Listen closely because this doesn’t happen often: the Washington Football Team made the absolutely right decision.
For a team embroiled in sexual harassment controversy, with multiple investors looking to sell and in the midst of the unknown of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Washington made the right call by not rushing into a new nickname.
Instead the team will simply play as Washington for the 2020 season.
That decision is exponentially smarter than rushing into a new name that would draw immediate ire from at least half the fan base, if not more.
The Washington team is a $3 billion organization. Maybe $4 billion. Hell, maybe $5 billion.
It should take its time when making a massive rebrand that will force tremendous logistical issues. And Washington is going to do just that.
Fans can still campaign for their favorite name, whether it’s Warriors or Red Wolves or Red Tails or something else entirely. Now the team has time to consider all those options, and probably many more.
It’s never smart to rush important decisions.
Listen closely: Washington did the smart thing.
