Is the Washington Football Team about to become the Washington Admirals? The sleuths are on the hunt and one of those sleuths, JP Finlay from NBC Washington and 106.7 The Fan, thinks he’s busted the case wide open by typing in WashingtonAdmirals.com and finding out that it redirected to WashingtonFootball.com.

WashingtonAdmirals.com now redirects to a site raising money for food service workers.

“Understanding the weight and importance of our team name, and excitement around other name options — both internally and within our fan base — we didn’t want to risk going down a route that could be dotted with legal hurdles. The prospect of years of litigation wasn’t something that we wanted you, our fans, to have to bear as you begin to embrace a new brand.”

So you can delete Wolves or Red Wolves from the list of possible names. In September, Washington CEO Tanya Snyder revealed on Adam Schefter’s podcast that there were eight possible names in the running. With Tuesday’s announcement, that would leave six standing, if the team was being upfront about the names in the running.

Those names left include Armada, Presidents, Brigade, Defenders, Redhogs, and Commanders.
