Commanders Mandatory Credit: Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Commanders were one of many sports teams that shifted from an outdated name in recent years, finally landing on the Commanders after the 2020 and 2021 seasons as the Washington Football Team. However, play-by-play man Bram Weinstein hinted on a recent podcast episode that the Commanders name may not stick in Washington.

Weinstein appeared on the Awful Announcing Podcast, where he was asked about the Commanders’ name and whether he saw this name as the obvious choice for the team at the time.

“I think a lot of people that were fans of the team would agree with me. I never heard on that was obvious,” Weinstein told Awful Announcing’s Brandon Contes. “Them landing on an agnostic military term always felt logical to me. It symbolizes Washington D.C. power and the military. That always made sense to me.”

While he did say that the name makes sense to him, he did detail that a potential new name could be on the horizon for the organization.

“I’m not stepping out by saying that this has not landed as the perfect name for the team,” Weinstein added. “Which is why they are talking about potentially doing something about it and changing it. I would expect it in the not-too-distant future after this season to be a topic that comes up again. We’ll see how ownership answers that question.”

It wouldn’t be all that shocking to see the Commanders remodel their name once again, especially since disgraced owner Dan Snyder is no longer in town after the sale of the team became official earlier this month.
