Skip to comments.Redskins address their biggest problem -- rogue signage!(hilarious)

If the Redskins keep running their team as they are, we're going to have to do a Washington-only offshoot of Shutdown Corner, dealing with nothing but the exploits of Danny "Commodus" Snyder's Declining Roman Empire. There are a lot of great stories in the NFL this year, and it's not our intent to ignore or shortchange them, but geez ... how do you not whack hanging sliders like these over the wall?
Dan Steinberg of the indispensable D.C. Sports Bog put up a post today based on signs he picked out of various garbage cans outside FedEx Field. The signs were brought in by fans who actually watched the Redskins' 27-17 debacle against the Eagles on Monday night, and had their signs taken away and torn up by security for their trouble. Clearly, Snyder didn't want the nation knowing how dysfunctional his franchise is, and taking away signs from fans would hide that fact. After all, when your head coach is stripped of his playcalling duties and replaced by a bingo caller, and your running backs are bickering, and your top free agent spends time calling out the whole team when he's not limping to the sideline, and your quarterback is getting killed because your lackey of a general manager neglected to reinforce the offensive line in the last two drafts that were chock-full of great linemen ... sure. Taking away the signs will fix everything.

Another example of no free speech in DC.
Where is Obama he will give the team hope a change.
Fail! To the Redskins!... LOL,LOL,LOL,LOL!!!!
Kicked out of game for chanting Snyder Sucks!
The comments are pretty funny.
I was there last night. Best one I saw:
Redskins under Cooke: Winners
Redskins under Snyder: Losers
I also saw the palace guards go after a young woman who held up a sign that contained the name Tom Cruise, a known friend of Dan Snyder’s and a man of equal physical statur,e but I couldn’t make out what the sign actually said before the black berets moved in.
I’m sure it wasn’t a tribute.
Jason Campbell could have a frontline of guys the size of Andre the Giant and it wouldn’t help. The guy is a fumble machine. When he isn’t throwing passes to the other team of course.
Thanks - I saw that. Great stuff. I particularly liked the middle aged woman who used tape on an innocuous looking blanket to make a “sign”. Sneaky...
Metaphor for the DC beltway. Out of touch, completely insane, and losers. Detroit isn’t the bottom any more.
It’s the land of megalomania. Snyder fits right in...
