Why are we talking about whippersnappers when as far as I can tell, that team's fanbase is largely made up of portly white grandpas in the suburbs?

I’m digging the helmet logo being replaced with uni number.

I don’t know about American sports, but I can’t see any reason not to just go with The Washington Go-Gos. Kind of the perfect name, no matter how you look at it, unless I’m missing something.

the missing thing is that if you took a map of the dc/md/va and marked the regions where washington football team fans live and then mark the regions where go-go music is performed and listened to there would be zero overlap

Maryland Myrmidons

The Myrmidons of Greek myth were known for their loyalty to their leaders, so that in pre-industrial Europe the word "myrmidon" carried many of the same connotations that "robot" does today. "Myrmidon" later came to mean "hired ruffian", according to the Oxford English Dictionary.

I think I get your intention here but this makes it sound like ppl that live in areas where go-go is performed don’t watch the Washington football team, which is actually more true of the nationals

point is the average football fan lives 30-50 miles from DC and looks like this

it's very odd to me how people seem to think no people of color watch football when a majority of all football players are people of color

just going off of experience as someone whose spent my entire life living within a 30 mile radius of DC. obviously the washington team has fans of color but football isn't big in the city itself

football fans are still pretty white though

Of course most fans will be white, whites compromise about 76% of the population.

9% of viewers being Black means a fuckton of viewers are Black

ok i regret posting that because i was only ever making a flippant generalization that the football team has never been a big part of DC metro culture like the wizards or even the nats are, they belong to maryland and virginia. i've met more WFT fans from baltimore (from the post-colts pre-ravens era) than i have from DC city proper. i spent six years in PG county (the home of go-go music AND... fedex field) and i still met surprisingly few fans who were native to the county. the idea of snyder using something like go-go to brand his team just strikes me as cheap. of course chuck brown was supposedly a big sk*ns fan so what do i know.

lived in silver spring now for 5 or 6 years and i don't think i've seen a single bumper sticker in that time. might be a different story if the team didn't suck

Uh they put the stadium in the richest black county in the country for a reason.

I see http://i.imgur.com/QbYzHTH.jpg-crap-festooned cars in DC proper on a regular basis. Almost always driven by black people (if I can see the driver).

I feel like I see more cars with Capitals and Nationals crap, though. Probably has something to do with not sucking.

Also never forget the local Cowboys fandom. Note the stats in this City Paper piece on black residents’ affinity for the local team, though: https://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/news/article/13042042/why-are-there-so-many-cowboys-fans-in-dc
