Effective immediately, Washington will call itself the "Washington Football Team" pending the adoption of a new name, the franchise announced.
This is not a final renaming and rebranding for the team; this is the name it wants to use until the adoption of a new name at some point.

Hail to the Team
Team on the Warpath
Fight for Old DC
The Washington Lobbyists.
Should have just gone with “WTF”.
Stupid is as stupid does.
WFT , darn why not WTF
How generic of them
Little known fact:
“Yankees” is only a nickname.
The team’s official name is simply, “New York Baseball Club.”
Real life is turning into Rollerball with each new day...
Like good Fake News journalists, the folks at ESPN don’t even use the name “Redskins” in any sentence of that article.
What a perfect representation of the team they live in... No name, too bogged down in politics. Just a continuing resolution.
Are they sure it is not Washington Team Football? Seems more appropriate.
Hahahahaha LOVE IT!
If I had been one of the game announcers I would have referred to both teams as the "team from Washington" and let the audience guess which team I was referring to.
F en Gay
WTF....Where’s The Fans?
How original! NOT! So rather than say here come the Redskins, now people will say, “Here come the Footballs!”
These days, I find the term “Football” offensive. Can we shut that down?
