People would lose their shit if I tried to name a team New Jersey N*ggers. Or California Chinks.

It's not quite as bad, but it's not great either.
I'd like to see them -refine- the name, by calling themselves the Potomac. or patowomack, which is the actual native tribe in the area the Potomac river is named for. Not only would it be less offensive, it would actually be more specific to washington while still keeping the 'good' part of the name which is meant to evoke the bravery of native warriors. Some leaders from the tribe have publicly said they'd be happy to see the team use their tribe name.1
