    Located in Washington D.C.
    Formerly located in Boston (1932-36) and known as the Boston Braves (1932)
    Franchise was known as the Redskins (1933-2019) and the Washington Football Team (2020-2021)

Why they might be annoying:

    Their mascot and team name are considered racist by some.
    Although being favored against the undefeated Miami Dolphins in the Super Bowl, they lost 14-7 (1973).
    Some of their fans refer to themselves as the Hogettes. They dress in drag and wear plastic pig snouts to games.
    They signed Steve Spurrier to a five-year, $25 million contract (being the richest ever given to an NFL coach) even though he had never proven himself in the pro's.
    Steve Spurrier resigned after two awful seasons as head coach (2003).
    They've had five head coaches in the past five seasons (1999-2003).
    Owner Dan Snyder is absolutely hated by their fans.

Why they might not be annoying:

    They came back to defeat the Miami Dolphins 27-17 in Super Bowl XVII (1983).
    They were the most dominant NFC team during the mid-1980's.
    Their Pro Bowl starting quarterback, Joe Theisman, had his leg broken by Lawrence Taylor during a game.
    They beat the Denver Broncos by 32 points in Super Bowl XXII.
    Bruce Smith became the all-time leader in sacks in a Redskins jersey (2003).
