What do other teams do? Like, the Patriots have changed their logo...once. What else are they doing to make it new and exciting?
and WFT could do things with maps, with George, with the monument or other DC icons...
Point taken. I suppose they could superimpose WFT over some sort of DC icon and change that up every so often. The Pats have changed their logo more than once and have made a few subtle changes over the years in the old Pat Patriot as well as a change to the "Flying Elvis" logo and have incorporated all of their logos in different ways when it comes to merchandising.

Yeah so it’s basically three logos:
The blue cape, or whatever that is.
Pat Patriot
Elvis

all the other ‘changes’ are just repurposings.

and there are all sorts of icons amd such that could use. A football with the monument in the background, the colonnade from the Jefferson memorial as a gridiron. A gridiron superimposed over the Mall. Washington wish a football. Hell they could be shitty and make a ‘flying Washington’ logo to rival the Patriots
There are a lot of unfunny people posting in this thread.
This is a terrible suggestion. It’s not even funny!

How about the Washingtons. Just that.

The "blue cape"... Take a close look at Pat Patriot's tri cornered hat. It was actually the first logo on a Patriot's helmet. Of course the others are repurposed and in response to your question, that's part of what teams do to make things "new and exciting".

Ha. The tri point hat, or whatever it’s called! Didn’t even notice that.
but anyway, the original question was ‘what could WFT do to for merchandizing, change fonts?’ And so my response was ‘yeah, repurposing amd repositioning stuff is all that most teams do’.
One of those linked above is just ‘Patriots’ on a grey background, with a flying Elvis head. Sox caps just have the B. As do the Nets. It’s no big deal.
WFT!

Oh, we're just ignoring the Concordes?
So you want obscure facts to puncture my effective word play?

This has always struck me as hilarious: is Rough Riders so awesome a name that it really needs to be used twice in an 8 team league?
Can’t one of them at least be the Easy Riders?
I believe both teams were in separate leagues way back when and then both grew into pro teams in the same league. It is also a name most commonly associated with Teddy Roosevelt. It would be like if the NFL had two teams called the Vimy Ridgers.

The dumbest thing of all is the Ottawa Rough Riders folded, and then when a new Ottawa expansion team was formed they wanted to use Rough Riders again.

But I will say as a young man drinking a wee bit and alternating between "Go Riders Go" and "Riders Suck!" was fun. And "Yea Riders, not you!. the other, no not you either" etc.
