(NPR)   Internet detectives have definitively figured out the new name of The Washington Football Team. And if history's taught us one thing, it's that internet detectives are never wrong   (npr.org) divider line

Maybe. Maybe not. Internet detectives are very bad at spotting misinformation.

It's a dumb name. Obviously all the good ones were taken.

St Louis Battlehawks FTW...Ca Caw!!...Ca Caw!!

LMAO

I guess the Washington Toxic Masculinities was too on the nose.

Washington Football Team is a perfectly cromulent name.

*crosses fingrs* Come on, Washington Team Football. Let it be Washington Team Football. And put WTF on every helmet. Do it. Let's go.

I disagree.

I purchased CherryTrees.com and WoodenTeeth.com, so I'm hoping the sleuths are wrong.

well that name would hit many marks, being a solid name for a sports franchise , being non offensive.   So I could see it being accurate time will tell of course.

I would still like to have seen the Redtails name used.    With a logo to salute the Tuskegee airmen.

" The Harassers" would be good considering their owner
"The Coverups"
"Washington Witness Tamperers"

Will the use a picture of Al "I'm in charge" Haig as a team logo?

Lol... like a team owned by Dan Snyder has anything figured out.

Whatever it is they will still suck and have awful leadership. It is funny the next day there is a hearing in congress over their sexual harassment.

That name is as farking stupid as all the other names that have been floated.  I, along with all my fellow WFT fans with whom I've spoken, have decided that we like WFT just fine.

I have said many times give this team and its owner to St Louis and call them the Redbirds.

I've been trying to get used to the Washington DC Football Commanders #DCFC The People's Team for almost a month now. I'm fine with it.

I was hoping for Potomacs, although Porkers in honor of the hogs was a good'n, Porkbelly being just a little too over the top.  Pigskins with the 'skins (which I've called them for years) would have been ok.  I despite Commanders and will call them the Commies as a result.  I'm ok with WFT as I can then dyslexia call them the WTF's.  If only Dwarf Snyder will croak; calling Jeff Bezos. . .

Wouldn't that better suit a team that's closer to Tuskegee?  Like...Alabama?

It's a lousy name so there's a good chance the rumor is true.

This has been planned out by Danny boy and co.

They release the new name on 2/2, and when he goes to Congress the next day, he'll say, "sorry but we are now the Washington x (whatever name is chosen), the WFT is not us anymore, so therefore all charges will be dropped.  Kthxbye"

The Washington Engines of Democracy.  Or just Washington Engines for short. Duh.
 
2022-01-28 7:27:21 PM  
It's strong evidence.  But I guess there's a chance it's a misdirect, or some other big company is getting into using the Commanders name.

All they had to do was change their logo/mascot to a potato.

I'll be waiting for the claims of systemic reinforcement of the male power dynamic and the proliferation of abuse by authority figures within the military.

There is always an angle for offense.
