[quote=skinsfaninok;1285762]Has there ever been any Wolf sighting in the DC area? LOL I just think they will go with something for the history of the city / team. But I agree, at this point I don't care and to go 2 full years as WFT just to change everything again is also stupid[/quote]

Right there with you.

Wolves? That has zero connection to our region and this team.

I will find it hard to embrace wolves. I thought warriors were the best of a bad bunch.

That's why I like football team. A little FU to the PC police.

Yeah same here but it looks like FT will not be the choice.. Dan slipped up and said "Football Club" the other day.. I wouldn't hate a "D.C Football Club" type name

Same .. I thought it had the right pinch of "malicious compliance" and just seemed like a natural fit for this climate.

It won't be the Warriors, yes!!!!!!!! That name is already used. That was my least favorite choice. So at least it won't be that.

Wolves is no more corny than any other animal team name. And Wolves are bad-fucking-ass. But I don't think that will be the name either.

Why bother changing from team to club though?

Club is just another way of referring to a team or franchise. I didn't take it was Snyder messing up and revealing the next name.

I can only imagine the mocking that would come from taking 2 years to go from team to club.

In Oklahoma with so many Native tribes, I was around plenty of NA's.. A WOLF is literally the most iconic symbol to 99% of the tribes

I like Washington Football Club more than Team, don't ask me why. Team seems too generic, football club seems prestigious when compared to Euro soccer clubs I guess.

I was warming up to Warriors, but if Native Americans are uncomfortable with that too guess that's out (even though Warrior doesn't specifically refer to them I can understand why they feel associated with it). Redwolves - even though the red wolf is apparently native to the DC area I never connected with it so no loss to me.

40k suggested names, gotta be at least one good one in there. Obviously they are consulting with NA's during this process. Seems like a smart idea.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
In the spirit of that engagement, I want to address a name that has emerged amongst our fanbase, "Warriors." One might look at this name as a natural, and even harmless transition considering that it does not necessarily or specifically carry a negative connotation. But as we learned through our research and engagement with various groups, "context matters" and that makes it a "slippery slope." Feedback from across communities we engaged clearly revealed deep-seated discomfort around Warriors, with the clear acknowledgment that it too closely aligns with Native American themes. Such an embrace of potentially Native-adjacent iconography and imagery would not represent a clear departure that many communities have so forcefully advocated for us to embrace, and that frankly, we set out to do when we started this process a year ago.

I think they realize they jumped the gun by so quickly calling them WFT. IMO WFClub rolls off the tongue much better than WFT. I hope they keep it WFT or WFC, it's different.

They're not going to go with Football Club or Football Team permanently. For one, Football Team was determined to be too vague to qualify for a trademark, so Snyder can't even stop others from making bank off of it with knock off T Shirts.

Second, he's going to want a brand and logo that gets kids excited. The merchandising value there is significant, both in the short term and the long.

That's how I feel too.

I'm with you, very glad Warriors is out.

Though I'm under no illusions that I'm going to like the new name until I see them win with it. They'll always be the Redskins to me until they win a championship under the new name.

The gravity of our attachment is based on the strength of those championship memories. If you're old enough to remember 1991 and prior, then you still think of them as the Redskins, and that won't change until they give you a reason to.

DC FC when our rivals are Dallas Cowboys(DC) that would be an epic fail.

Why would it be DCFC? Why not WFC?
