[quote=FrenchSkin;1267654]Not sure about that. The fact Jason Wright [URL="https://www.washingtonfootball.com/news/washington-football-team-president-jason-wright-weekly-brief-9-30"]detailed the renaming process[/URL] and explained why it'll take time makes me believe him when he says WFT is about wisely not rushing things and making sure to pick a name that can last over a century.

Now, of course there's a chance it stays WFT, but that's far from a lock IMO.[/quote]

Agreed and there's also the publicity and financial benefits of changing it. Merchandising etc. I wouldn't be surprised that this year has seen a dip, if only comparative, in merchandise sales. And relaunching the team name on the back of the current surge on the field can't be underestimated.

Matty can we get a new poll? WFT vs. Redwolves as those two seem to be the front runners.

Interesting read. Can't help thinking in 10 years time the fuss will have died down to a murmur. But for me we need a new nickname to Bury Redskins and move on,.

...and I guess we won't notice when we play the Cowboys (unless they're forced to change their name too.)

I'm a Braves fan. I like our chances. My 3 favorite pro teams growing up:

1. Redskins, changed to WFT
2. Braves going to be changed to TBD
2. Supersonics moving altogether and becoming OKC

Son of a biscuit, nothing is sacred.

I would do away with any reference to native Americans ( itís not just the redskin name .. itís obvious now with the Indians having to change that any reference is frowned upon ... next it will be chiefs, blackhawks ... etc etc

Yes I think so...and it makes me mad that whenever the Blackhawks are mentioned, analysts just pour the love out for the Blackhawks logo saying how awesome and respectful it is....the REDSKINS logo was designed BY A CHIEF and was much classier looking than the Blackhawks logo...which is still cartoony if you ask me.

Did anyone see the tweet the team put out today with the alumni discussing the new name? Sounds like WFT is the front runner if you go by their comments.
