No. God no. Hell no. If I have to see that damned swamp dragon one more time, or hear more self serving back-patting about a 25 year old dinosaur logo, or see one more of his Trump-like tweets...

 

*breathes*
 

Sorry, but that guy is awful. And that’s the nicest thing I can say.

 

The only time that swamp dragon was a welcome site was on game of zones.

Why Not Washington Blues? Since they want to eliminate all ties to Reds***s, why not scrap the color scheme and go blue n' bronze like the 90's Wizards and Capitals

They still want the HTTR motto, and changing the teams colors is going to be a nonstarter

I just disagree with that line of thinking... coming up with a fake Red-something name just for the sake of putting a cartoon made up animal on the side of the helmet does nothing for me. 

 

Red wolves are real animals.

Washington Democratic-Republicans. Thomas Jefferson approves.

 

Alternatives: the Washington Whigs, or the Washington Carpetbaggers 

 

Edit: This got me thinking of the Washington Federalists, but why not the Washington Federals? They could be called the Feds for short, and the FedEx guy who got the ball rolling on all this would certainly approve. Also the above names are a joke, for those of you who couldn’t figure it out.

Yeah, I have no dog in the fight, but Redwolves is the best of the most mentioned choices IMO. The military pandering would do nothing for me, and warriors is easily the most generic of the names that get brought up.  Plus Redwolves works great with the color scheme and has excellent logo potential.

 

Redwolves sounds extremely minor-leaguish and is to me, the worst of them all.

It's actually a good name.  However, there has already been a football team named the Washington Federals . . . and they were terrible.

What the hell is a Federal?  Has anyone ever said "look at that Federal over there"?  Or "George was a great federal"?  It doesn't mean anything.  It's dumb.

I've heard of "The Fed", and "The Feds" in the context of the Federal Reserve, government agencies, federal agents, FBI, etc.  Is that what people are thinking when they want to call a team the Federals?  I guess I can buy that, but I've never heard of an individual or a group referred to as a "federal" or the "federals", just the shortened "fed".

call them the Federales so you can sound like Matthew McConaughey when you mention them

They could be the "G-Men" except the Giants have pretty much cornered the market on that one.

That they did . . . especially when they added silver to the mix in Year Two.

What? Is it suppose to stand for anything other than “government men” because that’s one of the worse ones I’ve heard, even more than the obvious joke ones because I think you’re actually being serious here

Washington Reds. Done.

 

I know we're 30 or so years removed from the Cold War, but Reds historically has a Communist connotation (heck, my dad still calls China "Red China"). Although that connotation is primarily historical, I'm guessing Reds as the nickname for a team in the nation's capital is a non-starter.

What if, now follow me here, they weren't the Reds, but merely kin of them. Wait, no
