The Washington Commanders are here to stay.
The team announced its new name early this morning along with a coinciding hype video showing off its new uniforms.
One legacy. One unified future.

When they found out the name would be Commanders, they weren’t exactly here for it. And, well, that vibe hasn’t changed at all.
Fans aren’t exactly receiving this well.

Can we go back to Football Team instead?

It took them two whole seasons to land on “Commanders.” That rules. You could’ve gotten to the same place in three minutes on Madden create-a-team

If in fact the new name is Commanders, there is nothing NOTHING about this process that gave the fans any hope of a new direction for the franchise. And beyond the actual name, that’s the biggest takeaway #WashingtonFootball

Only “W” out of this are the black and gold uniforms https://t.co/vMkKV4RMpe

Name sucks. Logo even worse. Uniforms are nice, and so are the helmets. https://t.co/y6p2uVhDRa

I honestly liked Washington Football Team.

Of course now it seems the old name worked for some, but that wasn’t the case at first.
But some fans are just ready to get used to it.

Washington Commanders >>>>>>>> Washington Wizards lol

Like anything else it will take some getting used to.
Winning cures all, so if they come out of the gate as a playoff contender, there’s no doubt the Commanders will be embraced.
