But at least it's over, time to move on, as a fan or not, everyone has a choice.
They just ended a livestream at the stadium and had three mannequins modeling the unis. I wish we had a full look at the helmets!

Fuck the stars.
Washington commanders hasn’t won shit. Dan is still riding old glory’s dick.
3 stars is the DC flag fyi.

I like the home uni's. I like the alternate logo with the stars and commemorating the titles. But the away uni's are very reminiscent of the Falcons/Cardinals and the black alternates are so generic - much in the way Commanders is a generic name. It doesn't evoke any strong imagery or bring to mind any specific leader in world history. Guess generic sports team names are the way of the future.

He is a puppet company man.

Agree. The biggest mistake they made was doing this on the Today Show. The entire intro to the reveal was about the racist name, scandals, and congressional investigation. IMO, that sucked the life out of it right from the start. I've seen baby gender reveals with more pizzazz and excitement than this. An underwhelming reveal from an underwhelming organization.

Well that cheered me up a bit.

And not having any sort of video to make the announcement. Like I respect the hell out of Doug Williams but to simply have him go "we're the Commanders" without even any sort of intro speech or anything after this 2 years process was beyond underwhelming...

And can we take a sec to talk about that aborted fist bump between Jon Allen and the interviewer ? The f was that, talk about swag and excitement.

With a person in charge like Dan Snyder, why would you expect anything more. He never wanted to do this in the first place, he was forced to, so it was half assed...just like everything he's done here. Two years to plan it and execute it...and a big fail. Even if he put all this in Jason Wright's hands and this is what Jason came up with, it's still on Dan...because he made the decision to do so. This is why we are where we are with this team.

There was nothing about this to get anyone excited. IMO, if they had had an over the top announcement with lots of excitement and flash it would have got people excited just from the excitement. But when the team officials making the announcement didn't seem enthusiastic why should the fans be?
