Right now it is just a conspiracy theory from TMZ, but an interesting one.
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 With all the hubbub over the Redskins name, it’s more than curious that a man who has nothing to do with football would suddenly register the name of a football team that would solve his neighbor’s problem.
I liked the Washington Warriors personally, if they decided to make a change.
