Lot of rumours out there but still no Washington Post article on the Redskins. If any of this is true it's going to be a massive story, so I guess everybody is getting lawyered up. Will be very interesting to see if they release anything soon.
Washington will call itself the "Washington Football Team" until it adopts a new name, the franchise announced Thursday.
Effective immediately, Washington will call itself the "Washington Football Team" pending the adoption of a new name, the franchise announced.
This is not a final renaming and rebranding for the team; this is the name it wants to use until the adoption of a new name at some point.
The team will continue the process of retiring the former name and hopes to be entirely rid of it on physical and digital spaces in the next 50 days, by the Sept. 13 regular-season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.
