They should take a cue from the thread title and name themselves WSFT.

I wish they didn't get over zealous and add "Wild" to Hogs.

I could have gotten used to The Washington Hogs. WashHogs for short.

Their endzone sections would become the PigPen, and the marketing team would all get bonuses for skyrocketing of merchandise sales. Let's Go HOGS!

Washington head coach Ron Rivera said about half the team is vaccinated against COVID-19.

That's a long way from the 85 percent threshold NFL teams must meet before they may be allowed to conduct regular, pre-COVID meetings and practices in 2021. The Washington Post's Nicki Jhabvala reports Rivera brought in a "vaccine expert" to talk to the team about the COVID-19 vaccine. “There’s a lot of messaging out there that they get off Twitter, and some of it’s good and some of it’s bad," Rivera said. “If we could get herd immunity, we could really cut it loose.” Teams that reach the 85 percent vaccination mark and can return to normal practices will have a clear edge on teams that don't this season. DE Montez Sweat told reporters he won't consider being vaccinated against COVID-19 “until i get more facts. I’m not a fan of it. I haven’t caught COVID yet so I don’t see me treating COVID until I actually get COVID." It will be an uphill battle for NFL coaches trying to get their very-online players to get the vaccine this summer.

I definitely agree that teams able to fully meet/practice will have a big edge on teams that don't. WAS (among other teams) is setting itself up for more failure unless players quickly disabuse themselves of vaccine conspiracy theories.

Not only will they gain an advantage from improved practice, but those vaccinated teams should be far less likely to lose guys to outbreaks and contract tracing during the season.

Damn shame. The NFL and player's union could be leading the drive here, particularly in some of the more hesitant communities.

Not sure $10 million hurts them much, but I bet Snyder having to take a backseat really grinds his gears.

Dan Snyder net worth 2.6 Billion with a B.

So it's the equivalent of losing $10 to us mortals.

He’s worth more than 2.6 billion. The team by itself is probably 6-7 billion alone.
