That’s what I was thinking. Not specifically commies, lol, but as it’s 3 syllables like their team city, I was wondering what the shorter nickname will be (e.g. Niners, Bucs, Bolts, Pats, Fins/Fish, their former Skins, etc.).

It’s not like Commanders just rolls right off the tongue. So what shortened options are there? Commies? Mandy’s? Derrs? lmao

How shortsighted, and this name idea took them 2 years. Derrrrrrrr.

This is the biggest oversight by these idiots. Every three syllable team goes by a shortened name: Pats, Niners, Cards, Bucs.

Good luck with Commies and Ders. Oof.

Plus they (foolishly) changed the number of syllables in their name (from 2 to 3).

"Hail to the Commanders" just doesn't work.

Plus the city's 3 syllables, too, that doesn't lend itself to a spoken abbreviation. It's not like (before there were 2 teams) they could just go by L.A., or others like that: Indy, Philly, San Fran, Vegas, Cincy, or even Tampa (dropping the "Bay").

So knowing that, and since they weren't relocating, to go with a name that really doesn't lend itself to an abbreviated nickname? They deserve to be called The Commies for such shortsightedness. Well, the players don't deserve it, I guess unless they sign someone to whom that'd be a badge of honor lol.
