The Washington Football team is no more, and the fan base wishes it was. Why? Because they hate everything about the new nickname.
Aside from the Commanders name sounding like an indoor football team, the team dropped their new uniforms and logo as well. That too wasn’t well received.
Here are a bunch of reactions on Twitter:
Washington retired its former name in July 2020 after decades of complaints that it was racist toward Native Americans. The organization opted to use the name Washington Football Team as a temporary placeholder, although the name had seemingly grown on the fan base.
Aside from the name change, Washington has suffered a number of controversies both on and off the field.
They may be rebranded, but the old problems still remain the same.
