Hmmm....are the fine folks at CBSSports onto something?
Well, TMZ has the same story and there's some interesting coincidences going on.
In the din of calls for the Washington Redskins to change their team name comes interesting news from Washington.
CBSSports.com and TMZ are both reporting Aris Madirossian, a man believed to be neighbors with Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, apparently has applied for a patent for the name Washington Bravehearts and also a web domain (WashingtonBravehearts.com) with the same name.
He also appears to have registered the LLC name of Washington Bravehearts, LLC.

TMZ gives us a look at the LLC agreement RIGHT HERE
TMZ also says that Snyder and Madirossian, though not currently in business together or know publicly as friends, have quite a few things in common and have a somewhat friendly or at least neighborly relationship.

Yes, we are aware that this is all extraordinarily circumstantial evidence. This may just be a coincidence or even a ruse. And we are well aware that Snyder swore he'd never change his teams name.
But when the president weighs in on the issue and quite a few others follow suit, you have to at least consider it. And smart money says Snyder is.
And quite honestly, if can get away with the Bravehearts name, it is kinda cool if you think about it.
This will probably be cool the first few times they play it--after that...not so much:
