Commanders Still Not Catching On As A Team Name

Two years after Washington’s NFL franchise rebranded from the well established Redskins as the Commanders, a recent poll suggests that most Virginia sports fans still aren’t sold on the name. According to an April survey, 54% of local sports enthusiasts either dislike or hate the moniker. Even among Commanders fans, 58% express dissatisfaction with the name. With only 16% in favor of keeping it, calls for yet another change are on the rise. Meanwhile, team ownership reports no immediate plans to switch names, but they are paying attention to what the fans are telling them.
