Welcome your Washington Commanders
 
Prove me wrong Dan.

New thread worthy. If I'm wrong I'll eat all the crow and then some. Also will be the greatest deep-fake in name reveal history.

So how come jeep that has a Commander vehicle is not complaining about the name being taken already or Biden and his dog?

Because it isn’t a trademark infringement

I know the Biden is a moot point, just a dog name and is a joke, but what about Jeep? Isn’t a vehicle name trademarked like a teams name?

It is but nobody is gonna confuse a vehicle with a football team. So it's not really infringing on Jeep's territory.

nobody is gonna confuse a NFL team with a college team, or with an NBA team in regards to Timber Wolves.

it's a smoke screen and F You to the vast majority of the remaining fans. Minus MTK and Summo

I think an NFL franchise had the mean to win the battle [URL="https://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2020/jul/21/wolves-not-just-for-teams-taking/"]a soccer team was willing to fight[/URL], don't you? And if the trademark issues really scared them away, was Washington Wolves really that hard to get? Would have pleased a lot of people and calmed those who found Redwolves crindgeworthy.

Anyway, moot point by now. Just think it's fair to say this whole 2 years fan engaging process was a scam if they ignore the overwhelmingly fan favorite option and pick something absolutely NOBODY was talking about before it became the most likely option.

Heck, I ain't jumping ship, so I'll get used to it. Just surprised to see so many people defending them on this choice which contradicts everything they've been telling us for 2 years.

Honestly the W and the jerseys are pretty cool. I love the black aspect to it. It’s not the Redskins anymore, time for a new brand. If you have stuck through all the bullshit we have over 25 years, you can adjust to this.

This feels like being seperated for the past few years and today is where the judge makes the divorce final. I feel so numb towards this team.

Commanders is just so fucking bad.

I guess something is wrong with me .. but I like Commanders.. but what I will like more is winning ..I refer to them as Washington or Skins , the nickname is no biggie .. I blame the culture for all this crap anyways .. there are some probably out there now trying to figure out how commanders is offensive and they will protest that .. the biggest gripe I have with this whole ordeal is it could have been done is 90 days vs 2 years ..

The Sports Junkies have photos of the uniforms on their Facebook page. If they are for real all I can say is what a disappointment. But I guess I didn't expect anything different.

Exactly. Liking Commanders or not is completely subjective, so no point in arguing that.
But taking 2 years to choose a generic name nobody was talking about before it became the most likely option, vs some of the obvious fans favorite, after talking up this freakin scam of a renaming process which was supposedly all about fans input, that's un-explicable, and disrespectful to us.

I was just referring to the actual idea of infringement not whether it can be contested. Of course any thing is possible [URL="https://www.npr.org/2022/01/28/1076306282/court-rules-gruyere-too-generic-and-u-s-companies-can-make-the-cheese"]click here[/URL]

What community? We took a team name from the AAFL that was used just 3 years ago.

That was the lamest announcement ever. No live players modeling the uniforms, no cheerleaders, no nothing. The name is ok but this lame announcement makes it seem worse than it is.

You take the most iconic thing from your biggest rival and add three of them to your jersey?
Are they supposed to represent super bowls?

Fuck the stars.
Washington commanders hasn’t won shit. Dan is still riding old glory’s dick.

2 years to pick an AAF name nobody was supporting. 2 years to become the toilet of the NFL. Brilliant.

Well boys, it's official, I'm no longer a fellow fan. Enjoy the expansion team with no connection to our history. I'm going to maybe choose a franchise that cares about the opinions of it's fans. RIP Redskins.

Wow … 3 very prominent Black Washington executives and players announced the team name with a statement and yet we have some here accusing them of towing the company line ?? Some if you need to grow the f up .. good for Jason Wright !!! So now Wright only does what the man tells him .. he can’t think for himself .. what a damn insult to the only black team president in the NFL …

I was really expecting to see some players model the new uniforms, maybe that will come later, kind of a ho hum announcement to me.

But at least it's over, time to move on, as a fan or not, everyone has a choice.
