Washington Football Team will finally unveil their two-year long rebrand next month
This morning, the Washington Football Team announced that their official rebrand would be debuting on February 2, 2022. For the last two years, there have been countless rumors flying around about their new nickname, and finally, it looks like we’ll have an answer next month.
Honestly, I don’t mind the Washington Football Team as the name of the franchise. It’s plain and boring, just like their team. Regardless, there was no need to take this long to find a new name and logo for the franchise, but given the fact that they still have “Redskins” branding inside FedEx Field, I’m not surprised in the slightest.
Shortly after the announcement, fans began to look for clues that could help reveal the franchise’s new look. One person found a website domain linked to the Washington Admirals, but that was quickly shot down. It had been discovered that somebody had held the domain since 2008, so it’s not the new name unless known idiot Dan Snyder had been planning this for 13 years.
Another domain found was for the Washington Commanders, created minutes before they officially dropped the Redskins name and logo in 2020. Using domains to find out the new name is not the best idea. Anyone can purchase a domain and have it redirected whatever they want.
For example, I could buy worstwebsite.com and redirect it to a Vox Media website.
Some of the proposed names by the franchise and fans have included the Red Tails, Red Wolves, Renegades, Rubies, and just keeping the current WFT design.
Whatever Washington decides on, I’m confident it will be the worst possible choice, which in return, will perfectly describe the franchise and their stadium, which continues to fall apart week after week.
