Washington's NFL team name is unacceptable. It's been unacceptable from the outset. Where previously this name change seemed unreachable, encouraging news of pressure from corporate partners like Fed Ex make the dream of a new name possible.

It can be hard to change your identity. This is a humble suggestion for a new team, for a new era. The Washington Werewolves.

Reasons to Get Behind This:

1. It's not racially problematic.

2. Suitably "tough" mascot to compete with other tough mascots like the Tigers, Lions, Bears, Bengals, and Titans. It's also a potentially unique mascot within American sports-- no Werewolves in the NHL, the NBA, or the MLB.

3. Imagine the crowd HOWLING in the stands.

4. People would flock to October/Halloween games.

5. The songs you could play at games are classics: Werewolves of London, Bad Moon Rising, Hungry Like the Wolf, Dancing in the Moonlight, She Wolf, Can't Fight the Moonlight, Monster Mash, and more.

6. Merchandising. 

7. Alliteration.

8. Upholds a strong tradition of mythological mascots in sports: Tennessee Titans, USC Trojans, Michigan State Spartans, San Francisco Giants and more.
