Does the Washington Commanders logo include the wrong years for Super Bowl wins?

The release of the Washington Commanders could have gone better.

The name was leaked early when the team transferred its website domain URL to the NFL’s primary domain host and a reporter from a helicopter spotted the new name inside the walls of FedEx Field. Now people are wondering why the logo appears to show the wrong years for Washington’s title-winning teams.

As many have pointed out, the years are not correct. Teams that win the Super Bowl generally do not claim the exact year the Super Bowl takes place. It goes to the team in which most of the season is played.

Washington won the Super Bowl in its 1981, 1987, and 1991 seasons. However, the logo has 1982, 1988, and 1992 on it, which were the years the title game took place.

Washington won the NFL championships in 1937 and 1942, but unlike the Super Bowl, the game back then was held in December, so both the year of the season and the final game are the same.

The first NFL championship game played in the year following the majority of the season was in 1965. The last NFL championship game was also played in the new year, and each Super Bowl was played in January or February.
