Two things I wonder about once the sale is concluded:
1. Will they change the name? No one seems very fond of the Commanders name but I read something wild the other day. George Lincoln Rockwell was the head of US Nazi party in the 60's. He was of course openly racist and also protested often against the Redskins integrating. His title, Commander of the US Nazi party. Surely this was not Dan Snyder trying to jab people covertly?
2. Would they make a run at Lamar Jackson if the sale concludes in a timely manner.
I’m a Skins fan and live in the area and I can tell you the fans overwhelmingly want a new name. If Harris has any type of clue, he will see an opportunity to win back the fan base immediately by power washing every trace of Snyder from this franchise. That begins with the name. Personally I will be pretty surprised if they don’t. Red Wolves was the name the fan base latched on to the most during the BS campaign that resulted in Commanders. Harris should hire a top notch marketing firm to run a legit operation with the fan base to determine a true favorite, hype up the process all season long, and make a selection after the season is over.
Dan Snyder is a vile piece of ****. Full stop. It would not surprise me in the least if he’s on the Nazi spectrum in terms of ideology, however his family is jewish so I doubt he’s actually a Nazi admirer. Though he is incredibly stupid and again, a vile piece of human ****, so if there’s anyone who can navigate the mental gymnastics to be both Jewish and a Nazi, it’s Snyder. Did I mention he’s a vile piece of ****?
To your 2nd point, I’ve been saying Washington is a wildcard for Lamar if things are still not sorted out with him in a couple months. Harris could green light that after he’s officially in charge. Whether it actually happens? I doubt it. Think Harris will not be so hasty and I’d be a little concerned about him as owner if he makes such a massive move right after buying the team and not even having his people in place yet. It would be a big red flag for me. And as a fan, is that a football move I’d want? Not at the cost of $250M and 1st round picks, that’s for sure.
Harris needs to come in and see things up close and personal. Spend the year working on the name and rebrand, torch the entire operation after the season, hire his people and start fresh in 2024. It’s a lame duck season but it’s a glorious sacrifice to pay to rid ourselves of the vile piece of **** that Snyder is.
