  1. Washington's best home look is burgundy over gold hands down, and its a shame they moved away from that look. Sure, it would've been better to make a new pair with the double stripe rather than recycle the throwback pants and socks, but with all the teams out there with striping inconsistencies who really cares. When I was younger I liked the idea of burgundy over burgundy but after seeing it its not a great look, but I would still go burgundy over white for one or two games a year to switch it up. I was glad to see the white on white look return for Washington as well last year. My favorite years going to games was 05-07, so seeing those uniforms again reminded me of that awesome defense and how much fun I had watching this team in that era. You still can't go wrong with the classic white over burgundy, so I'd want both of those sets at least 4 times a year. One thing is for certain though, they need to go back to wearing white at home against Dallas.
  2. I'm not a fan of this new rule and its mainly because it goes against everything I've ever known and I liked the structure behind the old rule. Before, it was relatively easy to determine what position someone is and with the new rules its going to be really weird seeing single digits and teens on defense seeing as I never watch college football. I'm also not a fan of opening up numbers to certain positions and not others, they should've just done away with it completely and let anyone wear any number if they're gonna go this route. I would've rather unretired numbers across the league to open some more up but it is what it is.
  3. Unfortunately I'm pretty sure they've dropped the navy brimmed hat, I liked that one way better than the all red and think that should have been the primary. As far as what the primaries are for this year, I'm not sure but I'm in the same belief as you.
  4. I like this! I haven't been a fan of the standardized logos but at least this one has some personality!
  5. I thought about mocking that up but went the direction I did that way it would be more reminiscent of the DC flag
  6. I've been a fan of this franchise for years so its been a little weird not having an official name, but I've come to embrace the idea of the Washington Football Team. It seems like the favorites among fans for a new name is Redwolves or Red Tails, but I'm not really into either one as I don't want a full rebrand, I'd rather continue the legacy of the last 88 years without feeling like an expansion team. I read an article where Snyder admitted he's opening to keeping the Football Team name full time if fans embrace it, but I wouldn't be surprised if he just does whatever he wants anyways. I've always loved the uniforms and colors so I was happy to see them relatively unchanged, but the one thing they mess with was the helmet and its a huge downgrade! With my concept, I brought the helmet back to its former glory, added a a pair of throwback uniforms, and put my own spin a secondary logo idea I saw on these boards a few months ago. Lets start with the primary uniforms, I've brought back the gold pants full time at home because they are the burgundy and gold after all. I've also changed the helmet by bringing the stripes back because it looks so plain and boring without them. I've also dropped the terrible numbers from the side and replaced it with the primary W logo. I also added stripes to the burgundy stripes to the socks to match the jersey. The road uniform goes untouched because its such a classic look. I've kept the white pants as an alternative as well that way there are options. I've always thought the white on white look was very clean and reminds me of my favorite times watching this team during the Gibbs 2.0 era. They were never that great despite a couple of playoff runs, but that defense was exciting to watch! Now its time for some throwbacks. Washington has had some really nice uniforms in the past but the one helmet rule really limits what you can do here. The 70th Anniversary is one of my favorite looks and I like the current one as well but hate the look of the two shades of burgundy together. That leaves the 70s as the only good option here so I went for both a home and a road look and switched the facemask to gray for an accurate look. If they ever get rid of the one helmet rule you could easily bring back the yellow helmets with these sets or go with one of the previously mentioned uniforms. Here is a helmet render And finally, the secondary logo. I saw someone else make a version of this here on the boards earlier in the year. Originally I made the football burgundy with gold stars and stripes but decided to change the colors around so it would match closer with the actual DC flag Hail To The Team!
  7. That snarling wolf logo is great! I'd love to see that on the helmet of your revised uniforms from 8/27. The only other thing I would personally change is to go with the traditional block number font. With those changes it would be a perfect set in my opinion.
  8. I'm a fan and I'm on board with the name Washington Football Team, just need to makes some changes to the helmet and it will be perfect! I don't think we'll get a new name now regardless of what fans say though.
  9. I'm a fan of this franchise and hope the Football Team becomes permanent, but they have to scrap the horrible helmets. Bring back the stripes and slap the W on the side and you'd have a perfect uniform!
  10. Yes but they also changed the name on the front of the chest to Washington
  11. It's too bad they had to ruin the helmet this year. It would've looked great if they had kept the stripes and gone with the 'W' on the sides rather than the stupid numbers.
  12. Honestly, when this whole name change thing came up this time, I would've been perfectly content if they would've just dropped Redskins and not replace it with another nickname, just be known as Washington like the media has been calling them anyways.
  13. I'm not surprised and I wouldn't expect you to. And yes I do know that just because I don't have any experience with it doesn't mean that it isn't hurtful to others. Obviously I need to do some research on the origin and meaning and refrain from anymore comments until I have done my due diligence.
  14. If that's what you asked to be called then sure, I would oblige. However, I would never call somebody that out of the blue. I may be naive to the meaning of the word and haven't done any research on it myself, but in my 30 years on this earth, I have never personally heard anyone use it as a racial slur or anything else for that matter other than to refer to the football team here in Washington. I know you have to take everything on the internet with a grain of salt and do your own research, but I've heard Redskin be called a racial slur by some, others say it came about from scalping, and I've also heard that its a term that originated as a self identifier by the Native Americans themselves so I'm not really sure what's true and what's not.
  15. I'm sorry for getting off topic, I was just curious about what the future may hold. I agree with you about glorification, but do you think it would be acceptable to continue using the logo without the team name in the HOF? I believe that could be used as an educational setting on the history of the league.
