It’s been rumored to be taking place for the last week or so, but it was made official on Monday morning: the Washington NFL team is no longer going to carry forward with its name or logo. The news comes at a time in the country where it was ‘ripe’ to occur, even if it should have taken place years ago, in truth.
The ‘Redskins’ moniker is now gone, and the replacement has yet to be named. Some sources had speculated that the team would release the new name- at the very least- during the announcement of the retirement, but that did not occur. It does look as if they will keep the same color scheme with them, so it will be interesting to see what they can come up with.
