*All those folks campaigning for the Washington Redskins to change the team’s name may just get what they want after all.
TMZ is reporting that something curious/suspicious is going on with the organization. There’s evidence the owner might be caving to pressure to change the name:
Here’s what we know. Redskins owner Dan Snyder lives in Potomac, Maryland, a few doors down from a very rich dude, Aris Mardirossian. Aris, a wealthy patent investor, registered the name, WASHINGTON BRAVEHEARTS on October 17th. According to the Trademark application, obtained by TMZSports, Aris plans to use the name for “Entertainment in the nature of football games.”
Aris also created a company called Washington Brave Hearts, LLC on the same day — Oct. 17th. We’ve also obtained the LLC docs but there are no specifics.
As for the relationship between Aris and Dan, we’re told the 2 of them formed a united front on their block a few years back — both men wanted to cut down trees on their lots but they were being blocked by the county.
