[quote=BaltimoreSkins;1304679]Ok but do you see them naming it something really dumb getting fan and media backlash, rolling out merchandise new signs etc and then before the season saying nope JK it looks like we will stay with WFT? and having to do new signs etc all over again?[/quote]

Oh sure this still has the potential to be a disaster, and yes I'm aware they could pick a name that makes us all regret WFT, totally. Heck I think I prefer WFT over Commanders for an example...
They're just in no position to keep the name they announced as temporary after all this time and rebranding communication IMO.

There's 0 chance they took 2 years to say we're sticking with the WFT. Plus, wasn't there some trademark hangups about that name anyway? Either way, there's going to be a new name.

I was being tongue in check about them looking stupid. It is too easy imagining the possibilities

Does ANYONE want decades of commentators deliberately saying "Washington Football Team" instead of just "Washington"? Really? With that still going on, and the 2 year consultation, does anyone actually believe they'll stick with WFT?

I would take that over Commanders all day every day.

I think it is pretty idiotic that commentators cannot just stick to saying Washington though. It is pretty simple. I know that wasn't your question, but it drives me nuts.

I would guess they are trying to train themselves to cease uttering Redskins, which most of them keep doing.

Funny thing is a lot of commentators weren't using Redskins for the past few years, just Washington. Now all of a sudden they want to go out of their way to say Football Team? It's just trolling by some of them if you ask me.

If it takes them 2 years and the best they can do is a dumb name - they will look about as stupid as it gets.

Agree. Two years and lots of research and $ to come up with a name as stupid as Wizards is for the basketball team would IMO make them look even more stupid.

I don't see how they can stick with the temporary W logo. That would also say after two years we couldn't come up with something better than we came up with in 2 weeks. IMO, if they cant keep some form of WFT because it was deemed temporary, they cant keep the temporary logo either.

I do think there is zero chance of staying WFT because like MTK mentioned, there was some issues with it being too generic. Like trying to trademark An orange orange. I'd like WFC or some riff on that but they will probably go with a stupid name and a stupid logo in an attempt to not look stupid after this big two year research project.

I wonder how many people outside of diehard WFT fans know or even remember WFT was deemed temporary at the start of this process? At this point I don't think the diehards even care anymore that it was temporary.

Dumber the name the better imo. IF the name is really unpopular people just won't use it.
