The Washington Football Team has launched a new website stating that “the future of Washington Football arrives in 2022.” The Football Team will still be known as the Football Team for the 2021 season, but will re-brand itself with a new nickname starting in 2021. The website includes a page where fans can submit ideas for new names and uniforms; some of those ideas have already been posted.
I’ll be honest, I’ll be sad to see the Football Team go. As amateurish and desperate as it seemed when first announced, it quickly stood out as unique among NFL franchises. It helped that it lent itself to an elegantly simple set of uniforms, which were easy on the eyes and also set them apart from the rest of the league.
