The Washington Football Team announced on Monday that it is still looking to change its name, but some fans said on Twitter that they're going to miss the simplicity of the team's current name.
Team president Jason Wright said in his weekly brief posted on the team's website that the organization going through an "inclusive process" in finding a new mascot, and said the team won't be using the Warriors nickname that has emerged as a possible mascot by fans.
"One might look at this name as a natural, and even harmless transition considering that it does not necessarily or specifically carry a negative connotation. But as we learned through our research and engagement with various groups, 'context matters' and that makes it a 'slippery slope,'" Wright said. "Feedback from across communities we engaged clearly revealed deep-seated discomfort around Warriors, with the clear acknowledgment that it too closely aligns with Native American themes.
While the team has yet to announce its new name, fans are already mourning the end of "The Washington Football Team."
