It’s the Washington Commanders, the two years of Washington Football team is all but over. The NFL’s team in Washington D.C. was once known as the Washington Redskins from 1937 - 2019, but the name Redskins was removed amid protest of the team’s name being offensive.
Now on Wednesday the Commanders unveiled their new logo and name and it was met with a lukewarm reception on social media. "As an organization, we are excited to rally and rise together as one under our new identity while paying homage to our local roots and what it means to represent the nation's capital," co-owner and co-CEO Daniel Snyder said in a statement.
Here is what the fans said on social media, here is the reaction of the new Washington Commanders name and logo, let’s just say that fans weren’t that impressed.
