So outside of removing the logo and helmet stripe and the old nickname from the front of the jersey, nothing has changed all that much.

Numbers on the helmets? I like that. Only good thing here. WTF. 

I dig these...on my post I also would like toned the gold pants as a alternate option and either a burgundy or a dark grey facemask ... I  prefer white numerals over gold on the helmets

Oh man - just realized their initials are now WFT, setting them up for all kinds of WTF jokes and even fake WTF merch.

 

All they needed to do was replace Team with Club.

 

WTF, WFT!

Eh, If they were Washington FC, there would likely be some confusion about them being a soccer team.

No idea why they're removing the helmet stripes, and the pointed serifs on the wordmark are stupid, but whatever, I guess it works for a short term solution.

 

I'm glad they're not rushing into a stupid name though. Hopefully they use this next year wisely and come up with a good identity.

The font is nice and I hope they use it in the permanent identity

 

You're kidding right? It looks similar to alot of teams, like the cardinals, falcons, seahawks.

So did someone buy the DC Sentinels domain? Now that I've looked at Washington's temporary uniform and I think they should retain the look in the new name.

Why did they use photos with clearly different uniform striping and socks?

The new pants striping is a big improvement.

I like the sound of “Washington American Football Club” better, but what’re you gonna do on such short notice?

Design-wise, I don’t like the font they chose to use. I think a serif varsity block font would be more appropriate. Also, assuming the mockup is reasonably accurate, I’m surprised they aren’t keeping the stripes on the helmet. That’s a pretty iconic part the uniforms.

Besides that being a mouthful, since we don't call soccer football, there's no need to reference the team as playing American Football. Along with them being from Washington, it would be doubly redundant.

Are we sure those mockups are what the uniforms are going to look like? That’s clearly a college uniform template, with the swoosh on the left chest instead of the sleeves. I have seen several media outlets sharing those pictures, but the team itself hasn’t. Their website only has some photoshopped old jerseys.

Time to take bets on who will be the first announcer to slip up and call them the Redskins.

 

Be glad Marv Albert doesn't call (former) 'Skins games:

 

"The REDSKINS with the touchdown!"

 

"And now they're saying it's the [new team name]."

 

(On a side note, why not rebrand as the Washington Pigskins?)
