Washington

Ya know after 2 years of the former "Redskins" being known as just Washington (FB Team) ....

I am getting comfortable with them just being referred to as "Washington".  

It doesn't demine Native Americans, and it doesn't require a moniker (nickname).  All in all it's a nice touch to what they should be.

Should have just shortened it to Skins and gone Jersey less.

I like it too.  And the unis look great with the old school numbers on the helmets.

Made me think of this....I know it's not football, but I KNOW you will appreciate this:

The Devils are taking a beating on social media with it too; and it is internets gold.

Just got back from my basketball game.  I am not gonna lie, that "Shirts" comment took me a second.  LOL.

It is the most "blah" name in professional sports.....

Living in the area for years, they deserve an identity....WFT is not one.  Used to love their band and their fight song.  RFK back in the day during the Gibbs era was a rocking place.  

Let's just hope its better than the Cleveland Guardians....

I have friends from Cleveland and they didn't even know about the "Guardians on the Bridge"....  Should have been SPIDERS!  

Let's do all we can do get Football in line with Futbol.   WFT is right there!  😏    I keed, I keed....

The WFT will announce their new name at a press conference Feb. 2. Until then, the name is a closely guarded secret. But I’m guessing the choice of Feb. 2 as a launch date is not a coincidence. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Washington Groundhogs. It plays right into the old Redskins’ “Hogs” legacy!
