I guess we better get used to the snark surrounding the temporary (hopefully) Washington Football Team name. Even though it makes perfect sense for the organization to not rush into a total rebrand because it would almost without a doubt be sloppy, they’re still taking it on the chin around social media.
The latest comes from the Seattle Sounders of the MLS, or technically Seattle Sounders FC, which you know, stands for “football club”, with this little zing on Twitter.
Washington Football Team was already taken https://t.co/L4bgl3oW6v

After ESPN’s Mina Kimes took a shot at the Los Angeles Football Club for being “generically named,” the Sounders responded by saying “Washington Football Team was already taken.”
Sure it’s easy, but also kind of hypocritical when you have the whole “FC” thing going on while playing in a league that doesn’t actually call their sport football.
That being said it was also kind of funny, and expected since the Washington Football Team’s name is an easy target right now.
Let’s just hope they don’t kill all these nickname movements and keep this name permanently. That would be a lot worse.
