A Redskins alternative: The Rednecks
WASHINGTON -- There have been many suggested alternatives for the Washington Football team name ever since the debate over its appropriateness heated up over the last year. One T-shirt company in San Francisco is offering its solution, requiring only a minor change in design, and just a few letters away from the original.

With the traditional feathers swapped out for raccoon tails, the logo features a goteed, mutton-chopped Caucasian, with a bandana sweeping back a majestic mullet, sunglasses tucked in behind his head. The shirt retails for $18.00 on the company’s website.
The company has sold about 1,500 shirts in the first week. That makes it “easily five times the average for the first week of a new shirt,” the company’s creative director told Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post.
