Per John Keim of ESPN, the Washington Football Team’s team president Jason Wright has recently came out and stated the current name of the organization while they figure out a new name may stay for good. He says fans have warmed to the name. However, he stressed that there is not a popular other option for the name change.
Jason Wright was quoted with a response to possibility of the decision.
“There are a set of folks that have warmed to the Washington Football Team,” Wright said. “Some of the things that are emerging from that are the Washington Football Team has something that ties deeply to our history. It feels like that isn’t jettisoning all the things we have been in the past, whereas something that’s completely new might feel that way. It’s important for a substantial part of our fan base to feel that this is a continuation of something versus a complete reset, something brand new.”
Fans of the team are already expressing frustrations with keeping the same name when everyone was waiting for a fresh start.
