Could the Washington Redskins soon be the Washington Bravehearts? Until it’s official, the switch is simply educated speculation and, at the very least, a curious chain of events. Team owner Dan Snyder has a neighbor named Aris Mardirossian, a wealthy patent investor with a history of backing big trademarks. So, could it be a coincidence that, on October 17th, Aris registered the name Washington Bravehearts? Sure, it’s possible that the guy’s just Mel Gibson fan looking to start a fan club for the 1995 war film. Until you read the application.
