Former Redskins to unveil new name in February

Source: Fox News

“The Washington Football Team will have a new identity come February. Team president Jason Wright announced Tuesday that Washington will unveil its new name on Feb. 2, more than a year after retiring their previous one over mounting pressure that the team name (established in the 1930s) was racist toward Native Americans. … Washington announced in August that the team had narrowed their search down to a few potential names, including the Washington Presidents, Brigade, Redhogs, Football Team, Commanders, Armada, Defenders and Redwolves. But Wright said Tuesday that the final option, or a variation of it, was ruled out because of trademark troubles.” [editor’s note: Still should just call them the Lizards, after the main denizens of the “city” – SAT] (01/04/22)
