"They're really not doing their job very well" kind of describes Disney in general these days. Why start now?
My shares say they're doing their job just fine

As a matter of fact, the answer for why it was called "Goof Troop" has indeed been given. A condensed, but still lengthy, explanation can be found in this interview (scroll down till you get passed all of the DuckTales, Chip 'n Dale, TaleSpin, and Darkwing Duck information), while the unabridged full-length history of the show's creation can be found in two posts on Michael Peraza Jr.'s blog here and here.
If/when you have the time, I'd definitely recommend giving all three links a complete read, since there is some very fascinating stuff in each of them.
But the short answer regarding the show's name being "Goof Troop" was that one of the earliest ideas for the show was that it would be about Goofy as a Scoutmaster leading a scout troop of kids, but that idea fell by the wayside early on as more and more suggestions were thrown at Peraza and his team by various executives who kept changing their minds about what they wanted Peraza and the others to make the show be. When finally asked how he would make the show, Peraza ultimately pitched it as the "father and son sitcom" that the show ended up being, with the title being unchanged from the discarded scout troop idea simply because they liked how it kind of rhymed.
Meanwhile, in the finally-realized show itself, my impression that the titular "Goof Troop" simply referred collectively to Goofy, Max, Pete, P.J., Peg, Pistol, Waffles, and Chainsaw, as though to say the name simply referred to the show's main stars, this group of funny people formed by two families who lived next door to each other and had crazy adventures and misadventures both in and outside of Spoonerville. That they were a "troop" not in a Scouting sense or military sense, but in the sense that the were simply a group of people.
Though, admittedly, the name "The Goof Troop" was actually used in one episode, "Shake, Rattle & Goof", as the name of a rock band formed by Max and P.J. when they wanted to become rockstars once, with Goofy supposed to be their cameraman and Pete their manager, but Colonel Carter of Suavé Records (who was trying to swindle them out of all of their money) basically took over managing their band and left Goofy and Pete as pretty much being roadies.
