Effective immediately, Washington will call itself the “Washington Football Team”, pending adoption of a new name, sources tell ESPN. This is not a final renaming and rebranding for team; this is the name it wants to use until pending adoption of a new name in the future. pic.twitter.com/sBs0Uo0ICm — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 23, 2020
I seriously can’t keep writing hit pieces against Washington and Dan Snyder can I? I mean the guy makes it really easy to make fun of him and his team. They dropped the R-Words name and logo after years of controversy because the sponsors demanded it and 40% of the team is for sale and no one is buying into a team with that name. Well they sort of dropped the old name and logo, they still use the logo on twitter and today was the first time they changed their handle away from the name, but whatever, you don’t expect the best or any sort of professionalism from Dan Snyder anyways.
Since you can always expect some sort of buffoonery out of Washington and Dan Snyder the news of a temporary team name isn’t all that shocking. They probably just wanted people to stop calling them the Washington Whatever-the-Fuck-They-Are, or the Washington To-Be-Determines, or the R-Words. Now we got the Washington Football Team. Washington’s Football team will be called the Football Team. Just steer into the skid and call it the Washington Football Club. They’re about as competitive as a soccer team trying to play football so why not? This isn’t a permanent name change. This is them announcing anything, anything at all, so that people will stop ripping them a new asshole for retiring the old logo and name and still using it on all their platforms and media releases. It’s going to be so awesome when Dan Snyder’s media team comes up with all these awesome names and he just turns them all down because he misses his shitty team name and Washington has to play as Football Team all 2020 season. Just keep it Washington Football Team forever, it is not a good name but at least no one can get mad at it. Plus asking someone who do you root for and their answer having to be “Football Team” is downright histarical. I root for Football Team. Rob Lowe approved.
