I grew up as a fan of the Washington football team as I became aware of football when my family lived in the DC area. I lost my love of the team when Dan Snyder took over and proved to be a lousy owner. Around the same time, I started to feel squishy about the name of the team. Only recently has the movement to change the team name caught fire. And it really has.
This ad will be playing during the NBA finals. It is a shorter version than that which aired near the Super Bowl. Powerful stuff. And very clear. Time to change the name. Until it happens, I will not be a fan of the Washington football team.
