If it’s the Sentinels, I may be done with the team. Named after a movie comedy? Nah 

A movie comedy loosely based on the Washington Redskins during a strike....

Sentinals sucks.  It's also hard to say, it's just one of those words that sounds like a mumble. 

 

Why not just name them "Washington Moisture" while they're at it--it fits with DC weather for the local connection!

Washington Misery

DC Soul-destroyers

I'd take any of the above over Sentinels

Sentinels is starting to grow on me.  First its unlikely to offend anyone.  Second, even though it's from a movie, the movie is also inspired by the '87 team, so there's a tiny connection there. Third, as far as movies go, we're pretty safe with something starring Keanu Reeves and Gene Hackman.

 

Downsides:

1) I've never heard the term Sentinel used with regards to anything related to the US

2) For the "OMG they're going to make fun of our name," crowd, here's a few that'll happen: The Genitals, The Sentimentals, The Urinals,The Scent-anals,

That's what my wife keeps telling me.

 

Yeah but a team name and pegging are two very different things

Someone chase Keim out of town if he's wrong.

The Keim is probably the most level headed and least speculative journalist covering this team. I trust him more than a lot of the local guys. Hes slowly earning my Shefty level trust status lol

Keim almost never says a definitive yes or no.  He always says "unlikely" "its possible" "its probable" unless hes knows with 100% certainty on something.  Knowing Keim, theres no way hes wrong.

Would be like a big middle finger to WP to choose Sentinals and have Donaldson walk around in this skin tight x men uniform. Typical Skins.

Wouldn't it be typical to put some fine on it? That every person involved in the name change had to sign a letter of [put in English law word]. If you break it you need to pay big amount of money. 

 

Like the non deadly omerta.

I have generally been in favor, big time, of going away from not just a name with "Red" in it, but starting with "R" period. I think to fully move on and embrace the change we need to ditch the fight song and HTTR, leave it all in the past with the history. Clean break. 


I agree with that.

 

I personally still prefer Warriors, but have liked the idea to switch to DC right from the start.

 

DC Warriors
