    Not mad. Just expressing an opinion. Damn. Seems like that other thread is really getting to you again.

    No it isn't. Sometime I think you fail to understand how aggressive your posts can come across, since we're online and can't pick up on tone. That post was worded in a way that sounded very aggressive. I do it all the time too.

    I’ve seen the name suggested in the press. The term “Warriors” is often applied to Native Americans, but it really is a more generic term. If their logo was, say, more reminiscent of a Roman centurion or a Spartan warrior, is it the same?

    Myself I’d rather see a name more relevant to DC...

    Also, according to dictionary.com, the word “warrior” can also mean any of numerous yoga poses. I see no reason that should be an offensive moniker. Their mascot could be a soccer mom sprawled out on a floor mat...
