Re: Welcome your Washington Commanders

I personally don't like the name of the uniforms but it is what it is at this point.

Itíll grow on you, at the end of the day itís all about wins and losses anyway. If they still suck then nobody will buy in

Re: Welcome your Washington Commanders

Don't know why I didn't think of it before, but they should have named themselves with a logo like "Prince" did. Then they couldn't say we had a racist name but they would have to call us "the football team formerly known as the Redskins." (I also liked the fact that when they blocked a video this year the message said it had been blocked by the "Washington Redskins".)

(I also thought we should call ourselves the "Cannibals" since Bezos is the one who forced the issue.) (j/k)

Re: Welcome your Washington Commanders

Trash owner
Trash name
Trash uniforms

But so glad the fan's input was so important. Except for basically no one remotely preferred that name.

Snyder you truly are a disgusting piece of shit human.

I feel like logo could have been more than a W. Maybe it's because it just sounds like a name for a team in a movie right now. Maybe it will grow on me, maybe it won't either way no point in fighting it.

I just look back at teams that recently had name changes Titans always sounded cool to me, even Texans sounded normal the first time I heard it. Idk why I just hear "Commanders" and my brain is like "Wow that is shit" I'll just keep repeating it to myself over and over so I get used to it. Yeah wins fix everything. Sidenote I always liked the name "Wizards"

At least we can say Tom Brady never beat the Commanders

What community? We took a team name from the AAFL that was used just 3 years ago.
Jason Wright was used by Snyder. But he went along with it, so he can go fuck himself. What a bitch.

Re: Welcome your Washington Commanders

One thing I hadn't really thought about, and I didn't really understand why having an easy way to shorten the name was important... Is what do you chant in the stadium... Or even at a bar... Like every 2 syllables team can say "let's go one-two" the way we used to say "let's go Redskins"... Most one syllable short nick name say "Go one go", or even just "let's go ooone"... Just trying to find a way to shout or chant something that rolls off the tong with Commanders...
You enthusiastic people have to help me out here, can't find anything...

If you knew the amount of wolves running around DC you'd understand perfectly why we want it so bad! It's a wolf epidemic!

At the end of the day he is Dan and Tanya's puppet.

That is my favorite uniform. I really like the W on the front of the helmet. No other team is doing that.

Re: Welcome your Washington Commanders

My #1 question to Wright is "Why did you think doing this on the Today show was a good idea?"

I cant for the life of me understand how any marketing person would think turning the reveal over to a network tv show that you cant control is a good idea. The intro that focused on the racist name and scandals killed the thing before it started. Plus it had to fit into the length of a Today show segment. I wonder if that's why Wright looked so shell shocked when they went to him for the name reveal. This was doomed before it started by putting it on the Today show.

That reveal was disastrous. I can't find a way to easily upload the 8min video, but if you guys wanna check it out, here's a link to download the video (available one week)
