If you ever wondered what the NFL media circles REALLY think of the current WFT leadership, Pro Football Talk with Mike Florio and Charean Williams left no doubt.

Florio did seek to clarify early that he was not criticizing Ron Rivera, and that he has “a ton of respect for Ron Rivera. He (Rivera) is the best thing they have going by far.”

Regarding the news that WashingtonAdmirals.com rerouted directly to the WFT site, Florio inquired, “What would be the reason to own that domain, and have it direct to your team name, if it is not going to be your new team name? “I think the more likely explanation is that somebody screwed something up.”

Williams then reminded the audience that Tanya Snyder had read the list of the 8 finalists, “Armada, Presidents, Brigade, Redhawks, Commanders, Defenders and the WFT.” Did you notice that is only seven names?

Even then, they could not get their story straight on whether there were or were not eight finalists,” expressed Florio. “Jason Wright said it wasn’t the eight names, Tanya Snyder said it was the eight names. What the _ _ _ _ is wrong with this team, that they can’t execute the simplest of (pause)?

It is (pause) Williams suggested “dysfunctional”, to which Florio insisted, “It is comical. It is beyond dysfunctional. It is laughable. It is good for entertainment…”

Williams was perhaps cynical regarding the new uniforms, “If you stay the same (WFT) you are not going to sell any new merchandise, which is the whole goal of this thing. Let’s be honest about it. It is to sell the merchandise.”

“I was really hoping for Red Tails, Mike. That doesn’t look like it will be the name. But that is the one I would have voted on,” conveyed Williams.

Florio analyzed, “A majority of the people (fans) are going to be upset with the final name, whatever it is… Again, dysfunction. Dysfunctional teams do dysfunctional things.”
