Leadership, service, and a common, unifying mission to characterize this fan base and the DMV. A mission to live up to our championship legacy and win titles in burgundy and gold.

Things I like with the rebrand:
1) Black jerseys
2) New helmets
3) Team crest/patch thing

Renamings are usually criticized because people have to get acclimated but Commanders is a pretty good name and these jerseys are crisp!
