Jerry Jones on the sale: “It’s a hallmark day,” Jones said. “I’m excited about the prospects of going into Washington and giving them some capital punishment.”

Put that shit on the bulletin board and then celebrate when Payne and Allen remove Dak’s spleen.

So the new ownership mentions a name change, but doesn't mention the colors/uniforms and your guess is they'll change the uniforms???? I'd like to play poker with you. Or in other words - hey our customers hate X, but like Y so lets change Y.

Much cheaper and easier to revamp the uniforms vs a total rebrand. Could be a solid way to meet in the middle on all of this. Just my speculation. It’s not like the uniforms were well received either.

In the end I could really care less about what the team is called. Just win.

^ This. The name will likely never be what we all want so why abandon the team colors? Reconfig the design but burgundy and gold are gospel and should not ever be ditched.

I didn’t say anything about changing the colors, I don’t see that happening

No way they change the colors. Everyone would lose their fucking minds.

Just change the name to something specific to the D.C. area. Otherwise, just leave it alone.

Does anyone think this was a shot at Jordan and his failures at being a team owner?

In my opinion it will be used to pay off John Gruden in the Law suit he has against the NFL concerning his emails which it looks like Dan Snyder leaked .

Jordan bought an NBA team for 300+mill and made 3 billion when he sold it, IMO not much of a failure.

Between Jordan and Snyder it really proves you can buy a major league sports team, fuck it up at every single opportunity, be a top 5 losing team for 20+ years and still walk away with 3-5 times what you paid for the team years ago.

To avoid controversy The D.C. Football Lakers colors will be purple and gold.

Not sure the Vikings would appreciate that. And the ant there a 5 year wait period between rebranding? I’d bet the owners/league would waive it as a “let’s wash the stink of Snyder” effort.

Keep the colors. Lose the Steelers and Gamecocks unis. Go with Wolves or Redwolves. Fight any trademark issues. Let’s go.

The 5 year wait period is essentially a myth or a rule that isn't followed or we'd still be WFT.
