Washington's New Name: Commanders
NFL Super Bowl - Washington announced its new name this morning, "not the best kept secret in Washington" according to owner Daniel Snyder. They are now the Washington Commanders. What do we all think? I'm sure we all have something we preferred. I still liked the idea of "Washington Pigskins." Maybe this is the best name they could get the trademark and URL rights for. There are new uniforms too, and a slightly different "W" logo. It's a military connection, but now we can call them the Washington Commies.
What bothers me most is the new crest, with the years that Washington won the championship, because it lists the years of the Super Bowls (1983, 1988, 1992) instead of the years of the seasons (1982, 1987, 1991). Who refers to Washington as the champions of 1992? That's just weird.
