Oh, good one. I bet they know how bad not doing better than an AAF name would look...

I don't want us to use another name of a major sports team, ala Warriors. But I don't think you can worry about if some random B-league team or minor league team or semi-pro team uses the name of has used the name previously. There are thousands of these teams, you would never be able to use any name then.

That has the Alamo in it so it won't be thay one. Hopefully if it is Commanders they use some sort of battle ship or something military related. Not just a generic sword.

Fair point.
I wasn't talking in terms of legal issues, I think those are manageable (and one of the reasons they're taking so much time).
But it terms of image, I don't know how great it looks to pick a name from a random B league that went bankrupt in a couple of months. To that, you could say it wouldn't mean anything 50 years from now, but I still think they don't want be laughed at in 2022.

Right I know that's the San Antonio logo, just saying we shouldn't have an issue doing better than that.

They were barely around for a hot minute, I would doubt that most fans would even know they had a team there.

Its actually a pretty good logo. It has the Alamo and a lone star for TX. The sword isn't a generic sword, it represents the sword Col William Travis used to draw a line in the sand prior to the Alamo battle.

Oh you can trust the internet to 'member ^^
Not saying it's a massive no go. But I bet it's something they considered.

Probably, but it's nothing major. Red wolves would have much bigger hurdles to jump.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
I definitely think it will either be red wolves or Commanders. To me Commanders feels like the smoke screen because you hear the "sources" talk attached to it, but when you look at the videos the obvious underlying tone is for redwolves.

My biggest issue with Commanders is it is simply too long. Sorry but chants and cheers use 1 to 2 syllables.
Go Pack Go
Da Bears
How bout them cowboys (gonna get fried tonight)
Cardinals are the Cards
Buccaneers are the Bucs

How do you shorten or chant with Commanders? Serious question because that is a huge part of the marketing they will need to do.

To me it looks like a generic logo from Madden when you move your franchise to another city. But either way I think a NFL team should do better.
