The Washington Redskins Have a New Name and It's...
(drum roll)
(drum roll continues)
... Fucking Stupid

The "Commanders."

Yeah, this has nothing to do with me, I don't watch the NFL since their genuflection to the Kapernick Cult.

The Commanders is an awful, stupid, empty, corporate name, having nothing to do with DC or history or football or anything. It's instantly forgettable and means nothing.

The only thing I can say in its defense is this: Most team nicknames mean nothing and are empty and dumb, but only seem to mean something because they have 40-80 years of history that make them seem weighty and meaningful and "real."

The Jacksonville Jaguars and Carolina Panthers both started out as stupid, empty corporate marketing department focus-grouped names that had nothing going for them except that they would reasonably fit on the back of a jersey, and with 20 years time they've grown.... well, they haven't grown into much of anything, but who knows, in 40 or 50 more years, maybe they'll feel like they were always meant to be.

The Steelers was friggin' stupid in 1938 and now it's heavy with history.

I guess that's why you don't just get rid of your 100 year old team name because some SJWs at the Washington Post go on a crusade about it every three years.

If the name was any more generic and shit, it'd be a character class in an EA game.

it's such a generic name it's like one of those made-up team names when a tv detective show investigates a murder at a football stadium

If they were determined to cvck out to the leftist mobs, think they should have gone with something interesting-- something like "the Washington Freemasons." Really shake things up. Their logo would be the Freemason's square with the G. Or maybe the All Seeing Eye!

Aw shit, what a wasted opportunity.

What do you guys think?

Below, Jason Whitlock tells Tucker Carlson that sports wound up being the last mass entertainment reaching a really mass audience, after the audience divided into small audiences for most tv shows.

And so the left decided that they must take over sports to continue propagandizing their messaging.

And the NFL went right along with the program.

I know that supposedly the playoff games were amazing this year, and sure, boy did I used to love the two (and then three) weekends of playoff games. But... I can't get into the WokeFL.

Jason Whitlock is right -- the NFL was "conservative." It felt connected to tradition and history and patriotism and even, by reference, religion.

So it had that additional weight for me. It wasn't just a game. It was also plugging into something important, something deeply American.

And now for me it's just a game, or less than a game, really -- it's a game minus whatever being Colin Kapernick's SkinSuit is.

Eh. I did hear there were some close ones, though.
