  1. I thought about mocking that up but went the direction I did that way it would be more reminiscent of the DC flag
  2. 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!

    Washington Wolves

    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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. Yes but they also changed the name on the front of the chest to Washington
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. I never said to keep the name Redskins, I was hoping to keep the imagery the same. I was just curious about what would happen in the HOF as you can't change what's happened in the past. It never occurred to me to just remove the Redskins name and only have it say Washington there. Would you be ok if they left the logos in use for the HOF and things of that nature?
  13. It was never part of the announcement, that spurred from me questioning what will happen in the HOF and people suggesting to get rid of all ties to the Redskins.
  14. Ok, if that's the case then why isn't there complete outrage over all other teams in sports that relate to Native Americans whetherit be through name or imagery?
  15. I understand that, but I can't think of anything that has been completely eradicated. Everyone knows what a swastika, the Confederate flag, or what the 'n' word is. While I do not condone any of those, like it or not they are a part of history and something we can all learn from. If we erase all of that from history books or museums, how are we going to learn from past mistakes and make sure they're not repeated in the future?
