The First Amendment is back, at least to some degree, at FedEx Field. Or maybe Dan Snyder was tired of getting blasted for something that had nothing to with his reeling 2-6 Redskins’ performance.
In any event, like DeSean Jackson on a reverse, the Redskins reversed field on their recently implemented no signs allowed policy at FedEx Field.
“We have no intention of trying to control our fans’ varied ways of expressing their views on the Redskins organization and the team’s performance,” David Donovan, the team’s Chief Operating Officer said in a statement released by the team.
Snyder was unusually conciliatory in his statement.
“We’ve disappointed our fans so far this season, and I’m as disappointed as they are,” Snyder said. “I understand that some fans want to express their feelings with signs and they should do so, as long as they stay within the boundaries of good taste and don’t block the view of other fans.”
