I don't think it has been. I'm saying YOUR offering of it is one of the better options I've seen.

OH ! well shoot, doubt it has any legs . 😞

I kid you not! 🤪

If we change our name to the Redtails, that will be it for me. 

I would love to explain why, but we're not allowed to discuss certain topics here so I'll leave it at that.

What I can say is this...

I sure hope we pick a name that unifies all groups of people & that we all can celebrate this team & new name together.

I love the coach & players on this team & want to root for them to win it all.

But if we change our name due to social pressure & more divide?

That will be that, for me.

I lost my brother in Jan in 21' who was a huge Giants fan. We both respected each other's teams & their history behind it.

I'm about done with football all together, because of all the Flag kneeling stuff & all the extra crap that doesn't belong in football.

Everyone should be included.

It would be nice to have a cool name pull me back in with the way Rivera has built this team. I think they're really close to being a very dangerous team.

I sure hope that is not ruined for a political correctness, social pressure name that reminds me everyday what I already see playing out before my very eyes.

That this Country is done!

Prove me wrong, Washington.

Please, prove me wrong.

I still love the game of football

NFL is sure making it hard to just enjoy the game. Caving in to satisfy a certain group of people is not the way to unify people and keeping politics out of sports. I believe they will pay a heavier price if they continue on this road, since it has started already with viewership and attendance.

We've been down this road ad nauseum. The team name was a racial slur. We all gotta grow up at some point and accept that. It was changed due to monetary and political pressure, yes, but that was the way it was going to get done. Doesn't change that it was hurtful to a group of people, small or not.

If it's just outside of you hating the name, I don't get it.

No name will be 100% accepted by everyone.

That's already happened.

That’s not my point. I get the name change. I’m talking about what the NFL is doing to now to satisfy a group of people as far as 2 National Anthems, Names on helmets… that’s what I’m referring to not the name change. When the Cowboys wanted to put the names on their uniforms/helmets of the fallen police officers NFL wouldn’t let them. NFL is doing a bad job being divisive and the unification of people. 
Just keep any of this out of sports. It shouldn’t be part of any games.

Okay, broader picture on your post, got it. I think no matter what though, with the way America is divided today, you're going to piss off 50% of it. The "minority" that is upset can be loud, on either side of any argument. We're seeing that.

Anyone ever mentioned "Legion" like the Romans? They always seemed to wear a shade of burgundy and gold in the old movies. "Hail to the Legion. Hail victory. Heroes on the march, fight! for ol D C. "

One of those short swords they used for infighting could be the logo. Hail Ceasar !

 

Caesar was a badass, but aren't we supposed to be all politically correct?  Rome was one of the biggest empires in the history of the world and they got that way by conquering, killing, occupying and enslaving other peoples.  

The first thing we need to ask ourselves about any name is whether it could offend people or is a touchy subject.  This is why I also think both military names or political names are a bad idea.  For instance, whatever your feelings are on the subject, Monuments has been a touchy issue recently.  

No one is offended by WFT except the fans so that seems the most logical :)

Well, they've said they're keeping the B&G colors.

So maybe Legion, or something with those colors are possibilities?

This was the name that I submitted 😊

Guys, I would urge you all to proceed with caution. The road I think some of you are about to go down (even with the best and honest of intentions) is not one that ends well.

In all seriousness...

The perfect name for our Washington Football Team.

 https://images.app.goo.gl/Cn1cDKEbX32yUo8q7 

Washington Ironmen (instead of ironman) since we should go plural.

Football team....gridiron....

And the colors which we are keeping are a 100% perfect match.

Plus, ironman is badass!

It's the perfect name, imo.

Not to mention, they could play the song "ironman" by Black Sabbath before every game. Which is a bad *** song.
