Agree. I hope they keep it WFT. Its unique and it works. The fight song still works by only changing a few words. Anything else is too corny to work. I hope they don't make the same mistake the Wizards did.

I say keep it Washington Football Team and put the W logo on the helmet or on the sleeves of the jerseys. The only other legit option is Warriors in my eyes.

Definitely get the W on the helmets. I cant stand the numbers on the helmets. Its too disjointed and college/high school looking.

The commentators thing gets me thinking we need some kind of nickname, even if it actually becomes unofficial. I mean if you look at every other team the name or its derivation is punchy and has an immediate identity.

For example, Jets! Jets! Jets!

Football Team! Football Team! Football Team! doesn't trip off the tongue does it.

I liked Red Wolves because the animal image and maybe a tasty logo to go with it would fit with the other animal based names, and the fight song would still work with little change. But anything that works is fine by me. Just can't help thinking Football Team is a bit meh. And will it age well too?

How about DMV! DMV! DMV!

I like WFT but I am still hanging on that it is a business decision if Snyder is ever forced to sell. An unnamed team where a new owner can come in and name it is more valuable than one with a new nickname.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
So you think Snyder thinks he will be forced to sell the team, and that is why there is no name yet?

I don't think it is the end all be all but I think that it could be a factor. I am not sure Snyder is thinking that so much as Jason Wright. Wright seems pretty savvy. Being able to court potential buyers with the idea they can name the franchise does not seem far fetched to me.

Sorry didn't notice you are from the UK. DMV is short for DC, Maryland, Virginia. The Washington Metro area is sometimes referred to as the DMV.

Yea .. Just WASHINGTON !!! No need to refer to team or football team .. just put the W on the helmet and go with that .. itís kind of a statement to all those who are offended anyways ...😀

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
I like Washington Football Team but it is weird to use in conversation. "Washington" is too generic.

I'm going to watch the Washington game is not specific enough. That can mean any number of things.

I'm going to watch The Football Team game sounds like you're trolling people.

And Washington Football Team is just too long to say in conversation.

Now, is that enough reason to not keep it? I don't know. Depends on what the final choice is imo.

I like Washington Wolves. We can still use the W we all seem to like and it's not trying too hard to basically keep the same name. And it comes off the tongue easily.

[quote=skinsfaninok;1267568]They ain't changing the name folks, it's going to be WFT going forward..[/quote]

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.
