Oddsmakers think it’s possible the Washington Redskins will rename themselves the Washington Capitols
The NHL’s Washington Capitals could share the same space as the NFL’s Washington Capitols, according to oddsmakers. This ridiculous possibility was spawned by developing news with the Washington Redskins.
Thursday night, ABC 7 News reported that FedEx asked the Washington Football team to change its racist nickname. FedEx, of course, owns the naming rights of Dan Snyder’s Landover football field. FedEx CEO Frederik Smith is a minority owner of the team.
“We have communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name,” FedEx said in a statement.
