The team nickname was changed from "Crusaders" to "Sabercats" for the 2014 season.

*1 This design was apparently in use during at least parts of the 2003, 2004, and 2005 seasons, but it may have been first used prior to 2003.

*2 The 2015 design has uniform numerals on its left side only; the right side has a "sabercat" logo (as shown below).

I believe that Washington used a different "W" logo immediately prior to the adoption of the "?- 2005" logo - it was apparently a simple red "W" without a "bear face" atop it. Photographs of this one would be appreciated.
