Have you been shamed for wearing Redskins team gear in public?

Recommended Posts

Curious question. I saw a long thread on social media from a Redskins fan in Loudon, VA who claims he was scolded by three random strangers on Saturday asking how he can support this team "after all that's happened." The poster did not elaborate on what the angry men were referring to: the Trent Williams drama, the suck ass play on the field, team name, or how awful Dan and Bruce are at being human beings. 

 

But then our very own Huly chimed in on that same twitter thread and mentioned that two random strangers came up and asked how she could support this team. 

 

I don't live in the DMV, I have a team logo sticker on my truck and wear a Redskins hat every now and then. I've never been yelled at, but I have had some smack talk from Cowboys fans (there's a lot of them in Florida) In fact, often times people think I'm a Seminoles fan. I do get a lot of "Damn, I'm sorry" or "Jesus why do that to yourself?" or 'Why?" when they see I'm a Skins fan, followed up by "I feel sorry for you."

 

So I'm wondering, has anyone on this board gotten publicly shamed for sporting the team gear?

Only at FedEx Field when the opponents fans take over.

 

The only Redskins related gear I wear anymore is my 'sell the team' shirt.  Prior to that, most of what I'd get is a bunch of pity from opposing fans when they'd see me rocking Skins gear.  It wasn't that long ago though that folks did like to talk trash, but we're so woeful now that people just can't even enjoy pooping on us anymore.

You mean this?  Tailgate Ted is pretty hardcore too, he even makes weekly appearances on Redskins nation.

 

 

 

 

Personally I get ragged on in South Florida for the Redskins stinking every now and then.  I've been in Disney this weekend and have run into a bunch of Redskins fans, I ended up talking in the John with a Redskins fan about Bruce Allen and what can be done about him, he brought it up to me when he saw my Redskins shirt.  Fun times.  😀

I don't wear Redskins gear and haven't for many years. I still have some though, like an Art Monk jersey, but I'm definitely not supporting Doofus Dan on his epic quest to thoroughly destroy the franchise.

Lol I was asked something last Saturday while wearing my skins jacket like how long have I been a fan of the team..

 

Being from where I'm from im asked how did I become a fan..being so far from the east coast.. not that big of an NFL fan base here.. however my best friend called me yesterday and reminded me of how bad we actually have it he apologized and came to realization and agreement with me that the Redskins organization is absolutely horrendous and he felt real bad for me LOL

Timing on this almost out of movie. Still in Disney (about to leave) went to breakfast, wearing a Redskins shirt as I often do in Disney because many wear NFL and college shirts here being worn and it often elicits conversation and bantering.

 

Anyway at the omelet station an Eagles fan started talking to me saying we have a great fan base but Snyder is ruining it. Then said his friend is a driver who told him a story of picking Snyder and family up for an event and Dan wouldn’t talk to or acknowledge the driver and when they arrived Dan’s mom went up to the driver and apologized for her son’s behavior. 

 

He he said I am a good fan for hanging in there as a fan of the team and hopes for Redskins fans sake he sells the team.

I often wear Redskins, Caps and more recently Nats hats/gear when out.

 

As far as with Redskins gear - most comments I get are some form of pity.  They feel bad for me.. Say something to the effect of they hope the Skins fix things soon.   While in line at the grocery story an Eagle fan - even a Eagle fan told me he hoped the Skins turned things around.

 

I get the sense that the general football fan public has mostly transitioned from making jokes at the expense of the Redskins and their fans to actually feeling sorry for them.  I think most think the NFL would be better if the Skins were competitive.  People can't even smack talk or take jabs at us Skins fans now.  Its like past funny and others just pity us.

Dude sitting at the bar eating a sandwich wearing a jets hat. I brought him a dessert (I'm the chef) and said "saw the hat, Redskins fan". He nodded and said thanks.

 My only foray to the Caribbean was the Bahamas long ago I don’t recall if I wore Redskins gear, I probably didn’t since it was my honeymoon.

 

The oddest place I ever saw Redskins gear is a dude wearing a Kerrigan jersey in Bergen, Norway.

 

By a mile the most interaction I get with Redskins fans coupled with other NFL teams routinely is Disney especially around Epcot.

You've obviously never met @Huly

 

Huly and @pezare the best Redskins fans I've known. They are a model of what all fans should be for all 32 teams.

I don't wear Skins gear in public.

 

I wore my Capitals Stanley Cup Champs tshirt when I went to Las Vegas and got dirty looks from the locals.

I can imagine that's a line you use when you are not wearing Skins gear as well 🙂

 

Unless I am wearing a suit for business I generally can as well.

I am surrounded by Eagles fans in Delaware.  I did run into a Skins fan at Walmart going to my car where he saw the Skin's front license plate and he was empathetic.

I am thinking about replacing the Skins sign with something else until Snyder and Allen leave.
