The team is scheduled to reveal its new name on Wednesday. But did a newly acquired domain name spoil the surprise?
The Washington Football Team is set to make an official announcement on its new team name in less than a week. However, some internet sleuths may have discovered the team's new name a bit earlier than expected.
According to Sporting News, a Twitter user noticed that the Commanders.com domain had been transferred to California-based MarkMonitor — the company the NFL uses to control most of its domain names for its teams and brands.
It really should be the Washington Pigskins. That's such a no brainer. You can still call them the skins without offending anyone & you have a little of the hogs in the name also. All the while, they're flipping the bird to the POS NFL FO. It's genius.
