Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

I, too, became fan because of the name, at least indirectly. It was at the 90s in school when Football became popular over here and everyone in my school was rooting for the cowboys - I picked the biggest rival, in name and reality.

But honestly, since I grew up with European Soccer at a time where about zero teams hat official names (my team had the nickname the Red Devils, but it was never announced or seen in statistics) I even do not see the big problem with Washington Football Team. If the announcers weren´t so stupid to always announce "the football team" instead of Washington, it would also not sound bad on TV.

I get the want for a cool and new name and I am all for it. But it would not end my fanship if there is none or if it is stupid or boring.

Personally, Snyder and his mountain of BS bothers me a lot more than what the team is called. He's the main reason I don't give a fuck anymore and why my fandom will probably continue to fade.

I love the NFL though, I can honestly be pretty happy watching the other 31 teams.
Agree. If this team was a perennial playoff team and SB contender nobody would care what they are called. Now that they are total garbage from top to bottom the magnitude of changing the name and logo are magnified by powers of 10.

I'm guessing it means as soon as the season ends. They said early 2022 multiple times, I don't see why they would take any chance and announce it earlier:

-If they start losing then the new name is a curse and they had better stuck with the no name...
-If they keep on winning, well build on the enthusiasm and have something to keep fans engaged up until FA and the draft !

I see no benefit for them in announcing it before the season ends. Including the potential playoffs (playoffs?!).

I thought they would announce it like in March, or just before the draft... maybe this "very soon" means January/February, which in term of finalizing the launching of a multi billion dollars franchise, is indeed "very soon".

Hopefully they announce it within a week of our last game, whenever that may be.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

Very unconfirmed rumor but Washington Commanders is trending on Twitter right now because someone's sister's brother's cousin at New Era is mass producing Commanders gear.

Disagree but at this point they have already decided and it will be whatever.

My take is that Commanders would be a very RR/DS choice. RedWolves (or Wolves) would mean they actually listened to the fans.

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins

I bet the will keep the W (like the bears do with the C) and use that as the main logo. Put that on the helmets and call themselves the commanders or whatever and have a 2nd logo (like the bears do) just a guess

Maybe I'm wrong, but it makes no sense to me that they would be "mass producing" anything right now. Like they would have everything ready and maybe a couple of jerseys ready for photo shoots... But it's 2021, they know if they mass produce anything it'll get leaked out, don't they ?
