Washington To Change Nickname, Possibly Before Start Of 2020 Season 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jul 3, 2020 5:27 pm

Washington is now expected to change its nickname in the near future, possibly before the start of the 2020 season.

One person with knowledge of the situation told the Post: “It’s not a matter of if the name changes but when.”

A source also said the change could “potentially” happen before the team opens the regular season, with another source saying “it’s trending that way.”

Considering how long this has been a topic of discussion, it's amazing how quickly they're moving now that a few sponsors lean on them.

Wouldn't surprise me that after review, the Redskins get another corporation for naming rights to the stadium.

Even if you ignore the racist nature of the name and logo, the nickname has nothing to do with DC. Or am I missing something?
Why the team names cannot be just DC Football Club or something?
