2022, A new name, logo and anniversary.

Postby Redskins44 » Tue Mar 23, 2021 4:42 pm

In 2022, this Washington Football Team will unveil a new team name and logo. It will also be celebrating another historic mark, as the team will celebrate 90 seasons in the NFL. As a new team name will be in effect, I wonder if the team will wear a special patch on their jerseys honoring their 90th season in the NFL, with out the new name or logo? I prefer a basic patch celebrating the teams 90th season in the NFL.

Report coming out that Snyder has worked out the financials to buy out the minority owners he's been battling with these last several months. Also saying that they might just keep WFT as the official name, but we'll see.

wow, if that's the case, and the team name remains just WFT, I hope the team brings back the traditional helmet stripes, and remove the numbers from the sides.

They've always been (since they moved there) the Washington Football Team. What they are saying is that you can tell us to remove our name, but we refuse to rename the team. We'll just be the Washington Football Team. And that means they will always be known as the Redskins as the name was never replaced.

That may be the push by many fans. The media, however, is going to have fun with this.

Personally Wolves or Red Wolves is still my favorite. I don't want anything to do with government. Who wants to be reminded of work? I think if they stay WFT then the Redskins will be the unofficial name. Personally, this needs to be put to bed in some form or fashion.

:P

I like WFT and keeping colors. I would like to see them put this on pause and see if they can secure a stadium site in DC. If they could get a stadium in D.C. the name WFT would be more meaningful. If not change it to wolves or warriors or whatever.

Technically they are the VA/MD Football Team since they play in Maryland and practice in VA. The "name" Washington Football Team is patently ridiculous and everyone knows it. Just a pitiful attempt to make a statement. If Howard U still has a team, they are the Washington Football Team as much as the (not) Redskins.

After Wright made his speech and some of the jokes about WFT, the team appears to be headed for a new name in 2022. I am still a fan of Wolves or Red Wolves, but WFT just is too generic.

Above all else, I want to see some wins and the division in 2021. That is what is important.

The Washington Wombats? I have heard a lot worse! I guess we'd be the "Bats" for short (or the "Wombs"?) and that might confuse Nationals fans. Although maybe not...:)

Here are some to throw around, although it's basically a done deal...Archives-Potomacs[the names is French]- Diplomats-Senators[yes I know, about the old baseball team]- Federals [don't laugh-that other team was a long time ago]-Express[speed kills].

Even though most teams names end in plural, i actually dont mind if it doesnt, as you have with Express. Another name like that i could live with would be the Washington Rampage, but wonder if too many of the "offendeds" would think that it reminds them of Indians on the Warpath. Warpath is another non-plural name i like, but zero chance on that one. I do like Wolves and actually really dont mind WFT. I've heard Defenders, not my favorite. No matter the name, i really hope they come up with a cool design/logo.
I know that Guardians was brought up also, but the pathetic cancel culture determined that the word Indians was racist, so in MLB we now have the Cleveland Guardians.

Amen! I support keeping the name WFT with the exceptions of the original name Braves, the former name and still known worldwide by everyone that counts as the "Redskins", or possibly the Hogs.

Other than that, keep it WFT, because it being generic makes a statement all on it's own! Just go with plain burgundy helmets(no stripes, or nothing), except when we play Dallas, make'm gold with the old R in the middle!

I like Sentinels as well. It doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue but it has a certain class to it.

Latest rumor : The new name will be Commanders, Wolves or Redtails. I hate Redtails. I could be ok with either Commanders or Wolves, but with either, the design/logo/emblem has to be hard-hitting for me to really dig it. Either way, not matter what name it is I'm sure it will eventually grow on me...but i still dont want Redtails.

As much as I like Wolves, and think that they could make it really cool, my gut ( and money if i had to bet ) would be on Commanders. They could incorporate not only Washington DC history, but obviously the military also. I do like our current helmets with the numbers on them. Maybe they could either surround the number with something classic? Another idea would be to place the number in the middle of a military medal, obviously not a medal that incorporate a star.

I agree.. Wolves or Commanders but they have to knock the logo and uniforms out of the park. I think Commanders make more sense but wolves or Redwolves would be ok as well.

It has to be one of those eight listed. And it cant be WFT. Makes no sense to hype this just to keep that name.

Out of that list I like Redwolfs or Redhogs.

i'd just have wolves or hogs. the 'red' was part of 'redskins' and hence part of the issue. keep the colours but no need for any mention of red.
