Washington's football team renamed Washington Football Team

Fri Jul 03, 2020 11:23 am

Nike pulled all of their gear from their stores, guess that got Danny Snyder thinking more seriously about it lol...

I honestly have no clue which way they're going to go with this. Are they going to stick with the Native American theme or just change it completely? Not being a fan, I personally don't have a preference so I'm curious to see what they end up deciding, if anything.

Red Tails makes a bunch of sense. Keep the colors in the logo and it would pay tribute to the military and African-American soldiers as well.

Sounds like the announcement is coming tomorrow. I didn't have a suggestion about what it would be but Red Tails would be awesome.

I’ve heard Red Wolves. Apparently it’s got some military bend to it.

Just heard on the radio that some dude took out patents / trademarks on several possible names Washington might adopt, had several thousand dollars of merchandise made up and started selling it online to show that he's using the patent.

This is fairly typical of most major bits of news like this. The NFL will either pay them off or lawyer up until they can't afford it anymore.

so they have become the TBD's ... makes sense for them to wait until next year for a real name since there wasn't really enough time to make all the changes and get the legal crap all sorted in time for 2020

Yeah, all the merchandising and trademark stuff takes a while. What a weird time to be alive.

The Washington Continentals (George Washington's Continental Army)

The Washington Spies (The Culper Spy Ring that defeated the British)

However, my favorite is:

The Washington Football Team

I'm not kidding. I like the way that sounds. I like the way their jerseys look. I like the numbers on the helmet. It's all very old school.
