyder.

Some Washington fans are actually happy about the possibility.  Snyder hasn't exactly been a model owner for the franchise.  They're hoping for an ouster.

Well Epstein's madame is in jail now and still alive last I heard. I'm sure a lot of people are shaking in their boots right now.

Do I get a check from Dan Snyder for the idea?

Heck, they are even using the number on the helmet.

I wonder if they're holding out for a corporate sponsorship team name contract offer. As precedent think of all the stadiums that had geographic or location names, but are now [insert corporation name here] field / stadium. So, how about the Washington FedExers? Although, Washington Ex-Feds might be more appropriate.

Or if the price is too high, they could have a joint sponsorship.  The Washington Fed-UPS
