Well actually if you read the timeline they put on the journey website, which is in line with the process Jason Wright revealed during the season, I really don't think there's that big of a chance it stays WFT.

They highlighted so many times the fact they gonna value fan input and they wanted to pick a name that last at least a century, I have a hard time going "meeeh we don't feel like rebranding after all...".

Just read the last part of the timeline:

"Finally, we put our game plan into actionóby unveiling and launching our new identity for the fans, the players, and the future. This will kick off the next century of Washington Football."

Re: WFT Quarterback Thread - Post SEASON 2021

Names like Redwolves or Wolves in general are probably out IMO. Warriors would have a shot but I have really grown into the WFT movement. Itís clean and nobody else uses it

Why would the wolves versions be out? Just asking the rationale for saying that?

If they are going to name it something like that , you would see the team slowly transitioning to it. The fact that they have branded the WFT logo now on all merchandise and at the facility itself seems like they are going to be keeping that logo for good.

You may be right, but truthfully the better marketing is to act like WFT is the brand so people buy without reservation, then at the new brand reveal transform the whole scene in one shot. Doing it like you said, slow transformation style means less revenue for the year.

And they had to do the facility once Redskins was deemed unwelcome. Logo is so generic the costs for the change are minimal given the scope of the NFL.

Re: WFT Quarterback Thread - Post SEASON 2021

Okay .. well we are currently the ONLY major sports team ( other than soccer) that does not have a nickname ... Iím so tired of Eagles,Seahawks, falcons, bears, rams, dolphins, jags, broncos, cardinals, lions, panthers, bengals..that is what Iím referring to as generic .. I actually like Buffalo Bills , Packers, Patriots, Saints, Texans, 49ers, Steelers, football team may be generic as hell but nobody else has a name like it .. The Capitals have the perfect name for a DC team , Nationals is good .. Wizards for me is horrible.. but so was bullets, .. what sucks is a lot of the USFL , arena football and other minor league teams have had great names that nobody wants to re-use .. factor that in with the PC crowd and itís gonna be tough to Come up with a name ..

I'm with ya. There's one other benefit to sticking with Football Team ...

I also truly enjoy, watching the jackasses in sports media constantly stumble around with our team, and inadvertently slip and say Redskins. And you know it kills them, because they want to be the most PC people in the world.

If we stick with Football Team, the slips to Redskins will continue.

If we transition to something else --- whatever that will be --- the jackassery in sports media won't slip as much, if at all.

Or maybe they just did that so people will buy their merch for a year or two and then turn around and spend a boat load more money to buy all the new team named gear when the final new name comes out. All about that 💵. Danny Boy may be an asshole as a human being, but he didnít get to be a billionaire by being stupid. He knows what heís doing.

Isn't this a QB thread???? Isn't there a thread for the name change?

DeShaun Watson never going to waive his no trade clause to come to a team called ďteamĒ. There. I fixed it for you.

I think THE DAN cackles with glee at not changing the name and leaving it in limbo, thumbing his nose at all the SJWs. I think Goodell and NFL have told him he has to pick a name eventually. I think complicating the matter is the fact that squatters have sat on many of the preferred names, the intellectual rights, and want exorbitant sums for them. Oh the irony of turds bigger than THE DAN holding him hostage. I do not think painting and relabeling costs or any of that factor in, they are a pittance. Warriors is the easy choice, but squatters own it, for example. A final note is that the name must be 100% PC-friendly, sad what this country is becoming, and even warriors might not be 100% PC-friendly. There is also a PR aspect, how it factors in to the investigations of misconduct on every front imaginable by THE DAN.

We are the only major sports team in the U.S. without a name. In other countries it is perfectly normal. For example, where I grew up, I was a fan of the 1. FC Kaiserslautern (Meaning First Football Club Kaiserslautern). Which is why I would be okay with staying WFT. Better than Warriors. Worse than Wolves. So... there would be better options, but also a ton of worse.

I don't know if that is what the article is saying, but bringing in a FA quarterback is sensible. Better to overpay a few millions for a stopgap then overpay in draft picks for retreads. Nothing even approaching a franchise QB is available in FA, and those that are even solid are well past prime.
