How A Professional Organization Should Go About Changing Its Name: 

  1. Admit wrongdoing.
  2. Choose a dope name.
  3. Release a 2-3 minute hype video with the new branding featuring a song from the Interstellar soundtrack and a Les Brown “You Gotta Be Hungry” voiceover.
  4. Move on.

How Washington Has Gone About Changing Its Name:

  1. Admit wrongdoing…on a statement that features the offensive name you now claim to rail against SEVEN times.
  2. Chill for a bit.
  3. Get tied up in an organizational sexual harassment scandal for the heck of it.
  4. Make an announcement that your new team name is not actually your real team name but at least it’s a new name and since when did the bare minimum not mean a damn thing in this gosh darn country anymore?
  5. Never, under any circumstance, make the playoffs.

Ladies and gents, introducing the Washington Football Team (for now). Go players!

Props to Football Team fans for still defending their squad against attacks from LeBron and others, as if they need to prove their loyalty to a franchise that hasn’t won a playoff game in 15 years.

You kiddos are getting out of hand.
