The Washington Football Team may remain just that.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal team owner Dan Syder said, “Sure, it’s possible,” that the name could be permanent.

“If the Washington Football Team name catches on and our fans embrace it then we would be happy to have it as our permanent name. I think we have developed a very classy retro look and feel.”

In mid-July, the team retired the Redskins name this summer and not much later, announced the team’s name would be Washington Football Team for this season.

Prior to that name being announced, Red Wolves and Red Tails were among the betting favorites for the new name.
