What do the Washington Red Skins, the Edmonton Eskimos and the Neepawa Natives all have in common? They will all go through a name change

Yes, you heard me right the Neepawa Natives here in Westman made the decision last night to change their name, the reason for the name change is, as put by their General Manager Ken Pearson to "Get ahead of the curve".

Multiple factors went into the decision to change the name including other team's decisions to drop their offensive names. Pearson also adds that some people in the community will be disappointed with this decision since the Neepawa Natives name has been around since the early 1960's, but others are excited about the change.

What do you think? What should the Neepawa Natives change their name to?
