Warriors is not under consideration as a new name for the Washington Football Team.

In a blog post on the WFT’s website, team president Jason Wright explained that after discussions with several Native American groups, Warriors is not an acceptable option to be the new name of the Washington Football Team.

“Feedback from across communities we engaged clearly revealed deep-seated discomfort around Warriors, with the clear acknowledgment that it too closely aligns with Native American themes,” said Wright.

Wright indicated the team will not incorporate any Native American themes in its new name and logo.

The Washington Football Team began the process of a name change a year ago and its stated target is to unveil a new name and logo sometime in early 2022.

I an many others are increasingly turned off to this team by continual local media attacks on virtually everything related to the team - management, players, team renaming, everything. A team that's gone nowhere for years. I have better things to do on Sunday than watch a team that's become a joke...thanks to the media.

You clearly haven't paid attention to the past few years the teams defense is one of the best in the NFL, and riverboat Ron has been a solid coach upgrading this team to a playoff contender.

I used to love football. Now I'd rather watch soccer, and soccer bores me to death.

John Dutko

You misspelled baseball.

You’re clearly not paying attention if you think the local media is to blame for the team being a joke. That’s all on Danny boy.

C'mon, Media have been dissing the team for more than a decade. Sportscasters on (radio station ID censored) are the worst. Wash Post is second worst.
