Definition of commander

1 : one in an official position of command or control: such as
a : COMMANDING OFFICER
b : the presiding officer of a society or organization
2 : a commissioned officer in the navy or coast guard ranking above a lieutenant commander and below a captain

The Navy always comes to mind when I hear the word Commander.

It isn't in my top group of choices, but I'd also be OK with it.

And all military services have Commanders at all levels. They are ultimately responsible for the accomplishment of their respective unit's assigned tasks and missions. Could be as low on the totem pole as a Tank Commander, to as high as the "Commander in Chief".

It's a dumb name for a football team though IMO.

Sounds like an arena/USFL team name, dumb. Might as well name them the generals. Maybe the dead Kennedy’s.

Once the newness wears off, it will be just like any other name. In a vacuum plenty of other names aren't that great when you think about it.

[quote=skinsfaninok;1301649]The RED Is most likely done.. we need to accept that and move on.. The W is actually really clean , as is the G for GB or C for Chicago.. The Cowboys star is used all over the place as well.. Commanders isn't a terrible name, it's better than just WFT[/quote]

Why is RED done and why do you accept that? That is our history and can continue with some simple tweaks.


Although I loathe them, the Cowboy star is actually very, very cool. Say what you will, but Dallas' images, from the uniforms to the cheerleaders, have always been impressive.

The current W fits in perfectly with the sterile landscape that is FedEx Field. Keep WFT and put a nice, traditional block W in there.

Funny you mention Green Bay, but the aforementioned Lombardi R was designed with the G in mind as obviously Vince had been there.

[quote=AnonEmouse;1301651]I almost don't care about the name, just as long as it stops commentators saying the whole name just to emphasise its a temporary name/crap. It's well beyond tiresome now.[/quote]

What's funny is how commentators actually keep saying Redskins by default.

I heard Collingsworth and Michaels do it and then have a laugh. Aikman did it on Thanksgiving until Buck corrected him. And then this past Monday night one of those guys did it.

Force of habit.

Better than when Phil Simms made a bid deal of how he was never going to use it and then proceeded to use it multiple times when he covered the <gasp!> Redskins.

Makes me think this was manufactured outrage from the get go.

Levy said Redskins at the end of the game on MNF.

Yea that was the guy.

I guess the Earth did not open up and swallow him.

It's like saying San Diego with the Chargers. In time that becomes less of an issue.

Redskins is gone. Sucks but that's life.

Not really as they started in Los Angeles. The Redskins started in Boston and were once the Braves. Doubt they miss them.

Speaking of LA, the Rams would be a good team to elevate to No 1. Better than Commanders. Sucks to ditch your team but that's life after all.

That is the reality. I know I'm not going to like the new name at first, but in the end it's just a name.
