“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,” claims Redskins COO, prefacing an announcement from Public Enemy No.1 owner Daniel Snyder, doing a 180 degree turn on the team’s earlier policiy of confiscating signs at FedEx Field, many of them, critical of Snyder.
“We’ve disappointed our fans so far this season, and I’m as disappointed as they are,” said team Owner Daniel M.
