The Washington football team revealed its new name on February 2; won’t be Wolves, RedWolves

WASHINGTON – Washington’s NFL team announced Tuesday that it will reveal its new name on February 2, and it won’t be Wolves or RedWolves.

Commander, Admiral, Armanda, Brigade, Sentinels, Defenders, Red Hogs, President and status quo “Washington Soccer Team” were among the other finalists.

“We are on the verge of starting a new chapter, but our history, our legacy cannot be lost along the way.” Team president Jason Wright said in an episode of the show “Make a Brand” produced by the group. “Now, more than ever, it’s important for us to stay connected to our roots. We understand the importance of choosing a name that makes sense: a name that will stick with the team for 90 years. next year and beyond.”

Wright said the decision was not made with Wolves or RedWolves because of the trademark held by other organisations. Those abilities have been favored by Washington fans.

The new helmet and uniform will feature the franchise’s signature burgundy and gold colors, with three stars on the collar and stripes on the shoulders of the plain shirt. In a “Branding” clip showing him looking at one of the helmets, trainer Ron Rivera said: “I love this. That’s right. I think the look is going to be hot. “

A reveal trailer includes a “W” icon appearing.

The video contains the messages: “Hail to the greats who laid the foundations of our legacy”, “Hello to the fans we consider family”, “We were and always are Washington”, “We will fight for our community” and “We will define our future together.”

Images of the franchise’s greats have been mixed with current players meeting with servicemen and fans.

The organization dropped its old name in July 2020 after decades of complaints that it was racist against Native Americans and recent pressure from team sponsors. The decision was made to call the Washington Soccer Team that season, which will last around 2021 while the senior office undergoes a lengthy rebranding process.
“Our journey to a new identity has been a marathon, not a sprint,” says Wright. “To do it right, we have to take every step of the process seriously, and the destination is the sum total of all those parts.”

Washington is the first of North America’s four major professional sports leagues to move away from the Native American image in the national context of the race. Cleveland in Major League Baseball followed suit, adopting the new name Guardians now in effect after settling a lawsuit against a rolling soccer team of the same name.

The MLB’s Atlanta Braves and the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks have defended keeping their names.

Wright made it clear during the rebranding that Washington would not use any kind of Native American imagery in the future. He, Rivera, and others have mentioned wanting to honor the franchise’s one-time tradition, which includes three Super Bowl championships.

“I just think the heritage and history of our team is what’s so important, and as a fan, I think we’ll rally around that team,” said Hall of Fame coach Joe Gibbs. Fame said. “I’d say maybe what’s more important in naming the team is trying to bring everyone together. … That’s what we get for ourselves is the loyalty that we have. for that team.”

Washington has not had much activity in or out of the field in recent years. The union fined the team $10 million after an investigation into workplace conduct, owner Dan Snyder argued with minority partners before buying their shares, senior office received the criticism this season for a safety breach late in retiring Sean Taylor’s jersey and over 15 years the team hasn’t won a knockout game.
