I feel like I already knew that they were just going with numbers on the helmet for a few weeks now.

I think I also would have preferred the old paint scheme instead of the metallic, but that's just me.

That is just terrible. Why on earth did they not just roll with the classic spear design?

Because they are no longer the redskins. As such, that would defeat the entire purpose of what they are doing in the first place. Stop dunking on Snyder for the wrong reasons.

I'll go drive by the practice facility tomorrow and see if they're flying a big flag saying "Football Team."

Dan Snyder is a true farking idiot's farking idiot.


During one of Snyder's first court battles over the name (Spurrier era), he secured the rights to the name Warriors as a backup. That's also when he started rolling out this spear design on throwback uniforms. His intention was to make it the new permanent uniform for the Warriors if he had to change it.

I already follow a team without helmet markings, talent, or a chance of winning.

I drove by on Friday and the Redskins bus was still prominently parked right out front.

Bingo. And I question whether there even is a "wrong reason" to dunk on Snyder.

They'll be "football team" for the season. That way, Danny gets revenue from people buying up old Skins stuff, WFT stuff this season, and whatever the new swag is next season.

He's a shiatstain, but he's not stupid when it comes to milking people for every possible dime.

what I don't get is why whoever made this decided to use a mylar balloon and not an actual helmet.

If they had a sense of humor, they'd lean into it and do that.

They'd also just have the most generic possible TEAM in a generic font on the side of their helmet, like when TV shows back in the day just put big fake labels on things so they weren't placing product.

But if they had a sense of humor, they wouldn't run NFL teams.

I like the numbers on the side of the helmets, it's kind of a throwback style.

I drove by a few min ago.  No Redskins flag.  Some cars and buses, but nothing prominent.
