There's officially a new (temporary) name for the NFL franchise that calls the nation's capital home, and JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here to discuss that major, major news. To start, you'll hear those three, plus Brian Mitchell, react to the announcement that, in 2020, the organization will be known as the Washington Football Team (using audio from their weekly Facebook Live show, which you should be tuning in for). In that segment, you'll hear why they're all largely in favor of the choice and how it was rolled out, too. Eventually, you'll then get JP's one-on-one with Terry Bateman, who is the team's new executive vice president and chief marketing officer, where JP asks Terry about how they came to the decision and how they'll handle settling on a new name moving forward. And at the end, JP, Mitch and Pete catch up after what's been a truly hectic stretch. If you like podcasts where you get tons of analysis on this next (and probably short) era and Pete denounces kids, then this is the episode for you.
