  • Also note how there is an Ottawa Senators, but it is not the same as the previous Ottawa Senators. So there's precedent not just for the act of taking an old name for a new franchise, but there's precedent for taking THAT old name for a new franchise. :-)

      Right, but there's still the Ottawa Senators and the Ottawa Senators, just like there were the Washington Senators and the Washington Senators (and the Cleveland Browns and the Cleveland Browns). But having a new team called the Washington Senators that is neither the Washington Senators nor the Washington Senators sounds like an Abbot and Costello bit. Sort of like the Roughriders and the Roughriders in the CFL, or naming every football team in Australia "Bruce".

      Let's just forget about it and just call them the Washington Patriots, shall we? ;-)
