WFT Branding Study (Part 2)

I'm questioning why it seems like they put off the re-brand while the season was going on. Did they really pause it completely during the season? That's a solid 5 months that could have went into this process. 


I think they will align a number of things. Get some of the non footballing issues resolved, get the on field product on the upturn, which a playoff appearance greatly helped, and I’ve even wondered if we make a major move at QB to also coincide with the re-brand. A franchise QB as part of a launch...what a major selling point....

Thats fine and dandy, but the point of the post was why waste valuable time. 

 

Cleveland is going into this season as the Indians but by 2022 they'll be rebranded it appears.

That would be cool, unless that franchise QB is Sam Darnold.

True - can’t see that helping merchandise sales to @Skinsinparadise

 

I am an easy mark, didn't want to trade for Alex and didn't want to draft Haskins, yet I ended up buying their jerseys for my kid anyway.  Dan feeds off of suckers like me. :ols:  I'd probably get the Darnold jersey and expect to give it away to charity a year later when he's out the door.

I dunno about those jerseys. They look a bit on the Tampa wavelength. But with a few tweaks, I could see it. I actually kind of dig the Warhawks idea. Yea... another bird. But I’m feeling the logo, and the name feels right. 
 

Ill add it to the short list of preferred choices:

warthogs

redwolves

warhawks

We have a gorgeous rabbit. Can we go with a bunny theme? Doesn't have to be cute, could still be viscious!

Did you see the size of those fangs?!?

These jerseys seem like something Cheryl Ladd would wear with big blonde hair, matching tube socks, rollerskates, sucking a lolly pop and sitting on a ****in Camaro.

Sold!!

So just another bird in the long line of birds in the nfl.  Would rather be the first in the line of dog family

 

 

Thank you. Not just another "bird" but another "Hawks." No thanks. Warhawks is terrible.

How about Turkeys? Can keep the colors, feather motif and even goes well with the stupid “Happy Thanksgiving” joke Snyder made. 🦃 
 

After touchdowns the stadium can chant “gobble gobble gobble” while flapping our arms in the motion of wings.

Ha !

I just tried to scrape that turkey emoji off the screen of my phone with my fingernail, before I realized what it was.

 

True story.

The war hawks? Yeah, that doesn't push the Indians are savages vibe at all. What about the brown whiskey casinoers. That might be less offensive. Can give out cheap cigarettes at games. The kids would love it. :ols: 

 

Redskins is somehow less offensive.

 

It's going to be an animal. It's going to be red. There are too many birds. It's not going to be an animal people are going to eat at the games.

 

We're such a tough team, our mascot is one of the most cruelly tortured animal on the planet! Look how cool we are! lol Yeah, no.

 

Redwolves is the obvious choice and it's a great one.

That's interesting, considering the University of Louisiana - Monroe for example when forced by the NCAA to change their name from " Indians ", are now the " War Hawks ".

 

But anyway, we're not going to be the " War Hawks ".

Redwolves is for little tikes who play soccer.  Aren’t they cute?

“The Washington Warhawks travel out west to play the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday”


Yup, I agree 100% that’s a big no for me.
