Agree SS and Cred.

This was a chance to do it right and a unique opportunity to rebrand a franchise. Maybe it will be but seems half assed.

Re: Name Reveal 2.2.22

I assume they are doing it on the today show with Craig Melvin as he is a team "Ambassador" and it has been national news, makes sense to me. I also manage a location at 20 rock, right above the studio there, I might have to go in that day, lol

Travis Thomas (980 morning radio show .. hes lot of energy and a ball of fun)

he made a good point today .. the team (julie/wright etc) are trying. At least they are trying.

we are all collectively probably not an easy crowd to please and being instantly negative

perhaps were being to hard, just being hatters

The Today Show.

Yea that's our Danny. Gotta come storming out of the gate for everything.

No matter what one thinks of the name change, it was done under duress and so not the greatest look for a franchise. Especially one with a long record of bad looks.

Seems to me an owner who had to be forced to change a name and is under more scrutiny than ever for various transgressions might just want to be a little more subtle and modest about this.

But hey, that's just me and 21st Century Hype is just that.

Expect Dan to be in his best Napoleonic pose as he presents the DC Commanders for the first time.

I wonder if he got a new hoodie for this event, or maybe he'll be sporting a new Commanders Onesie.

Same piss poor management thru and thru.

2.2 I’ll have Snyder and select participants acting as fans to cheer Snyder.
2.4 will have JoeT and Green with the fans but no Snyder to boo.

We'll all know in a couple of weeks now. I reserve the right to be disappointed and pissed off, but I'll still be there, and there's nothing we can do about it anymore.

Re: Name Reveal 2.2.22

I just noticed that on the teams website for the video “making the brand” episode 3, it refers to “the people’s team.” Honestly, that would really be terrible. The people have been leaving this team in droves for the last 20+ years (except for idiots like us) and it’s an obvious, bad facsimile for America’s team (which is also presumptuous and easily hated). Please don’t do this - whatever the name and logo, don’t do this.

I hope they don't include that either but I think its a reference to the "people's house" aka the White house as well as tongue in cheek slight at the cowboys. Either way it's stupid.

Re: Name Reveal 2.2.22

Most likely will be Commanders or Admirals.

Re: Name Reveal 2.2.22

Commanders, Admirals .............aren't very good.


Red Wolves or Sentinels would have been cool!
