It’s been a rough week for the NFL.

The league is facing a lawsuit that could see an owner go to jail.

And now, the league is a laughing stock because this one NFL team just made the stupidest name change in league history.

During the Black Lives Matter insurrection in 2020, woke corporations like FedEx and Nike held the Washington Redskins hostage.

These companies said that unless team owner Daniel Snyder bowed to the woke mob and changed the team’s name, they would withhold sponsorship and refuse to sell team merchandise.

Facing a severe hit to the bottom line, Snyder caved to the SJWs.

Polls showed 90 percent of Native Americans were not offended by the name Redskins.

The only people who worked themselves into a lather were the soy drinking, Prius driving leftists in the sports media.

So, for the last two years fans witnessed the absurd spectacle of the Washington Redskins playing their games as the Washington Football Team.

Now, the Redskins finally have a new name.

And it – if you can believe it – is even lamer than the Washington Football Team.

Meet the Washington Commanders.

“As an organization, we are excited to rally and rise together as one under our new identity while paying homage to our local roots and what it means to represent the nation’s capital,” Snyder wrote in a statement announcing the name change. “As we kick-off our 90th season, it is important for our organization and fans to pay tribute to our past traditions, history, legacy and the greats that came before us. We continue to honor and represent the Burgundy & Gold while forging a pathway to a new era in Washington. Today may mark the first day for the Washington Commanders, but we are and always will be Washington.”

Cue the sad trombone.

The Redskins were a storied franchise that won three Super Bowls between 1982 and 1991.

Now, they are a symbol for political correctness and the wokeification of American sports and the NFL.

To top it all off, they botched the release so badly they even mislabeled the years they won the Super Bowl in the modern era by noting the year the game was played rather than the season.

As SBNation noted, “hell, even Washington’s own Super Bowl rings list their years as 1982, 1987 and 1991.”

But with failed head coach Brian Flores trying to burn the league to the ground with a baseless racial discrimination suit, the Redskins picked a good time to rename their team to something as lame as the Commanders because everyone’s attention will be diverted elsewhere.
