Fight for old D.C.!

GO SKINS

Sincerely

Chief Dan Snyder

In that vein, I posted here or elsewhere (I don't remember) that the trouble with the "Generals" is that was the name of Trump's USFL team, and fuck that guy.

it would make for a great PR marketing logo

you should trade-mark it.

but you gotta be quick, apparently thats a new cottage industry in DC, beating Snyder to the TM office.
