Yeah, I bet they are looking into the cheerleaders

Remember the whole CTE scandel and how the NFL only admitted it was real after being dragged kicking and screaming in front of Congress?

I'm really glad we don't live in the dark old days of ... 2007.

Their name is "Washington Football Team"? Was, "I Dunno. We Play Sports." taken?

It's a protest name after the NFL forced the team to stop using the old racist name of Redskins. Yes, the team is that toxic. They have drawn out the process of picking out a new name for quite a while now. Probably again because Snyder is mad at being forced to change the team name.

I find it difficult to believe Daniel Snyder would create a workplace culture less positive than his 151-206-1 record as owner.

I'm just glad we live in a time so peaceful and well organized that this is a pressing matter for Congress to attend to. :]

That, and he dragged his feet for so long that someone bought up the domain names of almost every possible name they could switch to and Snyder didn't want to pay up for them.

A name change is expensive, there are a ton of things that need to be redesigned, reprinted, recreated, etc. It will cost millions because things add up quickly. So they've paid to change everything to the generic Washington Football Team. And they're going to have to pay again when they actually have a new name.

It's a very dumb move financially so Danny Boy having a tantrum and stomping his tiny foot is the only good explanation. He thinks he showing the NFL who's boss. But the NFL is never going to relent and let him go back to Redskins.

He's one of those people who doesn't realize that he's the one who looks like an idiot in this situation.

Looking for a distraction, any distraction.

Ignore all the lies about their massive spending bills.

This. The intern that hammered out that letter could have been getting coffee or something.

Except the Cleveland Indians did it this year and will be the Cleveland Guardians starting next season. New logos and graphics, the whole thing. No "Cleveland Baseball Team" for five seasons. It was hard but necessary.

Dan Snyder is just being a jerk about it.

As a Dallas Cowboys fan, I am perfectly fine with the WFT front office. For a while there it was only the Cowboys with the clusterfark front office in the NFC East. Then along came Dan Snyder. Funny thing is Jerry and Stephen figured things out some, while Snyder continues to run the WFT into the ground.

It's kind of nice seeing the Eagles and Giants front offices go the way of the WFT too. Both, like Dallas with Jimmy Johnson, were so eager to get the previous guard out of there, who had actually won.

Thanks everyone for clearing things up for me. This row has been going on for some time now so unless the team is solely owned by Snyder and his family, one would think more sensible people would have had mock ups for new logos and such.

As for Cleveland's baseball team, the NFL is a more profitable league and the Redskins a more profitable team so I would imagine there would be a more stringent approval process.

But I barely know shiat about professional sports so I'm probably talking out my Khyber.
