  12. I think that one of the problems with the proposed names floating around is that Washington is always seen more macro than micro with everything being capital or military-focused. Why not go for something that actually reflects the history of the culture of the city itself and not those hired or elected to move in? WASHINGTON DUKES

  14. This is an official moderator warning. Due to the official announcement of the Washington NFL change, discussion will be allowed. However, please be aware that the official board policies remain in place and that any post that requires moderator intervention will be immediately reviewed for possible disciplinary action. Thank you for your cooperation.
  15. Any acknowledgement of real history instead of the recent retcon that happens all the time *cough*CLEVELANDBROWNS*cough* is perfectly fine in my book.
  16. We’ll allow for discussion once the change actually happens but for now we’re dealing with every single thread about the subject being taken over by disingenuous straw man arguments that cause the whole thing to descend into a firey hellscape. We’ve even had to start cracking down on concept threads since we’ve had three for the Washington rebrand that have become troll targets. We are though going to be taking a harder line in general when it comes to issues that are made political for no reason whatsoever.
  17. THIS IS AN OFFICIAL MODERATOR WARNING This is a thread for a rebranding concept. This is not a place to bring in your insecurities/issues/qualms/fragility/whataboutism/anti-PC rage against the rebranding of the team. Any posts about the issue have been hidden. We have already suspended a member for trolling a Washington NFL concept thread with irrelevant whataboutism and straw grasping. Don’t think that we won’t do it again. ANY MORE POSTS IN THIS THREAD ARGUING ABOUT THE OPTICS OF THE REBRAND AND NOT THE CONCEPT ITSELF WILL BE DELETED AND THE POSTER WILL FACE DISCIPLINARY ACTION.
  18. Suspension has been set at one month.
