Tanya Snyder hears boos and chants of “sell the team” on Sunday

The good news is that the Commanders won. The not-good news is that it was a long day for owner Tanya Snyder.

With Daniel Snyder nowhere in sight, Tanya Snyder invoked the team’s abandoned name at a pregame rally. The use of the dictionary-defined slur went over well, reportedly, during the gathering outside the stadium. Inside the stadium, things didn’t go quite as well.

Fans chanted “sell the team.” Also, when Tanya Snyder appeared on the video board during a video regarding breast cancer awareness (she’s a survivor of the disease), she was booed.

An account has emerged from a fan who contends that he was required by stadium staffers to ditch a sign that said “sell the team.”

Through it all, the Snyders seem to be defiant. But how much more will they take? At some point, doesn’t it make sense to just end it? They want to give the team to their children. Why would the children even want it?

Regardless, the time to sell has yet to arrive. Maybe it will require futile efforts to build a stadium or the departure of sponsors or fans boycotting the games. Maybe a season or two of no football at all for Commanders fans is exactly what it will take to lay the foundation for an eventual return of good football.

Or maybe the owners will do the right thing and vote Snyder out of Club Oligarch.

  1. As we speak 5 Billion Washington fans are buying $1.00 stock to buy the team. 5billion and ONE dollar if we are in a bidding war with BEZOS.

    Why do the fans support this ownership group?

    _________

    Because the vast majority of NFL fans don’t believe the media bias and lies that are consistently consumed by the sh33p. Not rocket science fella.

  3. ‘Also, when Tanya Snyder appeared on the video board during a video regarding breast cancer awareness (she’s a survivor of the disease), she was booed’

    So the former name is/slur is a problem but fans booing a breast cancer survivor is ok?

    Things get stranger every day

    Please state what the “lies” are about Snyder that you refer to, and who has said them.

    ***since they are in the stadium – by definition- they are supporting the team. Not sure how these fans can still go to these games. Vote with your dollar….

  9. It’s obvious most fans are boycotting… the stadium is usually filled with other teams fans

  10. Jeff Bezos is the richest most entitled human on earth. Think he’ll be any better as the owner???
