Are the Redskins Changing Their Name to the “Bravehearts”?

TMZ has an intriguing report out that the Washington Redskins, whose name has become unacceptable to utter in polite society, may be contemplating a switch.

Redskins owner Dan Snyder lives in Potomac, Maryland, a few doors down from a very rich dude, Aris Mardirossian. Aris, a wealthy patent investor, registered the name, WASHINGTON BRAVEHEARTS on October 17th.   According to the Trademark application, obtained by TMZSports, Aris plans to use the name for “Entertainment in the nature of football games.”

(Snyder has difficultly sussing out actual anti-Semitism, apparently.) IF, that is, Snyder and Mardirossian are actually mulling a name change.
