Hey, he's a master, Bateman is.  It'll be a handful and lots will come forth, but I expect a happy ending.

Whatever he chooses for the new name, it won't be as good as what Mitch Taylor's Bro sumbitted in that Fark thread of suggested names: Washington Kickbacks.

For the team's sake I hope he doesn't go with one of those internet name generators, like you are the town you grew up in and the last major Washington Post story about your horrible sexist business practices.

the team said Bateman would spearhead the name change

Shouldn't he be tomahawk chopping it?

They hired the wrong Terry to set Snyder straight.

Growing up I had a thing in a "girl next door" kind of way for Justine Bateman in Men Behaving Badly.

I never trademarked it, so it's theirs if they want it.

Can't find a Baterman?

Bateman has long had ties to owner Dan Snyder. He was the president of Snyder Communications' marketing services division from 1994 to '97. He also was Washington's chief marketing officer in 2006

Sounds promising, I think they've turned a corner here

They're going to get all these new fans once they change the name. Or is that not how cancel culture works?

That rolling stones cover was so bad, not even a decent movie part could save her career

Nope, not one single new fan will suddenly care about the team because of the name change.
