    I'm far from a Dan Snyder fan, but there's part of me that kind of thinks he knows what the end game is here. He knows he's going to have to change the name.

    But he also knows he has a significant fan base that would be very upset if he rolled over to public pressure and made the change.

    So what does he do? He spends a few bucks appealing this kind of thing to District Court and if/when he loses, he changes the name and tells his fans, "hey I tried, but we can't afford to have a brand that's not protected by copywrite laws. Don't blame me."

    Then again, it's not hard to see a guy with his ego just being an idiot, either.

    I have to admit that I'd find those names terrible... and absolutely hilarious.
