Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
So take this for what it's worth and if this has been mentioned somewhere in here before I had not seen it, but I was watching games yesterday at a bar and the new name change for Washington came up and a woman there who is an attorney in Raleigh NC area but also works up in DC at times said an attorney she works with in DC said the teams new name is going to be The Redhawks. I have not seen that name anywhere...so who knows.

It would be nice if they could cut a deal and go with ... Nationals. Have a crossover thing going with the baseball team like there used to be in Boston and New York. Use the curly W.

Of course a deal between the Snyders and Lerners is about as likely as one between Iran and Israel.

My preference if staying WFT but if I had to pick a name it would be Americans.
Unfortunately like Nationals that would require a color change to red, white, blue and that's not happening.

I could live with WFT.

I don't think we would have to change our colors in any case. Neither Edgar Allen Poe nor Ravens are purple. Jets tend not to be green. Panthers are not whatever that color is down there.

Iím good with WFT but itís not going to stay that.. They wouldnít have Joe Gibbs do a video to keep it that name.. Ron also said the team has ordered all of the gear for next year as well. Most seem to think itíll be commanders which Iím cool with as long as they keep the W logo

"In the end that whole process was a complete waste of time and money"

Was. Never. An. Option.

While I tend to agree with what you say, you are assuming that WFT is being open and honest about how they are conducting the the process. I don't trust the WFT organization to be honest about anything.

It's about how stupid sticking with the temporary name after communicating about how great their rebranding process was for 2 years would make them look.

And I do think Jason Wright has done a fairly good job of being as transparent as he could be while conducting the rebranding of a billions dollars company.

I agree about Jason Wright but he's good at telling us what he wants us to know.

I'm not saying its about them being honest, I'm saying that based on WFT's past bad behavior and cover-ups its hard to take what they say seriously. Although its not impossible to make WFT look any worse than it already does, they can always go lower.

What if this two years with WFT is the rebranding process?

You raise valid points.

With regards to keeping WFT, an example of when sometimes the best option is to do nothing.

But Danny don't do nothing. Never has and he never will.

Absolutely. But for me it's just hard to believe that they, yes, [I]even them[/I], don't realize how stupid keeping WFT would make them look.

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?

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
I'm willing to bet the will keep the Logo but just put "Commanders" where FT is. Maybe update the jerseys and throw the W on the helmet
