Unfortunately that is probably true. Additionally, the name likely caused a majority of Redskins fans to move on (primarily in the diaspora which made up the majority of fans) and once a new name is picked more will move on. So yes I can see fewer and fewer wearing Redskins gear at the games and other places in the coming years.

Youíre right. If the team picks a cool mascot AND the most popular team name as evidenced by fan mail, polls, etc , such as to the Washington RED WOLVES that whole name transition will accelerate very rapidly. The team also has some young players about to break out and become legit stars: Young, McLaurin, Haskins. That will make people want their favorite playerís jerseys which can either be the anemic WFT logo or the RED WOLVES!

I canít remember when the Eagles went from that Irish green (called Kelly green) jersey color to their darker, harder green jerseys. I think it was 1996. It wasnít even a name change, just a color change. The change was gradual. Now 24 years later not one in 100 Eagles fans are still in the old green.

If the WFT chooses a wildly popular team name & logo AND some current young players start to become real team stars AND the team starts finally winning youíll see the fans move over to the new logo quickly. WFT gear will go right away. In just two years, with hot stars making a serious run in the playoffs and every fan will want to join the party with the new logo!! In ten years youíll see a few Redskin curmudgeons or die hards, but the vast majority will be with the RED WOLVES stuff.
