On 2/2/22, the Washington Football Team announced their new name: The Washington Commanders (which fucking stinks, but that's not what this blog is about). With the announcement came a new logo, uniforms, and crest. Because the Washington whatever the fucks are one of the most poorly run organizations in all of North American professional sports, their new crest featured the wrong years of their Super Bowl seasons. As we all know, in Washington, you can't even get people to agree on facts.
*Shitty low-hanging fruit joke alert*in their defense, it's been a while.
I've been screaming online to nobody about respecting the league year for YEARS. I even did it in person once. My favorite dive in my hometown sold unlicensed "2015 Super Bowl Champs" gear for the Patriots after they won Super Bowl XLIX, and I called out on their lack of basic NFL knowledge (sadly, it didn't stop them from selling them).
After nearly three weeks of getting dunked by people of all shapes and sizes online for fucking up something so simple as the season they won Super Bowls (and the terrible name itself), the Commanders (perhaps in homage to the date they broke their own news?) waited until 2/22/22 to proofread their crest and resubmit for partial credit.
See, pressure works! Thank you Washington Commanders for respecting the league year. Now if only you did so something about your erector set stadium!
